    Not sure why Leisesturm thinks this would be a marriage breaker. My commute into center city philadelphia is 24.4 mi each way. Door to door time is only 10-20 minutes longer than taking the train. I...

    No, but why should the taxpayers of Hadley, Mass. be raped for $27, 500?

    I'm sure the lawyer "worked" for every penny of that settlement. No, wait, as FrenchFit sees it, the lawyer got screwed...

    I commuted for approx 3 years in the 80s. Didn't ride again until 2006 when I started commuting again. Didn't try my first group ride until 3 years ago. Approx 2/3 of my miles are commuting, the rest...

  6. Question about factoring in non-bike workouts to overall training program / balance

    Sorry if the title is confusing. Lately I've gotten a little bored / burned out with my usual cycling / fitness routine so I've started doing some swimming and tennis playing on some of my former...

    I, too, will take a crack at this. I commend you on you passion, drive, and, most of all, on getting out there and competing. While most of the people on this forum, I assume, have some track racing...

    Are you serious? People call 911 when McDonald's is out of Chicken McNuggets or when they temporarily lose their cable service or internet. This certainly warrants a call. Remember the "sales" pitch...

    I recently watched a cable show about human's capacity for attention. As a scientist, I felt the program was fairly objective. The premise being challenged was that some/many humans are good at...

  13. Help with converting Mu Uno to 451 wheel singlespeed/fixed (ie not coaster brake hub)

    Apologize if already addressed. Basically, my main question is does someone know where to buy a 20inch 451 wheel with a track style hub. I'm trying to avoid having to do a custom wheel build. I found...

    The potential motive of the thugs is more of an academic exercise. What really matters is the behavior of the thugs and for that, I hope they are severely punished.

    AFAIK, the cop's duty is to protect and serve and enforce the law. He does not have a duty to explain why he's doing what he's doing to any random citizen that asks. In fact, doing so takes him away...

    What a ******. Appears to me he rode along in the painted island for a little and then pulled a ubie to get to the cop. At a minimum (even if his cycling was perfectly legal) he's interfering with a...

    Good luck with that! Many of "us" do not pay their salaries (ie don't pay taxes - especially in california) and the rich pay a disproportionate share of their salaries. As a taxpayer who's paying a...

    I've proceeded through stop signs and red lights plenty of times with cops in the vicinity. I only come to a complete stop if I have to due to traffic. I'll slow down more than usual and look around...

    I couldn't resist. Average speed is not useless. In fact, average speed is ALL that matters, in a race. The person on the podium is the one with the highest average speed – period. This person may...
