    I looked seriously at the Buena Vista when I got my bike. That's what i would have done if I had been more confident in my bike building abilities at the time. It's a beautiful bike.

    I'm so glad you are okay. That must have left you feeling pretty rattled. I'm grateful that the SUV driver pursued them. My instinct would have been to stay behind to be sure the cyclist was okay,...

    Not flaming, but I wouldn't say "women aren't into that." I love learning how to work on my own bike and am intensely curious about how it functions. I'm in a bike overhaul class at my local co-op...

    29 of 29. The city dropped a mountain of mulch in the middle of the road I usually take through the park. I have to say that this is best reason for a detour I've ever had! My shortest ride so far...

    Anyone tried the Abus Hyban helmet?

    The adjusting ring on my 12 year old helmet has started slipping so that I can no longer keep it tight on my head, so it's time to look at a replacement. I'm curious about the Abus Hyban helmet,...

    I'm really glad to hear this! I have a Bianchi Volpe on order and these are the tires it comes with. Here's hoping my luck with them will be as good as yours has been.

    I hadn't heard this, but it rings true. I'm using Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires. I've gotten to where I only check the pressure once a month, and even then they don't really need to be topped off. No...

    Commuting, but today I found a new path to work that took me through a more residential area than I normally get for the next to last mile. Really nice. It added about half a mile each...

    Hello pennyapple - When I first began bike commuting I found it quite intimidating to ride with traffic. I would stay as far to the right as I possibly could, which sometimes meant that I ended up...

    Part of my commute takes me through a forested area of a city park. Once when I was riding through I saw an older couple on the trail ahead of me so I rang my bell. The woman turned around to look...

    I'm 22 for 22 today. The bike commute to work on Earth Day seemed especially appropriate.

    18:18 - 15 miles just for fun. Checked out a new cycle track in town along a major road. Nice! I also revisited an LBS and put a new bike on order: a Bianchi Volpe!

    It's funny you should mention this.... I just got back from the bike shop and, after talking it through with them, decided to go with the Volpe. They've put it on order for me. I hope to have it by...

    This has been my biggest dilemma with this bike: whether to go with something more versatile like the Volpe. It's primary use will be for faster, longer on-road rides, though the city roads that can...

    Thanks! I'm heading out to the bike shop this morning with a series of questions. The bike I test rode included interruptor levers on the tops, and I suspect that was to accommodate for the issue...
