Yes, this is indeed a bike-related post.If ever there was a game that was made for playing while riding your bicycle this is it. While this game is a MMORPG online -it also takes place OUTSIDE.…Continue
"Because leaving it on the ground makes it really obvious to anyone that is nearby that you are stealing the bike, rather than just having "unlocked" it.
With even a cheesy tool, it doesn't take much longer to snip a "bike…"
"Could the guy who stole it have sold it for $20? Probably within a few minutes, to a passerby in some back alley.
Almost completely zero risk, a minute or two of "work," and then $20+ of free money?
You do the math.…"
"Like Paul said, this might be a problem that can be solved with human engineering and designing a proper lifting technique that works for you and your physical limitations.
Lifting a bicycle can be made significantly easier by using a technique…"
"While it would be an interesting project to repair, I have plenty of interesting projects in my backlog. My garage is full of bike junk that needs to be sorted, fixed/restored and sold off.
About the only new acquisitions I'm willing to make…"
"Every once in a while I will see a Step-through Raleigh Sports in this paint color pop up on Craigslist. Right now there is one Diamond-frame Sports with it, but if you kept and eye on the site every day I would daresay you could find one…"
"Matt, I think there is a second hole in the b-pivot assembly of the old Deerhead Deore derailleurs to account for weakening pivot springs. But even if not, it's not too difficult to bend-adjust the springs to tighten them up a little.…"
"I'm sorry but this bike sold 4 years ago. I think I sold it for around $250 but my memory isn't 100% these days on figures. I'd have to dig out my 2011 records to be sure. A year or so ago she brought it back to me for a…"
"Also, PLEASE don't include links to Craigslist ads unless you are going to also duplicate the information in your post. A month (or whatever) goes by and the ad is long gone, but the post still (obviously) has historical interest. Now it has…"
I would only disagree with the statement that bearings "always do" wear out, on a bicycle that is. Bicycles see very little stress on their bearings under normal operating conditions. Because of the extremely…"
I recently lost all my keys at Lolla this weekend and do not have a spare anymore. I was going through the posts and saw that you have an angle grinder. My bike is right by my car in the river east parking garage and was wondering if you could help me out. If you can message me so I can give you my number that would be amazing. Thanks.
While parking my 1967 RSW folder at the train station this morning, a non-biking contemporary struck up a conversation. Turns out he still has two 60's English Raleighs in his basement that "no one wants". He lives near the Metra Ravinia Station in Highland Park. If you get this message (not sure about Chainlink messaging) and are the least bit interested, I'll be happy to pass on your name and email address. Let me know.
