I've been riding and fixing bikes with varying levels of success since I was knee high to a grasshopper.

These days most of my cycling is urban commuting and road riding, but I do manage to take my duallie out for a blat around the trails every once in a while.

comment What should I look for in a good pair of cycling shorts?
In Australia, Netti and their other brands (Cinetica, etc) are reasonably good value for money. I've also found the nike cycling wear to be quite good quality. But there are plenty of good brands out there.

comment How do you adjust the set-up of road bike brakes for women with small hands
My girlfriend had her bike serviced today and got the little spacers fitted. Apparently it has made the world of difference and she now feels much more in control on the brakes.

comment Good books on mountain biking
Different people learn in different ways. Some people can learn from reading a book and then practicing, whereas others learn best from visual demonstrations, or other methods. An important part of instructing people is picking up on the different learning styles of your students.

I have them, and I don't like them, which is why I'm keen to look at chain guards. But thanks for the answer

comment Switching Parts to a New Frame
Thanks. My commuter is descended from a mountain bike that I destroyed the frame on and ended up buying a second hand frame to rebuild it on.

comment Best cargo storage on a commuter bike
I don't think the title on the other question is as good as the title for this question. I agree that it covers similar grounds, but this question would be easier to find.
