    Something like the IRD Defiant would look pretty sharp on that frame.

    Sugino RD2s are sweet too:

    I was sooooo close to pulling the trigger on the VIRB, but I think if I buy an action cam, I'm gonna hold out for a GoPro Hero 4. Quite a bit more expensive, but it has more features I'd want than...

    I really loved BikeDC, but my first time ended up being the last time the event was held. Frankly, it's ridiculous that the city shuts down for sooooo many other events, from breast cancer walks to...

    I've got bullhorns on my commuter and I like them a lot. I'll probably get some for my Cinelli too, just to mix things up, but I prefer compact drops for longer rides. Bullhorns are my top choice for...

    I noticed that too, but if it makes even some people slow down (why some people slow down for these signs escapes me...not like they can issue tickets) then I won't complain. Like I said, I think the...

    Well, it's not much, but I appreciate the sentiment behind the speed displays that went up today in Westover. I hope more comes from it...maybe speed tables on Washington Blvd?

    I would prefer they just provide bike parking...although I think only once have I seen a bike there other than mine. Lee Hwy doesn't exactly scream "bikes welcome here!"

    I can help out on Thursday. Thursday is a day off for me, and I have a bike trailer, so I can help with any setup/teardown work as well.

    Welcome!

    Lots of good advice here. Since you mention N. Arlington/EFC specifically, I'll chime in...I spent a year commuting down to Foggy Bottom from Westover (between EFC and Ballston) and...

    It's not impossible to remove a 1/8 cog with a 3/32 chain whip, but it can be damn near if the cog is on tight enough. Given the relatively low cost, I prefer to have the right tool for the job...

    Yes. There are some theoretical differences in efficiency and chainring wear (larger is better), but for all intents and purposes they are the same. Per bikecalc.com, below is speed (top row) and...

    48x17 (74gi) on the Cinelli, 46x18 (67gi) on my State for riding back and forth to class. I consider 48x17 a decently big gear for living in north Arlington, but apparently that's a recovery gear for...

    I have practically the same wheel config on my Cinelli (my rims are H+Son SL42s, but the hubs are the same Origin8s) and I run fixed/fixed (although of course you can run fixed/free on that setup)....

    Surprisingly, I didn't have any serious issues during the Tour of Richmond. I think it was a combination of just enough hills to keep me out of the saddle, and moving to better bibs (Rapha vs...

    The Hudson River Greenway is a fantastic ride, and well-suited to the speeds of CitiBikes. The only bridge I've ridden over on a bike (a CitiBike, actually) is the Brooklyn Bridge, and it was a total...

    Agreed. On longer hills I'm either a bit slower, or my fatigue level at the top is significantly higher (sometimes both) compared to running gears. On short hills, I can pretty easily absorb the HR...

    I wouldn't say riding fixed for long distances is easier, but for the not-particularly-difficult fixed centuries and longer rides I've done, it certainly hasn't made it harder. I'm curious how the...

    I think the biggest issue with this type of setup would be getting your chain tension right, since presumably you'd be running this setup on a bike with vertical dropouts. It's not impossible, but it...
