Weak abdominal and back muscles. Potentially your bars are too low.

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?

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.

So discussing which he should do is a bit like discussing whether or not he should invest in a sole proprietorship llama farm...
Real car enthusiasts don't lease BMWs. They drive an F250 to haul their car to the track.
