Bike Locking Options

Hey all, I could use a little bike locking advice from the more experienced commuters. I've been commuting to school and up until now my main form of bike security has been a cheap u-bar and a 40+lb...

I'm with pretty much everyone else. Light yourself up like a Christmas tree and ride defensively. I've found riding out a little further into the lane (not so close to the side) actually increases...

Thissss x 1000. I know the allure of a sexy bike, but I also know what it's like to be broke. The last thing you want to do is sink all your money into a bike that's much fancier than you need and...

Depends on where you live. In many areas, it's legal as long as you run facing the flow of traffic and don't interfere with the normal flow of traffic (aka you have to get out of the way if there's a...

That part we can agree on. A bit of mutual respect and understanding goes a long way, but those two things are sadly lacking when it comes to transportation. I think a lot of us are culprits in that...

Dang. I definitely lose, I have like 6 steps into my apartment. 16 if it's raining and I decide to bring my bike inside the office.

I also have the most impractical bike ever for hauling up...

Haha mctrek I felt the same yesterday. It was drizzling but it was up in the 60's, and as an Ohioan I don't waste 60-degree days in March ;)

Whoa there, calm down killer. First of all, the term "not significant" means not statistically different from how it is at any other time of the year. As in, the news reports those three crashes...

Agree to disagree. I see no difference between running in the bike lane and running in the road- both come with risks and you have to be aware of what's around you and prepared to get out of the way,...

Not unusual. As a runner, you're supposed to run against the direction of traffic. I used to run in the roads all the time- it's softer and has less obstacles than the sidewalk. We don't have bike...

Thanks to both of you. I'm thinking if it's a late 70's hi-ten model I'm not interested, mostly I'm interested in the 80's cromoly ones. Booo.
