    How many lumens is enough?

    i have some time. im not in any hurry. in fact, i am not sure i will be needing a light at all. i think i would prolly go with the Exposure Maxx D or maybe the the new cygolite trion.

    How many lumens is enough?

    i have learned that the typical HID car headlight (found on luxury cars mosly) are around 1200 lumens. i can use that as a reference because there are a lot of people in my area that use these lights either as OEM or an aftermarket upgrade. for for entertainment only, i found a way to attach...

    How many lumens is enough?

    i guess i would like the equivelent of a car's hi beams. i would like a ton of light, but how many lumens would do that?

    How many lumens is enough?

    I am just curious about how much light is appropriate for riding on open country roads that are flat where objects (such as buildings, outdoor floodlights, etc) can be seen for miles. Think: Kansas when there are no crops blocking any viewing. I am looking at Exposure's new Maxx D (the big...

    washing out embrocations in clothing

    Quoleum is very oil based. It is a pain to wash it off my hands and legs. That is the main reason I am asking people. On the other hand, when I wash my bibs, I don't feel any of the oil in the fabric, but i am still weary that a little oil will still remain and possible build up over time.

    washing out embrocations in clothing

    I use Quoleum Medium embrocation now and again, sometimes under knee warmers. I am worried about it damaging the fabric over time. Does anyone know of detergents or other things that are designed to remove the embrocation from cycling clothing?

    Lame Interbike?

    I remember last Interbike by having all the cool online sites (pez, velonews, bikeradar, etc) plastering pic after pic of awsome new stuff. I remember being "wowed" by nearly every picture. but this year is totally different! i have only been "wowed" a couple of times and worse yet, where are...

    Ultimate Justce for cyclists!

    the point you make is two-fold. the first possibility is that the motorist (being the cowardly trash they are) will probably not do it again. the other possibility is that since most people are psychotic and homicidal monsters, will murder the next cyclist they see without any remorse and...

    Ultimate Justce for cyclists!

    i think i found a way for us cyclist to "get back" at bad drivers. it all starts with some driver doing something that threatens our safety. i will use the example of being "buzzed" since that is the most likely violation for us on open roads. first, get a "bullet-cam" that records video at a...

    Q-Rings and Vumaquad

    Will Rotor's Q-Rings fit Zipp's Vumaquad crank? My theory is "no" because the crank has four spider arms and the Q-Rings seems to be designed for five-spidered cranks. Am I worng/right? Has anyone heard anything about this compatability issue?

    Full Ceramics

    its all that fast food. too bad the parents dont realize that some of the cheapest food available is also some of the most nutritious and easiest to prepare. i usually buy this monster bag of broccoli for like $10 and then steam about 2 cups of it. its done in 5 minutes (including prep time)...
