    It's a rather wild time to get into bicycling! The categories of bikes, the technology, what people do with bikes, these are all changing very rapidly. Don't worry if you can't keep all the...

    Here is my nifty table for bike tire pressure: Interdependent Science: Bicycle Tire Pressure

    It depends on how much weight you're carrying, along with the width of the tire.

    My bike stays outdoors all the time. I'm not happy about that, but that's life!
