    We've discussed Idaho Stops before. There are reasonable arguments on both sides but I still strongly oppose Idaho Stop laws in any place you might reasonably see a pedestrian.

    Ahh, right, I keep forgetting you're at FCC. Aren't prepaid plans terrible deals they can force on you because they assume you have crummy credit or else you'd be on a regular plan? Also, we're...

    I still don't think Verizon will let it on their network without a data plan, but I could be wrong.

    Good luck getting a phone without a data plan. I'm pretty sure Verizon won't let you do that, though other carriers might.

    If the average person spent as much time exchanging bodily fluids with people who have Ebola as commuting in a car, then Ebola would totally be the number one killer.

    I didn't see that. The biggest problem I had was groups riding 8 wide at 11mph.

    The Five Boro Tour has been discussed in other threads, but it's kind of a mess. It's totally worth doing once, but more as a way to see the city than as a bike ride. Parts of it are painfully slow...

    I certainly didn't feel safe riding with them in traffic. But I've seen people in traffic with much more ridiculous bars. As for style - all other things being equal, I'll pick the one I like the...

    I thought we were worried about exceeding capacity on Metro and not being able to expand in the core. Isn't this a GOOD thing? I mean, no surprise that they can't manage a budget. And also, as...

    I thought about bullhorns, I just don't like the look, and I'm not sure they offer any hand positions I don't have now.

    If the compact drops effectively shorten your stem, that sounds like a...

    So I'm having some difficulty finding bars I'm happy with. I got some track drops that look really pretty but just don't work for me.

    FREEZING SADDLES. This is THE competition. It is perfect because:
    1) You're on a team of people, many of whom you already know.
    2) It's handicapped, so you aren't directly competing with crazy...

    The article doesn't mention it (because, really, journalism is HARD) but they're drawing conclusions from statistics in a vacuum. I mean, between 9pm and 3am is a dangerous time to be on the road for...

    Not to mention that biking makes me happier and more relaxed. Driving makes me want EVERYONE TO DIE.

    Latin is dead, and clearly for good reason, so I won't disparage it (further). English is alive and kicking and has really earned the criticism.

    Sounds like that guy needs a shrink, not a jail. I mean, he should definitely be off the street so he can't steal any more bikes, but at some point it starts to sound like a mental health issue, not...

    That's the kind of language that ends conversations before you can show the skeptic how great biking is. And I don't think owning a car is unethical. I think living really far from everywhere you...
