Honda Bicycle Simulator...
4 Replies

Sean W. replied to Rowbike Mike's discussion Best Place to Find a Good Used Bike?
"Regarding Working Bikes, I can say quite definitively that they have been increasing their quality standards over the past couple of years, especially so over the past year. Prices have inched up to reflect this, but pretty much every bike that…"

Sean W. replied to Patrick M's discussion Abandoned bikes in need of Rescue?
"Not to rain on your parade, but there's a process in the city to handle abandoned bikes. Call 311 to initially report it, and then City workers will come by and tag the bike with a weatherproof yellow tag to note that it's being considered…"

Sean W. replied to Michael Millican's discussion Best Bike Locks?
"If you have a nice enough cutting wheel and enough time, there isn't really a material that will withstand an angle grinder. A harder steel will resist longer, but even titanium is grindable (and flammable!). So really, you're simply…"

Sean W. replied to BalloonBiker's discussion Stop sign sting
"As a person who lives in front of a three-way stop, I can't count the times I've nearly been Schwinned when trying to cross the street. Many times blatant, more often inadvertent, but it seems most cyclists pay even less attention to…"

Sean W. replied to Tank-Ridin' Ryan's discussion Prepaid Cell Phones
"As a low-time user who didn't have a cell phone until last year, I went with the T-Mobile prepaid. They offer 1000 minutes for $100, and the minutes don't expire for a year. Texts cost essentially a minute on this plan. The phone was ~$25…"

Sean W. replied to M.A.R.K.'s discussion 26x1.62 tire needed.. Having truble finding one
"x1.5 and x1.75 are both very close to what you have, essentially +/- 1/8" (7%). Either should work with your 26x1.5" wheel. I doubt you'd have clearance issues, unless you have very tight fitting fenders. And if that's the case…"

Sean W. replied to Tank-Ridin' Ryan's discussion Self-Thinning of the Herd (Witnessing Dangerous/Stupid Behavior on the Road)
"Driver I passed NB on Damen last week while I was riding home, smoking in her left hand, cellphone conversation with her right hand, and shifting her manual transmission with her left hand as well. A virtuoso performance of distracted stupidity."

Sean W. replied to Rico's discussion Wheel Question
"You're looking for a rim strip or rim tape. You can get a rubber rim strip in the size of your wheel for probably a few bucks from an LBS (maybe less), and installation is simply stretching the rubber so it sits in the recess of the rim, and…"

Sean W. replied to Steve Bradford's discussion Used road bike for very tall person?
"We get tall bikes in at Working Bikes every now and again. There were a 62cm and a 63cm there that were pretty nice on Wed. when I last volunteered. Selection's always better when the doors open, so get there as early as you can, at least 15…"
