Is the San Francisco Embarcadero Bike Station too good to be true? I'm considering using it for my commute from BART out to the Presidio. There are 96 spaces available. Is it overcrowded? Will I be stuck when I have to park my bike there on Tuesday afternoons at 5pm? Will my beautiful Felt Z95 get carted off by evil-doers?

I'm looking for information regarding the feasibility of a hidden GPS tracking system for bicycles. The goal is to track/recover stolen bicycles. This product looks promising (if it was actually available), but also looks like it would be easy to spot/remove. Ideally it should be able to be inserted into the frame tubing so it could be installed in various types of bikes. This is for a community wide effort with local law enforcements cooperation. Has anyone heard of this being done before? Either on an individual level, or better yet a community Implementation of some kind. Thanks all.

I put together my new bike, a Nirve single speed cruiser, this weekend and, like an idiot, did not grease the seatpost before installing it (it was already quasi-slimy and I thought that was enough). Guess what happened? It's completely stuck and I'd kind of like to get it out. [more inside]

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]

Help me find my perfect bike. I have not owned a bike since I was a child so I am having a hard time picking one now.

We're living in Portland, Oregon and I'm looking to buy a bike I can use to cycle a few miles to work downtown and get around our neighbourhood. There's so many bike shops here we don't know where to start looking. I'd prefer a good-quality secondhand bike, but could probably stretch to a new one if I had to. Neither of us are bike nerds so are wary of being sold the wrong thing, so we're after a place that will give us good, honest, advice and have a good range of bikes. Thanks.
I'd like to take my smartphone (HTC Hero) with me when I'm cycling and use it as a trip computer. Problem: I'm nervous that I'll be taking it home in pieces. Are there any smartphone bike mounts that will secure my Hero to the bike as well as protect it in the event that I crash?
Is there a tool out there which will allow me to plug in the mileage I need for a certain cycling training ride, and will spit out a route that will get me that amount of miles? Maybe using Google maps or something? I'm in Boise,ID, if that matters.
