    I recall 1975. It was the beginning of a bike boom. There was very little bike infrastructure. Yet, I don't remember that it sucked. I think the level of suckyness has more to do with the amount...

    I don't think that nut uses a screwdriver. It should be just like a quick release wheel. ...Unless it is a seatpost bolt on a road bike that requires a hex key.

    The real way to go is turn 62 and buy a Golden Eagle pass for $10, which gives free admission to all national parks until you croak. After all, old people vote.

    You can skip the tolls by taking the "Carriage Road" on the VA side. On the MD side, there's obviously the towpath and Burma Road.

    You may not want to do that if you end up using the old axle. Spreading a steel fork 5mm shouldn't be an issue.

    Does segregated infrastructure really tell drivers that bikes belong or rather that bikes don't belong in regular traffic lanes?

    Sounds like SF just wants to stick it to the tourists. I can't think of a similar short toll bridge that has sidewalks.

    You may soon find yourself with a rude surprise. When obtaining a bolt-on wheelset for my conversion, I found that the front axle was too wide to fit in the designated slot on the fork. What to do?...

    I think you mean Four Mile Run east of Columbia Pike. An older couple were riding westbound on FMR and some doofus lost control of his truck making a high speed right from Columbia Pike to FMR. He...

    Why bother with a new headset? I would think if the old one worked, just leave it alone (after repacking).

    They have quill stems with modern handlebar attachments. That may make more sense than...

    I half-heartedly attempted a mid five with FFG this morning and failed. As of now, I have yet to successfully execute a high, mid, low five with a forum member without crashing.

    Perhaps it is not lumens, but instead the need to pay a significant fraction of the price of a bike for a simple headlight.

    You might have to redish the wheel if the cog is on the opposite side of the freewheel (if I understand you correctly). For my conversion, it was easiest to just find a used wheelset on...

    FG/SS being faster up short hills is mainly psychological--you realize that you don't have the option of downshifting and so you just "man up" in an effort to maintain cadence.

    What's a chain guard? Is that some overpriced doohickey the bicycle industry is forcing on us, sorta like brifters?

    I've noticed on the Nashbar bike that I bought that they may be stingy on the original grease in the hubs. There is nothing you can do if the races are bad from running without grease.

    If it's a steel frame, it don't matter. If you had a 6 or 7 speed freewheel, it's 126. If 5 speed, it's 120.

    If your bottom bracket spins OK, don't do anything and slap on a new crank if you are...
