Nice article, the approach of buying quality second hand usually works for most things as often they are bought purely because they are expensive by people with more money than they know what to do with and because it is a brand. so I pick up Nike goretex jackets never worn in anger, goretex walking boots that went no further than a pub carpark or my most recent purchase a 2001 marin rocky ridge off ebay for 230 quid. more expensive than it could have been as I ended up in a bidding war but a nice retro bike with under 200 miles on it, bombproof components, alloy frame and ridden by little old fella up and down the canal towpath then stored for 12 years. got a load of extras to empty his shed but all usefull so other than the train journey to pick it up I was well happy with a thousand pound bike for quarter the price. by the time I've upgraded the bits I want over time off ebay it will probably out last me unless it gets nicked.one thing with older bikes is you often know what you are getting, a taiwanese made bike is totally different to a chinese one. it also helps if you are familiar with the brand and how it rides. don't be afraid to tatty a bike up a bit, I had one of the best specced cannondales in york but the paintwork was so messed up and it was so grubby apart from where it needed to be clean that it never got any interest until it was stolen from work - inside the building at that. A friend of mine paints rust and dirt on his or least he says that's what it is.another plus side for second hand is retro often has its own cool and often these bikes got ridden a couple of times a month rather than 30 miles a day which is what mine used to be subjected to. I did just over 13000 in one year, I was gutted when the battery on my cateye went flat at 28k.as a price guide line for second hand they reckon half the purchase price then 10% off per year.
Learn how to fix EVERYTHING on your bike yourself. My bike started out as a Halfords cheapie, an Apollo Belmont. When the rear wheel bearings need adjusting then it is time to get the spanners out. If wheels rub on brake blocks, adjust them, or true the wheel. If a bike goes wrong on the road there is no equivalent of the AA or RAC. If a component is not up to the job, find out what is compatible and replace it yourself. The last time I took a bike back to a bike shop for repair was 1982. Putting LBS mechanics out of a job? Perhaps but I have to buy spares and components from somewhere.
Interesting scope of feedback on here. I think you've got a reasonable split between people who've had a bad experience with a cheap consumer bike - the haters; and those who accept that they're a cheap bike and (mostly) don't expect it to last very long.Many of us are on limited household budgets and have kids that grow like bamboo. It's not practical to buy quality bikes for kids, as much as we parents try to educate kids leave their bikes out in the garden every day, they forget to lock them, they crash them, abuse them, don't maintain them and then grow out of them. Of course if you're taking cycling seriously then invest in a quality bike. However, the vast majority of people either cycle a mile or two to work, go out for a ride with the kids at the weekend (if the weather's ok) or leave the bike in the shed for weeks on end. Cheap bikes for the masses fill a demand for the masses who are unlikely to ever attempt a downhill course or a ride of more than a few miles.I do agree however with cheap suspension. I've bought cheap suspension bikes for my kids because they want to be like the other kids. But not without explaining again and again how cheap suspension bikes are heavy, hard work to ride and 20mm of travel is quite useless. Doesn't stop them wanting them of course.As a lad in the '70s the only way I could have a bike was being able to maintain it myself, fixing it with cheap or secondhand parts, servicing, greasing, adjusting. If you look around at the bikes cycling past how many have cables hanging off, missing brakes, broken gears and flat tyres. This is ignorance, cheap bikes may break more often but parts are cheap and plentiful and a pump costs less than a Big Mac.
A significant greater proportion of men were identified in the MOH group 32.5% vs. migraine 12.5% (p=0.002). There were no statistically significant differences between the two headache groups with respect to personality. However, compared to the RG group both headache groups had significantly lower Extraversion scores (MOH: 27.5±8.5, RG: 29.8±6.2, p=0.002 vs. Migraine: 26.6±7.3, RG: 29.8±6.2, p
Results: The overall mean age of participants was 37.5 ± 11.3. Sixty-six subjects (10.8%) experienced aura. Among patients with chronic migraine, 210 cases (34.4%) suffered from medication overuse headache. No significant difference was seen between two types of migraine, including chronic and episodic, in terms of gastrointestinal diseases (including IBS, constipation, heartburn, peptic ulcer disease, dyspepsia and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease), thyroid disorders (hypo- and hyperthyroid) and having past medical history of surgery (any kinds). However, interesting results were obtained via analyzing the association between number of headache days and comorbidities among episodic migraineurs. After adjusting for potential confounders including age, sex, and intensity of headache in the multivariate regression models, the risk of gastrointestinal complaints among episodic migraineurs with 8-14 days of headache per month is 1.9 fold greater than those with less than 8 days of headache (CI= 1.10-3.17; P value= 0.014).
Results: Most of the previously reported clinical profile of AH (including duration of the acute phase and headache features) was confirmed, while other aspects were partially modified. In particular: 1. A milder, postictal headache phase persisted after the remission of the severe pain in (55 patients, 27.5%); 2. Associated symptoms during AH attacks were reported by 59 (29.5%), the most common being restlessness (n=40) and ipsilateral tearing (n=28).
