Smartphones -- locked or unlocked?

Sat, 03 Dec 2016 21:05:50 GMT

I'm about to replace my old smartphone with a new one. I know which one I want to get. It's available from my carrier (Verizon) and also available unlocked. Which is the better option? Does anyone have an unlocked phone? If I get it from Verizon I will pay $17 per month for 24 months, total cost...



December rides...

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 17:16:17 GMT

Let's get this party started! I haven't ridden yet this month, but posted a club ride for tomorrow because the weather forecast looked good, sunshine with temps in the high 40s. Then they added "windy" to the forecast. So not sure if it will be okay or too windy. Canceling and rescheduling for...



Which Tires?

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 14:43:05 GMT

I used my CX bike as a commuter, until the day I tried my Zurich Le Mond. It's so much faster! Ended up switching all my Revelate bags, which I use for commuting, to it. The only issue is the tires. For regular road use, I like Continental GP 4000s's. I feel like I should use something with a...



My generator light isn't generating... except...

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 03:11:31 GMT

So I have an awesome Busch-Muller light ... hub generator. Now, from first installation it's gone from bright to not so bright and back and forth on bumpy roads, so I thought... one of my connections isn't right. When I installed it first time I accidentally did lots of ferocious soldering for...

Back in the saddle search again (or not)

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 21:09:39 GMT

So, a quick forum search shows that I've been using the Bontrager Affinity RXL saddle for about five years now, maybe more. After a while these saddles develop a permanent indentation on either side, probably where two separate pieces of foam padding meet or something like that. Anyway I had one...



Ankle/foot area slightly swollen and tender. Wondering if it could be tendinitis...

Sat, 26 Nov 2016 05:00:07 GMT

Ok- Just wondering if anyone has had this problem or recognizes these symptoms. The top of my foot adjacent to my ankle, and front of my leg immediately above the ankle is slightly swollen and tender to the touch. It doesn't usually hurt walking or cycling but definitely hurts if I point my toe....



Scary...

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 16:36:03 GMT

I took today off so got to sleep in, not one of my 3 alarms were set :cool: Woke up, was bad and played with my new phone while still in bed (S7 Active, my S5 Active was failing), got up and walked into the living room. Head suddenly felt very strange, I do get dizzy sometimes when I get up or lay...



Painting furniture...?

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 23:46:57 GMT

I have three big household expenses on the horizon: 1. Rip up the wall to wall carpet in my 1BR condo and get new floors. 2. Re-do all three of my closets with new shelves, drawers, hanging rods, etc. 3. Replace my bedroom furniture. The new floor project is stalled, as I'm having trouble...

newbie with questions! (UTI stuff)

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 19:13:57 GMT

Hi there. I'm new to this forum. I found this forum while searching for info on cycling and UTIs in women. I saw an ancient thread here on the topic and thought I would ask again now, since there may be more/different people around and since my questions are a little different anyway. But...

T'ai Chi Ch'uan

Sat, 12 Nov 2016 17:20:56 GMT

As I've done so many times before, my ever decreasing ability to do traditional Kettlebell competition style workouts (and even the fitness styles) beyond simple swing intervals, I've found another activity. I can still do simple KB workouts (and do), but my destroyed shoulders and neck really...
