    Clifford's chart indicates far smaller percentages for hit-from-behind: under 9% of all reported crashes and about 14% of the serious/fatal ones and that's more consistent with other figures I've...

    I share your skepticism. Frankly the only parking plan that I could see substantially increasing mode share for cycling and transit would be one that drastically cuts available car parking and makes...

    My 1990 Cannondale has over 130,000 miles and hasn't had all that many components replaced. Certainly quite a few tires, some chains and cassettes, and some cables plus brake pads. But I regard...

    1) 10 mph is considerably faster than 6 mph.
    2) Almost everyone that I see jogging at even 6 mph has wisely chosen to do so in the street instead of on the sidewalk.

    That strikes me as an unlikely assumption. In most residential suburbs the sidewalks have driveways at every residence - in ours about a third of the total sidewalk space consists of wide driveway...

    That was my concern as well. Not a problem on my own bikes, but when our club does our supported ride I provide SAG support and end up putting tubes in lots of different rims and some have pretty...

    According to http://www.house.leg.state.mn.us/hrd/pubs/ss/ssspdlt.pdf
    "On a residential roadway, local authorities can reduce the speed limit to 25 mph." and to 15 mph in school zones.

    Good to...

    Page 67 shows exactly the same road type as is explained in more detail and with instruction on page 71. Both are showing a two-lane road (one lane in each direction) but with the single lane...

    The diagrams I see (such as on page 71) actually show only one lane in each direction (i.e. a two-lane road), but with the single lane divided into thirds to indicate different riding positions. ...

    Doesn't sound nutty to me either. The only child cyclist fatality that I can remember in our town was specifically a result of the opposite instruction given here - i.e. for those 12 and under to...

    I don't use one and have found the floors of my tents still last as long as the other parts so a ground sheet just seems like unnecessary weight and bulk. I figure that even if I do eventually get a...

    The only advice I have is to try different tires to see if there's one that you can safely be run at the pressure you like, learn to live with a reduced pressure, or rebuild the wheels with hooked...

    Making it mandatory discourages short utility rides such as to a neighborhood store since it's one more thing you have to find and put on before hopping on your bike and then you have to do something...

    I agree with most of what Carbonfiberboy wrote, but dextrose and glucose are synonyms that normally refer to the 'D' type of this 6 carbon sugar while the 'L' type is the mirror image form which is...

    Loop detectors work by creating currents in nearby metal objects and this is most effective if the objects form some type of loop for the current to flow. On most bicycles the most effective parts...

    Clearance for full fenders would certainly be an issue. But I have a similar Cannondale and use a rear rack on it which at least keeps spray from the rear tire off of me and I use one of the small...

    I agree with FB that derailleur pulleys are rarely a problem. The only ones I replaced on my bikes were as a result of cracks, not worn down teeth - and when I've seen some with worn teeth it was as...

    I still have those pads on our tandem. Are there any reports of these actually coming apart or is this just a concern due to age?

    I've found it to be handy for quick fabric repairs (panniers or clothes) and as a tire boot. In fact there's been some inside the rear tire of my touring bike for the last few thousand miles after a...

    I'll echo the comments in favor of a smaller camera. I carry mine in a little Bento-type box on the top tube so it's very easy to grab it for impromptu shots while riding. Think I'd miss a lot of...

    I don't think anyone in this thread has actually said that - and if they did they were wrong. FB correctly said that the output torque at constant speed will be determined by the slope of the climb...

    I'll take that bet. That whole section (CVC 23123.5) was only written in response to having texting cellphones so the exemption in subsection 23123.5e could not have preceded their existence.

    No, as I had already stated in the post to which you replied:
    "Now the pro rider will certainly be putting out more power since this involves the product of the torque and the speed at which the...
