    Technically, you're not forced to drive when bicycling you're just restricted to local roads and not allowed on state roads. You can ride your bike, you just can't go anywhere motorists want to...

    You have a good list for an American commute; my suspicion is that since these bikes aren't popular here you may have to make minor changes or give up a feature or two. The Dutch bikes I've seen...

    (1) Rack design
    I strongly prefer racks where the brace is extended in the back; many have small triangles to be light and cheap, but most bags will flex and periodically get caught in teh spokes. ...

    If I hadn't seen similar behavior (without so many accidents), I'd wonder if this could be true, but I've seen it too. I used to go on some group rides in Philadelphia where riders regularly rode...

    I also was annoyed when the tiny tubes in the patch kits would dry out. I've gotten a can of vulcanizing fluid (rubber cement) at the auto parts store. It seems to be fine even after a few years. ...

    I'll bite. I'm in DE and SE PA, where we do have snow and ice. The resistance is to infrastructure designed for pedestrian speeds (door zone lanes, right of RTOL lane), not resistance to paths that...

    I think it is more complete incredulity that bicycles can be ridden in traffic rather than deliberate malice, but I still don't like being told I would be at fault in right hook or left cross...

    The whole point is that it's costing money to buy these signs and install them. If DelDOT stops using them, it will save money compared to adding more signs that do no good and occasional harm.

    They are door zone bike lanes. If it were a RTOL lane, bike lanes are typically painted into the gutter. (possible photo tomorrow)

    John Gault,

    If you're puzzled by Delaware, good luck understanding the bike lanes and entrances to I-76 in Philadelphia.

    I'll add another endorsement for the Nokian W106 tires.
    I bought a pair after looking at Peter White's website - he recommends these for paved roads with periodic ice. Winter falls on ice or turns...

    I agree that changing FRAP laws is not a battle I would choose right now. Once any changes are proposed, other changes are often introduced in the process that are as bad as the problem being fixed....

    The only problems I've had in Delaware are:

    1. Motorists don't know or care about the exceptions
    Motorists believe FRAP includes sidewalks
    2. Many police don't know the exceptions

    Can you connect them to any of the old generators, either bottle generators or dynohubs?

    A few years ago a bike shop tried to tell me that the old dynohubs didn't put out enough power (I questione...

    I think you'll get much more than another 11,000 miles out of this bike if you want to. If the 11,000 miles is since 1999, that sounds like a little under 1,000 miles per year commuting.

    I had...

    Bicyclists may not be universally reviled among motorists, but they inspire more passion among a few motorists than other slow traffic. I've had the most vigorous profanity shouted at me to get out...

    The panniers won't be a mistake. If there is a mistake, it will be if you already cheap rack. This is not a big mistake and is not necessarily expensive to fix.
