    That works if you have the schedule or time to watch live programs. The resolution also sucks in most cases, even with a high-bandwidth connection.

    I checked out DishWorld and it does look like...

    Mutual funds generally get you more diversification than an ETF because ETFs usually either track a standard or proprietary index. But there are new ETFs emerging all the time, so the product gap...

    Yes, most TDF riders use chest straps, although they're being unnecessary for the pros because they all have power meters. My issue isn't with chest straps per se, but Garmin's crappy ones. I think...

    Actually, that didn't come into play so much because of "PC" reasons, but because the vast majority of Americans don't live near large Asian communities and have no clue whether someone's Japanese,...

    These issues are why I'm waiting to see an honest review of the new Mio HRM that ditches the chest strap for a wrist monitor. They claim the same accuracy as the chest versions and based on what I've...

    And I'm forever amazed at the number of riders -- and not new ones either -- that I hear shifting under load (e.g. on actual climbs rather than just before they begin), cross chaining, etc. As I've...

    This would be a completely different way to solve your problem, but does your cable company offer its own managed routers? Many are starting to offer that now because essentially they serve the dual...

    Not necessarily condemning the guy, but NYC is home to the "work hard/play hard" types that have to prove something every time they go out and do anything, be it at work or on their free time. You...

    Really, the only component that might give you issues are the wheels. And it's not like they will fail spectacularly on you or anything. If they're not a good match, you'll either have a wheel that...

    There is no correct answer because different people have differing goals. Secondly, there is no such thing as "an index fund that tracks the U.S. bond market." There is a market for Treasury bonds,...

    There's nothing inherently wrong with either of those, but both approaches are fairly complicated and take quite a bit of money to begin. Real estate, especially, isn't for beginners, unless you want...

    BTCNJ is a good club and does do a lot of rides around Fort Lee. It's by far the biggest club in the area, with about 1,700 members. I've been a member since 2008 and enjoy riding with them.

    As everyone is saying, you're not really going to get "in trouble" if you shift the rear under load but you risk a chain drop (at least if you don't have a chain catcher) on the front if you do that....

    And that's about all you can do. Use a straight lane, if there is one or take the lane if you're going through an area where there will potentially be lots of turns. I learned that lesson the hard...

    Just curious as to why you immediately went to replacing it as a result of shifter wear? Usually replacing the RD cable, cassette and/or chain will solve that issue.
