    I've been meaning to thank you all for the advice - but I've been so busy walking! I got a new pair of Asics Gel Nimbus 17 (my ancient shoes were an old version of this model, and I'd always been...

    I cycle in the same 11 year old tennis shoes as I walk (eek!)

    I didn't know local running stores were a thing! I'll have to google and see if we have anything near me. I know there are a couple...

    Talk to me about shoes

    I've recently gotten into walking (not running), but I've been doing decent distances, 4-6 miles most days, and yesterday I did 11.5 miles. I usually walk on a paved trail. It's clear my...

    Just for posterity's sake, in case anybody else with a tiny head wants to know - the Nutcase Little Nutty fits PERFECTLY. I had to dial it down just a little, but not the whole way.

    I'm not looking to wear them and then return them, just try them on. Preferably without spending a ton on shipping to me, and back, if they don't fit right. I can usually tell from looking if a...

    I know this is an old thread, but I'm gonna ask anyway - have you since found anything else that works? I think we must be sit-bone-twins, I'm the same measurement and the Selle SMP TRK is the only...

    I've recently discovered that I'm allergic to beeswax, which most "natural" lip balms use. Some Chapstick varieties include it, but the Classics (cherry, strawberry, and I think plain), don't. It...

    I am going to order a Nutcase "little Nutty", their childrens' helmet. It looks like it should work, and it has a dial. A lot of kid's helmets in the stores don't, and they don't come close to...

    Trying shorts

    Where do you try on different brands and styles of shorts/bibs? My LBS has a limited selection - they carry a lot of Pearl Izumi styles, a couple Bontrager styles, and that's about it. Another bike...

    I went on a helmet-trying-on rampage across town today. I found ONE helmet that fit well - a blue digital camo boy's helmet at Toys R Us :( It was for ages 8+, and it fit well with the dial turned...

    Cute helmets for pinheads?

    I have a relatively small head - 20" / 51cm. Most size small bike helmets for women start at 21 or 21.5" / 52 cm. I'm loath to buy one on the internet without trying it on, but I'd really like to...

    I'm sure that's what they were counting on (and I'm not saying that in a cynical way!) When someone has a really outstanding (or terribly bad) customer service encounter, they tell people. One bike...

    So a few days ago two things happened - my knee pain went away, and the temps went above freezing, and I walked around our block for the first time since surgery, on one crutch. Wow, sore back and...

    So, update. I'd been walking pretty well, using just one crutch around the house most of the time, but taking both out in public, especially because we've had snow and ice. Last Saturday I got a...

    Aww they don't have my size. I'm a 28B, which you can't find hardly anywhere. Most of my "store bought" bras are 32A just because that's the smallest you can find, but the band still gapes around...
