    Need more info. Length of commute. Degree of exertion. IMO a car coat is going to be a beast to manage on a bicycle. My Gore Phantom cycling jacket is tailored for Europeans that are taller and...

    Subjective at best. I'm a 42cm guy as well. 38 feels small, 42 feels fine but I have a 44 on the tandem for the leverage. Would use a 46 there, if I could find one. Relaxed isn't the word I would use...

    The disrespect being shown to cable locks in this and other threads is unwarranted. As an earlier poster did state, ones location should be taken into consideration. Personally I think the On-Guard...

    On the West Coast mothers with a mission like yours find a used mixte or step through from a co-op or on Craig's (~$150 - ~250) and add an X-tracycle kit ($300+). They ship well across the...

    Saddle makers don't mind that much if you only ride a $90 saddle four times. I am going to go waaaay out on a very long limb and say that it cannot be as much of a crap shoot to buy a functional...

    You've already justified the cost. Now you just need to pick a bike. Very generally, the more expensive the bike, the lighter it is. In your price range a Specialized Sirrus is worth a look. Trek FX...

    I don't know of a single grocery chain that does not tow cars that are parked longer than 45min to 1hour or have been left unattended by non-shoppers (they watch). A mall complex with many stores...

    Indeed. The front track on that thing is so narrow I find it hard to imagine it doesn't require the same amount of balancing ability as a standard single track bike. Maybe more.

    Of course it did. But grabbing a double handful of brake accomplishes the same goal and does not disturb the peace. Since you probably did brake hard to avert disaster... why blow the horn? The...

    Have you ever been to Portland? You wouldn't be asking me what I mean, if so. A shop like the Hub wouldn't have been impacted by CityBike. And a program like CityBike would die a quick death in...

    I used to go to Gotham Bikes on West Broadway because it was next door to my office building. I got my first folder from them. I got my other bikes on 14th St. I went to Stuyvesant HS back in the...

    And you won't ever have to. BB's are plug and play affairs these days. Pick your price point (~$14 and up) screw in the fixed cup, screw in the adjustable cup and you won't even get your fingers...

    Except for keeping gas in the tank. My first car sat outside in a backyard for at least 10 years and started right up when I got it from the seller. I know because he was my neighbor and I had lusted...

    Why on earth would you assume this? To do so shows that you don't get why the law was passed in the first place. Hmmmm. Given the evidence (experience) of others in your situation I would think...

    There is no guarantee your oldest son will want to drive his siblings, or even himself, anywhere in a few years, and quite a bit of anecdotal evidence to the fact that he might not. You want to have...

    Says the man who is openly contemptuous of the way 90% of the cycling public rides. What is upsetting you is that I have a point and you can't stand that. So sorry for you. But I am not attacking you...

    Why do you think you need a different stem? Or bars for that matter? FWIW, I don't think new cables or housings will be required... unless you damage the present ones in the swap. This is easier done...

    The real straw man is that this was ever about safety. Multiple posts in this very thread allude to horn use as "punishment" which is exactly as I suspected.
