Yeah, what I disagreed with was:
- "If you want to dude up like Lance Armstrong coming over the Col du Tourmalet, feel free, but you'll get funny looks." No you won't. Boston commuters do not give a rat's ass what other people are wearing.
- "Shoes with pedal clips are problematic for riding in cities, where you often have to stop in a hurry; I wear sneaks and go clipless." Boy needs to learn his terminology.
- "Hit the bikepaths where possible" -- what "bikepaths"? They're MUPs, and they're all heavily used by non-cyclists, and really not the way to go.
- "The shower question tends to be a deal-breaker; if you can't clean up, you can't commute." Right, but "clean up" != "shower".
