  • Posted in thread: Who has used a tire "boot"? on 06-17-2017 at 06:15 PM
    Who has used a tire boot to cover a rip in the sidewall or other area? I've carried one for
    years "just in case" and a few days ago I finally had the need to use it for a friend on a ride
    who rode ove...

    I just want to thank everyone for their input, still have the packing grease on it. Been riding
    it around the neighborhood on and off when I get the chance (don't have the brakes hooked up
    yet) and it...

    Wives and kids don't come with manuals, do they? I found the manual on a Nike box. It said,

    I have a NiteRider handlebar mounted light. Love it. Since the day I bought it the one thing
    that has just killed me has been how difficult it is to mount. As you push up the rubber strap
    to get it th...

    I would add that by the time you can do 60mi reasonably comfortably (with the exception of a
    sore butt) you'll be able to do 100 when you take care to 1) remain hydrated 2) keep snacking
    carbs 3) keep...

    I think Joe Friel is the author of a book on cycling for those over 50. It would be worth
    looking at. I would reiterate the need for recovery time. Muscles develop in response to
    stress. You almost li...

    When you look at the chart, all it is doing is telling you, in millimeters, the average
    circumference of a typical "29er" or 25c tire or 26" tire or whatever. The proper way to get an
    accurate reading...

    I think a lot of people forget how much trouble they had. My sister fell over a couple of times
    and had a heck of a time finding the right spot to get clipped in. When you first begin it may
