    It's different. Riding on a NuVinci is almost, for lack of another qualifier, surreal. You can dial it in exactly where you want it. Combined with a Gates belt, it's silent and immediate. ...

    I'm not really sure what category I would fall into (other than saddles) but probably new school. I like old school leather saddles. My oldest bike is a 2002 Cannondale Road Warrior and it's on my...

    Now I know I am getting older. Not only do I have no desire to do that, I can't imagine anyone taking the time to learn it.

    Twice that I can remember when I was a kid. The best crash was going down a four story hill at the bottom of which we had built a ramp. No one wore helmets back then. Took my Stingray down it and...

    My Big Dummy is my favorite bike. I wish they made a mid tail version without the xtracycle components, just additional set back mounts for a standard rack. I'd buy that one too.

    They only thing that makes me judge someone else's bike is a lack of lights and reflectors and when tires are too low. Beyond that, I don't care what other people ride. As for my own bike, I like...

    Hi Lady,

    I think you should consider a flat foot bike like the Electra Townie. It might give you the confidence to ride because you can always put your foot down, even when seated. You may...

    Steel frame, internal gears, something like a NuVinci would work well. If you can, go carbon belt for lack of maintenance. 26" wheels for durability and wheel/tire availability. V brake for...

    I didn't hit it but came damn close a few year ago to hitting a very large raccoon. Both of us would have been in pain had I been any closer.

    1. No, ride at your average pace.
    2. Two bottles, you can always get more on the road.

    I got a 2002 Cannondale Road Warrior NOS at a shop in 2009. Even the owner didn't believe me when I told him about it, he had to look it up. I got a good deal that day.

    Electra Townie is great for casual riding. No matter what bike you get, you'll probably have to upgrade the wheels to something in 36 to 40 spoke range.
