    Would you believe... I started this thread but I don't think I've ever done a C&V century? Pathetic, I tell ya.

    Well if I can do a half century on my half century old Raleigh DL-1, that will do it.

    That sucks. Glad the mud "cushioned" your fall. I hit a patch of algae on a low water crossing last fall and ended up in the river; it broke my fall and kept me from getting hurt. Even my cell...

    That's because cycling is, by and large, safe. But doing extra things to make sure other traffic can see you, and you have better self-awareness, can't hurt, right? You may be perfectly comfortable...

    Yeah, I wouldn't worry about it. Not sure how much you want to spend, but I like my setup using a hitch receiver and a bike rack that attaches to it. I got my hitch receiver at etrailer.com. I...

    If you go, say, 13-15 mph, will it make a difference? To a car you're slower than they are and they're not going to think any worse of you for going 13 versus 18. Ride at your own pace.

    Yeah, check out all the resources at CommuteOrlando. Brilliant stuff; the best I've found online in terms of guides to maneuvering a bicycle in traffic. And as others have said, the two things I...

    The general perception (including by LAB) is that Ft Worth is not very bike friendly. This is true on the surface, but if you want to get around by bike, it's not that bad. Transportation cyclists...

    That's because it's been a jobless recovery, and many people who are working aren't getting raises. So you make do however you can.

    Oh, another thing... will the business model for self-driving cars ever get to a subscription basis (rather than purchase)? A fleet of cars distributed over a city that can be summoned via an app to...

    Nope. IGH are heavier than derailleurs. Because they're old and fat (and have disposable income), they will spend the money to get the fastest bike they can get to make up for being old and fat. ...

    Only if they get volumes enough to lower prices of the components, which hasn't happened yet. And I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Nope, don't see it happening. Too far from the norm. You need a custom frame, custom cogs custom belt.... Too much custom and it's expensive.

    Actually, yes. One thing I HATE is when cars slow down and pace me while they pass. Assuming it's safe, just do it and get it over with (without buzzing me, obviously). The longer the car is...

    True. It's like riding a Cadillac. And the weight isn't that bad once you get spun up. In fact, those heavy rims give you a lot of angular (spinning) momentum, so once you get up to speed it's...

    If I accommodate a right turner behind me, it's not by squeezing to the right.
