I would love to see more folks cycling. It's good for health (mental and physical) and for this blue marble we live on. If that means riding an inexpensive bike from a discount department store, I'm...

Goof is OK, but my favorite, which is not as easy to find, is a product called Citra Solv. It's a concentrate, but I always use it straight. A little goes a long way.

You may be doing a lot more riding than me so replacing bar tape every 3-4 months seems extraordinarily excessive to me.

FWIW, I replace mine on an as-need basis which is more like 3-4 YEARS, And...

I think this is one of the most overlooked tips when using electrical tape. If the final wrap(s) have tension, the tape will slowly unwrap exposing the sticky glue. I keep a scissor handy for the...

Look at it from his perspective.
He's riding faster than you, after he passes you, you sprint ahead of him only to slow down again forcing him to pass you again. He couldn't know that you were...
