    As a runner and cyclist I am compelled to tell you to be careful. It's possible your tight calfs are going to put a lot of strain of your Achilles tendons, and that's not an injury you want to PT....

    I ride with clipless and powergrips and fixie straps (different bikes, duh). The one benefit of clipless I'll stand by is hi rpm cadence simply works so much better with clipless. The one detriment...
  3. I agree with you, but that is a fair and...

    I agree with you, but that is a fair and intelligent statement - and I don't think that's how things work. Cyclists are very frequent and visible, they'll get all the blame. What gets under my skin...

    Plenty of guys riding 24mph around here, sometimes in groups.

    Being a runner changed my point of view about bikes on a MUP, and I suppose the moms with strollers, parents with young kids, and...

    OK, I am tempted to make my third post about GP. I assure you I have no man crush.

    I've talked with him in the store & warehouse, he was interested in my bikes, my interests in bikes, what my...

    No sympathy here, considering how many times I've been rudely buzzed while running MUPs I'd say drop it to 10mph. I ride a road bike, on the road.

    Well,, it's sort of obvious. They are the bike designed by Homer Simpson, incorporating the most undesirable aspects of both road and mountain bikes, They are heavy, slow, clunky, non-aero, uncool...

    Another vote for Zaffiros, the ride is more like smooth, fast 700s. Alas, the look is hardly vintage. I don't' believe the "pro" is available in 27 any longer. If you look at the Vittoria website...

    I think this would be a better link for your reference: Specialized Bicycle Components

    Overtime, I suspect you will do upgrades, likely wheels first. But it's a fine bike, mine is one of the...

    I got fed up with my Honey B-17, took a new aluminum bat to it. It's good for the bat, they need to be given a little fracturing to release the bat's compression potential. Oh, the saddle turned out...

    Spin class. After a few classes spending time at 120-130rpm your 55rpm pace will feel like standing still.

    This. I've seen my adult kids adapt to different sized frames easily. However, time and distance tell the story. After a season on a bike 2cm too large my son developed neck and shoulder problems,...

    We had a miniature dachshund we used to let ride in a front basket. She barked at anyone who passed us. Enough said.

    The Continental GP 4000s II is now available in 28, I would definitely go that way. Gatorskins are OK but they don't ride as comfy as GPs, and the flat protection of GPs has been great for me.

    Another option might be a day at Angel Island, but more of a gateaway from the city itself. Right in the middle of the Bay, short Ferry trip, excellent views, no cars Bicycles | Island Insights. ...

    Agreed, and it also means distributing your weight over both tires, not over-weighting the rear. I suspect that riders who are repeatedly blowing up rear wheels are riding through potholes with 80+%...

    Lincoln Municipal Code says a bicycle rider needs to dismount and walk the bike on a crosswalk, which is the law everywhere I've lived. It says nothing about shifting accident liability to the bike...

    I bought that same year Miyata if you are talking steel blue and yellow; I added new tires, my daughter used it for 4 years in college. She was a bad ass rider, rain, snow, summer...the bike got her...

    That's the ticket. And if you do fall, get a little road rash - really, so what? That's why we humans are self-healing creatures. On the other hand, if you find certain behaviors needlessly risky,...

    Perfect timing for me to read this post. I went down last week, left hooked and I bailed right, lost some skin and pride. I was thinking the last few week, it's been years since I have fallen from a...

    I've had too much drama with that line that I haven't suffered with other tires. Their Plus urban line is heavy & difficult to fix flats in the wild, constant goathead flatting with the Supremes,...

    Knobby tires are no fun, but otherwise it's a great idea. It is definitely a good workout if you push it. You will find the sitting position & bars limiting for very long rides, but otherwise it's...

    I pretty much hate all things Schwalbe, though I still sport some Marathon Supremes on one bike "flat magnets" and Ultremos on another "the 1000 mile tire". Obviously I am not being objective, but...
