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!

comment Why do cyclists shave their legs?
I imagine it's easier to clean the rocks and gravel out of the wound without leg hair in the way, matting up the wound.

comment Why is a proper road bike pedal preferred for road bikes?
When I went clipless, I actually bought these mountain bike pedals because I could ride clipped in or have nice bumps to stop my foot from slipping off the pedal if I was wearing my regular shoes.

comment How can I keep my feet from falling asleep while riding?
I do the same thing - when I'm riding on a river trail we have here, I try and kick the dandelions while I'm stretching - gives me something fun to do!

Check the angle of your clips as well - it could be your foot is turned in or out too much.

comment Why should I wear bicycle clothes made of spandex?
@Rebekah in theory, at least. My wife has a pair of suspenders she uses to stop her shorts from sliding down as she rides.

comment What type of tires can prevent goatheads?
@geo even though that isn't my own picture, my wife has come back from rides with tires that look like that (she has 26" cruiser tires). The really scary part are the thorns where the body breaks off - you have to pry the rest of the thorn out with the tip of a knife blade.

comment Slow leak on front cruiser tire
You can also run your hand along the inside of the tire (slowly!) and feel for a protrusion into the tube side. I had a tire that had an embedded thorn that took me 3 repairs to finally find!
