    Nonsense -- they're everywhere. They just blow the wrong way 98% of the time.

    Nothing anywhere near that intense, but I must admit I smiled when I realized I'd melted my tights during a high speed washout. Miraculously, I was practically uninjured aside from the second degree...

    Obligatory garage door photos taken before bike was adjusted. Being able to wear street shoes on a bike is weird but it's nice to not have to lug extra footwear. Haven't done that in a long time.

  5. Rat traps and DT are better than I remembered

    This Sunday while I was on a ride, I got a voicemail from a neighbor offering to sell an old bike (1985 Motobecane Grand Record). He was moving out later that day, and I couldn't reach him via phone...

    Once you get terrain that's too far away from what bikes were designed for, you're basically SOL. Seems that if you had crazy low enough gears like 24T in the front, 32, 36, or even 42 in the rear,...

    It has DT braze ons, but I run Rival on it. What put this bike over the top were the wheels. My original plan was to put them on my other bike since I hate the wheels I currently have mounted. But...

    N+1 or what to do with this bike?

    It's not often that you return from a ride with a different number of bikes than you started out with, and it's usually a bad thing when that happens. But such was not the case when a neighbor...

    I used to do this all the time but quit some years back. I tried yesterday to see if I still can. I can, but I don't really see the point.

    The most practical use case is to remove or put on a...

    I'm with Goater on this. On open or lightly trafficked roads, it's no big deal for a motorist to go into the other lane. But on busy roads, that doesn't work so well. Anyone who has slowed up for you...

    We're working on this together from different angles. I treat them like little kids who are too dumb to know any better. You aim for the wallet and maybe introduce legal pressure.

    Absolutely true.

    But their whole point is to provoke -- it's an automotive form of trolling. You give them that and it feeds them. That's precisely why it's best to let it go.

    In terms of absolute number of hostile people in the population, my estimate is way too low. But in terms of numbers of car encounters, it's not so far off. The reason for the discrepancy is that...

    I'm not a fan of solving range problems with pie plates. Anything over 28 is a pie plate and anything over 32 is getting pretty insane.
