    I also think that cyclist controling the lane when they don't need to also leads to resentment. As a driver, I certainly get frustrated...

    So we need separate facilities for cars, for bikes, for pedestrians, for rollerbladers, for joggers, for e-bikes, for segways... Eventually I see issues with so much land devoted to transportation....

    If you aren't carrying a lot of crap in the car, the easiest thing is to just take off the front wheel and throw the bike in the back of the car. (I've actually put a bike in the passenger seat of a...

    Why are you liberals so peeved at earning money through willing voluntary exchange? The only way that multibillions can be fraudulantly earned by 'private' parties is by using the coersive force of...

    Once you've decided to buy, you should have a discussion with the shop about trading out things like seats and stems. Certainly the shop should adjust stem angle on adjustable stems, stem height and...
