    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...

    I still do that every so often when I'm tired. It definitely wakes you up though!

    Whaaaaaat? I stand by the accuracy of my description of those "hills".

    If I was in the market for a new non-road helmet, I'd seriously consider the black version, but the $70 premium over a non-lighted helmet of this style would be a major turnoff. For that, I could...

    Oh my gawd there's going to be one a block from my house! Of course it's scheduled to be installed AFTER I finish my masters program in Va. Square. I find it a bit frustrating though, that the...

    Lots of county maintenance vehicles on the W&OD this afternoon in the Glencarlyn area. It wasn't entirely clear what they were doing, but it was more than the usual amount of maintenance work I've...

    Apparently salmoning around Hains Point is a full-blown trend right now. I mean, I occasionally see the random (seemingly) inexperienced rider going the wrong way slowly, but today I saw several...

    The thing about 50 through there is that it's so freeway-ified that you almost forget there are stoplights...that, and drivers are so used to having a green wave, that they barely pay attention to...

    And there's the issue...cycling is viewed as a "sport" rather than a "mode of transportation." But it's nice outrage-bait for the print media, I guess. Gotta do something to slow the death spiral....

    That's a nice ratio for the city. It's what I'm running on my State for school commuting and what I ran for 50 States. Not so good for spirited rides around HP or flatter roads/trails, but that's...
