    When she said that there was a bike rack out front and you should park there, you should've said "there's car parking spaces up front too, does that mean drivers need to park there instead?"

    I'm not sure but you might be able to take a vice grip(locking pliers) to it and get it off. You'd have to be very careful not to scratch the frame.

    The ONLY time a fat bike will give you any advantage is in snow and ice. In any conditions other than that, you will be way less efficient overall than you would on a mountain bike. However, if you...

    Confused about aluminum.

    I had always thought that an aluminum frame would fatigue based mostly on the mileage put on it. But a guy at one of the local shops says that it's more dependent on the amount of years that it's...

    I just put together a new bike that I converted to single speed. However, on my test rides, I noticed that the rear freewheel/hub/axle seems to be making an annoying and loud sound when pedaling....

    It's actually a 3X6 drive train. But I'm still mostly concerned about frame failure. Will the aluminum on the Trek be more likely to last than the hi-ten steel on the Giant?

    Are there any specific reasons as to why? Is it due to the hi-ten steel frame on the Giant vs the aluminum on the trek? Or is it the weight?

    I do own a hi-ten steel "1995 Giant Attraction" mountain bike. Mostly debating whether to use that or if my Trek hybrid would be better.
