I ride for fitness, enjoyment and an easier, less stressful commute.

On weekends I ride a custom (by Kennedy's Cycle Fit) road bike with Campag gear.

To commute I ride an SE Lager fixed (love the fixie!)

With the family I ride a Shogun hybrid.

I love to tinker with my bikes and won't go to a mechanic unless it's for something advanced or unfamiliar.

comment Are there sirens/horns that are like a car horn?
I was chatting to a guy with the hornit. He loves it and it was the loudest bike horn I've heard.

comment How long do Garmin's cycling GPS devices take to get an initial GPS lock?
That's interesting. I updated your post with a citation on the 510 using GLONASS.

@Kibbee It depends where you are. At my house it's almost instant. At work though in the city it can take up to 10 minutes.

comment Mini Pumps For Roadbike (120 psi)?
+1 for both co2 and a pump. CO2 on it's own is no good because if you get a few flats you're out of luck. But CO2 is really the only way I've found to get up to full pressure while on the road.

comment Can I put standard drop brakes on a MASI drop handlebar?
@Batman my motivation is that I have a set of these handlebars for free! Wanting to minimize my costs.

comment How can I get rid of I.T. Band pain caused by cycling?
@BenediktBauer Agreed. However, it's a low impact surgery and it's solved all my problems, so I think it's worth mentioning.

comment How can I prolong the life of my bottom bracket bearings?
@DanielRHicks Yep, I'm getting a bit sceptical. Might need to invest in some bearings myself and start doing my own inspection and replacement.
