    By the way, a 'Dad voice' only goes so far in traffic. Lights are unnecessary in the daytime. Literally unecessary. You cannot be ticketed for not having lights on during the day. A car has an...

    Sorry, I just don't think there will be anything glaring enough at that price level to make one clearly "better" than the other. Going by just the photo's I would pick the CAADX. I've always liked...

    I cannot agree that most bars are 31.8. There is a ton of 26mm drop bars out there. The o.p.'s 25.4 stem can easily fit a 26mm bar if it is a 'pop-off' design. If not, stems are cheap. I got a nice...

    I'm hoping this is a misprint.



    I wonder why that would be. Braking the rear wheel is nice, not necessary. Braking the front wheel is very necessary. Just because...

    Why is that so stupid? You, the o.p. and others in this thread way overestimate the likelihood of a right hook collision in this type of scenario. There is such a thing as convention, and whether you...

    They aren't timid, they don't understand what you have done. If you want to make it more clear then the thing to do is stop well short of the intersection. Like two or three car lengths short. Cars...

    Nope. It's a politeness issue. But it's alright. Own the rudeness. You and the o.p. Own it. I don't know where you ride, but a driver here, no matter how impatient, would never honk at a cyclist...
