Do I have a lemon bicycle?

When should I stop repairing this bike and buy a new one? I have a road bike of unknown age which I bought for $95 last year. Since then I've spent half again that on it---truing the back wheel, putting the chain back together after it inexplicably fell off, new (27") tires that won't fit a modern bike's wheels, etc. Now I'm looking at some more repairs, and I'm wondering whether it might be more economical to buy a newer (i.e., slightly nicer, but still used) bicycle. I'm in Chicago and mostly ride to get around the neighborhood, with the odd weekend ride (<25mi, maybe 12-14mph). [more inside]

How to get to work faster on a bike?

Two years ago I sold the car and started riding my bicycle to work, about 26 km a day. However, over those two years, my average speed has not increased, in fact I think I'm actually a little slower than last year. Help me get to work faster! I'm interested in a simple approach: a basic training program, maybe- I don't want to change bicycles or go single speed.

Bike parts from India

It is so tantalizing to be able to see the produce of the the large manufacturers of bicycles in India via their web pages, yet not have any access in quantities less than a fully loaded container. Does anyone know of a local bike shop in India, at least connected to email, who will ship small amounts of bike parts by mail out of the country? It seems to me a local shop would have access through the normal distribution channels to parts from the big companies in small quantities. This stuff is vital to repairing old British bikes, there being virtually no domestic manufacture there anymore. I know that there exists lots out there from bikes that have been parted out, but finding who has it when you need it is difficult.

Can a cop retaliate to an objection to a fine he's issued by adding a more serious offence?

I was recently issued a minor traffic infringement by a Melbourne police officer. I told him that I believed the charge was unfair and that I intended to contest it in court.
