Derailleur derailed.

The "hanging bolt" or "pivot bolt" assembly which held the rear derailleur to the frame of my son's old mountain bike disassembled while he was riding it and vanished. Is it possible to find generic replacement parts or does it need a whole new derailleur (it's an old Suntour Accushift \alpha-2000)? What's the cheapest way to get this bike running at this point?

Help me like my bike

Is it worth it to drop $175 for a pro bicycle fitting? I'm a injured former marathoner who desperately needs something to fill that moving-fast-outdoors-for-long-distances void, and I'd like for bicycling to do that...except every time I try to bike for anything longer than a few miles I get a terrible grinding sensation in one knee.

hike/bike trails, passing on the left. proper etiquette?

i go bike riding from time to time for exercise, almost always on hike/bike trails. generally, if i'm passing someone, i don't say anything, if it looks like they're clearly to the right, and if there is room to pass on the left. if they're in the left a bit or look like they're wobbling or not paying attention, i'll give a strong "to your left!"

Training for a century but not that seriously

What sort of training plan would you recommend for a cyclist who has ridden 70 miles in six hours quite comfortably and would like to ride a five-hour century, preferably in the next twelve months? Note that it'll be hard to fit more than an hour's ride into a weekday. I've seen a lot of century training plans call for 25 or 35 mile rides during the week, and that's probably not realistic unless I learn to ride a lot faster first. [more inside]

What are some interesting places to eat in Chicago's south side?

Help me plan a food tour of Chicago's south side by bicycle.

A Vintage Bicycle Tour

I ran across a travelogue a while back of two young women going on a long bicycle tour in the Eastern U.S. in the 1930s or 1940s. I think they started from Pennsylvania or another nearby state and originally intended to go west, but ended up going south. On the return trip, I think they took a boat up the Mississippi or another major river. Does this ring a bell? [more inside]

Replacing the frame on a 54cm Cannondale Six13 Feminine

Earlier this year I bought my wife a used 54cm Cannondale Six13 Feminine 3 Compact via Craigslist. It was in mint condition and I basically bought for a small fraction of the retail price - the lady who was selling it got it as a gift from her ex-boyfriend and just wanted to get rid of it. However, I misjudged my wife's frame size - she should be riding a smaller bike. Being that this bike has great components, I have decided to replace the frame. Help me do it! [more inside]
