re: Changing brake pads...couple questions - wheelr
[quote]Any cheap c clamp will do?[/quote] Perfect situation for a cheap harbor freight tool. You won't be applying much pressure. Make sure it has at least a few inches of clearance depending on your caliper size. Use the old pad to press in all the pistons at once....

[quote]Rules have never been to ride against traffic. Bicycles are supposed to obey the same rules of the road as cars. [/quote] Correct. I cringe when i see bikers riding the wrong way in the bike lanes on either side of Johnston Street. It is just a matter of time until they get hit. Peo...

re: OT photographers - What filter should I buy? - wheelr
I wouldn't say ND filters are a one trick pony. They can be used for long exposures in bright light but probably more importantly, for stopping down when shooting with a flash in daylight. Check the best rated filters on BH Photo. I'm not sure BB will carry the top end pieces. You have to watc...

re: Indiana teen girls murdered took pic of killer - wheelr
[quote]Serious question as I don't have a clue here, but are we not able to zoom in and clean up photos better these days?

[quote]Why do you think they were taking pictures of him? And why is it so grainy that it's harder to make out who it may be?[/quote] My guess is he happened to be included in a picture that was taken of something else. It is pixelated because he was a small part of the image and they zoom...

re: Garmin Fenix 3 or Suunto Traverse Alpha - wheelr
I have an original Suunto Ambit HR. I've had a pretty good experience with it. It has been used many years and it is still rolling along well, just a little beat up. I don't know about the new watches but I can say the only reason I've heard people complain about Suunto is the time it takes to de...

re: When was the last time you flipped out/lost your cool? - wheelr
Last true 'lost my cool' in public... I designed parts for an oilfield parts manufacturer. Owner wants to start building new products and I'm given specs and told to make it happen. The parts required tighter tolerances than the machine shop was used to. Called a meeting one day and one of the...
