    Since you're already helping me pull and re-lube the bottom bracket, maybe I just need to come to your house with some beer.

    I am not getting a hammer anywhere near my bike.

    I might try to get to the bike repair session at Annie's Ace Hardware rather than buying some more tools I won't use very often.

    I thought you might be. I'm good with whole numbers in this case as I can't imagine ever noticing a difference of .29%.

    So I think this all means I want to try to go down to a 16 in back. There's...

    If the gear inches are the same, that means the speed at a given cadence is the same? Is that correct? So, for example, 46/16 and 43/15 are both about 77 gear inches, so they're equivalent gearings?

    In DC, this default is already 25mph, which as you may have noticed doesn't mean much. I'd like to see the maximum speed on any road in DC (with the possible exception of 395 and 295) set to 25mph.

    Fixed gear ratios

    My bike, I believe, is 46/18. I'm thinking I might need something a little different. I'm getting used to a higher cadence, but I'm still very slow at a cadence that is borderline uncomfortable. I...

    I don't object in theory to bikes and peds being charged for using infrastructure like that, but it had better be proportional to the wear they cause. A ton of metal doing 60mph is going to be a lot...

    In my experience, if you can refer to something as a "thingy", it's probably not a vital part of your bike.

    True, I probably could have gone to the hardware store for this particular item. But when I bent a rim on a pothole on 14th St, I was sure glad it happened three blocks from the Bike Rack.
