    Chad,

    I've been doing the Zoo Climb with regularity now and make it a loop via Village Parkway which I think is probably safer than descending Lakemont (or simply going back down the Zoo Climb which...

    I remember about 30 years ago I saw a solid gold Canon AE-1 that some guy in Saudi Arabia ordered. I suspect the customer for this bike will be similar.

    Bicycle acoustics are a hard thing to pinpoint. You may think you know the area a sound is coming from and you can also easily be wrong. I think bicycles of today are probably better in most respects...

    My biggest problem is seeing a cool jersey I used to wear 25 years ago and realizing it's a "M" and I'm a now "XL" (for cycling only). I should give old stuff away, but I think "I wore this Descente...

    If there was a collision in this instance the police report would probably say the cyclist was traveling at an "unsafe" speed--which of course is a sort of catchall to be able to always blame the...

    I probably wouldn't try it in January with a major El Nino forecast. I drove up to Seattle this past July and saw a lot of touring bicyclists around Leggett--it looked like fun, but I doubt I'd see a...

    Congratulations. That's impressive. However, looking at your picture it doesn't appear you need to lose weight--you just look fit (which you obviously are).

    Not too many flat 40-70 mile rides in Silicon Valley. I'd probably not want to use a road bike for a 2.5 mile everyday commute. Are two bikes a possibility? The number of good bike shops in the...

    I never used to do hill repeats but since I've moved to Mercer Island WA I've started to get used to them. The highest point on MI is only about 300 feet, so I figure 10 repeats on a quiet 200 foot...
