This is an unusually large Web site, and there is a lot to see here.
There are close to 200 separate articles, some of them many pages long.
All of the pages are tightly connected to one another by the use of a great many hyperlinks.
There are very few decorative graphics, but lots of photos and drawings for illustrative purposes. If you like fancy graphics and animations, I'd suggest you turn on your television, particularly during ads for beer or'll see stuff that makes anything on the Web look like pencil sketches by comparision.

There are four different types of pages that make up this site:

Articles The articles are mostly written by me, and most of them are technical "how-to" articles or contain reference information on hardware.
There are also articles on touring and other aspects of cycling, by me and by guest authors.
Directories There are so many articles that I created multiple directories, organized by topic.
These directories list not only articles on this site, but also relevant links.
The yellow grid at the bottom of the page will take you to these directories.
Commercial pages The commercial pages highlight products that we sell. We don't list everything we sell on the site, but focus on specific items that I personally like, or that may be hard to find at your local bike shop.
We ship parts and accessories all over the world! The white grid takes you to the commercial pages.
Personal pages I have a totally free hand with this site, and I have also put up material of a personal nature. If you share some of my interests and avocations, you may find some useful or amusing things in these pages.
The beige grid at the bottom of the page will take you to these directories.

For speedy navigation, there's a fast-loading "Hub" page
accessible by clicking on the Harris Cyclery Logo at the top of most pages.
