    I haven't stated a premise, but the facts I've brought up are correct. Regardless, these pros haven't been playing pro ball for 25-30 years, so what players were told 25 years ago hasn't much to do...

    Bike sharing or even bike rentals of nicer bikes, right there at the train station, would be perfect for people like us. Probably not a solution for the general public though. Shuttles or cabs...

    So you think that pro players now are all lied to, or are too dumb to judge the risks?

    I don't believe that you right about the incomplete and misrepresented information either. CTE possibly...

    How so? It's light and got a compact crank and 12-30 cogset, way more gear than you'd need unless you're climbing mountains in Colorado or something.

    You are talking about after the fact, not risk. Sometimes the risk manifests in injuries and health problems, sometimes it doesn't. The players judge the risk to be acceptable for the rewards.

    Question is replacing frequent trips between the two cities. I've driven a number of times Dallas to Houston, but never flown. It seems to me that a hassle getting in and out of the terminal would...

    It's way too hot to wear unless the temperature is in the single digits or low teens, so it's not often that I wear one. Most of the time in cold weather I wear a wind-breaker. I have a couple, not...

    I had the VP of Technology say something like that, my third or fourth day on the job as a contractor years ago. I just laughed and said "No don't do that, I like this job". My supervisor happened to...

    Yes I'd be 100% happy on that bike for commuting. A little heavy is the only knock on it. OP might prefer something else - kids seem to go for MTB for some reason.

    OP, I have to agree that visiting some bike shops is the best bet. Don't let them put you on a cruiser or up-sell some carbon wonder-bike - walk out when that starts and find a shop where they...

    As an ex-Texan I can say that there is a grain of truth in this. However, I suspect that a major problem with a Houston to Dallas high speed rail is the same that they faced in California: the...

    Like someone said, it depends a lot on the weather and how far you go. I can wear sweats or nylon over my slacks and be OK some days, but I can't ride just wearing nicer pants because they'll get...

    One of my favorite things about Fridays is that it's casual day at the office, and when it's cool I just ride in my jeans. On the way home I don't even bother changing. Yesterday was like that. ...

    I felt some empathy for Tony Romo last year, breaking his collarbone twice in the season. Having clavicle issues myself most of the year. In recent years he's had a herniated disk, fractured back,...

    All day it felt like something is busted in my foot, and I could barely walk without limping like an old man. Even sitting, throbbing pain. Then after a couple of miles on the way home it feels...

    Sticky: Stupid Rabbit

    He came streaking out of the darkness, so fast that I'm not even certain that it was a rabbit, and clipped my front wheel hard. :( No real damage caused, but that hurt.

    Riding with your back curved back like that is a beginners mistake, because it's the easiest way for an inflexible rider to bend forward. It doesn't take any particular effort or yoga training. ...

    How do you move your elbows forward?

    When I get tired on a long ride and not paying attention I've sometimes slipped into a position like that on the left. It's bad form and can become painful if...

    That would hurt my lower back, both the curved lower back and the slumped forward shoulders.

    On the right, the back is curved much like your spinal curvature when standing. Standing with good...
