    Another hot day today. Highs in the 90s with lots of humidity. Forecast says a cold front will move through later today and drop temperatures back into the 80s. I hope it's correct!

    I replaced my chain once and found that the sprockets had worn out too. This caused the new chain to skip horribly for a few weeks. Now it's worn to match the sprockets and I'm sure doesn't meet any...

    Sure, I've been hit from behind in my car before. No damage other than a small mark on the bumper, I'm just going to tell the other driver to be more careful and let it go.

    You should obtain his insurance info and make a claim. It's what insurance is for. You should only involve police if there's an injury or the damage is severe enough that you can't ride away.

    I think I gained 5 pounds of water weight on the ride home last night. In hindsight, I should have just waited it out at the office. Some of the lightning was getting close!

    Oil sits on the shelves at the store far longer than 8 weeks. 0w-20 oil also means that it's barely doing anything when cold anyway. I don't think the engine will be hurt.

    This whole thread smells. Why am I ostracized for not wanting a sweaty back, wanting to be easily seen at a distance, and not wanting to be in an aero tuck during my commute? I definitely don't pedal...

    I wear Glo-Gloves year-round. In the colder months, they get pulled over snow gloves. They provide great hand visibility in low-light and are super reflective in headlights.

    Just thought I'd check in. Wonderful riding weather the past few weeks. Due to my car needing work, I've gotten in roughly 25 commutes in a row, with no sign of stopping

    If I'm at the front waiting for a light, I'm in the left-hand side of the lane anyway. Sometimes there's room for right-turners, sometimes not. I've never been asked to move over.

    I tried ebooks and went back to paper. It's a lot more comfortable to hold a paperback than an e-reader, and the battery never dies! :)
