It's annoyingly difficult to find headphones that a) will stay in your ear; b) have mic and volume control buttons on the cord; c) don't make hurricane sounds whenever one engages their guads.

I'm currently using these and am happy with them. They're good on all fronts, but not orgasmic.

Ahh. I previously used https://goo.gl/9Fr46J - but the left one died. actually, those are on sale for $20 so I'll probably just order another pair. the evil I know!

i'll take iphone headphones (esp. the new gen) people don't want (seriously, poor college kid!)

I have a knack for ruining headphones in <1 month so at this point i just buy the cheapest i can find. usually jvc "gummy" ones.

I'm with Mikey. If you guys really have headphones sitting around that you don't want, I'll take a pair. I'll even pay the shipping

Does anyone have short sleeve jerseys they don't wear? All the ones on nashbar seem pretty crappy and I don't want to pay for one with logos. I'll pay shipping. 6'1 165lbs, short torso long legs.

The pair I had before the current was Yurbuds. I thought they had below average sound, cheap construction, and the rubber thingies constantly fell off. I was almost glad when, after half a season, the cable frayed and they became kaput. My summary of Yurbuds is: the cheapest **** one can outsource, with some sexy rubber plugs on top.

I've been using a pair of Bose ear buds for the last 3-4 years and they are still working great. Don't need any over the ear clips to stay in my ear, and the sounds pretty good for an ear bud type.

I never bought the headphones themselves. You can just get the covers which I think are, yes overpriced at $10, but hold my headphones in. Simply requires a dab of gorilla glue on the contoured ear piece then put them on your earbud of choice.

are all wheel skewers (of the same hub width) created equal?

the front skewer on my Reynolds carbon clinchers is on it's way out. It loosens itself during a ride, and im afraid that soon I am going to lift my wheel off the road or bunny hop an obstacle and have the fork separate from the wheel.

recommendations? don't need nething fancy, but would prefer something both functional and aesthetically pleasing. bike is brushed/raw alu caad9 w sram/shimano mix and aforementioned carbon clinchers.

In my experience, you can't do better than a closed cam Ultegra skewer.

i'm with caloso. internal cam skewers are significantly better and the ultegras are rock solid.

I'm wondering with the millions upon millions of miles ridden on external-cam skewers without failure, how much improvement is really improvement vs. reading sheldon brown's preferences for them.

but, really doesn't matter.

I do fine with generic sram/williams/reynolds skewers for 95% of my rides. I have some kcnc skewers that are nice, but the back can creak so I only use it when I care about the 90 grams.

I use Zipp aero. Steel on the training wheels, titanium on the race wheels. Whatever you get, make sure yo can crank the rear down enough to keep the dropouts parallel and thus the hanger straight.
