    I think they tell you that the wheels may be out of true just so you check for trueness out of the box. I've never had any problems with the wheels actually being out of true.

    Insufficient grease...

    No, it's noon somewhere only 24 times per day (ignoring time zone offset from GMT by half hours).:rolleyes:

    This looks like a marketing opportunity for Trek. Bring you bike into a dealer for an inspection. Get a $20 coupon. Maybe get a new quick release.
    Cost of the inspection and fix? The wholesale...

    The front quick release is on backwards.:rolleyes:
    This setup will certainly eliminate heal strike.:rolleyes:

    On my fixie, I have a quick release on my front wheel and no lawyer's lips on the front dropout. Am I gonna die?:rolleyes:

    Kids can't use CaBis.


    Know many people interested in riding living in single family homes without bicycles?

    Well, after having my wheel sucked over the TR bridge by a longtail bike with streamers on the handlebars, my ego couldn't take it.:rolleyes:

    Once again, people are expecting me to pay attention while riding.
  14. Do you really think that CaBi should maintain...

    Do you really think that CaBi should maintain stations every 5 blocks in a sea of single family homes?

    The residential density at Pershing and George Mason is much higher than anything in Bluemont.

    As far as I can tell, station location decision-making was started using a crowd-sourcing map, whose input was primarily from cyclists. As far as I know, the proposed station locations in my...

    I've gotten stuck in a marble-sized hailstorm on a tour without shelter. We stopped. It was painful, but no damage. Bigger hail is very rare, particularly out east.

    Well, I don't have a dog in this fight, but I'll bite. As far as I can tell, all Arlington CaBi stations have been located in commercial districts, places with high residential density, at schools,...

    Lightening and actual tornadoes are dangerous. Hail is merely uncomfortable and perhaps painful, but not dangerous per se. Helmets are useful in hail. Accumulation of hail can be dangerous, but...

    I thought they wanted to serve St. Ann's. Frederick and Harrison are equally good substitutes. I don't get the north/south connection argument. There aren't CaBi stations to the north or south. ...

    Why doesn't anyone propose moving the Harrison St. station to the cul-de-sac on Frederick on the Custis trail?

    The difficultly of driving between Westover and Shirlington clearly illustrates how little automobiles have been considered in the overall transportation system in Arlington.:rolleyes:

    Back in 1983 through 85, the 700 series bikes were the top of the Trek line followed closely by the 600 line. They all had double butted Reynolds 531C frames and forks. The X20s were touring bikes...

    Horizontally the rear derailleur moves to the smallest cog the limit screw allows. The arm springs back when not under chain tension, so the arm should be out of the way. (If you people used levers...

    I would think that the rear derailleur would not get in the way if is just left hanging there. If it is in the way, you can potentially mess with its limit screws to get it out of the way. I s'pose...
