    The real child in this situation is someone who has to be warned before being passed on the open road.

    This is as stupid as people who get all worked up about whether a rider waves or not.

    19 sucks but the way the roads are around here, if you want to get north or south of it, you are probably going to ride on it for at least a mile. In that spot, most motorists seem to be familiar...

    I see you rode on 78... drivers do not like seeing cyclists on this road. I avoid it, and only ride it in short stretches to get from place to place. Not that you did anything wrong... because you...

    It's possible this had nothing to do with her age, but I have to say it: why is it that drivers are only tested one time: when they receive their license? They should be retested at intervals,...

    I weigh just under 150 but I'm tall and the wind catches my front wheel often. When I'm descending or drafting at high speed, a crosswind will put me a quite a tilt. I use cheap wheels with regular...

    Wow, riding around a stopped car at a stop sign is just completely idiotic.

    I've made my share of bone-headed moves. I'm sure you learned your lesson.

    Bibs for tall skinny people

    Sorry if this is a rehash, the search didn't turn up much for me.

    I'm 6'2, 145 lbs and have a 30 inch waist. Ie absurdly skinny.

    I love the Specialized bibs I use now (comps, I believe), but...

    I would recommend a bit of lube on the spring in the RD as well.

    I use a dry wax lube. I don't remember the brand unfortunately, and I'm wasting time at work so I can't check.

    I ride between 10pm - midnight on weekdays.

    Weekends, I get up very early to ride. Then I come home and make sure that my wife can get some time to herself if she wants it.
