  • I did this once. Notice how I took the wheels and fabric off the rear end, else at high speeds I am not sure what bad things might happen. https://flic.kr/p/rMCYos That's a Saris Bones rack.

  • And when you reinsert those aluminum legs into the steel tubes, be sure to put a mess of grease in there to help prevent galvanic corrosion.

  • Or figure that it only happens in your lowest gear and the wheel’s not moving that fast then anyhow, so what the heck. (Which was my solution to this problem in the pre-IGH days).

Close to zero information about accessories—if you can find them at all. I don’t know what they are thinking. I see that too, but I understand why they are doing it, and it is not because they hate us, it is because...

With just one Wideloader, it's a tight squeeze through most doors. The U-Tubes are considerably narrower and shouldn't be a problem as long as you can fit your handlebars through the door when straight. A Big Dummy 1.0 is 32 inches wide with the...

  • Another lock option besides Pitlock (which I use) is "Atomic 22". http://atomic22.com English, and expensive, but it looks like it addresses many problems with bicycle meddling -- you can do wheels, stem, saddle, cranks, pedals, etc. Comes to some $$$, however. Given that you're in New Orleans, couldn't you just bribe a cop to shoot anyone messing with your bike? David
