    I'm sure someone will be riding your bike, barring an accident, in 20-30 years. Trading in your bike every several years is pretty cost-effective and keeps the used bike market alive too. Resale on...

    I got a 55. I was born in 1953.

    Maybe I should have told them about my piercings. When I grew up all piercings, tats and the # of texts per day was data you kept to yourself.

    Yes, you are right, My figures as it turns out are for the number of same-sex households in the US.

    Last time I did this in the night, I was able to flip the cape to stay on the back of the light. But...

    There are also many people living in NYC who aren't in high poverty and who don't own a car... largely because a car is an albatross in high density areas. I assume that 9% of the estimated 776,000...

    I don't have any statistics on happiness.
    However, the statistic I quoted was for households, so guessing that would not cover nursing homes or hospitals. An individual who moved in with a family...

    I find a baseball or cycling cap under the helmet does a much better job than the helmet visor. When it rains hard, rain sneaks behind the visor attachment to the helmet. It flows fast enough...

    Have you ever noticed how big frame bicycles often seem to have bent forks? I think it's an optical illusion.

    Some of these models came with alloy wheels, but even then it was a 29 lb bike. So you could end up spending a bunch of money and getting a bike that weighed 26 or 27 pounds.

    I haven't hooked up my kiddy trailer more than about twice in 2014. Odd because the weekly or even twice-weekly trailer runs were part of my routine.

    Instead I just run 2 panniers down to the...
