    I've found that 5-hour energy is good for stuff like staying alert during long drives or getting through the last few hours of a double shift at work. I can't imagine trying to use it to power an...

    I really like my DVS/Cinelli "Luster." (Not those horrible grey/blue things. The black ones.) The cover for the laces is great for clips and straps, and the sole is stiff but walkable.

    My bikes only ever get to a point where they're done*, with an asterisk. That means everything I originally set out to do has been handled, but I reserve the right to make future changes as I see fit.

    I put mustache bars on my old Schwinn Racer and I like them a lot. Obviously not as many hand positions as drops, but I haven't found it to be a problem. I stayed with the original stem though, which...

    C'mon iab, you're smarter than that. Steve posted the picture of that bike to show, in one image, what he likes about C&V by showing what he doesn't like about modern bikes. Anyone who's pretending...

    In my limited experience I've found too small is much more forgiving than too big. My Tempo is, according to conventional fitting, "a little small" for me. It's a 21" (53.3cm), and I'm 5'10. I've had...

    Three reasons:
    1. Aesthetics. The old bikes just look better. Better lines, classier paint schemes. Most newer road bikes look like the bastard offspring of a stealth bomber and a roadside...

    There is a world of difference between "many" and "the vast majority." Advocacy through hyperbole is self-defeating, as the listener is encouraged to tune out when the reasons presented for change...

    Wow. The vast majority blow through red lights? Speed limits, many do, but not by a lot. Stop signs, sometimes, and somewhat more or less depending on the location, time of day, and familiarity with...

    Any Way to Re-Order Gallery Pics?

    It looks like the pictures in my photo album appear chronologically in order of upload. Is there any way to adjust the order in which they appear in the album once they're already in there?

    Including motorists. I drove a car for a looooong time before I ever got myself a bike, and contrary to perceptions around here, "most motorists" are not scofflaws that lob live grenades at cyclists...

    That was pretty funny. Probably helps that I've seen each Commandment on display in A&S at some time or other. Well played, VTBike. ;)

    I'm going to have to disagree with this.

    I've been into bikes a bit more than a year now, which isn't much time at all, but the first thing I learned is they are not terribly complicated machines....

    Sturmey-Archer Question

    My S-A AW hub (1969) doesn't like to downshift under any kind of load. If I'm going up a hill and need to dump it down a gear I have to coast for just a moment while I make the shift. Is this...
