    So exciting! I am jealous. It seems like you could buy the cooler weather gear as you ride north. You may even be able to order it on line and have it shipped to the UPS or post office in towns...

    As for lost rings, mine is too big because I have lost more than 30 lbs since getting married, so I just moved it to my middle finger. It fits perfectly. My husband was a...

    I wish I had eloped to save the hassle and expense, but it does seem like the type of thing that requires more than a lunch break. There should be a little effort and time more put into it than a...

    Thanks for the tip about renting a case. I hadn't thought of that. I am concerned about torque when putting it back together, and figured I would have to pack a torque wrench.

    If your bike computer can transmit to the rear wheel, you should be able to easily do that without going to the LBS. If you are in the market for a rear-wheel sensor system, I recommend the Cateye. ...

    I have one of the Lezynes with a screw-on chuck so it doesn't bend the valve stem. It is nice because I can get my tires up to 110 psi with out a ton of upperbody strength. The only problem is that...

    Gel saddles are known for the gel shifting and rubbing in new places. Does your LBS have a test ride policy? Also, check to make sure the nose of your saddle hasn't nudged upward. Only a couple...

    I don't think mine are as wide as Oakleaf's, but I would say your feet are wide if you have a hard time finding shoes that fit in a typical store.
