    Don't cheap out. You need rugged if you're going to wear it every day, and what is the point if you're not?

    I have a GoPro, don't know about other brands. I've dropped it, crashed with it, taken...

    I stopped to patch someone's tube this morning. They'd never seen a tube before. And they asked if I used the same pump to fill the tube and the tire.

    We are generally speaking a self-selected community of safety weenies, arguing over safety weenie minutiae. Needless to say, I'm very proud.

    In the DC area, people more often than not respect the bike lanes (yes, I know that there are many, many counterexamples, but in general they do). In NY, no one respects the bike lanes.

    Never did that. I found pretty much any bike would fit in the trunk of a Crown Vic, which is what every cabbie drove in the 90's and early aughts.

    I've seen no evidence that cyclists' judgment in assessing traffic situations is any better than any other modal users. I think any notion that situation X will be okay if we just have more...

    I don't mind the debate, but the core principle, in my mind, is that cyclists are simply not a sufficient modal share that this would create an issue. If half of all traffic were bikes, this would be...

    To the rider who peppered me with questions about the L Street cycletrack and my helmet cam before excitedly exclaiming this was her first time bike commuting in 5 years, I repeat: That's awesome.

    Yep, they had a choice between making it a decent, useable trail, and making it something that looks good only on a map.

    Disc brakes (and better wheel building in general) should eliminate your truing problem. There are various price points for bikes; roughly $1000-$1200 is one such price point that will get you better...

    There are probably 10 on the CCT, which, given the long distances between vehicle access points, leads me to conclude they're not going anywhere any time soon.
