    Perhaps you should start riding a $200 3-speed beater and save the race bike for racing.

    Keep in mind that bright flashing lights, especially in the middle of otherwise dark environs, may do more to anger drivers than make them aware of you.

    Sometimes. Then again, there are situations like in my case where I've bought dynamo light systems for all of our city bikes. Wouldn't have done that if I didn't think they were superior. Same for...

    Glad you're OK and hope these thugs get the book thrown at them.

    If your ride is fairly smooth it might not be a bad bike for the price. BD have a fair reputation so I don't think you'll get ripped off. If you'll be on much rough pavement or have a lot of bumps...

    Congrats. Consider that most people in The Netherlands and throughout Europe only average about 10 or 12 mph (as do I unless I'm doing a training ride on a road bike) so you're right in there. Enjoy...

    Such a U.S. thing still. I'd guess that less than 5% of people in The Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, and elsewhere store their bikes inside at work, and we get all uppity about it if we can't. No...

    Tinkering with gear is another big difference in the U.S. and elsewhere. The majority of bicycle riders in northern Europe aren't 'cyclists'. They're not in to gear or tinkering. They don't have...

    I'd be surprised if Minneapolis is 40% for transportation bicycling. My guess is maybe 25-30% (1 woman to ever 2 or 3 guys). Recreational riding may be 40% based on what I'd see on trails and the...

    Interesting that it's mentioned that the tricycle rider wasn't wearing a helmet. He's twice as likely to have been killed by a cause other than by a head injury.
