    Assuming you're working in the Irvine Industrial Complex around Spectrum you should be fine. Cars are probably faster than you are used to but the lanes are wider and the distances longer. You'll...

    To be fair, Isla Vista, CA has a lot of bicycles and beach cruisers, mostly because rent is high, parking is poor and its less conspicuous or less far to walk back if you're drunk, so it stands to...

    Laguna Beach to Dana Point via isn't too bad if its not during rush hour or the weekend. An alternative is from the Irvine Station and make your way to Mission Viejo, Laguna Hills and San Juan...

    I personally classify folding bicycles in to these subcategories:
    1. Bicycles that happen to fold.
    2. Mainstream folding bicycles.
    3. Experimental/near experimental folding bicycles.

    The only standard reflectors I have seen useful and prevented me from hitting someone were white wheel and red rear (which really should be a light). Front and pedal reflectors are so useless, I...

    Hopefully the missing link of the Santiago Creek is discussed. The area would be much safer for everyone involved.

    And this is why there is backlash. Because people like you realize not everyone is like you.

    I like that blog but I think the author also lives in Taiwan and can inspect and buy those items in person. The entire region isn't known for consistent quality control, which in my mind is what you...

    No, like literally there are no bike racks. Metal fences and street signs aren't the same as bicycle racks, and locking your bike to either of these is often illegal. Its the same thing if you are...

    I did present reasons why living car free is impractical for SOME people. Not everyone can live in a dense urban area. It's expensive, job limiting and mobility limiting should you lose your job. All...

    Why are you emotionally invested in this? There simply isn't a one size fits all and there are people who promote this or lord over other people because of it. I'd venture to say that a signature...

    In my opinion rack infrastructure (parking) is a significant deterrent to cycling in most places.

    If you don't have a car at all, then yes, but being absolutely car free doesn't add up in the cost benefit analysis for most people. If you need a car once a week, the cost savings is minimal since...

    Basic market forces. Car free isn't an economical option for most people. Unless you live in an urban area with half way decent public transportation or car alternatives (i.e. Zip Car), you'll still...

    that makes sense. i was just fielding the possibility of a Mu Ocho.

    hmm I just assumed that the mu uno had 7 or 8 speed spacing. but diameter isn't an issue? i.e. 20" wheels also have correspondingly smaller diameter hubs.
  17. Do 20" wheels require special sized hubs? Could...

    Do 20" wheels require special sized hubs? Could you theoretically trick out a Mu Uno with a 3, 8 or 11 speed hub?

    Not steep? I don't have a app or program but Newport Coast Drive around Pelican Hill is definitely steeper than Laguna Canyon Road past the 73. In sort of the same area, Laguna Beach is littered with...

    I rode in less than an inch of snow once and I don't know how you people back East get away with rim brakes.

    Road is relative. Supposedly they filled in the crevices that open every year since ice isn't static and I'd imagine clear a path through ice fields.

    You're correct, I don't use it, hence why I was trying to solicit a reason to keep it. Just trying to realize its potential.
