    You might also consider stepping around the issue entirely by switching to direct pull v-brakes. They also stop much better than cantilevers (i.e. less effort from hand, harder braking). This means...

    What you heard is correct. I got rid of this problem on my old cross bike by moving to a fork crown mounted cable hanger.

    I agree with Higgins that it sounds like a broken derailleur spring.

    I'm sorry: no, no, and no. Three strikes.

    1. a) You obviously have a different understanding of the meaning of "to quote" as compared to the rest of us; and b) the ultimate issue isn't the...

    Watch the video again. You really think so? At the time of impact the car is barely a third of the way across. The bike impacts the front of the car. The car would not have had time to clear the...

    There is a video in the article linked. Here is a screenshot from the video. It is not very high resolution but I'm sorry, the road is straight as an airport runway and there are no obstructions. If...

    A) You are quoting me out of context. The phrase which you quoted isn't even a full sentence in my original post. It is an independent clause, the second half of a longer sentence which was...
  8. 10 speed mountain cassette with non-11t high gear possible?

    I use a 11-34 cassette on my touring bike. I find that I use the 11t and 13t cogs in my cassette a handful of time per year, at best. I've looked at the 10 speed mountain cassettes on the market and...

    You're using a strawman attack to accuse me of using a strawman attack? Never seen that before. Well done.

    My opinion is supported by three paragraphs of carefully worded explainations. Your post...

    Shimano freehubs are known for being quiet. You'll need to take the wheel apart and lace the rim to the new hub with new spokes. Might as well buy a new wheel and keep the old one as a backup.

    Based on how often I have to change my pads: the front by a long shot. I hardly ever use my rear brakes.

    I'm sure I'll get flak for saying this, but given your unnerving description about the owners, perhaps think about getting a *** and learning how to use it, and not just against dogs.

    There is one in Dawson City, but by then he is off the Klondike and well within safety.

    The driver is at fault. The motorcycle rider should get a speeding ticket, but there is no law that says you are allowed to turn across another vehicle's path simply because they are speeding. The...

    That would only be true if both the old and new bikes are extremely cheap $150 department store bikes. His bike has brifters. Even assuming lowest end components, we are still looking at a $600-700...

    I wouldn't be discouraged. Take some time to get used to the new geometry and adjust your riding technique.

    Have you considered getting a new stem to raise the bars? This will be a lot easier and cheaper than going to a flat bar.

    That combination will get you 35km/h at 90rpm. If you can maintain that for more than 5 minutes on a beach cruiser, you should consider training for racing.
