  5. Are Performance Bikes and Bike Nashbar the same people?

    Sounds like a silly question, but their websites look really similar and they have similar prices on a lot of things. Performance has rubbed me the wrong way, so I'm determined not to shop there...

    Sunglasses: Really dark lenses?

    Been riding and posting [1] for a while. There's a group at work that does occasional morning rides, so I'd drive into work and then ride my bike for a while. I have recently realized how silly...

    Not to out myself as an idiot, but when I moved to Austin to go to school I would see the bike racks in use on the bus, but I was always too embarrassed to ask how it worked. I eventually walked up...

  12. Rear wheel dislodges when hammering up hills!

    Got a 2004 Aluminum Specialized Allez Sport with quick-release skewers. Yesterday I started up a medium hill, and halfway through pedaling got really difficult. I suck, but not THAT bad, so I...

    Wow. I've always thought I've been reasonably good with bike maintenance, but I've never heard this one, and it has been a while since I replaced the chain.

    Thanks! Maybe next time I won't look...
