    Oh, I forgot to mention... As of Saturday Lawyers did not have any lines on the road. It looks like they recently slurry coated the road. It' has some tar-and-chip patches as well. Just proceed...

    There are some issues with this route. Lawyers road just west of Twin Branches is a two lane road with little or no shoulder. I would avoid taking Rout665 (no shoulder, hills, lotsa cars) and instead...

    I've had a rear metal fender get sucked into the wheel before. It made a perfect accordion shape before it folded under the tire and jammed against the bottom of my very sturdy steel dutch rack. To...

    Hey, just some friendly info... If you purchased lawn seats and the concert is not sold out you can likely exchange them for seats under cover for the difference in ticket price. So in other words,...

    My mistake. My next question was going to be the retail price, so thanks for that. It should be noted (for those who aren't aware) that a special frame is required for the gearbox, vs. just bolting...

    Interesting. The Pinion gearboxes come in steel and magnesium, so this is probably the steel one. Either way they are fairly heavy, but I think an improvement over a rear-hub-mounted gearbox. The...

    I'm perfectly happy with my Tektro Cr720 (wide profile canti brakes). If the toe-in is correct and they still squeal it could be something on the rim or brake pad. Just use a green scrubby pad to...

    What about the rim and tire width? I have a short wheelbase cargo bike that has Big Ben (race guard?) 50mm and I've never had an issue. One of the rims on my bike is 19mm wide and the other is...

    When you use an Apple Watch with a paired phone, Strava should use the phone for GPS and the watch just for display. It seems like it your watch battery shouldn't get that depleted since the GPS ping...

    You can see if you can reduce triggering of the display on the watch. They now have little key-fob looking portable chargers for the watch. They have a built in battery. You'd need to stop and take...
  14. Vintage Schwinn World Tourist "Barn Find" $75 OBO

    OK, so it was my mother's bike and not really kept in a barn. But it does have less than 10 miles on it. I dusted it off, put on new tires and brake pads and it shifted fine without any adjustment!...

    Rutted icy messes for the most part out there this AM. Snow melt glare ice all over as well. I went down on my driveway. On foot. Good news is I was wearing my skate-style bike helmet! I still had...

    Sorry to hear about your crash! Well, I have experience with front rollerbrakes. They have a disconnect that allows the cable to disengage from the brake on the hub. This is so you can remove the...
