    You say that till they steal your low cost hot rod. Seriously, when they cleaned up the mess, they found an underground cave by Anaheim Stadium with couple hundred bikes. Many low cost hot rods.

    Oem tubes? Buy new ones, use the adapter and be sure not to bend over the Presta core while installing the adapter. Never had air loss problems in mentioned fashion.

    My take on it is that people who are out of shape do not want to do anything in hot weather, not on an E-bike, on their feet or sitting in a chair. If you are in shape you will take the heat better and it will be why on very hot or humid days you...

    25 years ago there were a half-dozen or more cycle races short to long within an hours drive, but most all of them died off over the years, especially during the shutdown due to covid. A drawback to living in a smaller population center where...

    Been very hot so I've been trying various electrolyte powders to take along on rides. Pedialyte Sport, Liquid IV, Propel, G Zero, and a couple others. I read a review last night about the G Zero mix AFTER I bought a box of G Zero mix...

    23 easy happy miles. I call it Metrology Man Ride. Started a new job on Thursday. Back to quality inspection after a rough hard labor 8 months. Took a chance applying for a job in my past field. Big difference.

    Don't wear a shirt that gets sweaty. In the heat around here Gina wears something that doesn't gather sweat over her upper body. She wears something that let's her even out her tan lines as well. After the ride a quick wipe down with a towel...

    I'd bet it's your adjustment and set up. I'm a Clydesdale at 240 pounds and I spin around 100rpm with no discomfort. Also check into different saddles. I have used Terry WTB Cannondale Trek Specialized Selle Italia, and found the Terry...
