    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.

    Sorry to see you go, but it does push the number of Steves on the board down towards a more reasonable number.

    All last week there were signs up near Gallery Place saying that 7th St NW would be closed at F this week. So, even though 6th is a miserable excuse for a road, I took it this morning after dropping...

    I was very happy to have a good LBS yesterday when I was adjusting the seat on the Xtracycle and the bolt snapped in half. If they hadn't been open and had a replacement, I might have had to DRIVE...

    Don't know about trails, but the Shaw area of DC is a parking lot. No obvious cause. I guess it's just Friday.

    I always figured there must be some efficiency gains for FG/SS. There's necessarily slack in the chain for a geared bike, and basic physics suggests that would introduce inefficiency. But I haven't...

    Sure, the ones they make specifically for bikes are expensive. Just go to the hardware store and grab one they made for a circular saw. Almost as good, but much cheaper.

    Meh. I agree that it's tough to win with logic when you're up against riled up idiots. It's funny he wants you to avoid clickbait and then uses a misleading and arguably clickbait title himself.
