    I hadn't thought about that potential problem with retro shifters. I'm not used to thinking about the ergonomics of drop bars. I clearly need to start test riding some bikes. Trying to sort...

    I know you've already done a lot of looking, but to me it sounds like you may need to keep looking. For your riding patterns, the Quick sounds better, but ideally you could find something like that...

    I'm not entirely clear what I want in a road bike yet, but I do know I don't want flat bars or grip shifters! I'm sort of in the looking-at-everything stage. Drop bars might be good, maybe the Jones...

    I'm used to having my (grip) shifters and brakes right next to each other, so this makes a lot of sense to me. I'm not a fan of grip shifters, but I do like having my shifters and brakes right where...

    That's it! I've never seen thumb shifters on drop bars and didn't realize that they were basically bar ends located in a different spot. Thanks! Not sure what to think of this arrangement though. As...

    I have two bikes. A Giant Cypress with a sloping top tube that is at about the same height as the Buena Vista mixte made by SoMA and a Dutch-style step-through bike made by Achielle. For quick trips...

    I'm on a Cypress too. On a pretty flat (rail-trail) ride of around 50 miles or so, I'll average around 13 mph depending on winds, my energy level, etc. I could probably go faster, but I like rolling...

    Those are interesting. Where do your hands go during a climb? If you are out on an all day ride, do you spend most of your time on the grips, sitting pretty upright?

    I'm sure there will be rule breakers, but they have separated bike and pedestrian traffic into different lanes. With any luck that will help reduce bike/ped conflicts.

    Memphis, TN, where I live, has made some major improvements to biking and pedestrian infrastructure over the past few years. Here are some nice shots of the newly reconfigured Riverside Drive: 11...
