  4. That Lever on the Brakes You Use to Take Off Your Wheel?

    Mine isn't working. When I lift it, it kinks the brake cable and just makes it tighter. I think it's gunked up. There is a small allen screw in the center of it. I think I should try to loosen that...

    I think a couple of things are happening here. The cyclists "appear" to be running red lights at speed, when in fact they are checking and the observer just doesn't see that. Secondly, the percentage...

    This is the scenario that I know is simply not true, or at least statistically insignificant. Cyclists do not ride, at speed, approach an intersection, and continue through a red light "as if it...

    The public's perception of us will be the same irrespective of our behavior. Even is we followed every regulation to a "T", it would still be the same.

    My area threatened "red light cameras", but bowed to public sentiment against it. They raised issues of fairness and safety as well as how the technology would be paid for.

    I had an encounter with two dogs when I first started riding. They came at me from an angle and I ended up wiping out a little on the gravel shoulder. I was angry because it was a new bike. The owner...

    I don't mean to change the subject. A motorcyclist friend hit a dog and crashed. The owners came out and beat him as he lay injured. Is there any requirement to stop after hitting a dog. A driver can...
