Of course, you are quite right! The path on the West Side has lights but it is a totally different story.

Steve,

Was it the Van Cortland Park path that you are referring to? What type of bike and what caused you pain? Just curious.

I agree that riding it in the dark is a bad idea. Paved, it should...

I treasure the Van Cortland Park section of the Old Putnam rail trail. It is a link between the rail trails north of NY City and the Greenways of NY City itself. I ride this path on fixed gear road...

Like 28 slick in rear, 25 light tread in front. Back carries more weight and hits more bumps. Smooth sailing so far.

I'm 63 and I have just built my first bike equipped with drop bars (that weren't flipped). I did this for style, as the bike is a fixie and I wanted it to look classic, not current. Prior to this...

I don't know if I should call it a fitness ride so much as a fun ride. It's a route that goes from my home in Yonkers to NYC and back. It has paved paths, a dirt path, horses, a golf course, city...

You're quite right. The LePrees are from my two Leagues. Changing the hubs to a better vintage Japanese hub like an early DA would be the sensible thing to do. With shiny new SS spokes as well.

My 700x28c Continental Ultra 2000's finally deteriorated to the point they were unsafe to ride. I bought Panaracer Paselas but they are so...

Thanks for weighing in. It's important we look out for each others health and don't use the rationalist "brakeless, urban, hipster" issues to evaluate FG riding. What's acceptable for a 20 year old...

Man, these are beauties!!! Black bikes look so frickin' good when they are clean like these.

Do you do the restorations or are these in original condition?

Rip VanWinkel, here,

I just woke up from my nap and suddenly bicycles have "breaks" instead of "brakes". WTF? Has the Tea Party finally implemented their education plan? :50:
