    Theoretically, I'd agree. Practically speaking, no city has that sort of funding any longer and that's not likely to change in the near future. It would be nice to rebuild everything and correct...

    Traffic calming works well in lower traffic areas. With higher traffic volumes, it creates gridlock. Lines of stationary cars spewing tons of pollutants is not a desirable result.

    In my experience, those folks won't pass with a wave either. I stopped trying to communicate with them.

    Otherwise, I generally use lane positioning, but will signal when twisty conditions warrant...

    I ride with my wife a lot. I just spin a bit faster and ride a bit slower. It's really not difficult. And I enjoy the company.

    I ride vintage, so I have to go with LED lights (and rechargeable batteries that actually work).

    Segways may be the base for the robotic soldiers of the future. The earliest versions of most technologies are clunky and expensive and fall short in a lot of unanticipated ways. But someone has to...

    Can't leave Kai Ryssdal out of the name game. He does have a great voice for radio though.

    I don't have a lot of dog problems, but the only one who scared me a bit was a silent chase type. Some kind of bull dog who came out of a yard next to me. We were both going downhill with a 3 to 4...

    I have a CycleAware and I like it. At one point I reinstalled it after re-taping the bars and I had some issues with it moving. I took it apart and installed it again and the problem went away. ...

    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...

    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.

    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.
