    I prefer the right-hand point, but this is why I tend to use the traditional left-arm up. Unless cars are directly behind you, there's a chance they may not be able to see your outstretched right...

    This is a nightmare scenario for me, as I have four bikes all attached to the same mount. I didn't buy bike-specific hooks though. I drilled holes in a 2x4 and attached U-bolts, then ran a rod...

    I use spray lube when I'm in a rush, but I'm not particularly nitpicky or give-a-shit when it comes to chain maintenance. BTW, getting your head smacked by the pedal is preferable to nearly losing...

    I vote for 26th St. But only if they set it up like a tube float ride, with pools in the flat parts so you leisurely float from slide to slide.

    They have decent sales every once in a while, but they carry very little that I'd need, mostly at prices I'm not willing to pay...mainly just parts/components. They're basically the Freshbikes of...

    3/32 are wussy chains, man...I want a chain that could pull a tractor out of the mud if need be!

    Why do you want to switch it back and forth? If you just want an all-weather fixed bike with racks, it'd almost be cheaper and certainly easier to pick up an N+1 from BD or Nashbar.

    I have six bikes, all of which I use for commuting, and two of which are primarily "utility" bikes (one for pulling a trailer, one is my fendered all-weather bike). I own one rack, and it has been...

    Do you have horizontal dropouts? They tend to shift a bit and can need re-tensioning every so often. Your chain will "stretch" over time, but probably not enough to be noticeable after a couple...

    I wouldn't want to cruise around at 115 for hours, but it's not particularly high for me. The fastest I've gone on fixed is 41mph, so that's 180rpm on 48x17. Tiring, but not particularly bouncy....
