    What do you mean there was no resistance at 26 mph? Were you riding in a tailwind? What's the highest gear (number of teeth on front and rear sprockets) you have now?

    It's somewhat analogous to giving a 16 yr old kid a 400HP car to learn to drive on. Sure they can learn but it's a distraction and not optimal.

    No problem if it's a casual group ride where...

    The one I rode was quite a heavy bike as it had fat tires so it likely had a fairly big motor. It's fine when you're pedaling along at a steady speed but I suspect it's more difficult to make subtle...

    I don't want riders in paceline having to jam on their brakes.

    The problem is it would be more difficult to control your speed and maintain a smooth paceline with an e-bike. An experienced rider...

    I test rode an electrically assisted fat bike on a field once. I don't know if it was representative of all e-bikes but my observation was that the power from the motor didn't cut off instantaneously...

    I'd be OK with a 350W power limit but no speed limit. I think California allows up to 45kph which would suit me. I might get one some day if they can be made reasonably light with no speed governor.

    +1. There may be some other videos showing something else but all I saw was a calm officer sitting on a kid who allegedly wouldn't give his name and instead was verbally abusive.

    I'd be willing to bet your friend generates less CO2 commuting than half the smug participants in this thread. I commute on a bike 60+km/day and I'm pretty sure she's got a smaller carbon footprint...

    Not the best but far from the worst. Poor customer service would be if you actually had a problem that they were unable to resolve. Their website clearly indicates that requests for info will be...

    I suggest to stop thinking about replenishing calories burned and focus on replacing carbs. On a long ride if you aren't going too hard maybe half or more of the calories burned will come from fat....

    My car uses about 13L/100km. 12,000km => 1560L. Yes (unless I use my wife's Smart car). About $1/L.

    They either use a B-screw or the adjustable plate, not both. If you don't have a b-screw you adjust the plate as shown in the diagram.

    Find a faster group to ride with. You may be the fittest person at work but that likely won't be the case if you find the right cycling group.

    I just read DC Rainmaker's review on the Pioneer powermeter and confirmed that calibration of the meter consists of a zero offset and slope. You should be zeroing the meter/head unit before each ride...

    I meant you may need to change your gearing. On a 16% hill I always assume my legs are going to be burning. They're usually short though.

    Perhaps you just need lower gears? The degree of difficulty of a hill is directly related to how fast you ride. If you were able to walk up the hill you likely could also pedal up given the...

    It depends what type of job you're looking for. My son is a recent software grad and takes the bus to work and walks home (8km). He lives in the city now but also worked downtown when he was living...

    If you rent very often it's worth getting a credit card that includes car rental insurance. Then you can decline the CDW offered by the rental agency.

    Tough to tell on a loop ridden at different times. I'm not familiar with pioneer but is it possible to check calibration by hanging a weight off the pedal and measuring torque? If not, find a steep...

    I think a criminal record and 150 hrs of community service is a reasonable deterrent to others. I don't think she'll be causing any more trouble on the trails.

    My incremental cost of commuting is very low. I ride about the same 10hrs/wk whether I'm commuting or not. I ride in worse weather commuting so maybe a little more frequent chain/cassette/brake pad...

    How much you burn depends on how hard you ride. The faster you go the more Cals/mile. I weigh about 165 and usually end up in the 40 cal/mile range. I follow Robert Gesink on Strava and he is in the...

    Not sure this topic is as hotly debated as you seem to think. As men age they're more likely to experience ED. I haven't heard any correlation between riding and ED though.
