      The Sunagon. I destroyed my first one decades ago, and picked this one up a while back.

      If the Litespeed is slightly too small and has downtube clearance issues, then I'd probably get:

      5mm crown race spacer
      Layback seatpost (Thomson or Eriksen)
      Longer stem (Thomson or Moots)
      ...

      I think someone is having a bad day, or possibly got dropped by someone on an 'entry level alu bike'.

      I agreed with this.

      Because of my foot shape, I can't wear Shimano shoes due to the low and narrow toe box, Adidas tend to be too narrow as well, and Specialized are near perfect. Here's a...

      I'm surprised by the general consensus that the CL is ugly. I think it's a very nice looking car, far better than the next-generation CL or same-generation Accords.

      The CL has a low belt line,...

      I had a '98 2.3 CL exactly like that, but with a manual: great car, no reliability issues, a little dull to drive.

      However, I bought it at night and thought it was silver. I soon realized that it...

      I took the 29er singlespeed out last night: 60km (37mi), four hours, 1510m (4950ft) climbing. I was happy to hit 50kph (31mph) with 32x20 gearing.

      It looks like the GPS cut out towards the end...

      I have downtube shifters on my carbon bike (fine, half carbon) and brifters on my steel bike. Both work, and I don't feel any more or less idiotic when I switch bikes.

      I'd agree with this one. I put a light-weight flywheel on my old GTI 16V (2L), and it was a lot of fun. The engine would bog down if you didn't get it quite right, but overall it was an improvement.

      Okay, how would a real-world W140 vs '05 Corolla do?

      FWIW, my old '07 Outback Sport was too small. A small stroller barely fit in the back and the rear seat was too small. I'm 5'10" and couldn't drive comfortably with a rear-facing baby seat in the...

      Funny, I used to work down the street from Criswell. Come down here and we can go pick out a Commodore in any color you want. You can even get a 'real' SS if you want.

      The cyclist was in his right to take the lane. Letting the van pass that close to a roundabout is unnecessary and unsafe.

      On top of that, the van passed on the right and later didn't give the...
