comment How do I keep my seat from tilting back?
I wonder if you're riding too far back on the seat (ie, the seat might need to be moved straight back), and when you're hitting the bumpy area, you might have just enough leverage to tilt the seat up. Also, pictures are worth a 1000 words :)

comment How to make my wife's bike lighter? Is it worth the cost?
My wife started with a Raleigh cruiser, which she could barely lift over her head to hang it on the wall. We bought her a Specialized Dolce Sport, and she can practically throw it in the air it's so much lighter. We were both amazed at how much easier is it to move, and she has a lot easier time riding (less weight = faster, and way more endurance). It was well worth the expense.

comment Basic toolkit for bicycle maintenance
I was told to always carry a chain breaker with you - even if you don't know how to use it, someone who comes along and stops to help you might. It makes for a long walk when you can't do anything to repair a broken chain.

comment Rear wheel slipping out under load
I heard the same thing from several bike shops - the lever should leave a nice imprint in your palm once you force it shut.

comment Why should I wear bicycle clothes made of spandex?
@Johan - clarified: I thought the shorts looked weird. My coworkers still make fun of me when I come in wearing my shorts, but they don't have much to say when I point out that my butt isn't sore after riding in because of them!
