    There's Old Ox, Crooked Run and Beltway Brewing all in the Sterling area. Green Lizard has local beers, too. Probably not a good reason to go down to Lost Rhino.

    I asked a bike shop to dip-lube by Shimano inter-3 hub (with coaster brake). They reassembled it wrong and ruined it, then blamed me for asking them to work on it. They ordered new internals and put...

    Chain Reaction Cycles (UK) is having a tire sale. Good prices on Schwalbe tires. The last time I tried to post a UK link I was locked out of the forum for a few days, so you'll just need to google...

    I was just in Paris and nearly every bike had three locks. 1-2 U locks and a chain lock (or a frame lock, chain and heavy u lock). Even the little old ladies on Dutch bikes had three locks.

    Why not just get a shimano dyno wheel? You probably won't notice the difference. I got my front wheel from Taylor Wheels in Germany for about $175 for a double-walled sturdy rim. I got the lights...

    Hmmm, I would expect to see these two things on the bike: 1) Ring lock (aka O lock) for the rear wheel, or at least threaded bosses for it, and 2) a wheel dynamo. Maybe that rear cage is for some...

    I'll always put in a word for Handsome Devil. It's a mix between touring and cyclocross, fits 35c tires with fenders or 45 without, canti brakes. GRAND RANDONNEUR from Soma is similar, but uses 650B...
