    You've read the article before. No facts. Anecdotes about that one jerk cyclist. Roads are for cars. Complete waste of time.

    Isn't taking stolen property across state lines a felony?

    This is another way to be "exceptional". The Bike Rack is 1) close to my house and 2) open at 8am. The fact that the staff is good is almost just gravy. When I can hit a pothole on the way to work,...

    I think at this point in retail you have to be exceptional or else you won't make it. I had an REI employee at 7 Corners spend half an hour with me making sure my hiking backpack fit, and this was a...

    Ok, cool, that's more or less what I was thinking. She's been meaning to get new sneakers anyway.

    I'm trying. She's still opposed, but I have a set of pedals with clips and straps that I can put on if she wants.

    Shoes for platform pedals

    You all may have seen my wife's new bike. She is adamantly refusing to put anything but flat pedals on it (I can understand not wanting one more thing to get used to right away, since she's never...

    Not mine - we bought this from Powerful Pete for my wife (immediate goal of doing the Seagull Metric Century in October). She just got back from riding it home (plus 3 Hains Point laps). We're very...

    Every time I take the bike in to Bicycle Space (where we got it) they all say I HAVE to upgrade to the BB7s. I want to say "don't sell a bike with components your entire staff hates", but I get that...

    Replacing the brakes on the Xtracycle

    Our Xtracycle came with Avid BB5s. I hate them. When they're dialed in perfectly, I get a week of great braking, then I can either have quiet brakes or functional brakes but not both.

    I was...

    $30/day on Spinlister. There's also a bike shop that does it cheaper but they didn't have anything available. Splendid Cycles has a Bullit for $25.

    Babies are great at bars. The constant white noise reminds them of the womb. As the kid gets older, bring snacks. Once she's a little older than that, coloring. Our kids have been in training for...

    This man is my hero. I love how he just gets back on his bike and rides off like nothing happened.

    I'm interested. I'm in the middle of trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up and this is a really cool opportunity. How the heck does anyone come into this after Dirt, though?
