I agree. Work well in all weather conditions, low maintenance. Been using them daily for 15 years.

You are overthinking this thing. Just get on your bike and try it. Four miles is in the "sweet spot" for cycling, within which it is easier, faster, and less hassle than driving, walking, or public...

I've had the same car for 31 years, the same airplane for 30 years, and the same house for 23 years. If something works and is optimal for the job, why replace it? I've had my primary bike for 15...

Neos overshoes. They slip on and off my dress shoes in seconds and are waterproof.

Definitely neither. I've never been able to think of cycling as a sport. I also think that operating any sort of machine on public roads requires a more serious attitude than "pastime."

I never understood this drive-through idea. When I go to a restaurant, I expect to sit down.

Lately, I'm drinking Dogfish Head's Palo Santo Marron. Another favorite is Boulevard Brewing Company's The Sixth Glass.

I'm not anti-car -- I just think of cars mostly in terms of recreation and sport. Bicycles, on the other hand, are practical, primary, transportation. I've flet this way for about 40 years.

I'm 69. Once I'm finally forced to retire, I won't have any need to commute, so my riding will drop drastically.

I can't help be amazed that it takes me exactly twice as long to travel the same distance at what seems to me a natural, normal pace. I could, of course, go faster, but it would feel unnatural and be...

Rim brake pads wear out and have to be changed. When I used rim brakes, a set was good for a month during the winter. Snow got in and inhibited braking. Once the rims wear out, it's $500 to build my...
