  1. All negligent homicide...

    All negligent homicide is a misdemeanor in Ohio. The same applies to drivers. It becomes a felony when the driving is reckless, the driver was drunk, or a number of other factors.

    Thanks. The difficulty in removing the wheel is one reason I want tough tires. I had the, Schwalbe Marathon Plus. I might upgrade to the Supreme.

    The LBS says they can do the roller brake with this. I'm leaning toward that. I don't want disc brakes because they have less room for error as to adjustments. If the roller brake doesn't work, I...
  4. Versa Alfine Shifters (LHT build up)

    Bad news: My Surly Cross Check commuter was stolen. I'm mostly over being ****ed off. Now, I'm looking at next steps.

    Good news: I'm probably going to build up a Long Haul Trucker frame with...

    The explanation of the cop sounds mostly reasonable--eight total riders ticketed, all of whom supposedly blew the sign without slowing. We cyclists need to pick our battles, and defending scofflaws...

    Poll: The Ohio Bike Federation...

    The Ohio Bike Federation got a law passed here that eliminates the points, except for drunk or reckless cycling. The state patrol insisted on those exceptions. Cyclists still get fined like...

    As to Alta Planning, we're talking about closing rec centers and firing police and firefighters, but Columbus paid them a quarter million dollars to get make us eligible for a "bike friendly" award,...

    Why? If you can't stripe a safe bike lane, you don't have to stripe one. In Columbus, we will soon have sharrows on High Street (the central North-South street). The City couldn't stripe a safe...

    This is the problem. This is why we have unsafe bike lanes. A door-zone bike lane is worse than no lane at all. At least then it would be harder for a cop to say that you belonged in the door...

    The person could also have heart or lung problems that make it dangerous to do even moderate exercise. That said, Cephy is right that a few people probably use a chair who don't need it. People in...

    I hope this was sarcastic. In isolation, the ad is somewhat ambiguous, but it wasn't run in isolation. Chase was catering to us. Let's not slap them on the hand. Someone else pointed out that he...

    [Edit: I see Kuan's point in Post 9. I misunderstood because I just scanned it. My mistake. The writer is calling for registration to give cyclists money and to force people to use all modes of...

    I agree as to lights when other vehicles (including bikes) need lights, but any penalties should be so small as to be mostly symbolic. I'd rather see the town give away $10 white and red blinkies to...

    Given the context of the WaMu takeover the other healthy-lifestyle ads, I think this clearly meant as a compliment.


    Probably true. I'd add that we need to save the outrage for companies that...

    many people go to the gym for an hour a day, so a ride that would take you an hour to an hour and a half sounds like a good work out, especially if you can put the bike on the rack for the trip home....

    What in the picture makes you think that? To me, it looks like a guy in bike clothes with a decent bike carrying it the way an experienced cyclist would carry a bike.

    I admit that the ad is...

    If there's anyplace it's OK to rant a little about an anti-cyclist ad, it's in the advocacy section of a message board for cyclists. That said, I don't see how the ad is anti-cyclist.

    You're right, except that in many places (Oregon, for example), once a bike lane is striped, we lose the right to use the roadway (unless we can convince a non-cyclist cop, a non-cyclist prosecutor,...

    Unfortunately, some places (Portland, for example), once a "bike lane" is built, we lose the right to use the rest of the road. So cars don't "tolerate us in their lanes." As I said in my first...

    If an ordinance gives wheelchair users the right to use bike lanes at their whim also includes a provision expressly saying that cyclists can use the road instead of the bike lane at the cyclist's...

    Mauriceloridans,
    I stand corrected on Louisiana law. I stick by my point that if you know you have to ride to get someplace, you shouldn't have anything to drink. Period.

    One problem is that MUP's in the US pretty much never have the right of way when they intersect with roads. When I'm on a main road, I have the right of way more often than not, so I can legally and...

    If I have even one beer after work, I put the bike on the front of the bus and and let the bus driver take me home. If that's not an option, I just don't drink at all. Cycling isn't rocket science,...
