    They responded to my e-mail and asked me to send it back for a replacement (assuming it's one of the newer 31.8mm ones. It is). I'm gonna drop it in the mail today and hopefully get the replacement...

    Thomson stem has a crack in it

    The bike is at the shop getting some TLC after too many hours of riding in cold, hard rain. The mechanic called last night though to mention that my Thomson stem has a crack in it. I failed to ask...

    Wow! Hey, thanks for the futuristic advice! Fortunately, in the first 6 months of 2015 I'll be trying to complete the 2nd half of my R-12 from RUSA, so I'll get my share of long training rides,...

    At no time should a person in Washington DC, call Cancun "up there". It is down. It is south of us, and in this northern hemisphere-centric world, south is down. Exception - If Cancun was at a high...

    I focus on staying warm, rather than staying dry. Because I know I'll get wet, whether it's from rain or sweat.

    Rain repellency is never a bad thing, but waterproof just doesn't seem to exist in...

    Wodbine-Dillsburg brevet

    So I only took one photo, on the recent 200K. The weather was 30's-40's with light to moderate rain ALL day. Thus, I was hesitant to take my camera out to snap a photo of the wet, greyness in which I...

    South End of L'enfant Plaza

    Can anyone please tell me why there are absolutely no curb cuts around the circle on the south end of L'enfant Plaza where the Case Bridge trail connection intersects?

    It's highly annoying! I...

    I don't know exactly which ones I have, but they are Pearl Izumis. I had some trouble getting mine because I usually wear mountain shoes and not all shoe covers seem to work with all the extra cleats...

    Welcome to the fold! It's nice to see another Alexandrian (and even Maryland connection) on here. At times the forum can seem as though it really is just about BikeARLINGTON, but there actually is a...

    No that is a great suggestion. The Silver line wasn't open when I started this thread, but it is something that we could take advantage of to avoid some of the most congested, cross-street riddled,...

    It is great, but that's starting to stretch my ability for a door-door ride.

    Thanks for the tip though.

    I ride up there a bit too. I have a variable 110 mile loop that goes north from home and uses a mix of road and trail up to Lake Needwood, then I continue up to Mt. Airy, then turn west to Urbana,...

    I've done some searches on RidewithGPS, for westward road routes past Dulles, but not much comes up. I agree that Leesburg seems to be the limit of bad suburban sprawl, but it just seems crazy that...

    Dump trucks. They get paid by the load, so they will not slow down for anything. Even if that anything is you. They also seem to *think* they know exactly how wide their trucks are and despite being...

    Great story, but we have a long way to go before we even have civilized driving in some areas of the city.

    This morning on Suitland Road near the water tower at SFC, I saw (from my car) another...

    The Mount Vernon Community School in Del Ray is a pretty darn good school form what I hear. All the neighbor kids go there. It's also bi-lingual, so your kids would learn Spanish as well as English....

    To be thorough, I think I'd start with the highest point in each state.... You could do representative climbs, kinda like the spreadsheet below. It would be easy at first, but would ramp up quickly!...

    How about a U-lock to the head? That would solve this problem too. Who does he think he is? Some sort of counter-culture warrior out to beat the cops? He's just an asshole.

    Yeah, I'm really only talking about the roads. Dark MUPs and joggers are their own can of worms that I really don't want to open, because I don't think this forum needs another fight.
