    And it did obviously "see" the cyclist which is a good thing.

    They were probably QA people laughing at the software engineers. It would be pretty risky to change anything while the car is operating on the streets.

    There's underwear designed for cycling that may help, though I'm not sure you'd want to wear them all day.

    If you're content to take it slow and easy on the way in but wanted to ride fast on the...

    I would guess most road bikes sold in the US prior to the mid 80's or so came with 27" inch wheels and 1.25" tires (about 32 mm). They typically had rack/fender mounts as well. These aren't...

    Honestly, I think there are enough cyclists that don't really observe stop signs that drivers can't assume that they will stop just because they are supposed to.

    So what is a traditional road bike and what to you consider wide? ;)

    If you ride it to work, it's a commuter bike. If you enjoy riding said bike to work, it's a good commuter bike for you, - but...

    A Fixed Gear Bike Can Mess With Google's Self-Driving Cars

    To be fair to the computers, I have had drivers with the right of way stop or not take their turns at intersections. They assume I'm...

    Of course I don't really know but I'm guessing that some of the complaints individually could have been over-looked but collectively it was too much to ignore from their perspective.

    When my son first got his most recent bike (a fixed gear), I wanted to have him keep a small saddle bag on it with a spare tube, CO2, etc. but he'd have no part of it. That sort of thing ruins the...

    Supposedly CF doesn't fatigue. It could have been damaged long ago and/or there was enough movement between the dropout and the hanger to wear through the fibers until it got to the point where...

    Don't have a carbon bike but on the one bike with a replaceable hanger, it's bolted to the dropout. If it was a CF dropout and that bolt was over-tightened I could see how it could have damaged the...

    Well, you don't quit burning calories just because you drive. Sitting burns about 75 calories per hour. Reading about 100. Driving is probably somewhere in between. Depends on your muscle mass too.

    Don't see how cross chaining could cause that. Maybe if the skewer was a little loose, the wheel could have been pulled into the derailleur. Possibly the hanger was loose or maybe even over...

    If I were a thief I'd be sweating bullets trying to remember which pedal unscrews backwards.

    I have one of the pedals that the OP has pictured, but there's gashes on the aluminum parts and rust on the steel parts.

    I don't think they do anything to add to the appeal of a bike whose...

    I think you're right, while bikes have become popular with young adults who live in this city, I've noticed far more whites on bikes than blacks, -in numbers that are out of proportion with the...

    To be fair, most of bad behavior I witness from cyclists is from those wearing regular clothes. Of course most cyclists I see aren't wearing lycra anyway unless I'm someplace outside the city.

    Roadies often have a different view of what a "leisure" ride is. It's not really fair that they changed things up on you like that but I tend to agree that roadies doing a "leisurely" 15 to 20+ mph ...

    Pretty bad behavior.

    I used to do quite a few group rides and as a rule that kind of behavior was strongly discouraged. But you can't control who shows up for the rides and there are people that...

    It's a good question. I've wondered as well. They do the same thing with bike share bikes. I like to think of them as a greener way for people to get around but I'm concerned about how much of that...

    There's no guarantee that same car will still be there for the trip home. Someone else can grab it in the meantime. You can reserve a car 30 minutes in advance, but that won't work if you're going be...

    The annual cost to own a small sedan was $6,729 last year. That's driving 15,000 miles annually and assuming you buy a new car every 5 years. That small sedan would most likely be bigger and be more...
