    A possible solution would be to mount them on the handlebar ends, the widest part of the bike. When you signal left, the right signal comes on solid as a reference, with the left blinking. Vice versa...

    Good point. It should be obvious that that's a bad idea in today's world of security theater. After all, these are the same people who tell us we can't have backpacks, handlebar bags, trunk racks,...

    Not trying to do anything different. This company has made suspension frames before in various designs. I'm just modifying the dimensions and geometry of my frame a bit to fit me better. Not trying...

    Most common rear shock length?

    Thinking about having a custom rear suspension frame made. What's the most common eye-to-eye length of rear shocks? I don't want to choose the wrong length and be left without replacement options...

    You didn't see that option because standard registration sold out a couple of months ago. Look around on Craigslist a few days before the tour. Somebody who can't ride will probably be selling their...

    You don't have to do any fundraising. That's only for people who want to be in the charity start wave or want to help a charity. Everybody else just pays the registration fee, or at this late date,...

    You don't need cops blocking the streets any more than you need cops guarding a building where you can be arrested for trespassing. If there are barriers and you went around them as an unregistered...

    Since the course is closed to the general public with barricades and other barriers, this law would seem to apply. Same thing if you tried to squeeze onto a blocked-off parade route. IANAL.

    Go ahead and try to raise the money. Keep an eye on Craigslist a few days before the ride. There's almost always somebody who can't ride and has to unload theirs. Also ask on the New York Cycle Club...

    It's true that you'll be at nearly the front of the first wave, just behind the VIP riders, but that wave also includes 1/3 of the 32,000 riders. With marshals keeping the front of the ride in check,...

    I envy you. Was going to ride for a charity specifically to get near the front and avoid the casual riders, but things came up and I won't be participating this year. Oh, well. There's always next...

    It did not sell out in one day. It took over a week. I don't think it sold out in one day last year, either. The last time it sold out that quickly was sometime around 2011.

    I can't say that I understand this compulsion some people have to get through the tour as quickly as possible. To me, it would be about enjoying a relaxed ride on streets completely free of traffic,...

    Single speed splined freewheel?

    Is there any such thing as a single speed threaded freewheel (not a freehub) that will accept a standard Shimano-type 9-spline cog?

    There was no doubt they would sell out. But it's simply not selling out in a day or two the way it used to.

    Five Boro Bike Tour 2015

    So who's doing the 5BBT this year? Looks to me like registration is slower than other years. Five days in and they're still not full. Big difference from recent years when they would fill up after...

    The more rounded urban style ones aren't as bad, like the Bell Adrenaline. I wish the Hövding airbag helmet wasn't so expensive. Get it under $100 and I'd bite. Oh for the chance to feel the wind...
