comment Bolt size for the Weerider Kangaroo
This thing is for holding a toddler. I doubt that they used any special steel for the fasteners. But if you are worried about it, go to an auto parts store. The bolts and nuts sold there tend to be more sturdy.

comment Should I restore my old mt-bike for winter commuting (and for wife to ride with me) or throw it away?
You didn't say what kind of brakes the bike used to have. But you should know that if you're replacing cantilever brakes with v-brakes, you need to replace the levers as well.

comment what make and model is this bike please?
I don't know the make, but the technical term for a bike like that is a "low-rider". More photos might help. And see if there's a serial number on the frame.

comment How should I transport Cannondale Bad Boy 5 INSIDE a BMW 4 Series Coupe?
@RoboKaren : No, this doesn't answer the OP's question. But the OP was asking the wrong question.

You can afford a $40,000 car, but can't afford a $200 bike carrier?

comment BB30 bottom bracket won't stop clicking
First: your BB has sealed bearings, so greasing it is pointless. Second: don't assume that it's the BB that's clicking. When you lean on the pedals, you're putting torque on almost every part of the bike. Any one of those parts could be making noise.

comment Safety of old brakes
If the brake pads are touching the tire, then it might be a good idea to replace the tire.

comment Any experience with shaft driven bikes?
Why do you think wear on the gears is such a problem? A car's drivetrain also uses gears and driveshafts, but it often lasts for 200,000 miles. Is it just because car designers can afford to make the mechanism heavier?

comment Brand new disk brakes are barely stopping the bike
Yes, I have the long-pull MTB version. Rotors: 160 rear, 180 front. I'm using the pads that came with the brakes.

comment exploding inner tubes
Why do you assume that the tire would take any pressure? There's a reason why they print the maximum pressure on the side. Get a pressure gauge and do it right, it's much cheaper than a new tire.

comment How can I fit this mudguard?
Are you sure that the threads are actually part of the fork? I've never seen a design like that. Maybe there's a recessed nut that's just stuck in the fork?
