    I'm not sure we can blame Apple for this problem. I'm sure iTunes would work, if I could just get the device recognized. But the driver is unsigned and Windows 7 is specifically prohibiting me from...

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. You didn't say you were on a divided highway, but the words "high speed" threw me off. So what you meant was a main arterial road through the city.

    Welll, I'm moving along

    This is starting out as my third summer hitting the local trails regularly (I also did it a few times back in February, but not often and I ended up doing a lot of walking). My skills are getting...

    I ride about the same distance as you -- 10km through town to get to my local trail system. Sorry to hear about the loss of your car; I lost my job years ago and went through hard times as well. If...

    How often do you see municipal buses on a multi-lane highway? Are you riding down the expressway through town? Something about this doesn't add up.

    I was once attacked by a rottweiler, badly enough to have to go to the hospital and get stitches in my arm. Would it be disgusting if I managed to kill it in self-defence?

    If you ride in winter, you'll appreciate a dynamo hub. From my experience, batteries have a pathetically short life below -10C (14F), and don't work at all after -25C (-13F). Since you live in NYC,...

    Wiring up a dynamo hub

    I ordered a Shutter Precision hub, and it should be arriving soon. Then I can rebuild my front wheel and wire up the headlight/taillight that are already here.
