I hate sad endings.
Gorgeous build. As a crappy-surface and bad-weather rider, I can only sigh.
I really love the unusual fork paint treatment besides the usual Drillium Dude attention to detail.
Not too many road bikes are really stable hands-free.
Consider yourself lucky with the Professional - great bikes.
Man, I really miss the riding north of Philly. Happy riding!
I have a similar problem on the rear end of my Stan Pike - I have some Esge mudguards. Yes, those Paselas run large. Since my rear dropouts are vertical, I have solved the issue by supergluing a...
My hat is off again to you, Dnvr!
Always loved old Treks. Built one for a former love, in 1976. 531 is wonderful stuff!
This. I would mutter "twit" for that infraction. But since I am 64, slow, and fredly in habit and dress, that's about all.
Chapeau! Your moniker says it all!
I'm old enough to sometimes forget why I'm here now.
Dudel oftimes casts a wide net; undoubtedly here in reference to the wonderful hit "The Bug", chorus of which goes:
Sometimes you're the windshield
Sometimes you're the bug
Sometimes it all...
I'm sorry to hear of your diagnosis. Your wisdom and perseverance has been inspirational to me, Bill. This subforum is a special place, thanks to you and the others here.
It may be that you have developed allergic asthma - one's immune system often goes wonky as the years pile on. I'm not sure what allergens are in your neck of the woods, but right now in the east,...
I forgot that they had this - thanks for the suggestion. I'll sit on it for a week or two and if I don't hear from them, I'll contact the ombudsman.
And - no response from NPR. By this time, I don't expect one, and I also don't expect that the managing editor of the piece gets the message either, let alone the presenter.
Agreed - especially for online computers. But to go with Win7, I would have had to trash a $70K camera and buy a new more expensive one that would work with more modern operating systems. Since my...
Hey - since there are more than a few forumites who seem to have a distinctly geeky bent, why not have a subforum for Asperger's cyclists? We've already got more than one which seem to specialize in...
Erm... now that we've drifted into freehub territory for a few days, and me knowing nada about this, can one buy such a freehub and simply buy individual cogs/spacers to make one's own custom ratio,...
When you think of the hundreds of thousands of people-hours it took to hatch these objects of affection/affliction, it really is a wonder that an ordinary pedestrian customer support person can help...
Sorry, too easy!
Yes, that's the one. I know, it might be moved somewhere else - but I figured that this subforum is where those bicyclists with the most life experience (which I equate with wisdom) hang out. Cheers,...
I had to look at the calendar to make sure it wasn't the first of April. During a radio piece on NPR about bike commuting in Los Angeles, I heard a citizen motorist state calmly that she felt free...
Us near strangers on BF are also happy and relieved at your recovery too. You are indeed a lucky man! Cheers, Bruce!
I'm still in the toe clip camp, at least for commuting. However, sometime soon I'm going to mount Speedplay Frogs and try them - they're different than many as your foot can rotate - since I have...
I've been considering a rear-mounted GoPro for a while, for documentation purposes.
Metric Man, The GoPro you were using had good resolution - which one were you using?
