I concur -- go back to the doc. As a heart attack survivor, I know how frustrating it can be to call or go back only to be told things are okay and you're overreacting. It's not necessarily so, and...

Many years ago a friend was riding home from the bike shop on his new purchase, and the front wheel slipped into a sewer grate.

Just curious -- what sort of straps did you use to hold his feet in? We've been working with our 14-year-old high-function autistic son; he'll ride now and like it, but his feet won't stay in...

It's your business whether you want to wear a helmet, and people who insist on gratuitous advice should probably mind their own.

But i'm curious why you don't wear one. In your position you must...

Not all us Madison riders are arrogant, though I agree some are. I rode about 15 miles around said Madison, on a tandem with my 14-year old daughter. Sunny and hot, but nice.

Thanks Steve. I found it on the Cateye website after all. --under "older stuff.". But the manual reminded me hoe complicated this one can be. Anyone out there have a computer they really like?

Manual for Cateye Mity 3?

I've got one, and it still works, but I can't figure out many of the functions or settings; my manual is long-gone, and the Cateye site doesn't seem to list it.

I know you said you put the saddle back exactly as before, but I'd double-check, and maybe consider adjusting it anyway. I had the same symptoms and just stony change --up I think-- made all the...

Avid single digit 7 brakes release

There's probably a simple answer (but no dumb questions, right?): is there a quick release -- or similar fast fix -- for these brakes, either on the lever or on the brake itself? I need to...

Just bought a Yakima roof rack and carrier, once I realized, the hard way, that our tandem won't fit into our CR-V, no how, no way, and sticks out way too far on a rear carrier. Kind of painful to...

When I first got them, I didn't tighten them enough, so that when I tried to twist out of the pedal, the clip moved instead. I fell over on my side, in slow motion, and had trouble getting my foot...

I know lawyers can be no fun, but an initial consult ought to free, and you may forfeit some rights if you don't act. Leaving a cable out like that is pretty reckless, and that's why companies carry...

The lawyer in me says get the details and at least talk to an attorney -- you never know how these injuries play out, and you want to make it less likely to happen to someone else. Was your bike ok?

I find myself using hand signals as I push the grocery cart.

I'm also amazed when I cycle (for the first time)over a road I've driven, how many subtle hills there are.

I think the feedback was just what i needed.
