Weak abdominal and back muscles. Potentially your bars are too low.
Yes, the Mexican consulate. Even if he didn't assert his right to consular representation in a timely fashion, it doesn't change the fact that consular representation is a widely held, internationally-recognized right, whose protections for US citizens has now been eroded by the decision to execute Leal. I struggle to see a calculus where executing Leal (vs. keeping him locked up for life) is worth more than preserving and reinforcing an internationally-recognized right...

Yeah, as I've said before, not much use learning a language that 9m people speak, especially when 8.9m of them also speak English. BTW as a Swede, I've got to know -- what about the culture of Sweden is interesting?

But you could have assumed, since it is "bicycle mechanics, remedial edition," as you say, that they were simply on too tight and that it was turning in the correct direction. I have changed a pair of pedals before. Fair enough. What kind of pedal wrench do you have? I have a VAR and a Park, and they're both long enough to put...
Yeah, no offense, but if you can't get a pedal off with a 15mm pedal wrench on the flats, what are we supposed to think? It's not like you're asking how to press in a BB30 bottom bracket, how a Campy UT Hirth joint assembles, or how to press in a headset... Removing the pedals from a crank arm is sort of "bicycle mechanics, remedial edition" now available from Rodale press.

LHS are not on the Barrie. They're on the Van.
