    I strongly agree that this is what is happening. "some words LEFT" is just a bad passing phrase, it should never have been adopted.

    The trouble is that in nearly all other situations, when a...

    my commuter bike has 700s' and I feel they are a little big. As far as switching to MTB rims and running slicks, I sometimes consider it; but it would be a lot of work. I really think that for...

    Don't worry, you did the right thing. Suspension isn't necessary. The basic safety bike is over one hundred years old and for only a few of those years has suspension even been a consideration. You...

    Oh, come on!

    This is part of why cyclists cannot be taken seriously. They keep spouting nonsense. 15-18 average . . . not even close to real numbers.

    I am only using the free features of Map My Ride. I...
