    polite and nice.You need to leave your house more often.

  • Posted in thread: How hot is it.... on 08-22-2016 at 01:23 PM
    It almost got up to 65 today, which is good. We try not to ride when it gets over 75 and my
    wife pretty much refuses to ride when it's over 80F. When it's that hot we'll wait till 10 or
    11PM to ride. ...

    set the tension low. I did. Having done that I have never increased the tension. It remains at
    the lowest...

    At about 110mi of a 132mi ride after a lot of climbing over the last 50mi I was wiped and out
    of water. I stopped at a turnout and set my bike against a big boulder and lied down on the
    tarmac complet...

  • Posted in thread: QBP Choosing Big Box over LBS on 07-03-2016 at 01:54 AM
    why can't an LBS sell as cheaply as REI? Most REI products sell at full retail. While there are
    sales here and there and there's a yearly rebate, my LBS also has a rebate program for regular
    buyers. F...

    It's understandable to react with anger if you loathe guns or with a smile if you're a gun guy
    but in truth the most important observation here is somewhere along the lines of "I don't know
    why he mig...

    Personally I'm not a fan of racks that put tires into trays. I'm sure there are good reasons
    for them but I find Yakima racks that hang the bikes easier and more versatile. You can hang
    the bikes this...
