    Agree on stretchy jeans. Many sold in Europe are stretch and increasingly more in the U.S. You can order most Levi's to be made in stretch fabric. I wear 511 or 513's Levi's 511 - Shop Slim Fit Jeans...

    My guess would be that cars legally have ROW unless someone is already in the crossing. EG, if you are approaching the crossing then cars have ROW. You have ROW once you have entered the crossing if...

    This is not a problem in NL or elsewhere. What can be done differently so that you don't endanger bicycle riders?

    @acidfast7, Germany? Yep, not a fan of a lot of German infrastructure. Fortunately newer stuff does seem to be much better?

    Motor traffic (and road debris) violating painted bike lanes is a...

    Why do you need special clothes? I've commuted for years with normal clothes. About 80% of the population of The Netherlands rides somewhere every day in normal clothes (yes, work commute mode share...

    Regardless of fault, you are 6 to 9 times as likely to be killed riding a bicycle in the U.S. as you are in The Netherlands and in the U.S. 2 to 5 times as likely to be killed riding a bicycle as...

    Congrats on the bike.

    Tires should last at least 5 to 10 years on a city bike. You may want to look at Schwalbe Marathons. A bit more up front but cheaper in the long run and much less hassle...

    I'm a start in second ride in third kind of guy. One time going up the Brooklyn bridge I had to stop for a gaggle of people in the bike lane and quickly switched to first to get going again....

    OP, what is the make & model of your saddle? Two things I can think of; 1) wrong saddle, 2) saddle is too high. I've never had a problem with abnormal wear on an upright city bike. Same goes for...

    This is a excellent and critical point. Chicago, NYC, and WDC along with many other cities have seen dramatic changes in the past 4 or 5 years. I wouldn't have dared ride in NYC 5 years ago but have...

    I'd think it depends on your tolerance for future problems vs spending money. I'd buy a new tire though I think a lot of folks I know would patch it. My biggest concern would be the flap of rubber on...

    I don't miss snow (and shoveling). :-) Y'all had it pretty easy the last few weeks didn't you? Funny it snowed on the first day of spring.

    Agree. This is also what has worked well for The Netherlands.

    That's interesting. We have Nexus 3's, 8's, and N360's which all seem the same in freezing as warmer weather. I wonder if it's just that your Alfine is a lot better than these in warmer weather?

    Not wrong, but also not supporting the things that I want for me, my family, and friends like protected cycletracks that I and others are comfortable riding on and having our kids and one day our...

    Perhaps. Should they say what they stand for though? If my interest is in safe paths and riding to the grocery or my kids riding to school rather than a sweatfest in lycra then they don't appear to...

    Very true. It's interesting how different what the website says about them is apparently from reality. If I'm a parent with children who I want to be able to ride to school the website tells me that...

    Rather confused by your troll comment. As to comparison with the Great Britain website, why will you never do enough? Why can you not do what they're doing?

    Thanks. Finally found it. Doesn't appear to be much of a priority.

    What are these people doing on these committees? Are they fighting to get well designed protected infrastructure that will serve everyone from 8 to 80 or are they making sure that infrastructure is...

    I think classes are of limited use. Not bad, but they don't really change anything for the better. Kind of like saying we're not going to fix a leaky pipe above your desk but we'll educate you on how...

    Here's an example of an organization who are clearly fighting for better and safer facilities: Cycling Embassy of Great Britain | Making riding a bike as easy as riding a bike.

    Let's start with the dichotomy in your first two sentences. LCI's teach vehicular cycling. For the most part that is not so bad except where they tell children to never ride on sidewalks.

    Your...

    It's more what's not there than what is. A quick glance through the site gave me no indication that they support any kind of protected infrastructure. Just now, digging in a bit more I did find some...
