    My club has a couple of keepers who share the burden. I've suggested just using an online solution like BikeJournal, but the minor problem is that we need a solution that's NOT honor-based. We award,...

    That looks like a basic bento box, and it'll work fine. If you like the concept but want a better quality one, just google the term. Even the nice ones aren't terribly expensive.

    Here's a timely link that someone in another forum posted. Just to test your knowledge on safe and legal bicycling. I only went as far as the end of the first section of the adult test, and it looks...

    My brother had a lab that wouldn't play fetch unless it involved swimming. Even in the winter. Cold water might bother us A LOT but it doesn't seem to bother labs. Maybe has something to do with...

    Um... the cadence chart finds the cadence. One axis is the gear you're in, the other axis is your speed. The speed chart has gear on one axis and cadence in 5 rpm increments on the other axis, and...

    Sounds to me like a coyote. I've got 'em here in mid-Michigan, even had to rescue one of my barn cats from one a few months back.

    Do your annual overhaul, and if you want to 'improve' it some more, consider nicer wheels. Beyond that, upgrading the groupo is usually a money-losing proposition - just get a new bike.

    Riding salmon increases your closing speed with cars by double your speed vs riding with traffic. Being in an unexpected place always increases your chances of an accident, and simultaneously giving...

    I don't know where you'd find parts. BicycleMan claims to have a few parts in stock. Is the part steel or aluminum? Steel can be brazed, but if it's aluminum you might end up having to fabricate...

    I hear ya. Some people want the 110/58 so they can use that 24T granny and a 48T or 50T big gear. It was used for touring bikes. That size is still around, but can be very challenging to find,...

    As always, what gets me is the label "unfriendly" which gets applied to non-wavers. Are they, really?

    I think that's what Retro was getting at. What you have works. If you get something else, expect it to be different. Beyond the obvious, what wisdom do you expect from the group?

    Been there, done that. Now I get a new patch kit every spring. Leave them in the bike too long and those tubes can dry out even if they've never been opened.

    I am in the camp that says carbon spoke covers will do the trick. Failing that, a nice set of AeroJackets would sort-of work. Otherwise, in the world of dork disks, more unobtrusive is better. :)

    That's my opinion too, but in less complimentary terms. From the manufacturer's point of view, 2 rings = cheaper to produce.
