    I would have ridden about the same, but I would have ridden in the middle of the right lane. Many cars did dangerously close passes because the cyclist left room, encouraging close passes.

    So are we all in agreement yet on how many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

    Its all about the bling factor. Roadies want the newest, hottest. I remember a few years ago when a couple of guys in the group I rode with got Catlike helmets, which weren't sold in the US at the...

    When I rode motorcycles (before I got hit head on by an SUV) I had the nastiest brightest light bulbs I could find and I always rode during the day with the brights on. Its the deer in the...

    How do you conclude the cyclist was more at fault? The cyclist had the right of way, the turning car had to yield the right of way, which he did not do, end of liability discussion.

    I dont see why is shows courtesy to change from side by side to single file when a car approaches from the back. If the lane is substandard, the car should be passing by going int the oncoming lane...

    If The lane width is substandard, in other words, not wide enough for a car to pass at least three feet from the cyclist, then ONE xcyclist can take the lane, so why shoudn't 2 cyclist ride side by...

    I just slow down and pass at a walking pace. I almost hit a kid the other day. I had to swerve all the way across the lane but the little bugger was still able to get away.

    Many years ago I was riding out in the countryside, going up a hill, when a farm dog came after me. I couldn't out race him up the hill so I pepper sprayed him, which stopped him but he stayed in...

    Drink water BEFORE the ride till your pee runs clear, then drink on the ride regularly before you feel thirsty.

    If the seat is a lot higher than the bars, then your torso could be too low which could cause neck pain from craning your neck up. Also, if the seat is too far forward, then you could have too much...

    I guarantee you I can get that off with a vice grip, or a tool they sell for removing locking bolts on auto wheels, in less than 5 seconds.

    Not saying its worthless, it will definitely deter a...

    Get a hub with NDS offset that is less, that is, closer to the offset of the DS, Then the spoke tension will be closer DS to NDS

    I always top up before a ride, but back in the dark ages when many pumps didn't have guages, like silca frame bumps, we used a very complicated but readily available instrument:

    Back to cottered cranks. When you reassemble, be sure to grease the cotter and the spindle flats. The cotter will never come loose when riding and the next time you take it apart, the cotter will...

    More anecdotal evidence. Sew ups are safer when they go flat. A buddy of mine flatted the rear during a race, had to go a couple of laps flat, was in the final sprint and placed.

    Um, no. Once the cogs start to skip you ruined the cassette. You can't use that wheel in another bike or use a wheel with a good cassette on your bike. By checking chain elongation regularly, my...
