    I assume it'll happen once people realize it's more economical to live where you work, rather than obey Robert Moses' directive of "Live in suburbs, work in city".

    Using Runkeeper, but only because I've been using Runkeeper for about 5 years now, so switching would require a massive import/export of data, and not all of it is included (Like weight tracking).

    To be fair, there are the gutter punks who thinks it's cool to panhandle all day, and ride trains up and down the country. You can usually pick them out easily, due to their punk-type hairstyles...

    I shall remember to never switch hands for my walking stick I use for knee problems... I must keep it in the same hand. Always. Thanks for the tip.

    Wrong. It means you have applied 100% of the braking force available. After that, the work is on the tire.

    As long as you are able to lock a brake system, any other improvements will come from...

    I use Runkeeper, but if I had to start over again, I'd probably start with "MapMyRide". I'm sticking with runkeeper because of the 5 years of data I already have there.

    The screen is by far the biggest consumer of power from the phone. You can help this with 2 devices: A pebble watch + phone. My phone can last me most all day running like this.

    Yes, in more rural areas, they're used in lieu of a traffic light to control access to a more "primary" route, from a secondary (Main route has no stop sign, secondary has the stop sign). However,...

    Yeah, they're usually installed to keep traffic speeds under 35mph. I don't know too many cyclists that exceed that speed.

    The ability to lock the wheel isn't a measure of effective braking action: It's a demonstration that you have applied 100% of the possible braking action on a wheel. If you're locking your brakes,...

    That's not very odd at all. I adjust my calipers to give me the maximum amount of braking action with the maximum amount of depression on the levers I'm comfortable with.

    That doesn't mean...

    Don't worry about rear window visibility. Lots of vehicles have 0 visibility in the rear window, and in fact, you don't even need a windshield mirror by law.

    Are you not able to lock your caliper brakes when wet? If not, have you adjusted your calipers for proper braking? As said previously, I can lock my caliper brakes up, even when wet, going...

    You could also look into getting a hitch kit. They're not very pricey, about $150 or so.

    ~5 miles one way. I just wear compression shorts under whatever I happen to be wearing that day. And, the compression shorts are just because I like wearing them now. Prevents "swamp crotch" when...

    Amazingly, even in wet conditions, I can lock up my tires when braking... Seems traction is key, rather than the braking mechanism. But, to each their own, I suppose.

    I've got about 30 pounds to shave off my bike... Mostly in the rider, however. That's the cheapest spot to reduce your total weight from.

    Western NY is generally a 5/5. It's just as good by car as by bike. One locale in particular seems to have an outright enmity against cyclists, but overall, not bad.
