I also refuse...to use a mirror

To me, this is letting the terrorists win. I've commuted by bike every day for several decades and I refuse to keep an eye on cars behind me. This would definitely suck the fun out of biking. I...

Bells can be annoying and make people jump. I just call out a freindly "hello", or sometimes "bicycle".

I'm with you...mirrors are dumb. I too have ridden daily for 40+ years and see no reason to use mirrors.

I kinda liked that strip before, since he's local to Santa Rosa. But now I think Pasties is a jerk. The "try to run them over" part is going too far.

Here's my crazy theory:
If your rear freehub has drag (like if you made the mistake i've done and greased it instead of using light oil), then it can cause the top run of chain to go slack when you...

Here in America, the land of the free, we're allowed to participate in dangerous activities as long as they don't affect others. I can ride my bike off a roof. I might die doing it or it might be...
