    She is very dramatic, but it's a natural style that really works for me.

    I have to admit I felt somewhat that way, but then felt a bit guilty when I learned it was the result of a medical problem.

    But I love Ofeibea Quist-Arcton's voice.

    I'd wash it and use it if it didn't taste funny. Although without insulation (if they're the type I'm envisioning), I'd only use them for show from time to time.

    Can't say that I've found the voice to be notable. And she probably isn't responsible for the choice of terminology in what she's reading.

    I feel the same way. I ride vintage, but if I had to buy a new bike style would matter a good bit. I think many of them are ugly.

    I have the clothing for colder weather, but the reality is somewhere around 50F. And I'll bail well into the 50s if there's a cold north wind. I tried the 40s a couple times and there is indeed a...

    But one would if one were walking on a country road.

    But if you can't get agitated when your agitator won't agitate, when can you get agitated?

    I prefer the feel of DT friction, but I haven't really used STIs enough to get used to them.

    Reading this thread, I couldn't help but to think of all the waving threads. And wondering if there's a negative correlation.

    I'd agree with that. Around here, kids don't even wait for the school bus alone. There's line of cars they all sit in with a parent until the bus arrives.

    The majority of the males over 50 that I know have been diagnosed as being diabetic or pre-diabetic. I don't know if they've changed the standard (the cynic in me would say in order to sell more...

    I remember those early 70s ten speeds much more fondly. They may have been gas pipe frames, but they were very reliable and we rode them comfortably on many long journeys.

    Regular bikes are in the house. I have a spare bike on the covered screen porch and it's showing effects of the uncontrolled environment.

    When I drank a lot more alcohol than I should have, I got up to about 220. After I stopped drinking, I maintained at around 160 (until I started biking and dropped to 140). I replaced alcohol with...

    I wasn't trying to lose weight when I started riding and never changed my eating habits, but I dropped about 20 pounds in the first couple of months. I was actually a bit worried as I wasn't riding...

    I work at a university and often see students who buy a BSO, ride it to school until a tire goes flat or a pedal falls off (which seems not that uncommon) and then abandon it in the bike rack. I...

    I certainly can. Never had a problem while biking, but if I eat a few overly sweet cookies or cupcakes during the day, the sugar goes straight to my head and I get a 'sugar rush' that leaves me...

    You have to be wary of too much knowledge. I'm not an engineer, but have been in administration in an engineering college for a couple of decades. The average undergrad would be decent at bike...

    I don't ride to work often, but when I do I keep the bike in my office. It's not allowed, but I'm right next to an external stairwell and as long as I'm not wheeling it through the halls, I'm okay....

    I don't ride with one. I'm riding for pleasure and I'm not very fast. If I had a computer, I'd obsess over speed and fear I'd cease to enjoy the riding as much.

    On reflection, it occurs to me that Suzuki has just become a middle aged crank. It's actually a common occurrence we've seen play out before. Social commentary slowly turns into plain old run of...

    Have to echo everyone else who says don't accept the first diagnosis. I've had pretty bad heatstroke, but it paled in comparison to what you experienced.

    We road from Rochester to Letchworth as kids. It was challenging for young men on gaspipe tenspeeds. I can't imagine it on a dutch commuter.
