    How do you solve the hunger issues?

    Finding healthy snacks is a great suggestion. However, when I try having small, frequent meals throughout the day I eat more than I should. I think this is mostly due to how I typically eat. I like feeling full after a meal and eating a lot. Moreover, when I begin eating I have difficulties...

    Buy The Bike In A Specialized Store!

    I originally bought mine in a supermarket. Luckily, I had no issues with it. I would still recommend buying it in a specialized store, though. People who work there tend to be more knowledgeable and passionate about the topic. They want to leave the customer equipped well and with a bicycle...

    Taking Care Of The Bike After The Rain

    I probably do not do as much as I should. I quickly wipe it off and let it finish drying on its own in my garage. I've never heard of treating it with some kind of ointment or the like.

    Pricing Used Bikes

    Like everyone else has said in this forum, it depends on the condition of the bicycle. This is the general rule for any used product, though. I would suggest inspecting the bicycle before you make the actual purchase. If the seller is unwilling or hesistant to comply then there is something...

    Do You Think Cycling Can Be As Popular As The Other Major Sports In The U.s.?

    Well, I do not believe any sport was particularly conceived to entertain an audience; they were developed as a means to entertain those who played. People watching from the sidelines naturally resulted.

    Bike Trails Unsafe?

    Well, it is not like where I live is very high in crime. On the contrary, it is known as a fairly quiet town. The trail does lead into a few towns that have a poor reputation. However, I figured most trails necessitated caution for the reason of potential perpentraters. They are usually not...

    Do You Think Cycling Can Be As Popular As The Other Major Sports In The U.s.?

    That's exactly right. Cycling lacks the entertaining appeal that basketball, football, tennis, etc. has. There is little interaction amongst competitors.

    Is Wearing A Reflector Necessary During The Day Or At Night Only?

    I had no idea you are supposed to use a reflector for day riding too. Maybe I need to take advice from this thread as well. I guess it isn't much of an inconvenience depending on what you have. Plus, it is better safe than sorry.
