    Sticky: Poll: This surgeon is talking about car vs bike...

    This surgeon is talking about car vs bike accidents, and in those cases helmets are largely useless. I worked for several years at a hospital in a resort area and saw plenty of bike wrecks come in. ...

    I don't have a fancy bike, but I have a rack. If I have to run to the store I just slide a basket on, or panniers and the New York lock with cable. If there's no bike rack and no place to tie up I...

    That's my way of dealing with them. Most dogs stop if you stop and I swear that a lot of them don't know it's a human on a bike. They get a sheepish look and come over wagging their tails for a pat....

    If you are going to go with an older frame, make sure it will take a 700 tire. The old 27 inches are around and they can be a headache for someone new to build. Honestly, it's cheaper to buy a good...

    I'd point you towards a hybrid. The MTB's tend to be very low geared reducing your road speed. The hybrids have a much wider gearing that works for varied terrain like you will have. The hybrids...

    I faced that same choice yesterday. I had the shop replace both the chain and the cassette, for a grand total of $51 dollars. No more skipping chain for a couple of years and the bike runs great.

    A very erratic work schedule. Some days it's night shift, others it's day shift. Some weeks 36 hours, others 50 or 60. Now if I had a regular 9-5, Mon thru Friday job....

    Yep, I'm with the OP and Wahoo. I have no idea how fast I'm going or how far I've gone and I could care less about STRAVA. I mostly head out to explore and see whats down the road and over the...

    I have a Trailway. Mine has never had any bb issues. Shimano 105 drivetrain, front shocks, solid aluminum frame. Put a solid seatpost and trekking bars on it along with lights, fenders, back rack...

    Why peel that stuff off? Take the bags off, slip the water bottles into their cages and go! I very much doubt that tree roots are going to be harder on a rim than concrete curbs. Buy a second set of...

    I've used one for about two years now. It works well with most dogs. The advantage is that it keeps the dog out from under the bike. If you use one, there are some things to know. Different dogs...

    Take a look at the Trekking handlebars too. They'd be easy to adapt on. Fenders, rack, lights, a pannier bag of some sort and you're good to go. On rough streets, you want to keep the bigger tires. ...

    Sure, you can do it. Take a bare frame, race oriented bike. SLIP one water bottle into cage, put on your finest Spandex and pedal like mad! Of course, without a rack and planners or any sort of bag...

    Exactly! That's why I'm usually a loner or once in awhile I'm out with a couple of like minded friends. Cycling, for me, is about exploring and having a good time and not about how many miles I put...

    That I don't know. Some of the pictures were taken on streets so crowded you'd have a very hard time riding a bike. Other pictures seem to have been taken during the hottest time of day. The bikes...

    Limited space and too expensive. Neighborhoods were small enough to be walkable with merchants that sold everything you needed right there in the neighborhood. Most of the homes were small or...

    Nope, not weird. Most folks think any of the elaborate carriages like that were hearses, but the hearses were black. The wedding carriages were white and not as long as a hearse (because you're...

    Amazing photos is right. I saw a fellow with a small, two wheeled cart with a trash can in the middle of the cart sweeping up horse apples. I can tell if the photo was on a warm day, as the old...

    Right. Until two individuals with one mutation marry, and both pass on a copy of that mutation to a son/daughter. That's what happened with me. I have two copies of both the Factor 5 Leiden and...

    I think I'd try that Brooks out long before spring IF you have a return policy available on it. I tried a Brooks B17 Imperial and really liked it for short rides of around 10 to 12 miles. However,...

    The steel framed bikes will still be around for a long time, simply because you can modify and repair them so much easier than aluminum. Don't get me wrong, my everyday/commute bike is...
