    In the cooler weather I'll switch to a more upright bike with a softer saddle. Then I wear snowboard gear, which is windproof and adjustably breathable. It doesn't get too cold here, around freezing...

    I've never yet had a tire wear out the tread. They always seem to delaminate or bulge, or be taken off and set aside to make a style change.

    The law seems pointless, except to punish someone who's already hit a bike. Where are people being passed so close to begin with? What nutty driver doesn't give that much room on his far corner to...

    Thanks to a link in the 50+ forum, this article describes "single tube" tires used in the first part of the 20th century in America, and their repairs. Some of them sound familiar.

    Yesterday on the ride home I was in the bike lane going up Hazel with its usual traffic, around Winding. I rode over a rock and it squeezed out from under my front tire. It went TONK against the door...

    I enjoy the idea and have read up on it but have not had a chance to try it. The combination you usually hear of is a campy 10s shifter with shimano RD and 8s cassette

    Strava free trial - should I bother?

    I got an offer to try Strava Premium free for a month. Maybe you did too, I don't know. I run Strava on an iPhone 5S. I own a heart rate band and watch, but not sure if it will talk to my phone in...

    That's exactly what I was thinking. nashvillwill that hybrid in your profile is a decent all-arounder. But a stiff drop-bar bike with clipless pedals will take you up two gears, making it more fun...

    Dang, that is one filthy and well-used bike. Don't go look what NOS 42-tooth chain rings cost, you'll cry. Find a compact crankset that looks good, the whole thing would cost less than the ring.

    I think I pointed this out before but if the tube is a lot smaller than the tire, patches don't work very well because they reinforce something that needs to stretch. However it's not a problem for...

    I saw those folding trikes at Wal-Mart and can't figure them out. They don't fold enough that the folding action is useful.
