    The cab was over to the far left of the lane (tires almost on the white line) and its four way flashers were clearly activated. To me, those two things meant that someone was either going to be...

    I had the same thought. In my mind, proper etiquette on a MUP entails not training on a MUP. With all of the children, dogs walking their owners, iPod runners who turn around without looking behind...

    I just finished building this bike up recently. It's a Giant RS930. I am not sure what its exact age is, but it's likely around 25 years old. I bought the bike (for the frame) to replace my 1991 Trek...

    I ride all year. As long as you have the right equipment, riding in the cold, snowy weather isn't too bad.

    I recently "converted" mine using drop bar bar ends; see this thread for more details:

    I was thinking about this yesterday! Personally, I would like it towards the top. I tend to review this forum first and then move on to the other more specific forums.

    Yes, those are only brake levers; they are not integrated brakes/shifters. I went with this setup because I wanted to use the parts I already had.

    I took it out for a quick 30 mile ride yesterday evening. I won't be making any adjustments right now, as everything seems to be pretty close. Shifting is a little odd, but it's easier than my down...

    The primary reason I went this direction with my hybrid is that I feel like I have a lot more control over a bike with drop bars. I'm also more comfortable on drop bars than I am on a flat bar.

    A Hybrid In Disguise.

    It has been a while since I've posted much about my hybrid here, a 2011 Giant Rapid 3. I've owned it since the spring of 2012 and have put several thousand miles on it since then. In the fall of 2012...

    You're not alone! I have been getting attacked by birds for the last few weeks while running and biking. It's a little startling when you're running/biking along and a bird flies into the back of...

    I don't see where you are going with your question. Comparing cyclists to pedestrians is like comparing apples to oranges. Pedestrians don't assert a right to walk down the center of a travel lane....

    I agree. So many people say "same road, same rules" and advocate for equal rights and access to the roads; however, many of those same people turn around and demand separate facilities. How one can...

    The shock probably won't do much.

    If it were my list, I'd swap the Giant Roam out for a Giant Escape. The Escape 2, 3, and City are all within your price range. I don't own an Escape, but my wife...

    Really? I run 28c tires on my 2011 Rapid 3 (it came from the factory with 28c tires as well) with full SKS fenders that are designed for up to 37c tires and there's plenty of clearance.
