    There are some tables around that claim to be pretty definitive, but it will also depend very strongly on the condition of your roads and your particular riding style. Someone who chooses (and has...

    Do you have a trailer? I'd use the one that I got with my Bike Friday. Normally it carries the suitcase which in turn can contain the bike and trailer parts for airline travel. But for utility...

    Guess I fail to see how safety is improved by having even more drivers staring at an image on their phone instead of paying attention only to the view of the street visible through their windshield...

    Agreed. What I find particularly objectionable is when cities erect "No Pedestrian Crossing" signs and barricades blocking one of the sides of an intersection. A pedestrian who wants to go from the...

    No, the insurance premium is based on the probable losses the company expects to see in the future from that driver plus some expected profit. Just because a given driver had a $100K loss once...

    Looks nicely thought out. I remember when Bicycling! first ran an article on the Bike Friday with its trailer/suitcase for self-contained travel, including to/from the airport. It got me interested...

    Thought you said you had already hit the $40/month limit.
    I got credit for rides through 4/20, but not for the ride this morning. Cashed in my $25 credit for some tubes and a different style tire...

    Yes, I think it's mainly the 'free gear' option that made this offer too good to last. If they had just offered a decent percentage discount it would have been more sustainable and could still have...

    I'd say that's within the normal range of wear, especially since you do a significant amount of riding in the rain. Brake wear is going to vary enormously depending on conditions - someone who only...

    Depends very much on conditions. Dry weather here and my new chain & cassette have 520 miles so far and since it feels smooth and isn't making any noise I'll still wait a while before adding any...

    One of the levers on my tandem is designed to pull two cables simultaneously which makes it easy to install a third brake on the bike. But I would never consider using that lever to control both...

    I haven't seen any such glitches yet. There is certainly a delay. After I enter a ride in Strava it usually takes a few hours for it to show up as a "New Activity" at the Competitive Cyclist site...

    Looks good, and quite similar to the Bike Friday concept. I like the bright colors and have an additional suggestion. On my first trip with my Bike Friday I was running later than expected getting...

    Usually a 1989 Cannondale. But all the power is from gravity and the wind - I just get in a good tuck and then sit up when I reach the sign so it senses me.

    There's one nice straight downhill stretch just a few miles from home with a radar speed sign that flashes "Slow Down" if you hit 50 mph. So of course I try to make it flash and can do so if there's...

    Not that it would be politically feasible, but various measures would decrease the convenience and increase the cost of driving to where bicycling would be more attractive to that portion of the...

    Or they're being sensibly cautious. I'm sure they've been seeing lots of people signing up and the potential credit $$ keep growing. Someone at the company is sure to question how much this might...

    Yes, some people choose to switch to just night-time riding through there if the weather is particularly hot. Not much traffic on Hwy. 50 (America's loneliest highway), so with reasonable lighting...

    Yes, that appears to be the case. My grocery store rides that are a little over 30 minutes riding time each are not getting any store credit. Shouldn't matter since I'll hit the $40/month limit...

    I'd just try to leave plenty of space open toward the bottom of the cover for ventilation so you don't end up trapping moisture that would otherwise evaporate during the day.

    Yes, the terminology has changed. In the '60s and '70s bikes were referred to by the total number of gear combinations - so one with 5 cogs in the back and two chain rings was a "10 speed" bike...

    The ratcheting barcons I've used have rather small steps between clicks of the ratchet and only have steps at all in one direction. So it's still possible to fine adjust the position of the lever...

    I live in a dry climate which greatly reduces brake wear on rims but I still find that most of my rim failures, incl. the three most recent ones, have been a result of the brake track wearing out. ...

    They should *very lightly* touch the tire, and both should face forward (the rear one goes on the back side of the brake bridge and the front one sits under the brake). You can bend the wire piece...
