@tdc "How did they go so blinking fast in 1960!?" Drugs, and lots of 'em of course.

comment My Gears Are not Shifting Well
Looking at your third largest cog on the cassette it looks badly worn. That won't stop you changing gears, but it could mean trouble when you do.

comment What to do when there's no more adjustment room on disc brakes
It's a good tip for people who have the opposite problem to me, but I needed the rotor to go toward the wheel - or the calliper to go away from the wheel.

comment Why ride a fixed-gear bike?
Well I did make that comment four years ago. Trends have a way of going away to be replaced by something else. I mean, how else would capitalism keep selling us stuff?

comment Making my children's bike trailer more comfortable
I did exactly this to our bike trailer, that had the same sling style seat. I presume you've added a bit of padding for the seat on top of the wood. It's funny, my kids just couldn't stay awake in the trailer. I'd put 'em in after kindy and they'd be out cold by the time I was out of the driveway.

comment Can you take apart rear derailleurs, and how do you put them back together again?
@Batman: "Its spelled deraileur. Park Tool has a derailleur service guideā€¦". Ok, now I'm really confused. How many Ls are there?
