I did this several times in succession.
I bought a steel bike and a titanium frame. I thought the only way to fairly compare the two was to use all the same components on the two frames. ...
Clipless. Every bike, every ride.
I like Shimano's A-520, single-sided "road/touring" SPD. They just work better for me than the double-sided MTB SPDs. (No doubt an operator problem.) My only...
Okay, got it. Not a lane position or marking problem. Just another JAM.
Not much you can do about idjits. Sometimes your best, which you seem to be already doing, isn't enough.
As scroca says, they probably forgot you were there. I never rely on a motorist's memory. I also never rely on a motorist to do the right thing. I force the issue to my favor.
I use lane...
Now we must discuss cages.
I'm thinking something carbon with just a hint of color.
Arundel Mandible in...
I can see how you'd think that. Lemme 'splain.
The post I was responding to was about those lubes labelled "wet" or "dry". For example, Finish Line. If you're using stuff like Finish Line, it's...
When I started out, I listened to the old-timers and used Tri-Flow. It's perfectly adequate, until you commute in the rain. I rapidly grew tired of having to re-lube daily. In winter slush, it...
Actually, that's exactly backwards. Use dry in dry, wet in wet.
I ride by the airport daily.
Nothing's fallen out of the sky, except that time I was shat on by a bird I flushed out of a berry bush. Purple bird schidt. Stained my hi-viz jacket.
That's the way I'm looking at it. And I shall enjoy.
Agreed. I think her current bike has some sort of gearing--maybe a three-speed? I dunno. But I do know she never uses it. So the first thing will be, when, why and how to shift.
Well she's living in Silver Lake outside Perry, so it's not like she's commuting to R-town. It's more for shopping and gettting around there. It's a modest climb from the lake to Perry, nothing for...
Since you asked, the cycling.
The company? Meh.
A) I'm an introvert, so alone is preferable to company.
B) I'm gay. So what you're thinking about a cabin on a lake with a woman? ...
I also like to use a different route home than the one I rode to work.
Variety is the spice, don't cha know.
I know, but that's what they ride in the city in the Netherlands. At a cadence of about 30. Fortunately for her, it's nearly as flat here, so it's not been a problem.
No and no.
It's one ride from point A to point B, spending the weekend, then another ride from point B to point A. Depends on your perspective, I guess.
And I've ridden out there before. For...
Yeah, I forgot to mention that this is the first weekend I've looked forward to all year.

And think of cycling on a nice day in sandals and a housedress. And no...
My bikes are my transportation. I got rid of my car in April of 1999. Thus, most of my cycling is done commuting—roughly 70% every year, whether you measure by number of rides, saddle time, or...
I have choices.
My direct route, which I use only in inclement weather, is 4.5 miles and dead flat. The average is 25 feet per mile, but most of that is on the bridge over the river.
I think you missed the joke.
His bike refuses to wear one. Geddit? ;)
I haven't shopped for one in several years, so I can't make recommendations of specific makes and models. There are dozens, if not hundreds of them in your $25-$95 price range.
But the basic...
You know? Red looks good on you.
One of these days I'll have to get up to your neck of the woods.
Tell Suzanne I said hello.
:roflmao2: Laughing too, but I'm not old enough to be a hippie. Real hippies have ten years or more on me. I was still in grammar school--and sporting a parent-mandated brush cut--for Woodstock.
