    Actually, that is not true, at least not in Minnesota. We recently had an interesting case where a woman got a DWI after hopping in her car to escape her seriously abusive husband. Drove the car...

    I sometimes wonder if my former neighbor ever dreamed that the Bianchi Nyala he tossed in the trash would be resuscitated and ridden for another 10,000 miles.

    For that price I could have a fleet of 60 bikes. Just don't have the storage.

    Yeah, but when you DO catch them, they blame it on last years equipment. Or not enough air in their pneumatic tubes.

    Those appear to be Dura Ace AX pedals. They will only fit on a Dura Ace AX crank. They've got over-sized pedal axles.

    Pneumatic tube systems are well over 100 years old. Kind of like the bicycle itself. Just because something is old, doesn't mean it is obsolete.

    Gerv,

    I strongly suspect there is no corporate policy forbidding bicycles in drive up lanes. Probably started by some teller asking some boss - "There's a guy on a bike in the DRIVE-thru lane! ...

    Have you used this light? Looks interesting. I like self contained usb rechargeables. I have a light and motion 400. Neat little light, but i could use more power and runtime.

    I still use a cheapo Costco light. But, they are cheap, and not so bright, so I use this little trick to increase both the output and redundancy by a factor of 6: :)

    Not even anecdotal - just imaginary. My point is simply that my first priority is to be seen. If the driver doesn't see me, they can't judge distance, apply brakes, change lanes, etc.
