    Their web page is somewhat misleading, as well. They say that a 700c rim has a "3:1 advantage" over an 8" rotor, which may be true from a purely theoretical standpoint (the rim is technically a much...

    Disc brakes are, in almost all cases, significantly more powerful than rim brakes.

    Its not an ebike, but I thought some of our ebike aficionados might appreciate my new alternative vehicle:

    dcv would say EVERYWHERE. :)

    It all depends on how comfortable you are without brakes. There are very strong riders (the aforementioned dcv is one of them) who ride brakeless fixies on long road...

    Yeah, I don't really find it that bad. The shoulders are generous. Its not scenic or anything (and there always seems to be a bastard of a headwind heading into Leesburg) but its not scary...

    From the town center, where democracy drive loops around by the ice rink, go across and then get on the path to the right immediately before the bridge. That path drops behind the bus station...

    Specialized seems to spend most of the money their customers give them on marketing and stupid legal bullying. The obvious solution is to stop giving them so much money. Seriously. Sure, they make...

    My dinotte 400L came with a myriad of mounts; one of them (I think designed for a seat stay) wraps around the tubus rack on my touring bike nicely. The dinotte and PB mounts are close enough that I...

    I bought one of the magicshine knockoffs to supplement my aging dinotte. It works fine. For the price its fantastic. I didn't get the wide beam (my 800L has the wide beam covered) so its...

    Not sure I'd listen to them, since IME their rides are the worst-led ones I've ever personally attended. :p

    The membership seems high, but honestly, depending on the quality and availability of their tools its probably quite reasonable. Places that the public has access to high-end...

    Other than the distance, thats not actually a bad location. Getting from Vienna Metro to the W&OD is not bad, and then the W&OD can get you downtown quite easily. And you have the option of the...

    I didn't know that cyclists didn't have lives, jobs or families. And also that a 5 percent grade is "very steep".

    Oddly enough, I do the exact opposite thing for the same reason. :) Most of the issues I have at MUP/road intersections are simply that drivers don't expect traffic at places that aren't clearly...

    I take the road both directions always there. The way the trail crosses several driveways and has that fairly poor road crossing at the neighborhood is kinda dangerous IMO, and since I have another...

  21. Free Yakima King Cobra roof racks, need some TLC

    I have a pair of Yakima King Cobra roof racks. Bought in 2004 or so, lived on the roof of my old subaru since they were bought. That car is gone and the racks could use a new home (the new car runs...

    I have a pair of Yakima King Cobras, which are an older roof mount that grabs the wheels. But they would need some sort of rack and cross bars to clamp to, so probably wouldn't work out of the box...

    I fully agree with this. I'll note that I've owned two disc-equipped CX bikes for commuting, and ended up selling them both and only own road bikes now (and my touring bike, which uses v-brakes). ...

    I think Dirt has a set of trekking bars on one of his bikes, so maybe he can check in. They certainly look like MTB levers and shifters would work, but I'm not entirely sure. You also need to make...
