    No, I only have it if I don't have my foot clipped-in and resting way far in front of its normal position, which I don't really think counts.

    Yeah. I think people are weirdly obsessed with bashing city riders who really, really want to avoid it for understandable reasons -- a wobble in Boston traffic means cars doing SO MANY weird things...

    I will admit I've never gotten the hang of that dismount/remount over the top tube. I am flexible enough I can get a tiptoe down with the saddle in the right place for my knees, and just do that. ...

    Well, I haven't had an 11-23 and a 11-25, but as a fellow athena/clyde I swapped my 11-28 on my rando bike to an 11-36 (required a new derailleur) and never looked back. When I need those gears, I...

    FYI, Dill Pickle can make a handlebar bag that works with interrupter levers, if you decide you want one. It may be slightly tricky to see the levers in this pic because both they and the back of...

    One recommendation: pick something with a low likelihood of injury and that doesn't tend towards the same overuse injuries, because it really, really stinks to have your endurance riding season...

    I like the way my A23s ride, but they are a bear to get tires on and off of, even with thin rim tape. Most of the Velocity rims are available in polished silver for an upcharge, if classic-ish...

    I haven't done D2R2, but it's just phenomenally beautiful out there. There are also a lot of other similar rides cropping up every year -- the Kearsarge Klassic is the weekend after d2r2 (it is not...

    There are running/hiking skirts with pockets deep enough to stick some stuff in while walking around (won't keep it there while riding.

    Yup, I can chime in. I live slightly further north of Tufts (north of 16), and used to live in Union Square. That Google Maps suggestion is mostly OK, but the intersection of Somerville Ave and...

    FYI, interrupter levers can be added to any* road bike, so don't base your decision on that alone.

    I can't brake hard from the hoods -- the angle is just one I can't seem to build hand strength....

    They don't have women's arm/leg warmers -- they're "unisex". I tried the knee warmers in the appropriate diameter at one point -- they were literally so long that the elastic bit wanted to be several...

    Only issue with arm coolers is that I haven't found anyone making them in Athena sizes -- women often (not always, but often) carry a fair amount of fat on the upper arms; I tried the biggest ones I...

    Terry's XXL in straight sizes or 1X in their plus-sizes should be about right (I'm an 18 as well, and have some of each), and they make very light sleeveless tops.

    However, one downside to...

    Is it possible there's a rim issue involved? That's never where tires go for me. If there was something slightly weird about your rims that's gotten worse, maybe the tires are still the same as...

    There's quite a few car-free or car-light folks in the Boston randonneuring contingent; the start point for the Boston rides is a fairly-flat 10-15 mile cruise out to the suburbs for city dwellers. ...

    Are there any bike shops in your area that sell refurbished old bikes? You can get a lot for your money that way, and still get something that's been gone over very closely by a good shop.

    You can certainly do that. Getting out of the city is step 1, though, and where you end up staying is a factor. If Cambridge is an option, go for it -- there's a MUP (and a fairly...
