    HillRider Thanks for the reply! Do I just take a dab of the repair goop and put it underneath the rubber?

    Would it be unsafe to ride the tire as is?

    So 106 views and not a single reply?
  3. Small nick in sidewall? Or is rubber peeling?

    I bought a new Michelin Pro4 Endurance tire to replace one that I blew out when I ran over not one but two shattered beer bottles. :p

    Well I went for a ride today came home and during my post ride...

    I've had this issue in the past. For a while when messenger bags were just starting to take off in NYC many places would demand I leave my bag with them. As messenger bags got more prevalent many...

    Yeah um you're way off base. REREAD my post including the part just after you highlighted talking about a protected bike lane. VC propaganda? Really?

    Yeah... no. I'd keep going straight and take the lane rather than go around that thing. Since it causes you to have to merge with cars driving over it at a weird angle. I'm sure it made sense to...

    Comparatively nice day today! I went down a street this afternoon that was so gridlocked that all the cars decided to take the bike lane over that was fun... not. I almost got hit by a car that ran a...

    While not a commute I thought I'd share this story with you all. I needed to go west on Chambers so I took the Brooklyn Bridge and not the Manhattan. I met this amazing family of tourists in the bike...

    I suspect if I put this on my bike in NYC I'd rip it off a block or two later. If you don't wear earbuds and look back every once awhile you'll rarely be taken by surprise.

    I'm sorry what did I miss read? Your statement "That is often parroted but its not a universal truth by a long shot." Which is actually kinda of insulting or the part where you explicitly state you...

    I've had people make illegal turns in front of me when I used to hug the curb at reds. It also puts you at increased chance of getting right hook. It makes larger vehicles think they can turn around...

    My rules are as follows:

    1. Yellow, neon yellow or black cars equal danger!
    2. Out of state plates equal danger.
    3. Rear light is always on.
    4. Carry bungee cord always.
    5. The NYPD is not...

    Where I am it's a bit different then the rest of the country. Turns on red in New York City are illegal unless a sign is posted stating otherwise. So I stay in either the bike lane, far right as safe...

    kickstart Yep and in the real world taking the lane is, when warranted, one of the best things a cyclist can do.

    Your post is so dead wrong it's not even funny. In fact it is probably the dumbest thing I've read all day. He flipped off a truck that endangered is life. Nothing wrong with that. In NYC we tend to...
