    Gorgeous bike. In 1985, I bought my first mountain bike, a Ross Mt. Whitney. Like yours, it was chrome plated. Great bike. We had so many adventures. I left it behind in a move in 2005 and truly...

    I have to disagree. I lived in Portland for 14 years, so I know what winter there is like. It's not bad. After a month of cold and wet, you get used to it and just wait it out until March. The...

    One of my bikes has a pair of Schwalbe Marathon XR tires 700x37 (Schwalbe discontinued this model in 2010). They're 5 years old and have about 20,000 km. I've ridden them on all kinds of mixed...

    LOL!

    As for the French terms being bandied about, I live in France and I've never heard anyone use the terms constructeur, homage, and vielle de velo when talking about bikes. Well, maybe if...

    I was wondering how the OP's insurance works in this case. Our HO policy covers the bikes in our garage, but only if our garage is locked. If we leave the door open, we're responsible.

    A couple years ago, we had snow at the end of August. This year, the temperature swings have not been so extreme, but it's been much wetter than normal. July is normally dry, but last month was the...

    On flat terrain, speed is mostly about power output. Weight isn't a big hindrance and can even help if it allows you to pack on more muscle to increase your total power.

    In the hills, though,...

    If you ask a bunch of cyclists which is harder, running 26.2 miles or cycling 100 miles, of course most are going to say running.

    If you ask on a running forum, you'll probably get the opposite...

    There's no doubt that Greg was fit 25 years ago, but he's not exactly setting an example for how to stay fit.

    You can get a new touring bike on bikes direct for about $600 (Windsor Tourist). I don't have one, but the specs are alright and I've heard good reports about them.

    I'll take my chances. ;) What I've heard about the Google cars sounds very promising. Even if completely driverless cars don't become a reality, perhaps computer assisted cars will be. I'd be...

    I don't hate cars or drivers, but what I don't like is being treated like a second class citizen on the road. Roads are a public utility and while you can drive vehicles on them, they don't have...

    I'm 5'6" and have a 50cm crosscheck. It's not a bad fit, but I think a 52 would have been better. 46cm for the Pacer would be way too small for you, IMO.

    What really helps me is having a bottle of 1/2 water and 1/2 orange juice. It's very easy to digest and gives me quick, but long lasting energy. I like to drink it when I have about 40-50k left.

    I'd get the 7.5. You'll be less likely to want/need to upgrade it. I have a 7.7FX that I bought in 2008 and it gets lots of use. The mix of Ultegra/105 components are still going strong after...

    This has happened to me a few times too. When it does, I usually pull over and let them pass. I figure...

    I used that url and it gave me "meando", which I guess could be pronounced me-ann-doe or mean-do. I kind of like mean-do. :)

    No bugs!

    I enjoy riding all year too, but I have to admit that summer is my favorite. Light clothes, no threat of ice, and long days. 2 months without needing a bike light is great. Plus, it...

    If more were better, everyone would ride Nuvinci hubs. If less were better, they'd all be on singlespeeds.

    The best, as mentioned, is having the right gears for your terrain and load. That's...
