Hey, this is Isis....

For the record, credit...

Haw, I asked them to look at a hop in my front rim and they said the problem was my brake pads.

Welcome, welcome. The best thing about this phair city of brotherly philth is the biking scene, says me. Just watch out for the potholes, which have been known to swallow young garbage trucks.

Exactly. I probably break a dozen traffic laws a day, and the cops just wave and smile.

As long as I can go faster than cars, I'm happy.

I do a ten mile loop nearly every day, and pass a lot of road bikes-- but that's probably because I'm really pounding along and they're not. The...

You just get used to overlap. I have a tiny little track frame and 700cs and just learned to lean more when doing tight turns at low speeds. I can't imagine a small frame with standard wheels and no...

*Sigh* I hate that a band, a comic, a bike part, a river, etc. stole my name. Every time someone mentions an ISIS bb I think they're referring to me. Oh, well.

So far as I know it's a fine...

Wait, there's a track in Philadelphia? Where? I've been wanting to try riding one for AGES.

Brake. I value my pretty face. I'm also paranoid about my chain exploding, after watching someone else's do just that.

I don't generally lose it, but then people are pretty good about bikes in Phila. If someone does cut too close/talk trash at me I generally fold their side mirror back and ride like hell. It doesn't...

I used to ride my father's old track bike when I was just getting into fixed-- he's 6'0 and I'm 5'6". It never really bothered me. Sometimes getting on was a bit awkward, but I got used to it. When I...

Oh honestly, it's not that hard. If you like fixed, learn on fixed. And it doesn't really translate anyway. Worst that happens is you go over at low speed a few times and look silly.

That is the most freakin' sexist bike video I've seen in ages. So the guy gets to run lights and look cool and the woman can barely drag the cranks round in those stupid heels? Please.

Mine does! We bike round the halls all the time. Two points for taking down a freshman, three for a sophomore. Profs don't count.

If I'm going to be drinking, I take my tipsy bike-- ten speed with cruiser bars. It's a lot harder to crash than my fixie. Last time I rode THAT one drunk, I found myself racing some friends (who...

Could be your seat is tilted too far and you're sliding forward with your weight on your arms? That happened to me, and I straightened it out-- no more pain.

Cool! Welcome. Glad you didn't do a faceplant first time out, like some people ahem-me-ahem who launched themselves off while trying to coast.

Damn, someone *noticed*? I'd be flattered. Usually people are too busy being affronted that something other than a car is in the road to notice what it *is*, beside a non-car.

Hello, fellow lady cyclist!
Yeh, I'd say you might want to bring down the gear ratio. I have 14/49 and skidding is damned hard (but I can go damned fast!)
