    What's with fat patches, anyway?

    When I started biking I bought a box of tube patches; I think it came with 50 or so round ones that are maybe 5 cm in diameter, and they feel a good 1.5mm thick. I haven't used them all up yet. I...

    Thanks. I tried a Strida a few years ago before settling on my current bike. The belt was certainly a good feature. There's a distributor in Mexico City; I may be able to swing by one day and try...

    My folding bike is not my only bike, but lately it may as well be. We have construction going on in our house, and there are some plastic sheet barriers to prevent the spread of dust. The sheets...

    Folding bike for children?

    My daughter is about to turn 8, and she needs a bigger bike than the 16" non-folder she has.

    The rolled edges keep water from exiting the fenders from the sides, so that it only exits from the back.

    The worst weather here doesn't go past rainy / foggy / windy - it doesn't snow. Still, the process of learning to ride in those conditions was, well, a process, rather than something instantaneous...

    It's a shame that this folding plane - Explore the A5 - ICON Aircraft - is too heavy to carry on a bike trailer. *Then* one would have the perfect combination.
  12. The delights of finding not-a-shortcut

    To bike from my suburb to the children's museum, one has two choices: brave the highway (uphill, narrow shoulder), or do a really long detour through calmer avenues. Well, today I found that there...

    Ah, the Taxi of Shame incident.

    One day I had to do a supermarket run, so I set up the panniers and the big-ass saddlebag.

    There were some bulky and heavy items on the list. Fabric softener,...

    Last month I took my Brompton to Gothenburg, and last year I took it to Strasbourg (close enough to Colmar). I did take a cable lock (horrors!), and found it useful exactly twice on each trip. Both...
