    no he doesnt. that's actually about the perfect amount of slack on the street. if you're running it any tighter you're wasting energy.

    EDIT: With brakes that is.

    He talked about himself too much?
    Chain tension?

    Some people just don't get it.

    Cyclists who hate bikesnob are like metalheads who hate "Spinal Tap": you have to assume they just don't get it.

    Primary: little orange 70s LeJeune track bike, AKA Tomato Frog, and (secondary) a noisy old Botecchia mixte frame ten-speed of similar vintage.

    I'm pretty sure most of us are more than capable of supplying our own daily dosage of sarcastic smart-ass bull**** nobody needs to hear, thanks.

    yes.

    he could write for the New York Times Magazine or Harpers or the New Yorker in a heartbeat.

    maybe he does...last I checked, he is still anonymous.

    I didn't actually know what the hell those were until about 2 weeks ago when I got to see them up close on someone else's bike. Before that I just thought they were little strap-on snot-wads.
