    Last summer, Walmart was selling steel single speed road bikes with drop handlebars for under $150.00! I was tempted to buy one since they reminded me of the old ten speeds of the 70s. However, the...

    Good article.

    We have to hope the "Bike Share Transit Act" passes and cities start receiving government funding. This is huge and it's almost like the annual ridership of a bus line!

    I like the concept. However, I still want a white helmet for the summer. A dark helmet draws too much heat.

    Another problem with the hard helmet that doesn't get destroyed during impact is that...

    I used to enjoy watching Michael Schmacher in F1 years ago for he is considered the best ever. However his luck ran out and he's basically paralyzed and cannot talk. His family spends tens of...

    You're not going to find deals in New York City because people have money to spend. The best deals for used bikes are on Ebay for someone living in Metro New York. However, you can't buy name brand...

    I like the Schwinn Sierra 2 from Nashbar. You can fit fenders and still under the budget. It's all steel and no front shock. Plus, it's low geared with the Shimano MegaRange.

    That picture is a PCC streetcar built back in the 1940's and still operational. Streetcars are very durable and last for decades! This keeps the fare box low since new coaches aren't purchased...

    That's what I was thinking. Maybe the girl is heavy and not in good health. If that's the case, the mile walk might be a solution from possible health problems in the future.
