    You people are seriously not helping in my long, slow process of considering switching to tubeless. Or maybe you are, and I'll stick with tubes.

    Depends on the car, I think. With my Hondas, the gear ratio was great for that--far better than first, and in snow, I'd even start from a dead stop in second. But with my Subaru, unless I'm going...

    It's just going through the entrance station what does it. They don't ding cyclists who ride in via other routes. If you're a ped, you'd likely use one of the trails and avoid the entrance station....

    This is the first time I've put on a Shimano chain. All previous ones have been Sram. One other thing I noticed is that I was able to use the old cassette (also 4500 miles) even though the chain had...

    This bike came with a full Ultegra (11-speed) group set, so that's what I decided to replace it with. Since I got 4500 miles on it compared to at most 3000 on other bikes with Sram, I thought I'd go...

    If youtube hadn't shown me, I was going to the Shimano site next. It's possible this particular box was just missing the full instructions. There was just a little sheet in this one that was mostly...

    Ultegra chain pin

    Some will scoff at my ignorance, but perhaps this will help some others. I replaced my first Ultegra chain over the weekend (4500 miles!). Instead of having a quick link like I'm used to, it came...

    Because of going there often enough for kayaking, and trips to SNP, I get the $80 yearly pass, which is worth it if you go often enough and can afford it. Otherwise, yeah, if money is tight, just...

    Wet and windy, which is fine, but I was a little cranky because so many people have the day off. Didn't see a cyclist, runner, or pedestrian until Key Bridge, and there were no wet tire tracks under...

    Truly? Seems like it would mean less sleep. Is it because the blood moves better to the bruised areas when aided by gravity?

    I think there are two sides to the safely issue when more "normal people" ride bikes. Sure, more cyclists means drivers are used to seeing them on the road and look out for them more, but more...

    They do a bit of speed enforcement on the CCT; they could do it on the MVT. I'm not advocating this, but it could be done. Personally, if I had to remain under 15 mph no matter what the trail/traffic...
