    I got a bottle of 5 hr energy with my last set of tires. We must be shopping on the same website. I drank it before a race last month and honestly couldn't feel any effect at all. First time I ever...

    OK, battery couldn't be 11 years old. That car is on its second or third. Anyway, make sure it's clean.

    I put bar end shifters on a cross bike I built and kept hitting the front of my thighs on them when getting on and off. Removed them and now they're on my touring bike.

    That's funny, I just started doing the same thing. 46 this year, 46 mile ride on my birthday. Actually rode 50 though. I'm planning on doing this every year from here on. Cool your family...

    I ride once in a while with a guy that is really strong. He's able to hang in pretty quick group rides on a single speed. Every time someone brings up equipment as route to getting faster he always...

    Cable replacement is pretty easy. I just installed a Jagwire road bike kit and it was pretty good stuff. If you're mechanically inclined it shouldn't be a problem for you.

    I had that same bike a size or two larger when I was a teenager. I didn't appreciate it then. The green and white with chrome is awesome. Nice find.
