If everyone agreed about everything, the world would be a pretty boring place. Either that, or we'd all be characters in The Lego Movie.

I don't normally buy bike parts I don't need, but these con denti pedals seemed like a good deal. The bearings need to be repacked, but seem like they will be an easy flip.

I would go further and suggest you freeze your credit files, if you haven't already done so. I think this is a pretty common feature of the credit reporting landscape since the Equifax snafu. In...

Broadening the topic a skosh, y'all know about Rides a Bike (https://ridesabike.com/), right? Lots of Hollywood types riding bikes on studio back lots or publicity photos.

As I age (now 65), when I look at bikes with "unusual" cockpits, I mentally cut the guy some slack. I'm sure there are people younger than me who have either given up on cycling, or switched to...

Yes, I understand the trial fit. I don't have this freewheel in my hands, nor am I expecting the seller to have a hub to try this trick on. I'm interested to know how (if at all) Sachs marked their...

crank_addict swears by the Sachs/Maillard LY-92/94/96 freewheels. They are thick as thieves on eBay (both 7sp and 8sp, make sure you pay attention). I've not yet pulled the trigger on one, but will...

I know y'all said "80s", but I really like my 78 Volare. For the past couple years it's gotten the most mileage of all my bikes when the polar isn't vortexing. Even more than my Redcay.
