    I can say from experience that I move almost the same speed on a mountain bike with street tires as I do on a road bike. I'm sure there's a difference, but it's hardly noticeable.

    If someone is clearly trolling, or breaking rules over and over, you could ban that person (or people). Wouldn't that be better than punishing all the good people with arbitrary censorship?

    I'm in the middle of making myself a set of fenders -- you just can't find good full fenders for a 29" x 3" wheel. An english wheel would be nice, but I can make do with a brake press and a shear. ...

    I've never tried downhill racing, but there's a local ski hill that allows it in summer. For trail riding, maybe it's just a matter of experience. And having 29" wheels is part of it too -- on my...

    A matter of balance

    It seems like most tires out there are varying degrees of trade-off between rolling resistance and cornering. But I'd rather go all out on traction, even at a high cost in speed. If I got into...

    If we were all more disciplined about what we post, I don't think this subforum would be very busy.

    I'm pretty optomistic about what autonomous cars can and will do for road safety. Currently, two big obstacles are money and liability. GM doesn't wanna get sued by me because I got hit by one of...

    Actually in the last day or two, I've found numerous websites and all the information I could want. I'm pretty sure now that I want a delta trike. Just have to decide on a brand, and how much I'm...

    I just finished some long reading, and there's more to this than I thought. First I have to decide if I want a bike or a trike (delta trike would be better in my case). A bike would have more speed...

    The more I look into recumbents, the more I like them. My intended purpose for this bike would be long rides between cities, carrying a small load (as much as a small backpack). And for this, a...

    Maybe a recumbent

    Just recently, I got rid of my road bike. After fifteen years as a hardcore roadie, it was hard to let go. But not as hard as paying the repair bill on that thing. It just ad too much wrong with...

    I always viewed studded tires as a liability. There is never more than one or two days of the entire winter that I ever have to deal with ice. But last year, once was all it took and my tailbone...

    Ok, so the riding group was wrong to stand around where people were trying to get through. And the OP was wrong to be angry and terse. So far so good, right?

    I feel a bit conflicted on this one. A little politeness goes a long way in a group. But sometimes a jerk just needs to be called out on his behaviour.

    So it'll act as a de-facto ban on cars. That doesn't sound bad at all, as long as we're nice about it and give cars somewhere to go.

    Don't underestimate the power of the homing instinct. Almost all people will put in more effort on the way home, without even thinking about it.

    I'll be interested in seeing how Chicago's Argyle Street redesign works out. It seems counter-intuitive, but I guess that doesn't automatically make it wrong.
