    So, please tell me why police should not be required to sieze and destroy any cell phone in use by a driver and what on earth is the difference between crunching a cell phone and pouring out an open...

    There's a nice Sugoi jacket available; the fabric is printed with little reflective dots all over the garment.

    I'm a small business owner, not a bureaucrat. I'm just a cyclist who has ridden long enough to have lost all of his stupid. Some years ago I realized that there's a difference between a human being...

    No, I'm not opposed to it at all. It's similar to buying a guitar--you know when it's good even if you don't like the strings its got on it! With the right strings.........

    I'd be completely in support of the bill--with two provisions. One, a uniform and understandable definition of reflective clothing, two, that in any collision with a legally equipped cyclist the...

    I don't give a ****--a bicycle cannot do the harm that an automobile can.

    Bravo, Del. I like speech police almost as much as I like flats at night in the rain.

    Awesome! Hope US police departments pick this idea up! Remember, the word "automobile" appears NOWHERE in the US Constitution.

    We're starting to get an integrated enough transit system around here so I could agree with that.
    Wife and I are considering renting bike lockers at Delta Park for multi-modal trips. There's even...

    Two things: Almost all but the lightest full-race road bike frames are way overbuilt. There's no frame on the market in a hybrid, sport road bike, or touring bike that won't be strong enough for...

    A way you can tell--I live in an exurb of Portland, OR and like most who do, go into the Rose City pretty often.
    Central Portland neighborhoods have an obvious sign of 19th century traffic...

    If fear of legal or other reprisal could be introduced into the consciousness of most drivers, texting would not be a problem. As things are it is illustrative to not look on drivers as human--they...

    It's possible that a steel mandrel (round solid bar) can be driven through the head tube and at least reduce the dent. It is not impossible that doing so would cause some paint to chip away as the...

    I like my eyeglass mirror just fine. Bonus--it can be completely inverted for traveling in countries where they drive on the left side of the road.
