Whose taking it personally? This is what I hate about texted conversation, sarcasm and humor are totally lost, do I really have to use a smiley emoji? Is there even a sarcasm emoji? If we were having...

"Ruggedness, reliability, and reputation clearly enter into the equation, and that's why the vast majority of racers use Campagnolo or Campagnolo-copy single-pivot derailleurs."

What you see covers most situations. The roll was meant for cosmetic brushes, from a Chinese commerce site, cost ~3 USD. I bought 3, have pens in the second and the third is waiting in the wings....

I'll go with the bike is entirely irrelevant. Ride any damn bike you wish.

That said, one bike may be more physically taxing than another. An American cruiser may be tougher to ride a hundred...

I'll add a couple to the good doctor's list: being bull headed and too stupid to realize that you can't do it. Also planning an "out and back" helps as, at the 50 mile point, you have no choice but...

I'm surprised nobody's mentioned the venerable Lyotard Berthet pedals. These are still available somewhat affordably in spite of the current craze over old French things. They're easy to flip and...

Upright, no drop bars, no helmets, no disk brakes, normal clothes. That pretty much describes 95% of the cycling where I live.
