    I've wondered why they didn't brand themselves a bit better, to indicate who their intended customers were.

    From the outside, Freshbikes looked like any normal bike shop. One needed to go inside...

    First and only bump, I promise.

    Still looking for the elusive W. Bush-era steel mountain bike frame. Either frame or complete bike, but I'm looking to spend about $200.
  3. WTB: small or medium frame steel hardtail for 26" wheels

    I'm looking for a not-quite-vintage steel mountain bike frame, ideally early to mid-2000s, in a 16" or 17" frame size (S/M). Anyone got an old Kona or Jamis out there? A Bianchi singlespeed frame...

    I wore my UA 4.0 tights this morning but if it had been any warmer I think I'd have been uncomfortable. The compression+insulation of the UA 4.0 shirt sometimes gives me the...

    I'm dusting off this thread to report that I saw a Weehoo Venture on sale for 25% off last week and went for it. I'm really glad I did, my 4 yr old loves it. He lets out whoops, and asks to take the...

    Maiden voyage is tomorrow's commute, so will have first impressions soon. I got the Cazaderos mainly to max out my frame's tire clearance, for the slippery-er parts of the Fairfax CCT, and to see if...

    I like the Horizons a lot for the towpath between Georgetown and Great Falls. They really eat up the bumps. I recently got some 700x42 Soma Cazaderos that I think should also do nicely there, and...

    I'm talking about ambiguity in practice, not in law, and there is plenty of it.

    Of course advocates would like to call a vehicle with pedals that goes 28mph unassisted or with minimal rider input...

    I forget, did we ever address the issue of electric motorcycles? The lines between "e-bike" "e-scooter" and "e-motorcycle" are going to be blurry; even classes of current ebike are not very distinct....

    I see your point, but I personally don't feel comfortable endorsing or encouraging the mindset that faster is safer. It's the opposite. As Vicegrip has pointed out, crashing at 25mph without...

    The technology is really neat, I enjoyed learning about the sensors.

    It's a shame that to get people to buy e-bikes, companies have to make them capable of unassisted speeds that are...

    Yeah, that was my guesstimate -- in excess of 20mph. I mentioned this because I got the impression from NovaEBike's post that ebikes that can be operated throttle only (no pedaling) max out at 20mph....

    Who's up for a word problem?

    I've been trying to calculate the speed of the full throttle e-bike that passed me alongside the Pentagon Monday night. I guess it was Class 2, because the rider...

    I couldn't agree more. Lowering the speed limits or adding bike lanes to existing roads makes them safer for everyone. Widening MUPs by cutting down trees and paving over adjacent greenspace to...

    Did it just fall off while you were riding in the smaller chainring -- like the chain climbed up the chainring and fell off? If that happened, I'd say uneven wear on parts.

    If it happened when you...

    I get the point, but I don't recognize a need to build parallel safe infrastructure for people who simply want to go fast. Those who want to go faster on an e-bike -- or any bike -- can use the...

    I don't know that class 3 distinction is of great importance. Seems to me that speed limits are the real hangup for e-bike advocates, and 20mph (class 2) is still faster than 90% of trail traffic. I...

    I support more people on bikes. But if it takes turning a bicycle into a motorcycle to get people on "bikes," I have some reservations about turning MUPs into roads.

    I was using a figure of speech. Apologies. Let me put it differently. My best guesstimate is in 10 years, e-bikes will make up about half of the commuter bikes one sees on a typical commute downtown....

    Yep, that's the future. All of the big bike companies are betting big on e-bikes, and in 10 years, every other "bike" will be an e-bike.
