    From everything I've found, I am permitted to ride on the shoulder, but I've never found a requirement to do so (since a shoulder isn't considered part of the roadway and motorized vehicles are not...

    It won't touch on my winter bike due to the handlebars and light mounts. I'm pretty sure my handlebars are wider than the pedals, too.

    It's probably the fact that I put kickstands on all my bikes. But I felt like I was missing something, and I hate knowing I have gaps in knowledge.

    Unfortunately, I forgot about my rear light mounts that extend from the side of the bike. I can't get the rear wheel to make contact with a wall. Either the light mount or the fender hits first. ...

    That's what we do. If it's just me and one kid, I tend to ride nearly beside them, and we go on less traveled roads than I would typically ride on. Both kids are old enough that they understand how...

    I clean it off every spring, and if there's a thaw in the winter. I use friction shifting, and keep everything oiled as well as possible, so the performance doesn't change significantly over the 2...

    What don't you get about my statement? I find bikes quite regularly for $20 or less.

    This thread seems to indicate I'm just incapable of the simple task of leaning my bike up against a wall.

    As for pics, it's put away in the loft of my garage not to see daylight until spring. I...

    After a few weeks in the summer, my wife tells me to take a long ride. It keeps me more balanced for a while. Winter is tougher, since the exercise bike / trainer doesn't do the same thing for me.

    I try to clean my bike about once a week, but I don't always get to it. I buy beater bikes for the winter so it's cheaper to replace the bike than individual components. They last about 2 years.

    Really, this isn't a practical issue since most times I lean it against a post or something that I lock it to. However, for at home storage, it...

    I agree.. but I feel like I'm missing something with the non-kickstand crowd. Granted my fixie has a kickstand, front brake and mirror.. which I would imagine many people would find objectionable.
