    Both good routes. You can be assured that traffic is very light on all roads you picked, except Hwy 1 (Hwy84 can be busy on weekends). But Hwy 1 has very good shoulders. So, it'll be very good...

    My sentiments exactly. Didn't know about the cliff. I'm adjusting to becoming one speed. Decades of instinct take over when there's a rider in front of me and I reflexively want to catch him. ...

    I'm still riding, but on a recumbent now. The ride rhythm on a 'bent is so different than an upright road bike (fast on flats, slow on hills), I don't ride with a group anymore. Like Bostic, 99% of...

    Speaking of electric bikes, I just saw this all-contained electric wheel, designed to fit onto any existing bike and turn them into an e-Bike. Seems like a great idea!

    Given how small the rear hatch area is, the bike is wedged in nicely between the rear seat and hatch door. The saddle takes and bike bag absorbs any movement perfectly. So, no need to tie it down.
  7. New application for folding bikes - Electric cars

    I recently made the conversion to carbon free transportation - solar panels and full electric car. I got a Chevy Spark - an amazing car! Not just environmentally friendly, but also 0-60 in 7.5...

    We lost Pete - Taxi777. He was the spiritual "glue" of the group.

    The group drifted apart when he got hurt and had other problems. Stopped riding for a while and disappeared from here.

    Ugh. Sorry to hear this. I was one of the many, many beneficiaries of his SAG services. He was a legend.

    I went on this ride also. The wind was incredible. I was blown off the road 3 times, once into the other lane. Countless other "heart in the throat" moments. I've also never had to lean my bike...

    I used 11-28 with older 105s and they work fine. I used mine with compact cranks up front. Don't see any reason why they won't work with your triple cranks.

    Wow, that surprises me. My experience was just the opposite. The Brompton sits too upright to offer any kind of spirited performance. The Tikt allowed more of a road bike feel, in my experience. ...

    Haha! That would have been fun. I never thought about continuing the legacy through my son!

    I do miss that bike. It was so much fun to make and the memories with my son are priceless.

    I'll vote for a Tikit for your use. It rides very very nice, and will appeal to your inner "roadie". It folds extremely fast, and most importantly, pretty small. Here's a picture of it next to my...

    I'm a HMB resident also and agree with the last two assessments of riding on Hwy1 to/from Pacifica.

    One option that I've used is to ride to Pacifica, then take SamTrans bus route 294 over...

    Just to add another option - If you want peace of mind, you can catch a bus from Pacifica that takes you over the Slide into Montara. There's a nice bike rack on each SamTrans bus. Here's the...

    I guess no one here has been on the route. I'm going to assume the route is good enough.

    I will post on BROL to see if we can get some other folks to join us. Should be fun...
  19. Fast Century route - anyone been on this one?

    Doing a sub-5 hour century has long been on my bicycling bucket list. But with all the hills around here in NorCal, all local the centuries have too much climbing for me to consider even trying to...

    That's why I was initially reluctant to get the Automatix. However, after getting one, I find that when I need the lower gear, I just have to slow down, then it shifts into the lower gear. One...

    Yes, I agree. The bike on which I use the Automatix is just for pootling around, and the Automatix is supremely suited for that purpose. I have other bikes for more serious riding.

    I've had the Duomatic, S2C and am now using the SRAM Automatix.

    Love the Automatix. Shifting is great, braking works great (I've even removed my front brakes because I am totally confident of...

    Kam:

    My M6L fits into my F'Lite. The only thing I have to do is remove the seatpost. Then it drops right in.

    If you're looking for one, I'll sell you mine for a great deal. Only used once.

    I guess it's too late to wish you Happy New Year, eh? You've clearly started it in fine fashion.

    Love that Brooks saddle and matching bar tape.

    Now you need to bring it over here and our...

    I didn't defeat folder-itis. It defeated me!

    I retreated to recumbents. It's harder to hoard recumbents 'cause they're so much bigger!!!
