    Riding is much of a production as you want to make it. I'm able to get some nice rides right out my door so I don't have to haul the bike anywhere. That means I leave the pump, tube, and tools on...

    I've had that happen. On one of my bikes, anytime I hear or feel a click the first thing I do is push the kickstand back in. Seems to fix it every time.

    In other words, the street in front of my house that gets maybe 30 cars and 10 bikes a day needs a dedicated bike lane? The street is already narrow enough that there is no parking on it so whose...

    It depends on the shop, the enthusiast, and what needs to be done. I do most of my own work, but don't hesitate to take it to the shop if it is something I'm not comfortable doing, or if it requires...

    If you get a chance, go down to your local library and check out "Bike Battles" by James Longhurst. Interesting history of sharing the road from the 1890s to the present.

    I seem to remember seeing somewhere that it only applied to bikes with wheels of over 20 inches. If this goes into effect, lets see how popular folders with 16 inch wheels become.
