    I didn't really encourage anyone to buy me bike stuff this year. My MIL has a tendency to shop around for something similar to what I've asked for but which seems more thoughtful to her. That's kind...

    I'm done for the year. My last two possible cycling days were spent on family business out of state. I will probably be cycling later this week but for now I've left the wife alone with the baby for...

    This may sound strange but for me there's an emotional component to leaving stuff in the office that has to do with feeling secure in my career and my employment. I think I'll still have a job next...

    Only Uber is forced out and taxis take up the slack that was clearly there to allow Uber in.

    IE, the average person probably doesn't care that hard if their taxi driver has a record, number of...

    To be fair, many of the regulations they are flaunting were implemented for the express purpose of protecting the taxi guild. This was brewing for a while before Uber, as town cars cut into taxi...

    How do you figure? There's only one cassette socket and it works reliably, there are hundreds of freewheel removers and half of them break the freewheel as often as they work. You can take the...

    I'm still hung up on the road bike thing. Just read this statistic... Road bikes from the 1960's and earlier are rare indeed, from the 70's they are common. This adds collectibility but I don't think...
