    There has been an on going saga/drama I have had to deal with regarding the seat frame on my Vison R40. I have had the bike since 2001. In that time frame 5 of 8 welds in the seat frame have broken and been repaired. Advanced Transportation, the company who used to build Vision recumbents went...

    I'm having a new rear wheel built for my tandem and although it's only a 7 speed I've opted to get a new hub with a 9 speed freehub body [to allow future upgrades]. I know I'll need a spacer to make a 7 speed cassette work but do I also need a 'dork disc' to prevent spoke carnage if my cheapo...

    I have been leaning my bike up against a wall in the spare bedroom or if the tires are nasty from mud and such against my wife's industrial sewing machine in the entryway. Well the cat decided to use it as a means to help him stretch. I was nearby and as he climbed up the back tire it moved and...

    It's not that I think a single speed bike needs to have any utility beyond being fun to ride but sometimes you just want to multitask. For many hip young urban singlespeeders (...or so I hear; I'm neither hip, nor young, nor urban) improved efficiency in beer consumption is a secondary goal of...

    I have a couple of bike frames sitting here at the house and I was wondering if anybody had tried to extend a frame into a tandem by merging two or more frames together? I think it's either build a tandem or a tall bike. I think the tall bike would be easy, I just won't have a use for it not...

    Where do you get your gears from / do you make your parts to fit the gear system or your gears to fit your own system?

    I have an old vintage steelie Schwinn Varisty. All components are pretty much shot so I stripped it down and want to make it into a fixed gear. I assume all I have to do is replace the hub and that's it? If so how do I know which hubset to buy?
