Nancy asks…

Is it cost effective to replace the drivetrain on an older mountain bike?

I have at least 5000 miles on my well cared for Cannondale F900. All other components are in excellent shape.

I would appreciate some opinions on whether it makes sense to replace the drive train, or if I will get better VALUE buying a comparable new bike.
EDIT: Cables and chain are newer and probably salvageable… so everything else in this case including the derailleur…

Administrator answers:

I’d replace what you need to in the drivetrain and keep the bike going….as long as you still like the bike and the rest of the components. You can buy a cassette, rings, and a chain for as little as $100 if you shop smart…..$150 to $200 if you buy better parts at normal retail. You can even find package deals with the derailleur, chain, and cassette for good prices online.

If you’ve ridden that bike very hard or had some tumbling crashes, then you might consider a new bike (or just a frame). Lots of bikes can go forever and never fail, but with hard use and aluminum frames, it makes sense to replace them after several years…..cheap insurance when compared with medical bills. :o )

Mary asks…

What are the specific laws regarding roadway easements in the state of Washington?

Are owners with roadway easements (private roads) crossing their property able to restrict legitimate use of these roads? I wish to obtain access to a national park and bike trail near my home, but I am finding that most of my neighbors who have roads that cross this trail have resisted my using these roads to gain access with my bicycle. Can the easements associated with these roads be found in public records, such as the assessor’s report? Where would I find the state regulations that address roadway easements?

Administrator answers:

At the state legislature, revised statutes
Revised Code of Washington (RCW)Last Update: December 10, 2009

The Revised Code of Washington (RCW) is the compilation of all permanent laws now in force. It is a collection of Session Laws (enacted by the Legislature, and signed by the Governor, or enacted via the initiative process), arranged by topic, with amendments added and repealed laws removed. It does not include temporary laws such as appropriations acts. The official version of the RCW is published by the Statute Law Committee and the Code Reviser.

The online version of the RCW is updated twice a year, once in the early fall following the legislative session, and again at the end of the year if a ballot measure that changes the law passed at the general election.
There are several ways to find RCWs. Please see the links and information below:

Donald asks…

How much does motorcycle insurance cost?

Im planning on purchasing an ’08 kawasaki ninja 250 for college but I am doing so without my parents approval which means i have to pay for everything (bummer!) But I was wondering how much typical insurance would be for a bike like this???

Administrator answers:

Haha, no parents approval! Too familiar a story!

Here is the tip on insurance. Most companies (like Gaico, which I have for my bike) offer free quotes online. Hence, even if you don’t have a bike, you can go and fill one out (with the name/year of the bike you want) and see what it will give you. Motorcycle Safety course reduces the cost of insurance.

250cc ninja is a great bike. The insurance on those is isually fairly low, since insurance is basically cc dependednt. However, since 08 has the new (sportbike) styling, i believe insurace would be higher.

Good luck.

Mark asks…

Can a lie about having historical plates for cheaper insurance?

When trying to get a quote from progressive online, it asks whether the motorcycle is registered as a historical vehicle. If I click yes the insurance is 50% cheaper than normal. Can I just click yes and buy then insurance, then register my bike? I don’t have much money, and I only want to ride it for 2 months before I move.

Administrator answers:

You can but you’d be paying for nothing as you wouldn’t be insured…,…
