Question about a part I broke

Is there any reason I need to replace this piece of plastic? I don't wear
pants while riding.

I had a stock chainring guard on my bike until I upgraded my rings (and
never replaced the guard). ...

Buying a new MTB


Very much agreed. You'll want to run V-brakes or cantis if you do this,
as swapping wheels with disc rotors that will invariably not line up is
just as annoying as a tire swap.

My first snapped chain

Last evening on a ride I snapped my first chain....a 10-speed Shimano.
A scary experience when riding in traffic (merging into a left turn

So who here has received a ticket while bicycling?

I've tried on a couple of occasions to provoke a speeding ticket by

Hi all,

A friend of mine just got his first MTB. It's an entry-level beast,
