    Bike-specific: Lezyne. Their quality meets or exceeds that of Park Tool. It's not that I'm saying Park Tool is bad, as I have plenty of things from them that I love, but Lezyne's usually better (and...

    I use paraffin, with the crockpot method. I don't know if it makes my chains last longer, but it does make sure I don't get oil on my pants. Considering that my two chains have about 2-3k miles and...

    It's both. People are breaking the law, but I don't believe that most of them realize it. The proposed solution of having street markings indicating where bicycles should be traveling sounds good to...

    They might recommend trying a shorter or higher stem. It'll probably depend on the height relationship between your saddle and handlebars and reach. Usually sore shoulders means the bars are too low...

    You may wish to do some research on randonneuring. Depending on whether or not you know exactly where you want to go, you might be able to make yourself a cue sheet and stick it on top of a handlebar...

    Obviously buying a used bike is cheaper than buying new. Your argument is not compelling in the least.

    I find my Bern Brentwood to be reasonably cool. Hotter than wearing nothing, cooler than my wool cycling cap. I am, however, used to working in ridiculously hot temperatures, and there are probably...

    The linked article was objective and well-written. Though the title does seem to imply that the article is going to be bashing cyclists, it instead offers a pretty accurate account of the situation....

    I have worked with tons of people who have these exact reasons to bike, yet do not. The exception is usually people who are not allowed to have licenses, and given the chance, they would choose to...

    Racks and panniers are to some extent a 'you get what you pay' for type of deal, but some good, cheap solutions exist. Be aware that if you get panniers, many of them will have a hook or bungee near...

    Yeah, that will prevent him from driving. So, should we lock him up indefinitely or will 5 years be enough to make him not drive when he gets out? 10 years? I don't see why an increase is any more...

    That was a typo. It was meant to read "families of victims" instead of "victims". Although, in a sense, they are also victims of the act.

    Good reason. This is often the most important motivator for myself to do things I should've already been doing for myself.

    You may wish to consider Carradice style bags. You may also wish to consider whether getting a car rack is going to be worth it in the long run. I personally hate putting bikes into cars and risking...

    I don't have any of the components you've listed, but I also have never heard any complaints about those components from LHT owners, either. Good luck on your decision.

    The OP is looking at mountain components, except for the Sora FD on the Surly. Yeah, Sora is lame, but I can't see it being a big issue on the front, and FD's are pretty cheap to replace if you run...
