    You definitely are not alone. My wife didn't learn until in her 30s.

    This is my advice:

    I didn't see any threads about this, does anyone have any thoughts on this? I know Electra isn't a company really looked at by enthusiasts and hard core cyclists, but popular with those in the...

    I was just there last weekend, saw a Van Cleve in person. He showed us the hole where the last shop was before it was moved.

    I think one big question, what is it about your Giant that you don't like? Also, have you gone to the local shops and gotten a vibe of which one is most helpful/knowledgable? At this price point, you...

    Ant17r, watch the post dates. If the OP hasn't decided after three years, he's never buying a bike :)

    Skye misread it, so I think at this point he's on the same page as most of us. Really the only time we'll go two abreast on our group ride is when going through a construction zone and we want to...

    Maybe I'm just lucky, but the local cycling club has fast rides, slow rides and intermediate rides. On the main ride I do, sometimes I'm in the fast group, sometimes the slow group.

    All it takes to get a dinged up bike is a moron, with or without a kickstand. And the moron isn't necessarily the owner.

    But that can be changed in law, can't it? It wasn't until 1954 I believe that the final state in the lower 48 started requiring motorists to have a license. I'm not saying it should be, but nothing...

    Taking a hand off to signal needs to be mastered before attempting to use the bottle while riding.

    I can't find it, but I seem to remember a pro on a cheap bike racing an amateur on a high end racing bike. The Pro won. The bike certainly plays a part, but a lot of it is the rider.

    I am not a lawyer, but I do think that would be classified as "aggravated" vehicular assault, which is a felony. Glad he is OK, too many of these end up with more than a broken bike.
