    We could use a few more ice cream carts out where I ride. Then again, maybe it would be better if there weren't any :D.

    I did that early this morning - I was coming up on a trail intersection where I needed to make a right, and there were other cycllists coming up the other trail. I signaled out of courtesy so that...

    Grr.. On the way home, I cross an entrance ramp to a toll road, but there is a crosswalk clearly painted across the entrance ramp. When I get there, it was clear - I start to move, and then the...

    Left home at 5:30AM, had my short subway ride followed by my usual 11.5 mile ride. It was pitch black out when I started - when I first bought the headlights, I assumed I would only be using them in...

    I have a rack just like it that I bought last weekend. The tan stuff on the front is just paper that is taped around the metal rod -I assume to protect the paint. And I haven't gotten around to...

    First time commuting in a couple of years. The major thing that changed for me was that a Metro extension recently opened up, and by riding one stop I can cut my commute from 19 miles to about 11...

    Yeah, I had heard of that. I wasn't really sure how well it would work in this case. This was on a road bike tire where the normal operating pressure is just over 100PSI, and it just seemed like...

    The worst I ever had was a total tire blowout. Not just a normal flat tire (i.e. a hole in the tube), but the sidewall of the tire ripped open. Not at all patchable on the side of the road.

    Giant OCR2. I hadn't given much thought to different tires on that bike - clearly there are limits to what the frame and the rims will take, but I am not sure what they are.

    I can start by saying that I already have a road bike, and it doesn't work well for commuting. The skinny tires, in particular don't do well on anything other than decent quality pavement that...

    Yeah, I like Paris, but the final stage is always a huge bore to me. Most of it ceremonial - the only thing that is unknown at the start is who will win the sprint/stage at the end.

    So I guess there is no elimination time for the last stage? I guess there isn't much point really.

    Would the riders then switch back to a team bike when they get a chance?

    My old bike still has clips on it. Which reminds me - I need to go get some tools to remove them as I can't stand them any...

    The cameras are controlled by French TV, and not by NBC. What I don't know is whether NBC gets multiple feeds (one from each camera) and can pick which one they want to put on the air.

    I think it is more that riders like Contador will keep up a high enough pace that the other riders don't feel like they have what it takes to put in a credible attack.

    Actually I think it is the opposite. With the favorites gone, you have a lot of 2nd tier riders who might dream of capturing a place on the podium, and there could be a bit of chaos at the front as...

    I can get why not riding on the rest day might seem appealing. My understanding is that the problem is the day after the rest day. If they don't ride at all, they simply don't perform as well.

    I don't know how naive the kids were, but the kids probably knew that to be a "team player" one needed to bend over and take it - whatever it was.

    I can make the observation that this year is the first year where they seem to televise the entire stage. In prior years, they would come on the air after they had been racing for an hour or so. So...

    Years ago I had a problem with some channels that was caused by having the TV set for SAP sound, and that's along the same lines as having the thing set for Spanish.
