    You do have options, but they are not convenient as the advertised roll on and roll off.

    I found out that Amtak does carry checked bags between Phildelphia and New York, but you won't find out by...

    I don't believe it either.
    I find when traffic is light, most motorists just pass. The complaints are most aggressive and profane in congested traffic, where they can't drive any faster than...

    Is Caltrans involved with offroad paths, or just on street facilities?

    The trails I've seen in PA (especially Chester Valley and others nearby, large parts of Schuylkill) are justified as...

    I'd say it was worth it - I haven't seen another post anywhere near this entertaining, and others enjoyed it too.
    The follow ups with the photograph and the conversation with the manufacturer were...

    If you haven't left already

    I spent my first week here staying near the Newark airport, and I'll confirm your comment that if you're not familiar with the route you're probably better off taking...

    If CPH is Copenhagen, I think you'll find the US is a different environment. When I bicycled to the Philadelphia airport, bicycle parking at the airport was difficult, but parking at train...

    I find when traffic is light with 40-45 limit (actual 50-60) with no shoulder motorists pass without incident. I've generally been pulled over in rush hour traffic (10-12 mph) or for using the left ...

    I don't presume to tell the Dutch what to do in the Netherlands; the relevant point for Americans is to realize that painting door zone bike lanes or even copying Dutch facilities here doesn't make...

    Are you glad the driver was ticketed for harassment, or do you think the cyclist should have received multiple tickets (he was cited for riding in the center of a narrow lane)? If you are glad the...

    Depending on one way streets, I'll often stop at red lights in the middle/left of the lane to let motorists go right on red. At some intersections this is appreciated, but there have been a few...

    Where do you live? Do they punish motorists for hitting pedestrians or bicyclists where you ride?

    I've yet to see these well designed junctions or bike lanes. Locally bike lanes go all they...

    I think you are over generalizing. While I would not want to ride a bicycle on the Washington Beltway (I-495; bumper to bumper at 70mph), locally there are many roads with 25mph speed limits...

    I'm not sure what behavior patterns you have in mind, but I would suggest all of the above - consequences of bad driving and uninformed journalists

    I have 2-3 Tourists, and they all seem to come with larger chainwheels (48T) and smaller sprockets (16T) than the Sports models. With the larger wheels, the Tourists come with incredibly high...

    I saw the specs for the folding bike (20" wheel, 48T sprocket, rear 14T-28T).

    This would put 6th gear at 68.5 gear inches (48T/14T x 20"), and 5th gear a little lower (60.0" for 16T cog in 5th)....

    I wouldn't hesitate to buy a ladies bike if the size fits you better. A few people may (or may not) give you a hard time but a bike that's too big is not good.
