    That's the one that leads me to believe that setback, and other design characteristics at the head of the post, has more impact on vibration damping than strictly material. Which means to me...

    Logical and fair.

    We should also keep in mind that wear on the roads increases with the cube of the axle weight. So a vehicle which weighs ten times as much does one thousand times the damage,...

    Google "Idaho Stop." There is no discernible difference in accident rates in Idaho, where bicyclists have rolled stop signs since 1982.
  4. It looks as if a DNR officer got carried away...

    It looks as if a DNR officer got carried away with his personal biased outrage and decided to teach a lesson with letter-of-the-law enforcement. He'll probably get told to knock it off and go back...

    She has less excuse then, than the left turn driver I was imagining. Since they should always look again before going. But some drivers just go, while looking back at the road to their left.

    I just got into a big discussion about this same scenario in another thread,

    california cop doesnt know law for cyclists


    Most important, I'm glad that you're OK!

    Second, it's up to the...

    Nothing is wrong with it, except that it washes off easier than wet lube. I'd use it all of the time it it wasn't so wet here.
  8. Yes. I figured that this part, coasting vs...

    Yes.

    I figured that this part, coasting vs steady, would be settled at the start so I went to the second part. Walking vs cycling (coasting or otherwise) as more exercise. In a given period of...

    I'd say at least 50% more, and more likely approaches 100% because no one deliberately looks to the sidewalk to their right before turning right. They are looking left for traffic, start out forward...

    I guess, in the same sense that walking in the Lion exhibit isn't inherently dangerous if you're quiet- it's just when you cross in front of their dens. The sidewalk isn't dangerous if you're careful...

    They cut the drop-bar handlebar in half in the middle to get those on, and bolt it back together under the shim sleeve.

    I have a downtube shifter strapped to the drop bar tops area on one bike,...
  12. Let me say just one thing, to clarify the weight...

    Let me say just one thing, to clarify the weight vs climbing thing, since you mention mountains and steep climbs. You can know exactly what difference each pound makes on the steep climbs.

    Say...

    OP has it backwards IMHO. Putting it all together is much easier than knowing which parts will work together, let alone which parts should be used. I'd rather pay a pro to design the build than to...

    Good points, but I don't necessarily agree that those are always true. My 9-speed Vuelta Corsa wheel for example is 11 speed compatible. While that wheel is not worth more than the bike, I wouldn't...

    Look up weights here
    Weight Weenies - Listings Index
    for example:
    Weight Weenies - Front Derailleurs

    Lower end components aren't necessarily listed there, but I've found those weights in Amazon...

    Best bang for the buck starts with tires, then wheels. If you're shaving weight after that, there are inexpensive light saddles which would mean more weight saved per dollar, though you may...
  17. If you ride at a casual pace with lots of...

    If you ride at a casual pace with lots of coasting, say around 12 mph, you'll burn about the same calories per hour as walking at 5 mph (a super-fast pace). Any faster on the bike, or slower walk,...

    I don't think that anyone did make that proclamation.

    It looks to me like people are telling you that riding on the sidewalk in the wrong direction is more dangerous. Regardless of your opinion...

    I have been using a cell phone wallet for several months and there are few drawbacks as far as I can see. I carry two cards, DL and phone the same way I'd previously carried a wallet. I don't see...

    Not only this, but the driver might literally never see you. For two reasons.

    One, if you're going at a pretty good clip from his right side, then you're already there by the time he's looked to...

    Could be, but I think that they're more worried about sneaking in your own snacks and drinks.

    To be fair to OP, the original post is about inexperienced riders jumping into a double rotating paceline at 30 mph and then winging it. The thread, like OP's paceline crashers, seems to veer off in...

    Perhaps a handling expert will have a different take, but rear wheel sliding - on the road not braking - is kind of weird. In my opinion. I'd personally look to the wheel and tire. Tire pressure,...
