    You should buy those! What were the budget options, out of curiosity?

    There's the rub. Marketers still need to emphasize the non-bike like aspects of these vehicles (battery, top speed, etc, ) to sell them, it's just product differentiation. Advocates have to downplay...

    My only encounter with Pete was at the finish of last year's Disaster Relief Trials. He was helping me, of course, holding my bike steady so I could lift a big water jug out of the front basket...

    Yup, it's the same. I just flipped the order of the spacer and "cone". All good. Now both the cone and locknut are outboard of the freewheel body, and accessible to a wrench.

    Working from home has drastically reduced my mileage, since most of my riding was on commutes while the kids were in school and daycare. The practical thing would've been to buy a used trainer, or to...

    1. Probably not.

    2. No, but maybe you could have the bike powder-coated gloss white or gloss black and use celeste replacement decals, cable housing, bar tape, etc., as accents. Those are pretty...

    This product looks really interesting and I'd give it a try if it were my frame. Apparently, this stuff doesn't run or spatter, which are the main issues with rattle-can paint jobs.

    Some trails seem less traveled. Here's the usually well-worn dirt path between Washington Blvd and the GW Parkway near Memorial Bridge.

    Clever idea, thanks. The tool could almost engage, a couple millimeters more is all that would be needed to get it seated.

    Thanks. If I'm being honest, taking off the Shimano freewheel was a want, not a need :)

    I did try taking the nuts off the fixed gear side but the axle didn't budge when I gave it a pretty good...

    SS freewheel removal, and a question

    I haven't posted in months so I thought I'd relate a simple mechanical chore that turned into a bigger one, and finish with a question for those patient enough to read this :)

    In 2005, I bought a...

    I think this issue is common to most bike trailers, which are designed for kids of varying sizes, ages 1-5.

    The usual advice is to roll up a bath or beach towel as a sort of lumbar roll, so that...

    Looks fine to me. You’re not going to be looking at your stem angle while riding, and neither will anybody else. As long as it makes you want to ride it more, and you don’t feel like you’ve...

    I get your point, but I think “proper position” is a relative term in this case, which seems to be about jrenaut finding a comfortable fit, not a performance one. The stem and bars are several inches...

    I think swapping the spacers from under the stem to over it wonÂ’t give you joy. It will lower your bars, and I think too-low bars is actually the main problem here, given how much lower your bars...

    I think this is good advice, a shorter stem that will let you get the bars higher and closer you. I think thatÂ’s what saddle and lever tilt youÂ’ve tried already are getting at. IÂ’m no fitter, but...

    I'm not sure which way you want to slide the levers. Down lower, so that they are easier to reach when your hands are in the drops? Or up higher toward the ramps, for riding on the hoods?
