    There was a path, or at least a way through the vines, from the foot of Union along the river, south of the old Ford plant. I rode through there frequently starting in the late 80s. The path emptied...

    Used to ride the parkway south of Belle View on weekend mornings in the early 90s, until a couple of detective-looking guys in an unmarked LTD rolled up next to me, rolled down the window, and...

    I had a similar noisy experience with new pads and rotors on used BB7s this weekend. I didn't touch the rotor faces while installing, but I didn't degrease them either. Probably should have. Will try...

    Platform 9 3/4. Just point it right between the begin and end signs and you'll pop out at the base of the Washington Monument.

    I can't remember the last time new pavement was applied, unless it related to other infrastructure projects. I guess I should just still be happy the trail was striped in 1990, and frames fit wider...

    The boundary line follows the old stream path, before the 1970s Four Mile Run channelization project.

    Triple cranks

    I am looking for a couple of MTB triple cranksets, one hollowtech II, the other square taper. Or maybe two of one or the other. Got any?

    What's their margin on 68 bucks? Not enough to risk alienating a customer. Trust your mechanic.

    It doesn't strike me as an agressive upsell to suggest you replace a finicky disc caliper with a new, different one. Sounds like you were getting decent advice at a fair retail price. You could do...

    I stole these ideas and bought these things after reading this, and love them. The snaps keep the mitts in place, but still allow the mitts to rotate. Thanks for the tips.

    Maybe they were having a discussion regarding right of way at the crosswalk/stop sign, and the resulting cognitive dissonance required extra backup.

    I saw lots of stupid passes around 530 too. It is the season. Lots of fair weather types. Bell ringing does not alter time and space, and I saw several attempts.

    I will adopt and care for any shimano hubs with used up rims. 10000 miles on a wtb rim sounds like pretty good luck. Angular contact bearings forever.
