    Thanks, and in that vein, you could instead use the velcro to hold the front brake closed.

    There's a little gadget that attaches to your downtube and you can it swing over to prevent the wheel from turning. This lets you lean the bike against something without it falling. Maybe someone...

    Anyone who has ever driven in NYC knows that the pedestrians are mostly brain dead. They'll wander aimlessly in front of cars, bikes, each other. Weaving through them as you ride is the only way to...

    Metal wasn't cleaned properly before welding so escaping gas from the heated contaminant will forms a pinhole before the weld cools. Proper cleaning probably costs more than cheap welds.

    Picked this up at a garage sale yesterday. Was a good bike in its day but it's probably been sitting 25 years. I'll make it presentable but not sure how far to take it.

    I'd rather have a kid not ride a bike than ride a bike without a helmet.

    We're talking about kids here. I live across from a school yard. Kids throw their coats and jackets all over the lawn. They could care less where they throw their helmets while they're playing.

    No. I don't believe that -unless an adult poisons their mind. I've seen that regarding seatbelt use many times.

    Children have larger heads in proportion to their bodies than adults do so helmet laws for children make sense. We've had mandatory helmet laws for kids under 14 here for years and kids pretty much...

    I think rigid enforcement of the reduced 25mph speed limit would save more lives than anything else.

    One thing about the one-ways is that there's more room for bikes. Car drivers aren't limited...

    We used to use activated charcoal to leach out the plasticizing agents in common household items to accelerate aging for testing purposes. Perhaps something in Simple Green does the same thing.

    The change in law is more than a semantic difference. You must come to a complete stop when someone is anywhere in the crosswalk even if there is room for you to safely pass. Drivers follow the rule...
