Fred did all sorts of things that were practical but were things that only he did. I think that, in that picture, there is a sew-up on the rear and a clincher on the front. His granny gear is good...

To your point, then, Andrew R Stewart, it is not a case of if, but when. I think that the "when" is dependent on if the frame is straightened or not. Your point is well taken that, if the frame is...

I have the 130 and the RTL510. My choice of the 130 was based upon my knowledge that I will never do power meter, heart rate monitor, cadence, or any other sensor-based stuff beyond the RTL (not that...

^^^This. It's dead, Jim. It has crossed the rainbow bridge. It is pining for the fjord. If it were a person it would be at room temperature. It has gone into the light.

This seems to be sort of a Schrödinger problem. Is he in the box or, as many in this thread opine, is he completely outside of the box? As Schrödinger would suggest, we cannot know if he is in the...

I had a Craftsman self-propelled mower and a McLane edger. They both went belly-up at about the same time after 15 years of service. I put them to the curb for Juan the Metal Man to take care of.

You sold a bike and don't know, for sure, if the bike was made out of steel or if it was made out of aluminum.

About once a year I take one of my old tubes and a 1/2" arch punch and reduce the tube to a bunch of 1/2" circles. That makes about three lifetimes worth of patches, but as long as I'm whacking the...
