    Well, hipsters like me can't afford those fancy cycling shoes.:rolleyes:

    I ride with miniclips.

    Also, platform pedals are good for winter boots.

    You are only going to die riding fixed without being clipped in if you don't have any brakes. If your feet are off the pedals, you don't have any control over speed going downhill, unless, of...

    You're mixing us up. The trick Jan showed me involved a short piece of chain, a rag, and a vise.

    Well, you could always use an old bottom bracket cup tool. You have one of those, don't you?

    Of course, I use a flashlight tied to my helmet with a piece of inner tube. I wish to be even more dorky then wannabe Fred-dorks with their fancy, overpriced helmet mounts.

    You'll need to get the lock ring off, perhaps with a hammer and screwdriver or a special tool. Getting the cog off requires a chain whip or sometimes backpedaling hard with the rear wheel in place. ...

    Sorry, I was BSing you. Tire pressure potentially matters a trivial amount, but there is no reason to run different tire pressures. The real answer is that 46/16 is 0.29% higher than 43/15 because...

    No. Governments, as they exist, make legal definitions that are not apparent and often irrelevant to social problems. This maximizes discretion and, therefore, power by government...

    44x16, but my quad size would suggest that 53x11 would be more appropriate.:rolleyes:

    I recall 1975. It was the beginning of a bike boom. There was very little bike infrastructure. Yet, I don't remember that it sucked. I think the level of suckyness has more to do with the amount...

    I don't think that nut uses a screwdriver. It should be just like a quick release wheel. ...Unless it is a seatpost bolt on a road bike that requires a hex key.

    The real way to go is turn 62 and buy a Golden Eagle pass for $10, which gives free admission to all national parks until you croak. After all, old people vote.

    You can skip the tolls by taking the "Carriage Road" on the VA side. On the MD side, there's obviously the towpath and Burma Road.

    You may not want to do that if you end up using the old axle. Spreading a steel fork 5mm shouldn't be an issue.

    You may soon find yourself with a rude surprise. When obtaining a bolt-on wheelset for my conversion, I found that the front axle was too wide to fit in the designated slot on the fork. What to do?...

    Why bother with a new headset? I would think if the old one worked, just leave it alone (after repacking).

    They have quill stems with modern handlebar attachments. That may make more sense than...

    I half-heartedly attempted a mid five with FFG this morning and failed. As of now, I have yet to successfully execute a high, mid, low five with a forum member without crashing.
