With my fleet of bikes, I’m always looking for great ways to store them. The SafeRacks wall shelf from Costco is one of my favorite bike storage items as it’s priced well and very functional. These are currently selling on Costco’s website for $49.99 for the two 18×48” shelves with four hooks. These are reallyContinue reading “Costco SafeRacks Wall Shelf Combo Kit Review”
Because I like my 1974 Le Tour so much, I decided to pick up a Super. I like the combo of the white paint and red decals. This one has some of the improvements I wondered about like downtube shifters, alloy rims, and 12 speeds. It’s about 26lbs, so 5lbs lighter than my 74. It’sContinue reading “1981 Schwinn Super Le Tour Summercloud White”

The Shimano Ultegra RD-6600 rear derailleur for road bikes. This is an older model and at the time it was the second-best road derailleur in the Shimano line up right behind Dura ace. I’m not completely sure about production dates for this model, but the one pictured came on my 2008 Fuji Cross Comp. StillContinue reading “Shimano Ultegra RD-6600 Rear Derailleur Images and Manual”
For years I would have a kidney stone every other year. Seemed to be guaranteed that it would happen. But now since I started cycling regularly, I haven’t had one in 5 years. I’m not sure why that is. Could be some coincidence? A search will show many cyclists do have kidney stones, and I’veContinue reading “Kidney Stones and Cycling”
I’ve spent about the last year trying to stop my Fuji Cross Comp from ghost shifting. Every time I checked it on the stand it shifted perfectly. Often, I would have rides that it shifted fine.
