    Tossing another option out there for flat pedal oriented shoes - I used the Five Ten Freeriders off and on earlier this year. They were better and lasted longer than the various Chrome shoes I'd...

    I was looking at those once upon a time (in case I ever move on from my large platforms with pins). Are those the earlier version of the PD-T8000 pedals?

    I thought it was considerate of the driver to stay in the lane (rather than take up the whole trail). I think I've seen 3 other drivers in the past six months at least attempt to turn onto the trail...

    I think that varies from location to location and whether it's on private vs. public property.

    For example: in DC, a bicycle is considered abandoned if it's locked up for more than 12 hours. From...

    It sounds like they just weren't quite ready yet when you got there. I rolled up just after 8, and by that point they had cold cans of the La Colombe draft lattes (in a bucket of ice), a tray of...

    Agreed - that's what we should've done/should do in the future. Things weren't too bad (crowd-wise) once we got off Hains Point, until the 395 entrance. We were sunk to start with when we...
