    Where do you live? Do they punish motorists for hitting pedestrians or bicyclists where you ride?

    I've yet to see these well designed junctions or bike lanes. Locally bike lanes go all they...

    I don't know if Bicycling's magazine uses the same criteria as LAB, but my understanding is that LAB considers official policies, and designated facilities, but does not attach much weight to...

    I think you are over generalizing. While I would not want to ride a bicycle on the Washington Beltway (I-495; bumper to bumper at 70mph), locally there are many roads with 25mph speed limits...

    I'm not sure what behavior patterns you have in mind, but I would suggest all of the above - consequences of bad driving and uninformed journalists

    Yes, consequences of erratic driving are...

    I have 2-3 Tourists, and they all seem to come with larger chainwheels (48T) and smaller sprockets (16T) than the Sports models. With the larger wheels, the Tourists come with incredibly high...

    Forcing the engineers to use the facilities they design is a fantasy of mine, but I don't see it happening any time soon. B. Carfree's point is critical.

    I've run across at most 2 state...

    I agree with the other posters - additional comments:

    If you do not already have one, get a white headlight. (OP only mentioned red flashers.) The headlight makes it much...

    I saw the specs for the folding bike (20" wheel, 48T sprocket, rear 14T-28T).

    This would put 6th gear at 68.5 gear inches (48T/14T x 20"), and 5th gear a little lower (60.0" for 16T cog in 5th)....

    I wouldn't hesitate to buy a ladies bike if the size fits you better. A few people may (or may not) give you a hard time but a bike that's too big is not good.

    For gearing, the rear sprocket on...

    Sounds like a good reason not to get folding bike - the hinge on the eBay bicycle doesn't look like the most rigid, but I doubt you'll notice the hinge (or the weight) for a 2 mile ride (or even a 16...

    Is there a reason you don't just get the bike in the eBay link you provided?
    You said it is similar to your last bike that performed well for you, and is well within your budget (i.e. may leave...

    How long does it take you for the cans to dry up?
    I had the same thought as estanyc (box of 100 patches, vulcanizing fluid/rubber cement from auto parts store).

    It depends on the expected trip method. I think in the midwest driving is most common, so people assume you're going to drive. In NYC, this may not be the case, so people will often tell you how...

    So if it's personal experience it's speculation and doesn't validate the point; if it's other people's experience it's conjuring from internet bloggers and doesn't mean anything.

    End of discussion.

    Kickstart,

    Your Robin Hood is far nicer than my old Robin Hood was.
    Did it come with the chain case, or did you add it?
    Is that a pump or a battery case on the top tube?

    I'm missing something here.
    (1) if you work 5 days per week and have 2 weeks vacation, 1,000 miles per year is only 2 miles each way. Most bicyclists can do this in 10 minutes, and it's probably...
