    Thanks for the heads up! I checked and I'm guessing it's an '84 Del Rey. Seems to match the components, plus that year has the Oak Green color and gold rims. ...

    Bike Locking Options

    I'm with pretty much everyone else. Light yourself up like a Christmas tree and ride defensively. I've found riding out a little further into the lane (not so close to the side) actually increases...

    Thissss x 1000. I know the allure of a sexy bike, but I also know what it's like to be broke. The last thing you want to do is sink all your money into a bike that's much fancier than you need and...

    Depends on where you live. In many areas, it's legal as long as you run facing the flow of traffic and don't interfere with the normal flow of traffic (aka you have to get out of the way if there's a...

    That part we can agree on. A bit of mutual respect and understanding goes a long way, but those two things are sadly lacking when it comes to transportation. I think a lot of us are culprits in that...
