I'm an experienced bike commuter and touring cyclist. I have passions for folding bikes, drawing and painting, and playing my guitars. I'm often seen hauling groceries with or taking photos from my bike. I'm also a musician, and my band also has released a couple of albums.

comment How much distance can I put on drivetrain components?
As commented above, it's impossible to answer this without knowing how hard you ride the bike and how well it's maintained. Whether you replace your chain regularly is of particular interest.

comment Wald basket legs too short for cruiser — how can I install the basket?
Also, the fork diameter on this bike is too big for P-clamps, and a search of multiple store and online has yielded nothing I can use.

I spoke to a guy in customer service at Wald, he's getting me parts to extend the legs. He promised, Real Soon Now. :)

Changed the title to be more of a question, hoping for responses.

comment Terminology index - a list of bike part names and cycling concepts
I softened the language a bit. I agree with you about BSOs, but the situation isn't quite that clear -- and people do occasionally tour on them. (I'll try to dig up a link for that last.)

The point about mounting rear shocks seems only distantly related, it could probably be its own question. You'll probably get more answers with a more focused question!

to clarify, if you could remove the reference to Toronto from the title, we'll re-open. It's been suggested I may have closed this too quickly, please don't let that discourage you. :)

Thanks for posting, but localized questions aren't what we do. If you're concerned with buying a bike on the net, please reword and we'll reopen this.

comment How do I make sure my bike's the proper size?
+1. I'd like to add that your feet should not be flat on the ground on a road bike. However, if you're feeling unsteady when mounting the bike, you could lower the seat for a while and work your way up to proper height.
