    After you get some use, I'd be interested in hearing how it compares to a jacket. Seems like it would breathe better, but also feel more awkward.

    Oh, and if you can afford one, go with Latex. Or at least go read up on it. It lasts significantly longer than springs do, isn't made from toxic petroleum products (like memory foam), and I...

    They're expensive yes, but consider you'll spend 1/4 - 1/3 of your life on it for the next 5 years or so. A bad one can do really bad things to your body too. Once I reached 30, I realized there...

    These are all taken with a Pentax K10D. While none of them were taken on a ride, every scene can be found on a well known cycling route here in the PNW.

    I also commute on a Poprad and have done a few 50-65 mile club rides. I have 32c Schwalbe Marathons on it, which I love. They make for a pillowy soft ride without the glass-attraction or buzz that...

    This is exactly the right explanation. A car driver trying to "shoot the gap", when faced with the scenario of a head on collision is more likely to come back into the lane & push the cyclist off...

    A couple of weeks ago I participated in my longest ride yet, of 45 fairly hilly miles. (I'm pretty much a newb to anything other than my 12 mile round trip commute).

    I was really concerned about...

    This argument really bothers me. Minuscule amounts of freedom should not be for sale.

    Ordinances like this are marketed as health & safety measures, but the reality is that they're probably a...

    I run those Vittorias on my commuter. They seem pretty good for the money, but I do miss my Schwalbe Marathons. I just don't get the same feeling of solid traction on the Vittorias, especially on...

    Ben Harper's "Beloved One" live, but I edited the crowd noise out of the beginning.

    We listened to Live From Mars a lot when we started dating, so it just felt right.

    Seattle weather is never too bad

    The nice thing about Seattle is that the bad weather isn't really all that bad. We'll probably have a single wind/thunderstorm in early-mid November, and besides that, a lot of drizzle with lows in...
