    Well, they are technically moving bikes in and out of the lane. Given how irate drivers would be if they took up a car lane, I give CaBi a pass on this, esp in an area as tough as Thomas Circle.

    Humpf. My bike is pampered. I keep it in my apartment and at work it is out of the weather cause I park it under a huge overhang or in the garage. It never sees mud and very rarely rain. I do...

    I learned a lot from this post. So, next year when I bring my bike in for a tune-up I should ask for the hubs to be greased and repacked? I wasn't aware that not doing this could ruin the hubs. ...

    Well, I took the bike out for an hour today and didn't hear the death rattle. Yah! The LBS replaced two donut shaped thingees (that's a technical term) containing ball bearings in the front hub. I...

    Given that they have probably the best spot to offer a pit stop, the signs without an actual offering is mystifying.

    Anyway, last summer they were offering happy hour specials and a calypso band...

    Dropped it off at the LBS tonight with the mechanic who saw me a couple of nights ago. He thinks it is probably a problem with the hub bearing. I checked the back wheel for anything loose floating...

    We really need to see a YouTube video of this in action! Actually, using it when it is completely dark out along the MVT would probably be a good idea given all of the nasty black flies and...

    All these replies sound ominous. I have the old rear wheel; I'll bring it with me and see what they think about me trying it out for a trial run. I don't have any fancy tools aside from a set of...

    The wheels are handbuilt by Bill Mould (Spokes) and only about a year old. I don't think the sounds are coming from the wheels. These are much more of a loud, metallic sound. It's hard to tell,...
  16. Cracking sound after tune-up! Please help! Am I gonna die??

    I got my bike tuned-up in mid-March (new cassette, chain, rings, and rear derailleur cable). I didn't start riding it again till the very end of April. I did put oil in the chain before riding...
