comment Trying to fit a Blackburn EX1 rack to my bike
I did a little looking around, and I believe the seat and rack are bought as a unit. The seat clicks into the rack somehow, and the questioner is having problems mounting the rack on a bicycle that only has eyelets near the hub not near the brakes.

@NeilFein: I think it this case p-clamps should be fine, since they're for the upper attachment, not the bottom. Worst case if the p-clamps loosen the seat will have a small amount of room to angle forward and back.

To be clear, how does the seat attach? Does the seat attach entirely to the rack and you're trying to find a solution for properly bolting the rack to the bike so that the child is held securely in the seat?

comment Why am I slow on flat surfaces?
Note when doing intervals that the lactate threshold will typically feel like a burning sensation (due to some of the related metabolic processes as your muscles work anaerobically.) So increase speed until it burns, keep a slight burn for a minute or two, then slow down for a few minutes.

comment Can I ride faster with a bike jersey?
@Angelo: Since air resistance increases as a square, that means that at a typical commuter pace of 11mph you could expect maybe 1 or 2 seconds shaved off of the same 22 mile distance.

comment Where can I find a bulb for my vintage 70's generator light?
You really need to give us more to work with. I suggest multiple pictures. The light; any identifying features of the light; the spot the bulb fits into; and the bulb, especially the bit of the bulb that fits into the light.

comment Frame sizing: “medium” vs. inches vs. centimeters
@mark: The XS/S/M/L/XL type measurements on the charts linked in the question seem about right, with the huge caveats that it varies with manufacturer and type of bike, and that it's a single measurement when there's several on the bike that matter.
