    Thought I'd post some follow up pics. It has been snowing nearly non-stop since Monday. Thursday morning I awoke to find that another big storm had dumped another foot or so overnight on top of the...

    Of course I was kidding. And I wasn't talking about a ***, but rather a small portable automatic weapon that makes a fashion statement at the same time. :P

    I hate to break-up the Brooks lovefest, but I have to say that the B17 did not work for me. After more than a thousand miles and 6 months I finally gave up on it. I just couldn't get the tilt to work...

    Snowy and chilly (28F when I left). Received about an inch of snow overnight. Was a tad bit icy this morning on the way in. Rode in the lane as the bike lane was a mess. Otherwise not a problem, even...

    I don't save time, but my short 2.5mi commute takes me the same by bike as by car.

    When I was a student and lived on campus I always saved time riding due to the layout of the campus and all the...

    I'd consider reporting it if for no other reason than to have some sort of paper trail of this person's behavior. And you certainly didn't cause him to hate cyclists, he already did.

    I can tell you why I didn't. Basically I knew I wanted brifters and preferred disc brakes. I went with the Trek Portland and am very pleased. But that's me... If the Portland didn't exist, I would...

    I have the Logo and a Tailrider. I've had some problems with the narrow top. It is a bit tricky to get the thing centered, and if it isn't centered perfectly, it will tend to sag to one side. Also,...

    "Parents suck..." No ****? Just be thankful you are not one. Logic has no business in parental decision making (aka hyper-worrying).

    Also, well thought-out persuasive arguments are useless. No one...

    As for the route, I'd say just try it out and see which you prefer. I tend to prefer side roads as I can deal with folks backing out without looking pretty easily. On the down side dealing with stop...
