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 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.

comment How can I prolong the life of my bottom bracket bearings?
I've generally had the bearings replaced at the shop, so I'm not sure whether they're rusted. I figure they're replacing seals properly. I might drill drain hole, even though I store it under cover.

Hey, nice citation! I'm going to edit your answer to add an interesting tidbit about ephemiris data.
