    I guess my riding season ended today

    Now they are predicting 15-20" of snow in NYC. That will end all outdoor riding for me, not that I've been out much lately anyway. Even after they clear the roads, it is too sloppy for my tastes to...

    The Goethals Bridge will also allow bikes across it for the first time, so there will be two crossings to SI. And if the VNB gets updated, maybe that as well.

    One of the rides I do when I don't have time for a 50+ miler is the 4 bridges ride, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Williamsburg, and Queensboro. It also includes the Pulaski bridge between Queens and...

    Thanks to both of you. Maybe that's why I find it so hard to get right. If this bike had 130 spacing I'd just swap in a spare 10sp wheel and use friction on that. Shifting 10sp with friction is...

    Bar top Suntour shifters?

    I have an old Cannondale with Suntour 7 speed downtube indexed shifting, a very early type. The indexing on this bike never worked very well, and it had a setting for friction, which is where it has...

    They don't belong there. Just because they are electric powered doesn't mean they don't have to follow motor vehicle rules. They have MOTORS.

    Maybe they should pave a piece of the golf course instead. The trail should stay as it is. With all the pavement in the city why can't one small section remain wild?
