    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    Looking over all of the posts by CampyBob on this thread, listing the multitudes of cyclists assaulted, I might wonder if any of them figured they were in a place where they might expect to be assaulted. According to HERE Tucson is safer than 33% of other US cities. You judge the odds and place...

    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    I've been doing triathlon for three years now. I haven't carried a gun while swimming - not because I'm not paranoid (TZ knows I am) but because I haven't glued a holster pocket on my wetsuit for a pistol yet. But I have been diving in areas where the lobster boatmen frequently snag dive flags...

    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    As the major hub or heroin trafficing from SE Asia to Europe, I wounder how Bangladesh has avoided the crime associated with drug smuggling? "According to the Department of Narcotics Control in Bangladesh, about 100,000 people are involved in drug trafficking in Bangladesh, with a majority...

    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    CB posts more incidents of cyclists attacked. TZ posts more insults. What's the balance - one insult nullifies one factual report? If so, TZ is way, way behind. I doubt he can catch up...

    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    Gosh, you raise points, like "the militia" and "order of amendments", then when challenged, decide to dismiss the topics as irrelevant. Stick to your guns man! Electing people who will not tyrannize us? Yeah, like the Egyptians, who thought they were doing that, until the military decided...

    Only amongst scholars, who point out that the ordering of the adopted amendments went through several revisions and is rather fortuitous. http://www.archives.gov/legislative/features/bor/index.html Mao Zedong wasn't kidding when he said "Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun"...

    Chain Rides between Chainrings on Downshift

    Thanks for your recommendations - I'll add them to my list of options to consider. I also found on the Cervelo forum comments about adding a shim washer to move the FD a bit more rearward, as well as using a Rotor SL 101-Ti chain, which might be hair wider than the Shimano 6700 10-speed chain...

    Chain Rides between Chainrings on Downshift

    Now that you mention it, I think it happens in the smaller cogs. Simply shifting it back to the big ring doesn't help and I have to shift to middle cogs before I can get it to drop cleanly to the small ring. Does this prescribe any particular gearing adjustment?

    Chain Rides between Chainrings on Downshift

    The bike is a stock Cervelo P2 with Rotor chainrings as the only change in drive parts. I just had it overhauled the 2nd time in 3yr with new cables and housings. It has always had this problem, so I'm wondering if the Rotor rings might just be made well for 10 speed Shimano.

    Chain Rides between Chainrings on Downshift

    Sometimes, when shifting down from the big ring to the small ring, my chain drops between the rings and free-spins until I wiggle the shifter up and back down to re-drop the chain on the small ring. I'm running 50/34 Rotor rings on identical cranksets on both my road and tri-bike, and it only...

    12-25 to 11-28 with Compact Crank

    Looks like I have a 6600 short cage on my road bike with 50/34 Rotor rings and 11-32 cassette, and 6700 short cage on my Tri-bike with 50/34 Rotor rings and 12-25 cassette. I'm not sure how my LBS got my road bike to work in that configuration. Maybe the Rotor rings? Anyway, I'll try the 11-28...

    12-25 to 11-28 with Compact Crank

    I have a 12-25 on my Tri-bike with a compact crank. For an exceptionally hilly course (for a triathlon, anyway) I'd like to put on a 11-28. Should I expect to need to tweak the gears, or will my Shimano Ultegra derailleurs manage it OK?

    Riding while heavily armed http://forum.slowtwitch.com/gforum.cgi?do=post_view_flat;post=3808486;page=1;mh=-1;sb=post_latest_reply;so=ASC Anyway, that's the title. But a 223 is pretty light - a 308 would be a better choice.
