    Noisy wheel, please help.

    It's making all kinds of noise and is a bit unstable in the wind.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Pick one:

    A - Just out on a test ride

    B - She's a Roadmaster company rep

    C - It's the 'new bling'

    ( I like 'C'...)

    Photo Caption contest!

    This would be great fodder for the photo caption contest. We'd all have a heyday with this one.

    I at least give her points for converting to bike commuting and actually using a helmet, but she loses many points for style. (especially those socks!)

    At least she's on a bike

    Or a bicycle shaped object anyway.

    Hopefully she has a pal who can explain to her why the roadmaster is no fun to ride and why she should spend money on an actual bicycle.

    I saw something similar but the bike was parked outside the mall. I forget if it was a Roadmaster or a Magna. Must be the new "in thing" for department store MTBs. I wonder if they are marketed as "disc ready".

    It's just an "ad tag" that many department store BSO's have. It's meant to be removed before riding I'm sure.

    Haven't y'all been in Target lately?

    WOW hi-tech!!

    look at the chainstay area by the bottom bracket.
    Is that black bar one of those 'spring loaded stationary stabilization devices'? I wish my roadmaster came with one of those!!!

    Gotta love digital cameras. See something interesting and snap a shot to share with everyone on the Internet.
    A thread should be started with photos of oddball stuff people have taken pictures of.
    Here's mine.

    Some times I think duct tape is even more useful than a lighter.
