    Don't think I could get away with lying anyway. Once a year my wife does an inventory for insurance replacement anyway. The bikes are listed at cost. The Tarmac was a build from frame up and she...

    Didn't some city ban bikes in town in Colorado at one time? I remember reading some other cities had looked into it as well. I believe it took a few years to overturn the ban in Colorado.l

    A lot of this sounds like rationalization for riding on the sidewalk. Not many pedestrians on so we will just take to the side walk. I guess it would be ok for motorcycles and scooters to do the...

    And the the ten year stall in climate change. Real science like geology tells us we have been through such fluctuations before. And that was well before the Industrial Age. If climate science is so...

    What is embarrassing is the infatic statement that there is "no science" to deny global warming and then disagree with all sources other than known global warming supporters. You do know the public...

    No problem for me. It is against the law in my area(Prohibited in my community) and I would even point out offenders to traffic cops when I see them. We do have the three foot law and if a street...

    I have bib shorts that I bought five years ago when I weighed 240 I am now down to 170. If washing them in the machine would shrink them I would wash them in hot water and dry them by machine as...

    Support in word or in deed? Do the supporters walk the walk, use cloth bags, take public transportation, not buy goods produced by child labor, not drive with just one in a car? No they will let...

    Look at that, we agree again. Once or twice every year isn't bad. Socially, if not actually, being an environmentalist means you are against motorcycle races from Barstow to Vegas. You oppose the...

    If I might interject once more it is the concept of "back lash" that causes the debate. To a degree it is hubris to assume there is a back lash when one small person or group of people are trying to...

    Sure they do. And at least in my area the old central city dwellers are now commuting to the burbs for work. It is almost always less expensive to build a building for manufacturing or warehousing...

    If you are including suburbs and Exurban areas then I agree. That leaves Rural and everything else is Urban. To me the Suburbs are a necessary relief valve to the central core of most Mega Cities. ...

    I do understand I was there. I commuted to work on an old Schwinn Varsity 5 days a week and then joined friends for weekend rides with the family. Cycling was seen as clean, healthy and heaven...
