    Well, you could, but flipping a wheel is kind of a pain...I mean, it's easy enough in the shop, but on the road I'd have to be in pretty rough shape to even consider it. I run fixed on both sides...

    My Volpe was pretty upright, so I suspect yours is the same and you could go with a slightly longer TT and still be comfortable. Of course, you'll be in a more aggressive position, but I think that's...

    The beg button on the west side of the W&OD and Columbia Pike most definitely isn't working. And of course none of the people who line up on the east side have the sense or inclination to press the...

    As someone who walks the trails every day with my dog, I actually don't give a crap about people calling passes. For one thing, I have my headphones in, so I don't hear most of them anyway, but I...

    It was, uh, brisk riding home from class at 10pm last night, particularly since it was like 72 when I rode in at 4pm. Thankfully, I packed an extra layer, but it almost wasn't enough since the...

    You all should come do the Tour of Richmond next year instead (or this year, it's in two weeks)...police actually stop traffic at intersections to let bikes ride through unimpeded, and the lead group...

    I think close to half my class was late today, with several mentioning traffic on 66 being terrible. I don't think I did a good job concealing my bike commuter smugness.
