    Convince yourself that an imaginary cyclist is reeling you in and that if he catches you that you suck at riding a bike. This tactic really backfires if a real rider does actually catch and pass you....

    I am frustrated with this as well but you/we are not going to change anyone's behaviors. If the Police would more aggressively enforce the handheld cellphone law, it might help. The local paper posts...

    I put drop bars on my 1993 Timberline and love it as an allarounder. It could easily be refined into a tourer and would make a great one imho.
