    The evidence was anecdotal, but that is evidence enough for me that it adds danger. It is fairly intuitive that even "dazzled" cyclists, whatever state of vision that implies, are a greater risk to...

    I think people are just different or you get used to lower light. I can see people, even non-reflective, quite far off in the distance. I likely have my lights angled up more / more even than you...

    I have witnessed a couple near accidents due to people being unable to see pedestrians, related to oncoming headlights. If you can't see in front of you, the only way to be sure you're not going to...

    I find 200-350 lumens is plenty. When it's full dark, I run the Lezyne at 200 lumens, when it's starting to get light, I drop it to 100L and when it's not really needed for trail illumination, I set...

    Yeah, agreed, you don't have to pay to ride a MTB into the park. And I have no idea why someone would ride a road bike in; riding on Georgetown or Old Dominion sounds ill advised.

    There at silver H+ Son Archetype rims; they are beautiful. I built a set for Lena awhile back. They only come in 28h or 32h drilling, but that is probably fine for your purposes....

    Hey, how did I get thrown into this? :) For the record, I "only" have 3 bikes with no plan/ability to add to that unless I also n-1. Space-constrained -- the brilliantly simple way to rein in my...

    Fixed that for ya.

    To be fair, there are clip-on fenders and the ones I have provide good coverage. But even though I leave them off a lot in summer, I still call that my rain bike.

    I have never encountered one of these; I don't think this is a real problem. And plenty of [conventional bicycle] riders can go 30+ mph; just look at Tim's KOMs! :)

    I would argue that once you get into a finer-grained distinction than a "see" or "be seen" light, the beam shape etc. really doesn't make any significant difference. Definitely not a difference that...

    Yeah, it's true; exercise is important. I don't think I would exercise for 2+ hours every day [if I weren't cycling], though. Or probably even 1 hour a day, if we look at just the extra time it...

    +1. My commuting by bike definitely limits how useful I can be -- how quickly I can get home, how easy it would be for me to "swing by" the grocery store [and still be home by 5:30], etc. It is...

    Took the day off to go for a bike ride with a friend; I don't really have time to do that on weekends, so this is a good use of vacation.

    Came down Berryville Rd for the first time toward the end...

    I love it! Is it red or pink (not sure in the light)? Live the new paint scheme, either way.

    I think I make the 14" last my son until he is 5 -- then onto the small 20", I think.

    The helmet looks too skateboardy for me, but the idea seems reasonable and price isn't too crazy -- as helmets go. I assume these are just be-seen lights, so I don't think there is any concern of...

    I would say that the shortest distance worth calling something other than a "bike ride" is a metric [century]. Though I wouldn't use a term like that for a ride unless I was describing a specific...

    It is probably worth spending a bit more on your wheels. A wheel only lasting 7-8k miles seems way too short. My last set of disc-brake commuter wheels were still just fine at around 12k miles before...

    I bought some Bolle double-wall ski goggles off of amazon that work pretty well. They have top/bottom vents, but they do still start fogging after 30-40 minutes on all but the coldest days. I...

    Maybe Matt can lead? I will refresh my memory from the link Tim posted, though, and am happy to try to pick through it. Otherwise, yeah! Though looking at the forecast, seems like late week.

    Personally I like riding through rutted snow in a tall gear (and with studded tires). I imagine this is similar to why it is recommended to use a big gear for cobbles -- easier to keep pressure even...

    I would definitely be in for this -- assuming early enough. I've ridden that trail exactly twice too -- that night ride around Halloween last year (probably same time as vvill).

    Yeah, too bad about EFC, but I'm happy at least that using bikeshare bikes to get to metro (or anywhere else) will be an easy option for my kids when they are old enough to fit the bikes.
