    I just call/text the boss and tell her I got a flat. No big deal at my job.

    This is what I use, a Lumina 650. It's pricy, but it's brighter than my magic shine was and doesn't have the ultra annoying external battery pack. It uses the same charge connector as my phone, so...

    I don't like kickstands. My GF has one on her vintage specialized racing bike and it drives me insane.

    True, but sometimes the 'he swerved' is actually real. I see people weaving all over the road all the time, moving left into the traffic flow without even looking.

    I get bored sometimes, but whenever I try to mix it up and take a different path, I end up running into bigger hills, lots of potholes, or more traffic. Can't win..

    Exactly. They're hypocrites. Not to mention, in my daily commutes, I see more cyclists actually obeying traffic laws than not. There are still people that ride like they have a death wish, but the...

    I've been reading the comments on ktla's facebook page some of the morning. Drivers don't really care, and of course, it's all our fault for being in the road anyway. Nothing new..

    I use raceblades. Sure, they don't fold, but I always check the forecast before I ride and if I need to, I can just clip them on and take them off when I get home. It rarely rains in so-cal, so...

    Earbuds are only unsafe if they're too loud. If anyone has used apple earbuds, they'd know that you can still hear almost everything around you when they're at a reasonable level. I can hear every...

    I just meant that I took it off after a month, during the break-in period. My Swift already felt great, but the Swallow was too ass-hatchety. I couldn't handle it.. :(

    I have a swift too, but I also have a swallow and it can more than support anyone that can ride the other saddles. The leather is thick and hard and not comfortable at all. (for me) I took mine off...

    Those types of roads are the best from my experience. Two lanes, not much in the way of hills so it's easier to ride fast. I find that motorists seem less annoyed on those compared to smaller one...

    The warm weather is a love/hate thing for me. Love because I can ride in short sleeves again and it feels great, hate because I snowboard and the warmth is killing the snow in the mountains.
