  1. A More Elegant Solution for the Gates Carbon Drive

    What are some of the pitfalls/problems with this style of frame?
    This should make a much more elegant solution for Gates Belt Drive than leaving a trapdoor bolted in the frame.
    Why isn't someone...

    Sorry for the clumsy wording. I'm sure your son is fully capable and responsible; it's the texting minivan moms I don't trust. I see so many of them (easily more than half), I don't even shout...

    Hot diggity! Definitely going to take some time off work for this!

    Would you trust your kid on a bicycle with all the other texting mothers not paying attention to what or whom they're running over? Safest to get yourself a cellphone & minivan, and get in line with...

    Don't blame them at all. Texting drivers are getting worse and worse. If one of them negligently-homicides you, they're almost certainly not going to see the inside of a jail cell.

    50-18 seems to be my sweetspot.
    I'm a big fan of 50-tooth big rings. I just got my first compact crankset, but all of my other bikes have 50-39's.
    Kinda nice to leave it in the "big" ring at a...

    There is a sweetspot in every intersection; one that permits right-turners to pass, yet still out of the way of those going straight. It feels "a little too far forward" and is indeed sometimes on...

    Good work. There aren't enough of us considerate cyclists doing this. Pulled up behind two cyclists at stoplights yesterday and let them know there were right-turners behind us; happily, one of them...

    Thanks indeed! I just rode 99.97 miles up to Dana Point, then out to Bonsall yesterday. Fortunately the MP gate guard stopped myself and another cyclist while a wayward semi-truck made a U-turn back...

    I did it back in 2010 with Robertkat and Tollhouse, and we got lucky with the wind. The full century course takes advantage of a long tailwind section out of town, riding east in the desert. You just...
