    Saddles are a very personal thing. What works for me (SMP Glider, SMP Lite 209) might not work for you. Perhaps find a bike shop that offers loaners that you can take home and try for a week or two....

    The Kona Jake is pretty good value for money in the cyclocross category. It would probably do everything you need for that kind of riding. The only possible drawback is that the top tubes on Kona...

    I'd rather chew off my right arm than ever live with my mother again. Unfortunately, my older brother has talked my sister into doing just that. From a financial standpoint it makes sense, as she's...

    If I had to guess, I'd say shorter crank arms to put the knee through a smaller range of motion. The longer crank arms that are so common now put a knee through a tighter bend at the top of the pedal...

    I do wish they'd stop calling this surgery "hysterectomy". This goes back to Victorian times when the womb was thought to be the source of female "hysteria".
    Would it be so hard to just call it a...

    From British Columbia through Alberta and perhaps the westernmost part of Saskatchewan, it's mostly prevailing from the west. Once you get into the middle of Saskatchewan, it can come either...

    There is another type of bicycle fashion police, what you might call "tweedies". These are people who violently object to lycra in any form, insist that cycling should only be done in regular...

    I've had SPDs and hated them. It seemed to me that the SPD cleat was such a tiny thing, aiming it into the pedal was difficult even with dozens and dozens of chances to practice every day. (They were...

    He has a cardiologist as well as a regular doctor, so I think he's getting good enough advice. His concerns came from reading the literature that came with the Coumadin.

    You can buy water repellent helmet covers for wet or cold weather, if that helps. So you buy the most ventilated helmet you can find for hot weather and then just put the cover on for fall and...

    I went through menopause at age 50. The first year I had a lot of hot flashes, so my doctor tried me on low dose HRT. Unfortunately, I had an adverse reaction just three days after starting, ending...

    Cycling and warfarin?

    My better half was well on his way to training for two MS Bike Tours this year. Out at least 4 days a week, riding more or less consistently, although he was feeling a bit tired in the evenings. Then...

    Some years ago I contacted Louis Garneau after replacing a helmet, to ask if I should just throw the old one away. I was surprised when they got back to me to say that the old L.G. helmet should be...

    It's what they'd probably call a sportive bike in Europe. Designed more for enthusiasts who just want to enjoy riding than for full-tilt racers, extremely comfortable on our rough potholed and...

    Regarding the upright position (high head tube), don't forget that you can always flip the stem so that it slopes down instead of up. That lowers the bars considerably.

    I still like mine, although I've swapped them around to different bikes. The touring bike now has the Glider, the road bike the Lite 209, and the wind trainer bike the Avant. I have no idea why I...

    She may have gotten her colouring from a Himalayan/Persian ancestor, as she has a little turned-up nose. She's playful and active enough to be part Siamese, though. We get her back today at 4:00. I...

    First they described her as "seal point" and didn't post a picture. She's actually a light...
