    Are there any rubber protectants that will slow the dry out process on sidewalls?

    How could wheel reinstallation suddenly cause disc/pad drag? Rotors and calipers don't just move out of line on their own.

    If it drags, the wheel's not clamped in properly... either at wheel...

    As long as they stay far enough back, (about 4 car lengths) I'm fine with 'em back there. I'm good with my mirror and will not be surprised by a move.

    I've noticed that sometimes when drivers wait...

    Good jop, mtb addict.



    I'm all for choosing more relaxing routes when you can, but if one chooses to ride in a situation like the above, for whatever reason, it's best to not be meek about it....

    Since the seat post is over size, replacing it with a longer one is not an option. In the same diameter it will make the tear worse, and the correct diameter will now be way too loose.

    I'll do it.

    Wait... what kinda bike and how big of a helmet? This information is needed before I can approve of the "crash with helmet" as being the more senseful option.

    Oh, and how many...

    Wait a minute… there’s a VC tattoo? I’ll consider a shirt or jacket, (even socks... do they have socks?) but NO tattoos!



    Agreed. That's why several posts back I wrote:

    Sure, weigh the risks, explore the options, and choose accordingly.

    I doubt that riding with a VC tattoo is statistically any more risky than sidewalk cycling. Likely the opposite is true. (Even...

    I didn't know that one could be knocked out and not suffer at least a mild concussion. Anyway, glad you're ok.

    As far as which helmet, I'd say go with the one that fits best, and according to your...

    I believe someone makes a special bracket for this. Or if you're handy, you could just make your own. Basically, you have to cut the fender where it meets the fork. Instead of going under the bridge,...

    I like to think about how cycling to work makes me better than those driving in cars. :D

    Seriously, just mixing it up works for me. 12 miles each way 5x a week gets old fast. 3 times a week is...

    Hi, "Safety boy" here. :D Could you explain some of these "plenty of good reasons" to leave less than 3 feet of space?

    If 3 feet is not a valid minimum in your estimation, what is? 2 feet? 1? An...

    In some cases the desire to not be labeled a cyclist is due to common cyclist behavior.

    Right. But the media only gives their audience what they want. And a large majority of them are fascinated with celebrities for some goofy reason. Top sports athletes too. It's a reason some of us...

    The "polite" distance is always at least 3 feet. I almost always give even more than that when I pass cyclists. More space = more safety. There's really no good reason not to have it.

    This happened to me on a recent event ride. The close passing paceline behavior increases risk to all.

    Don't bother telling me about bike handling ability. Even the pros, with their "expert"...

    This is where it starts sounding like fear to me. “All it takes is one” can be said in any cycling situation.

    Sigh. Relying on last moment bailing is not a technique, sorry if I made it sound...

    I'm fine with being called a cyclist, and anyone can come to my funeral if I ever do get creamed by a car while riding.

    I just hope my story doesn't make it to A&S! :D

    It's not super human athletics at all. As I already posted, by far the vast majority drive up extra slow, from far back. The few who don't will be noticed with plenty of time remaining. In this case...

    Zero. Paceline riding adds additional risks that I prefer not to take. Too much chance for something to go wrong. Even the most highly trained pros go down... hard. No thanks.

    When I had a triple I spent 99+% of my time in the middle ring. (42) Decided I didn't need the other rings and now ride a single.

    This makes me better than triple or double riders! :p
