    I'm personally happy for motorists to err on the side of communication.

    Must be nice. ;) I don't know how warm my feet would be with all that, but I know my core would be soaked.

    It doesn't really affect my behavior, but it does scare me. I blame CN for contributing to the culture that concludes that nobody is ever responsible for a collision on the roads. And that culture...

    I don't know long your commute is, but mine is long enough that it's definitely in the danger zone in terms of actual physical risk when it's really cold out. I have trouble in general keeping my...

    That can't be it. I used to live near Tysons and 123 would gridlock several times a week because of jackholes entering the intersection before it was clear and getting stuck after the light change....

    I checked with Cortland Milloy and it turns out that's OK because motorists who are close enough to the intersection or who have already been waiting as long as they feel like have a constitutional...

    This is the appropriate behavior. Roads are for cars. Or trucks (unless they're in the way and a car wants to go faster). I don't understand your confusion.

    Probably not enough to make much difference. Depends on how modern the Giant is and how classic the fixie is. Worst case, you'd be able to use the front wheel, the seat, and the pedals.

    I don't think anyone has a problem with enforcement against that kind of behavior. I think the resentment arises because the "targeted enforcement of bicycles at stop signs" generally occurs at empty...

    The thing is, the one-size-fits-all flex bollard "solution" isn't very useful for a case where people are determined to drive their coolers in, either. Sounds like this is a location where a barrier...

    I'm pretty sure that we do have data that more people are injured in bollard collisions than auto collisions on non-motorized trails, that's why the federal guidance says not to spread them like...

    The threat model is also important. I regularly use a cable lock when I'm with the kids or running errands. It's a suburban area, theft rates are low, we're not going to be out of sight long, and...

    It may be a warning that even trucks that are normally allowed on the trail can't use that bridge due to weight restrictions.

    It fascinates me that NVRPA doesn't seem interested in improving pavement markings vs just dropping bollards around like fairy dust.

    Yeah, I get all that--what confuses me is when they say it can still fit 700c tires (which implies that they kinda still need to have made the trade-offs to fit 700c tires). Maybe it's a typo as...

    I'm pondering what, exactly, you need to do to a disc frame to make it fit 650b as an option to 700c. This sounds more like a brilliant marketing move than anything, and maybe just a wheel option if...

    Can someone educate me on why they don't just put framesaver on at the factory? Is there a set of cyclists that prefers rust?

    Rumor has it that ELITE cyclists can get even better prices because they can double-stack passengers in a full aero tuck.

    Then my fender doesn't fit. My kids' bikes aren't large enough. Bottom line: there's no way to make those wheel bender racks not suck. They should just be banned.
