I had a great time, but I do understand the warnings I had about the dangerous roads. Starting out on Route 5 there were a TON of angry drivers that came across big groups of cyclists. Saw quite a...

Thanks everyone! I rode with a team, which helped keep my speed up. We were actually some of the last ones to finish - but I don't care, because I finished!

Total elevation was only 1600 feet. Metric was probably only about 1000-1200.

Did it. Now I'm exhausted. But I did it! First century, under my belt. Here's the strava link:...

Alright, century it is. I'm riding with a group so I'll be able to keep a pretty solid pace the whole time. If I survive I'll report back tonight. :)

Can I do this? Or am I crazy?

So tomorrow I'm riding in the Tour de Cure in my area. I've signed up for the 65 mile route, but I am seriously contemplating the full century (I can change when I pick up my packet in the morning)....

Although I love my Felt, there are plenty of other options too. Everyone here seems to love Surly and Kona bikes, and they have options in your price range. I also didn't want disc brakes, which is...

I was looking at that, the Trek Ion CX, and the Felt F75X. Went with the Felt because I got a lot more for the money. With Trek you end up paying for the name, so at similar prices other bikes will...

Well said.

Also, I was unaware how many psychopaths were biking around with knives in their jerseys just so they can stab a dog or two. Pretty eye opening thread.

It can take a bit per car to get through. The worst day last week had me waiting about 5 minutes to get to the front of the pack. Some days, though, there is no traffic there. It all depends on if...

That makes sense. It is a tight shoulder (there's a ditch on the side), but I think there's plenty of room. I'll give it a shot next ride.

Thanks!

Need advice on handling a particular intersection

I've been commuting to work for about a week now and it's been going really well. I have a good route that keeps me off of the main roads, so my commute has been mostly non-eventful. However, there...

Did more testing last night - it is definitely the cover that causes the rattle. I'm fairly certain it's actually the lock switch, but I haven't narrowed it down that far yet. Ultimately I don't...

I feel like the stabilization makes the video worse. And rolling shutter isn't nearly as bad in your video as it was in mine.

I'm going to give mine another week after seeing your videos (I had...

I also got some pretty bad video issues in what I shot today. I'll post some samples later, but it's not good. Almost like waves passing over the video, very strange.

Mine wouldn't put the software on either. But it did on a second SD card I tried in it. It just seems to be finicky.

I'm hoping tech support comes back with some good news. Or at least...

Monoprice Action Camera?

Anyone get one? Mine came in today and I'm having some software issues, just wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same thing.

Other than the software it seems pretty good, though.

What I've always heard is that you're supposed to aim for the squirrel, not try to avoid them. The reason being is that they will dart to one side, so if you pick a side you run a 50/50 shot of...
