    Mostly, I just use bottles while riding. I make multiple stops a day to refill them (usually one bottle of water for each bottle of Gatorade, depending on the heat). I pack a Camelbak bladder,...

    I was an Armadillo fan for years. The last time I replaced tires, I went with the Specialized Espoir. It's a sportier tire than the Armadillo, but it still has awesome flat protection. (I rate them...

    I bought one earlier this year. I didn't care for it. I thought it would be more stable than a single. However, when the kickstand went down, my front wheel was off the ground. Eventually, the wheel...

    Just got back from Lenscrafters and I'm still not seeing how the statistics don't apply to individuals.

    A person either will have heart disease or not. 100% or 0%. Fine.

    I work 9-6. I get up between 5 & 5:30 and leave the house between 6 & 6:30. I roll up between 7:50 & 8:30. I make it a point to be at work early on the days I ride my bike. If I have a flat or other...

    You are wrong. There are very few, if any that require cyclists to FRAP based on the speed of cars. If cycling at a reasonable bicycle pace, FRAP rarely applies.
