    I'd love to get a belt drive bike for commuting, but I'd want something with drop bars and road-ish geometry since my commute is relative long, with lots of space to ride fast. But such a bike seems...

    It's *possible* that the existing cut-less curb that dumps directly from the Case Bridge path to the circle will stay, but they will be adding ADA-compliant ramps across the median at the top of the...

    I think they charge huge "rebalancing" fees if you leave them in an unapproved zone.

    Rapha gets a lot of hate, but their gear is phenomenal. I generally don't buy their stuff full price, but for quality, fit, and aesthetics it's worth the premium if you get it on sale. I like going...

    395 and the feeder roads I passed were pretty gridlocked this morning. Other traffic was Friday normal.

    Work continues apace on the sidewalks on the NW corner of 9th/Maine, but there was too much traffic and too many workers around to stop and take a photo. I'll see how it looks tonight when it's clear...

    I would just caveat that by adding you probably shouldn't just say "my bike needs a tuneup"...I think even good shops will just give you what you ask for in that situation. If you can point to a...

    They are working on these exact fixes literally as we speak.

    This is from last week:

    I suppose that could be viewed as an advantage for the dockless bikes, since they don't need to be locked to anything. But I worry that they'll just get left laying in the middle of streets and...

    As you've seen, the G-One 35s are what I run, and I commute on the C&O almost daily. They are very fast and extremely comfortable on the towpath. My foul weather bike, which I also use on the towpath...

    Silly...everyone knows that the Gallows bike lane is there to store all the gravel FFX puts on the road itself during the winter.

    I have thoughts...not coherent thoughts, but sort of vague outlines of thoughts about this, and they are mostly dark and negative.

    Wasn't there a BAFS event or something there once? I seem to remember it being sub-optimal for a big bike group.

    Edit: I am fully aware that I'm only identifying problems and not solutions.

    Weird. I'm a big fan of Chain Reaction Cycles, so I'll endorse your post (although that is literally meaningless).

    28s generally would be perfectly fine. But if you're riding within a couple days of a decent rain, you might find the trail slow-going in places where it's more muddy and sandy, and find yourself...

    This. These are actually pretty easy to remove and clean, but spraying (I use spray lube, it's just easier...) or dribbling some lube in the center will generally do the trick.

    Hard to imagine someone 5'6" fitting comfortably on a 56 (the Bosanova appears to have a 560mm effective top tube) but I've seen some weird combos where people claimed to be 100% comfortable. I'm...

    Saw Judd at 14th St. bridge AGAIN...this time as I was riding past the offramp on Basin. I may have to alter my commute route and/or schedule if this keeps up.
