    If I were nervous biking on Columbia, I think I'd be nervous on almost any street.

    It really was a revelation to me when the Sunday shop ride I sometimes do used Columbia (though from Cherry...

    Yeah, it said 45 at the weather station in our back yard. I actually used gloves with fingers, but refused to go back to long tights.

    A very belated thank you for the offer. I finally picked one up at the HP ride on the last evening of freezing saddles. Thought I'd never use it, but when I rode to Kaiser in dress slacks the other...

    GPS on the phone most likely. I use my phone as well (with a Garmin watch as a backup), and if it can't find the satellites, that kind of thing happens.

    Fine, but you have perceived "unfair attacks" where none were intended. If someone observing a scooter beeping in the trail and setting it off to the side gets you all bunched up, good luck to you....

    Sounds like a personal problem.

    I'm just going to ride my bike and let it all settle how it will. They're here, it's fine, I doubt they'll be around forever, but we'll see.

    Pointing out the alarm noise of this one scooter was not meant to minimize the effects from the noise of automobile, motorcycle, and truck traffic. However, I did feel the scooter's alarm was somehow...

    One dark winter morning I moved one off the middle of the Custis near the spur that goes to Ballston. It didn't roll and it was heavier than I expected. It already had a fairly loud alarm going off...

    The things are for all intents and purposes disposable; individual scooters have a v. short lifespan (about a month according to a recent article). Any "profit" has to come from seed money or...

    I want to be on #TeamAntiSocial, but of course I don't want to be captain. That would be too social.

    Except if your name was Bob James, of course.

    I never went there. I wouldn't have been able to take it and would have wanted to take them all home.

    I'd be interested to hear how well they last. I just read a review of an $8,500 titanium Moots that had the Riddlers on it (the bike, not the review). They said the tire cut up easily, but they were...
