Re: Toasted a wheel bearing on my Cranbrook.
Well, I suppose we 'justify' our purchases because we're not willing to concede the notion that one must, must spend big money on bikes or components.
We're not blind to the fact that higher cost materials mostly wear better than cheap ones.
But we are cheap. We're not ashamed of it and we intend to make it work and to tell others that they, too, can make it work.
