    I was thinking along those lines earlier too. I see no way that mandating driverless technology is going to fly politically, especially with already-made cars. The cost of a conversion kit just has...

    One more thing: This article waxes on about how the amount of cars on the road could increase with this technology. Excuse me, not going to happen. Certainly not for any kind of long term, and it's...

    Here's something else to chew on: certainly, driverless cars aren't going to replace all existing driver cars at once. Common sense dictates that the driverless cars are going to obey traffic laws....

    I like my S2L (steel) circa 2011 real well. I'm surprised to hear some people say they are slow. I can really move on mine in the small cog. I have the firm suspension. The ride is smooth and the...

    Too much for me! I'm quite satisfied going 25 MPH with my eZee motor, and I have parameters limited to 480W and 10A. Even this seems a little edgy at times.

    +1. One would think doing this would be less complicated than having an entire automated control system. My only concern here would be braking so sudden and hard as you describe - I could see that...

    Pray tell just what I typed that was exaggerated. As long as car crashes remain the #1 killer of young kids through adults in their 30s, I'll continue to call the distracted driving that is...

    I'm actually kind of jealous that the guy "threatened" to call the cops. I wish that would happen to me!

    "I'll call the cops!!11"

    Me: "OK, go ahead. I'll wait right here."

    I think it...

    Put more simply: it doesn't much matter where the ultimate responsibility lies because there are are too many irresponsible drivers. What really matters is the number of innocents being injured or...

    The bigger question is: does it matter? People are already totally irresponsible. Even in my walkable community, there's plenty of drivers zooming around with total disregard for the people that are...

    I am curious as to why the cranks had to be replaced after just a little use.

    It would be helpful to know the circumstances of the breakage. In any case, if the chain has more than 1% stretch I would replace it.

    I used a method similar to that in post #8 to drive a pin out - once. It involved laying the bike on its side, putting a small-diamter pipe underneath the chain with the pipe sitting flush on the...

    So a good middle ground for the OP might be simply to just swap out what he's not happy with, one thing at a
    time. In the case above it sounds like swapping out the crankset with one with larger...

    I'm still surprised that I don't see more bikes that forgo the front der.. There's a good amount of SS/FG bikes, and plenty of bikes that use 2xY or 3xY, but I've seen just one for sale that is a 1x9...

    I like my Park PCS-10 real well. It's plenty sturdy, and easily enough portable if I need to do so.

    If you really wanted to murder shouldn't you be stabbing the things with a knife?

    Seriously, I've never heard of this before.

    Good to know. Maybe it's only the thin tubes from Specialized that suck (I think they were actually made by someone else).

    I've never had problems with the hub shells themselves, just the cones. Oh, and the freehub body on my road bike - I didn't worry about the hubs on the road bike because I was told they had cartridge...

    I'd like to hear how you like that DT 350 front straightpull hub. I've been thinking of getting one. I like the idea of not having to overhaul loose-ball hubs all the time (for whatever reason, my...
