I got smacked by a buick this past fall, and the only thing that prevented me from a much more severe hit was accelerating. As it happened she (old lady on a cell phone) still hit my rear axel square...

So Sheba, all you have to do is finish that second bag and you're making the trip down to Milwaukee, right? You could even stop in Mad town to visit Zagozen on the way. Hell, I'd even meet you in...

I use Kenda Klondikes and Im really happy with them. They're 700x35mm with carbide studs. I have yet to go down this year, and I'm in Milwaukee. We're getting dumped on almost daily and the kendas...

I think there are a lot more in Milwaukee this summer as opposed to last summer, even. People have been really friendly to me on the road, too. They talk to me and ask questions when I'm a stop...

Yeah, I'm really glad you're okay. You must be tough as nails (and lucky!) to take a hit like that and come out as well as you did. Here's hoping for a high estimate on your bike, too!

Ride into work was nice today. Mid 60's, clear, polite traffic, made decent time (for me). I was really strong on the biggest hill of the commute (right at the end, of course), so I was pretty happy....

As my everyday type beer, I'll go with Leinenkugels everytime. As far as pretty basic german style lagers go, it's great. Plus I grew up seven miles from the brewery and went to school with the...

I just put a rear rack on my schwinn fixie (the now commuter) and it's been such an improvement over wearing my backpack. I'm going to snag a set of panniers soon, so that should save me a little...

Very cool. I'm glad there are a decent number of people bike commuting. I'm the only one at my office (so far), so maybe I can set a good example. I've been getting really sick of my car, too, even...

I've been vegan since before I got into biking and haven't had any problems. I keep up just fine and recovery after hard rides hasn't been an issue, either.

Eating vegan is pretty cheap if you...

I love the escrima sticks, Siu. I'd let you guard my house anytime. You and Sprocket would make a great team. He's really more of an alarm system, anyway.

I like doing my grocery shopping with my bike and my backpacking bag. It's a 4700 cu in bag, so I can get away with a lot. Those forty pound bags of dogfood are killers, though. I just put a rear...

Sorry botto. I must have been confused. I thought we were playing the "let's insinuate things about people we don't know" game.

Or maybe we're still playing it. Hmm.

Post pics of this dog. Maybe she would have been a great sprockette. I have an ex who's dog looks just like sprocket from Fraggle Rock. It was weird when I first saw a pic of her (the dog).

He's half chow chow so he's soft like a teddy bear. He makes a great pillow, too.
