    Our daily bikes are all Dutch city bikes with basic platform pedals. We ride in everything from bare feet to wing tips to boots. My road and track bikes are now all Speedplay Zero clipless. Some of...

    Very glad you're healing. And still have your sanity. And that your wife and family are making it through. The stress on both of you must have been enormous.

    Not today. But it does significantly reduced our annual mileage. If I wasn't in to cars (and boats) and own them for themselves rather than purely xportation then there is a fair chance that we'd...

    For racing it matters, otherwise not very much. When I was racing I had certain cadences that were definitely better for flats, uphills, tailwinds, etc. It wasn't unusual to change cassettes or...

    My primary bike is a Workcycles Opafiets that cost about $1500. It came with just about everything needed; front & rear dynamo lights, ring lock on the rear wheel, heavy duty rear rack, heavy duty...

    Depends on where you are. Here it's illegal to proceed unless you can clear the junction. It's not enforced much outside of winter but they're increasingly enforcing it during winter.

    I have a frame mounted steco (Azor/Steco Pickup frame mounting front rack) on my Opafiets with a small wood crate stuck to it. As mentioned previously, frame mounted handles loads much more...

    Our bakfiets does quite well with just a studded front. Other bikes not so much. I tried just a studded front one year and had two incidents of my rear wheel sliding out from under me. My foot found...

    If you received a call that your child had been taken to the emergency room in critical condition and might well die within hours would you drive patiently behind some bicycle rider on your way to...

    I've Nexus 8's, SA-5's, SA-3's, and N360's. All seem to work just fine through winters (down to about 0f or maybe occasionally -5f) with factory grease. I think much the same goes for about 8 million...

    Why?

    We just spent several days there riding all over without any major problems. We had three Nexus 8 and one SA 5. If I was in a race I'd certainly have wanted lighter bikes and more gearing...

    kickstart, props on that gorgeous bike!

    OP, there's a reason why riding an external geared bike for transportation is limited to the English speaking world and even at that mostly just the U.S....

    Doofus? Don't think so. My hat's off to the guy. I also wouldn't be surprised if he didn't have a wink from Citibike that if he pulled it off and got some good pub that he wouldn't be fined.

    He's...

    Best place to snowbird (in Florida) ?

    Where in Florida do you think is the best place to snowbird for a couple of months each winter with priority given to:

    1 - Safe and comfortable to bicycle on a city bike for daily local needs like...

    Generally agree. I have a N360 on one of my Opafiets and love it. Technically it does have a bit more drag than an 8-speed but in practical riding I don't really notice it.

    @wilfredLaurier, no major drop in quality that I'm aware of. There have been sporadic incidences of specific hubs from specific time periods having problems but overall SA and Shimano (and Rohloff?)...

    Most cloth based rain hoods won't likely work well under a helmet as the material will get pushed and pulled and likely loose its ability to prevent you from getting wet. The material needs to be...

    In MN the trick is to time the mounting of the studs until we know winter is definitely here. I've not done so yet in MN. They keep the protected bikeways fairly clear so I'll not need them until at...

    Round 1 - That happens occasionally to all online retailers. Not unusual.

    Round 2 - Minimum online order amount is standard with most retailers. Not unusual here.

    Of course. We'd not have a single cyclist left on this forum were it not for helmets saving their lives.

    For those that don't get it after watching, it actually has nothing to do with cycling in Amsterdam. It was done purely to make fun of cyclists in the U.S.

    Those are decoration. Minneapolis wants visitors to think people there are fit and active all winter so they bought 10,000 used bikes and chained them up all over. They've a staff of 11 full time...
