Or in other words, not very often and not very well. At least after I find the wire or bit of glass.

I can't tell you how many times I've had a flat and found glass bits stuck in the visible tire...

Agreed.

Material flaw might cause one spoke to break. After the third failure (and an accelerated rate), you've probably got a cheap machine-built wheel with undertensioned spokes. The spokes...

Road shoulders seem to be present mostly on larger roads (U.S. highways, for instance) or urban areas.

It doesn't mean smaller roads are un-rideable. To the contrary, I'd rather take a small...

If you're riding studs, I'd guess you're dealing with ice or snow. Would you prefer to rename your bike "Wolly Mammoth" or "Mastodon" under such conditions? Maybe "Moose?"

Bought a pair, liked it, bought another pair, liked it too, bought a couple more pairs, thought it had barbed wire embedded in the sides of the chamois. If they're good this year, buy extras!

I got a hitch rack when my wife got her Prius and couldn't strap a rack on the hatch, then got a hitch when I got a new car. I've carried bikes 1,000 miles each way for at least three trips, and 500...

If you think a bike shop is too expensive, don't support it. But if that's the case, don't whine when something goes wrong that you don't know how to fix, or can't figure out how to fix, and have to...
