    Bike New York has been a charitable non-profit since it was created 15 years ago and the website always said it was a charity. The big stink with NYPD was they wanted to be reimbursed for security...

    Check the latest comments on the blog entry. It's not promising. If you really want the latest info, best bet would be to email them. Calling them would probably just get someone who doesn't know...

    Exactly the reason I want to do it. There's just an incomparable feeling one gets from being able to ride (or walk) down the middle of the street without having to worry about being run over by two...

    Yeah, I thought the exorbitant fee could be a cause but forgot to mention it. But since I've never ridden it before and many say you should do it at least once in your life, I may bite the bullet...

    Five Boro Bike Tour 2015

    So who's doing the 5BBT this year? Looks to me like registration is slower than other years. Five days in and they're still not full. Big difference from recent years when they would fill up after...

    The more rounded urban style ones aren't as bad, like the Bell Adrenaline. I wish the Hövding airbag helmet wasn't so expensive. Get it under $100 and I'd bite. Oh for the chance to feel the wind...

    I guess fat bikes are a little like that. Not big in the mainstream yet, and I doubt it will ever develop an emphasis on speed. Just getting out and riding. Doubt I'll ever get one myself, though....

    I'm not so sure. In that old pic, I couldn't even really make out sidewalks, and parking was rather haphazard. Now according to Street View, sidewalks have pretty planting strips along the curb with...

    Crested Butte and mountain biking

    Pulled an old issue of Bicycle Sport magazine from my shelf and it really makes me feel like an old fogey. January 1984 issue, bought just over 31 years ago. Too bad the title was short-lived. It was...

    A little late, but to counter a bunch of misconceptions:

    The N360 uses standard 9-spline cogs, not a screw-on freewheel.

    The Nuvinci is designed for 3/32" cog and chain. The manual actually...

    Rhinodillos claims they've recently licked that problem by putting silicone Soft-Tips on the ends of their liners so there's no sharp edge to cut through tubes. Don't know if that actually works,...

    Thanks for the info. I don't care that it's not in its best shape ever. I remember it from decades ago, when much of the city was a dump, so it can't be any worse. I just wasn't sure if Flushing was...

    Flushing Meadows Corona Park

    It's been ages since I've been there. Hoping to visit the next time I'm in the city. Anyone know if bicycling is allowed on the paths and the promenade, or are those just for pedestrians?

    32 hole rim

    Anybody know a good source for an inexpensive 32 hole rim? 36 is easy to find, but very few 32s seem to be made for 406 anymore. I've got a 32h Sun Rhyno Lite from a while back, but need a second rim...

    Kind of hard to take an "authoritative" article seriously when they misspell paraffin repeatedly. Also hard to take the lab results at face value when they come from a "lab" that wants to sell you...

    You didn't say what kind of lock you have. Your post implies you want something similar to that Abus bracket but that you may not actually have an Abus lock, which that won't work with.

    If you'll be buying anything else from Nashbar, their house-brand cables are reportedly rebranded Jagwires and a lot cheaper. Reviewers seem to like it:

    I'm starting to get the impression that even comfort/city bikes might not be safe. Noticed that Schwalbe did make a production run of their Big Ben model in 650b x 2.0 and it sold out at every online...

    Another bad assumption. I'm already at the smallest chainring size available for my bolt circle diameter. Or are you suggesting it would be somehow "cheaper" for me to replace the crank in addition...

    No, the OP also said that "When it is upside down, I can spin the back wheel and it keeps going on its own for a looong long time." If the brake was rubbing, it wouldn't do that. Definitely sounds...

    I'd go further and say with an attitude like that, he should stop bicycling completely. He's a grade A menace on the roads.

    Thanks again, Charlie. Yeah, that's a good thing about derailleurs - Shimano makes them with quality build. The cheap tensioners get so many complaints about springs and whatnot breaking. I've never...
