Thanks. The difficulty in removing the wheel is one reason I want tough tires. I had the, Schwalbe Marathon Plus. I might upgrade to the Supreme.

The LBS says they can do the roller brake with this. I'm leaning toward that. I don't want disc brakes because they have less room for error as to adjustments. If the roller brake doesn't work, I...

Versa Alfine Shifters (LHT build up)

Bad news: My Surly Cross Check commuter was stolen. I'm mostly over being ****ed off. Now, I'm looking at next steps.

Good news: I'm probably going to build up a Long Haul Trucker frame with...

The explanation of the cop sounds mostly reasonable--eight total riders ticketed, all of whom supposedly blew the sign without slowing. We cyclists need to pick our battles, and defending scofflaws...

Why? If you can't stripe a safe bike lane, you don't have to stripe one. In Columbus, we will soon have sharrows on High Street (the central North-South street). The City couldn't stripe a safe...

This is the problem. This is why we have unsafe bike lanes. A door-zone bike lane is worse than no lane at all. At least then it would be harder for a cop to say that you belonged in the door...

The person could also have heart or lung problems that make it dangerous to do even moderate exercise. That said, Cephy is right that a few people probably use a chair who don't need it. People in...

I hope this was sarcastic. In isolation, the ad is somewhat ambiguous, but it wasn't run in isolation. Chase was catering to us. Let's not slap them on the hand. Someone else pointed out that he...

I agree as to lights when other vehicles (including bikes) need lights, but any penalties should be so small as to be mostly symbolic. I'd rather see the town give away $10 white and red blinkies to...

Given the context of the WaMu takeover the other healthy-lifestyle ads, I think this clearly meant as a compliment.


Probably true. I'd add that we need to save the outrage for companies that...

If there's anyplace it's OK to rant a little about an anti-cyclist ad, it's in the advocacy section of a message board for cyclists. That said, I don't see how the ad is anti-cyclist.

Mauriceloridans,
I stand corrected on Louisiana law. I stick by my point that if you know you have to ride to get someplace, you shouldn't have anything to drink. Period.
