    Cost is the #1 reason. Not having to participate in the daily rat race that is driving and parking is another. Laughing at co-workers when they complain about parking fees and who is going to get...

    Actually a Traffic violation is a criminal act. By definition a criminal act is simply an act that is against the law. I have to question your quote here.

    In places where bicycles and cars mix, the speeds are low. The higher the speeds the more extreme the separation. On a lot of them, the protection is a slight curb, which works fine.

    Even our mayor is guilty as she eliminated the pedestrian and bicycle coordinator position 2-3 weeks ago, stating The “goals have been reached”. What goals? I was unaware that we had cycle tracks...

    The goals look commendable, but the actual project itself looks silly. I was actually unaware of this campaign.

    Always! Both cyclists and drivers. When a bicycle rider runs a red, or a stop sign, they make all bike riders look bad, thus are doing harm to me. Plus it's against the law and we all have the...

    Both parties were at fault here. A turning car must yield to any and all cross traffic, even speeding traffic. That's not to excuse the cyclists behavior though. So in my view the driver would carry...

    When Advocacy goes too far?

    Just thought I'd post about how I feel advocacy can go too far, to the point those pushing their goal can be blind to the truth. I Live in Omaha, Ne and we have several bicycle advocacy groups. Now I...

    Outside of a racing bicycle, there is no need for presta valves. They were designed for skinny racing wheels. Your average commuter style bike will have a 700cx35 tire which can accommodate a...

    I second the use of Velcro. I use it to hold an Emerson Bluetooth speaker to my bike. Works very well.

    I would have to disagree with DiabloScott this time. A "flat foot bike" as you put it, is the perfect bike for someone new to cycling. It will allow them to stand up and over the bike without having...

    Seems silly to me. It's a waste of space. Only allowing a handful of bikes to be stored where before you could park many more. Not only that, but you only need one lock to properly lock a bike. You...

    Motorcycle stereo anyone?

    Just wonder if anyone has used a motorcycle stereo on their bike before? All I have found are 12v but I wonder how many actually use an internal regulator to step the voltage down to say 6v, which is...

    What DiabloScott said.


    I also agree their suggestion of bike to get. You WANT a more relaxed upright bike. You don't end up with a sore back and have far better visibility(and you can relax,...

    I would go the trek route but only because the other has shocks, they are 100% unnecessary outside of bumpy mountain biking. That and if you ever want a front rack or basket, you can basically forget...

    Looks gimmicky to me. That rack is not going to be strong enough to carry a full load of groceries, not by a long shot. It's also more of a racing style bike from the build and not an upright bike.
