    If its a foldable tire, I'd see if you could ride it, if you can, fold it back up and take on rides as a spare. Otherwise, trainer duty.

    If I were Mario Cipolini, I'd probably wear bike shorts wherever I went, regardless of my transportation. Alas, I look more like a hairless Ron Jeremy. I bought a pair of liner shorts for the same...

    Not to argue, but that's pretty much what happens at car lots every day. Could actually be easier replacing a car, if you're out in the middle of nowhere.

    Interesting replies on the thread. I suppose it's never ok to use common sense while driving. Just yesterday I rearended a car on my bike, after car came to a complete stop at a green light. I was...

    I'm just a big fatty that likes to blow up his 700x23's up as hard as possible. Too many pinch flats after giving up on mini-pump when tire was only semi-hard. CO2 cartridges are quite literally...

    What really bothers me about hit and run cases, is the driver basically leaving someone to die. I wonder how many times, someone has died in a hit and run, that could have been saved if the driver...

    People do crazy stupid stuff all the time. I wouldn't be suprised if it wasn't stolen. However, I wouldn't feel great about consummating the deal w/o some serious precautions.

    I think you probably need to mix things up a bit. Are you just commuting 80 miles per week, or are you putting in more volume? 90% HR seems high, but I wonder if it's more doable if you're just...
