    Just bumping to say THANKS! I sprayed WD-40 and then dry lube into the keyhole and it didn't help. Finally I did the same thing to holes where the "U" connects to the lock, and it popped out easily.

    Strapping in leather shoes

    Hey everyone,

    I ride a fixed gear (with brakes) all day every day: to the grocery store, to my friends' house, for joy rides and for the occasional long commute. However, I've recently bought some...

    So I wasted way too long trying to respond to anything in the overblown debate in this thread, but I'm giving up. The above post from the first page is a good representation of how over-thought this...

    I roll through red lights not always, but very often. I'm being careful, and I don't want to unclip. In a long street with a lot of lights, I always think about how much further the cars can go...

    Update on the police report? You should really file one. If you find that guy, and there's no police report, what are you going to do?

    Sometimes I spend miles on the defensive against dangerous drivers, and I don't feel happy... I mean I feel great to be riding, but I hate everyone on the road.

    This is sometimes. I don't think of...

    What's the point of the "proper" hand signal system when most people don't know it??? Either way, the right arm outstretched is a clear signal that only willfully ignorant drivers won't understand....

    Haha, in that case I'm a rider and not a builder, but I don't think the two are mutually exclusive.

    Clearly, you should be riding on the road.

    One problem is that some people in cars don't want you on the road, and think you should always be on an MUP. Don't believe them. They're do*ches.

    I usually don't consider people stopped on the side of the road, even if they look like they're trying to repair something. Then again, I live in a pretty urban area. Next time, though, I'll stop. :)

    My Japanesei Pista is steel, and is quite different from the American models. I think it's cool that Bianchi makes different bikes in different places.
