Bev: Would auto touch-up paint help any?
Praxis:By the way, the buttons above the comment textarea don't seem to work--the tags they generate come out as plain text
As you can see formatting works for me.
Praxis:Anyway, anyone know a good place for frame powdercoating around here? Thinking of getting the frame done, but I'm hesitant as I don't want to be without the ride for too long.
brian itzaina:clipped a tree mountain bikeing sunday and dislocated my helmet :face-crying:time for a new helmet, looking for suggestions. i use it for road biking, commuting, and mtbiking. thankd in advance.
Cecil:Brian, for what it's worth (not much) I recently spent a week trying on helmets and ended up with a Fox Flux (with my REI dividend)-- it's an MTB helmet but the visor comes off. It fits my squash better than the other helmets I tried on and I found out that I don't have to put a Fox sticker on the back of my truck and go to Glamis, so I'm okay with it. It's well ventilated and I don't notice it even after 6 hours plus which is the best thing I know to say about it. Also, I look like a douchebag in roadie helmets.Does anyone have anything bad to say about the Schwalbe Marathon series? The tires on my LHT are going and they are 26" so options are a little more limited than 700. These are for every day, not loaded touring so 1.5" is cool.Thanks.

phoenix: brian itzaina:anyone use anything to treat brooks bartape?mines really rough on my hands, almost blistered my skin on a long ride. proofride?I think putting even a little bit of proofhide on the tape would make it greasy and then your hands would smell like animal fat for the next two days. I have no idea if anyone has used this product before, but i’ve used it on leather car seats and it works well. It’s called Lexol, it cleans, conditions and protects leather from cracking and doesn’t leave a residie. I believe you can get it at any auto parts store. I haven’t used it it on leather tape, nor have I heard of anybody doing so, but I would imagine it would be ok. If treating the tape isn’t recommended you could always ride with gloves until it breaks in and the edges smooth out.
Q > Does the bar tape need proofide?A > No, no, no!!!
