    I have a creaking noise coming from my crankset area (potentially pedal axles, cranks, or BB) that sounds almost like the metal equivalent of stepping on old wooden floorboards. It doesn't tend to...

    What about gloves for sun-protection? <---what I'm mainly worried about (also for padding).

    From what I've read: I'd go with fully charged in the refrigerator, preferably in a closed container. Of course, you'll have to let them warm up a bit before they'll give you much juice.

    Where do I go from here?

    It is becoming more and more frustrating to not have anyone around to discuss cycling with! My auto-centric family thinks I'm out-of-my-mind, and the neareast LBS is an hour away by bus. Even that is...
