Found on Road

I find several bungee cords each year. The best
tool I found was a 1” Craftsman combo wrench

I found an iPad once, badly damaged. I brought it home and...

Attitude Change

I never raced but always tracked my speed and
rode 50+ miles a lot. Having the latest technology
was important too . Now at 75 I am happy to just
be able to ride a conventional road bike. I check...

E Bikes

I see a lot of teens zooming around the paved trails in our local parks. They are clipping along pretty good. We had to pedal when we were kids. I am SO jealous. Bill

Chamois Cream

I use chamois cream with modern shorts. I apply to my skin areas that are friction points, and to the liner itself
although they are synthetic these days. I haven’t tried riding without the cream,...

Jury Rigged

Thanks for sending me to the dictionary for “Jury Rigged”. Jury Rigged is the oldest of the terms. I had never
heard of “Jerry Rigged” before. Being from the Chicago area, “Jury Rigged” just seemed...

Chain Stay Bridge

Of course you are right about being passionate regarding areas of interest. If an item you collect has a flaw, then that is all you see. Other people wouldn’t notice it. My neighbor thinks I’m nuts...

Chain Stay Bridge

OK, I just checked and both my 1974 Mercian and 2004 Waterford have a chain stay bridge. You must be awfully sensitive to let that extra weight bother you..

Super Course Rebuild

Well, maybe I need to go to confession. About 20 years ago I rebuilt an early 70’s Carlton Super Course

Mercian Pro 1974

This is a 1974 Mercian Pro that I rebuilt with Campy components earlier this summer. I bought the bike in 1975 and originally
built it up with DuraAce components. In the 90’s it sported a Campy...

It’s the little things that make retirement enjoyable. Like if it’s really windy on the weekend, just wait and ride
during the week. Or in winter you don’t have to get up early and shovel the drive...

Gita next 1973

Since you don’t have any experience with bikes, I suggest one of the older how-to books that cover bikes
and components from that era. “The New Complete Book of Cycling” by Eugene Sloan covers many...

Bike INsurance

I wondered a few years ago about my liability if I caused an automobile accident while riding my bike. It could
happen, or a driver could claim you caused an accident even if you didn’t. I decided...

Wrapping Bars

Wrapping bars is one of my least favorite chores. Your wrap is OK but looks a little loose on the drops. When you do rewrap the bar, use the old tape and practice on another bar if you have one...
