    Going into a second week of no riding :( After a string of flats, I collided with a skateboarder, who was going the wrong way towards a red light. I approached an intersection, had a green, made...

    Last week, I got a flat tire on my morning commute. I was within walking distance from the office, so even though I was going to be late, I decided to walk the rest of the way. As I was heading...

    What's your point -- that it's her fault? The bicyclist struck her while she apparently was crossing the street legally. It's his fault. If those are the facts, there's no debate. The rest --...

    Normally I don't give my Brooklyn commute much thought. But this afternoon coming home, the air was cool and I just didn't want to rush home like usual. So I took a more pleasant and longer route,...

    Those are good points, but I don't think they work that well at speed. As you approach 15 or 20mph, the Manhattan avenue protected lanes become increasingly chaotic and the cyclist has to merge...

    This is a promo video, of course, but it's a shame that they lump all the different kinds of protected bike lanes into one category. I think there's a big difference in safety and viability...

    I think the main problem with this concept is steering geometry. Your rake angle appears to be 0 degrees. While there is trail, it's all coming from fork offset. I have a feeling this bike would...

    Would you buy one of those for your own personal use? One big difference between a rental bike and a personal use bike is that the former never needs to be carried up or down the stairs and instead...

    Interesting feedback, thanks folks. In my case, the camera takes 4 AA batteries and tends to get enough of a voltage drop after less than an hour of col temperature recording to begin cutting out. ...

    Minor update.

    I finished up the year with about a full week's worth of commute videos. I have not had any serious cause for pursuing complaints so far of those caught on video. I continue having...
