    I bet you could mount a set of golf clubs on a tag-a-long with some brackets and bolts from your local hardware store. It would be narrower and easier to store and lock than a 2-wheel trailer.

    The S300 looks a lot nicer. And I like that the GXP does not have the open space around the spindle (where you put the tool to remove the bottom bracket) to collect dirt and grime. But will it alter...

    I ride my brakes down hills all the time. Sometimes because I am pulling my daughter on a tag-a-long, sometimes because I am riding a fixed-gear bike, sometimes because it is freezing and I do not...

    After the first shoot, a lawyer said "Everybody is wearing a helmet, but it just isn't helmety enough. Maybe if we showed people putting on helmets instead of riding?"

    I am the same way with bikes as my grandfather was with hatchets. He had one hatchet for 70 years. He replaced the head 4 times and the handle 23 times.

    If you really do drive fewer than 2000 miles a year, you could get a 25+ year old car and get historic insurance. (Limitations vary by state and provider.)

    Good Lord, why would anybody drive a car in a city like that?

    As far as the cinematography, I would rather hear what the camera mic picked up than your music selection. (If I wanted to hear music...

    In case anybody is trying to extend theories for where the best tire should go from 2-wheeled vehicles to 4-wheeled vehicles or vice-versa, don't. The vehicle dynamics are very different.

    That fork does not seem to have tabs for a front mount rack. I would not try to rig something up on a CF fork. Either get over your hangup or buy nashbar's $50 steel fork and mount a rack and...

    I had a guy break off his passenger side wing mirror on my elbow. If he noticed he did nothing to indicate it. Some people simply do not pay attention.

    I mean that I have one U-lock that I use for whichever bike I am riding at the moment. I would have to buy four locks instead of one if the locks are attached to the bike.

    My u-lock sits in my pannier and stays clean. A lock attached to my fork would get wet and dirty, which would then make my hands dirty when using it.

    It seems only marginally easier to use than a...
