    +1 for BYOD.

    I have a Moto G Google phone with Straight Talk (AT&T towers) month-to-month. At $45/phone for unlimited everything this saved $50/month over the lowest-grade family plan for my wife...

    There were a shocking number of people in shorts this am! Maybe because yesterday was so abnormally warm (in the morning)? Weather.com said 42 at 5:30; The Garmin said 35-38 around Arlington / DC /...

    Lemme know if you need bars. I have a small collection of compact drop bars (44cm). All black, but since you chose a black headset, I assume that black is what you're going for.

    Yup, agreed on the price. Let us know how you find it. I'm still very tempted, despite potentially being more cumbersome to pull stuff off etc.

    This is a great deal. That specific price seems to be gone, but you can still get it for ~$100. But then I did a few minutes of investigation into the Virb Edit software and specifically how I...

    My wife and I were pretty stoked to try Pure Pasty after coming back from a London trip, but we were disappointed. The ones we tried were all pretty bland, even the curry (though that was...

    Nothing against this site, but I really hate forum software. The backends are either all the same or clones of each other and IMO they're all horrible, horrible software. Threads that go on for...

    This happens regularly. Every morning multiple times on my westbound ride, in fact.

    While I know that I for one am appreciating how you are elevating this discussion, it would probably be an even...

    Yes, and there is also a reason that cars are not allowed to just run with high beams at all times. (Or at all in the District.)

    But seriously are we still talking about this? :)

    That is funny. I didn't think there was an elementary school there either, but since it shows up on the boundary map, figured I was wrong.

    Concur with Westover being an awesome place to live -- esp with kids. Will note that Westover itself is zoned for McKinley elementary school, but that is still just a mile or so away. (Walter Reed...

    It sounds like either the Mexican Coke is also made with at least a significant percentage of HFC or the cane-sugar version is export-only at this point. Either way, they're both bad for you :)

    I love that we can get central American Coke here, reminds me of my childhood. So I guess Coke was like that once here? To me it is just the Coke product/formula that the rest of the world drinks....

    The evidence was anecdotal, but that is evidence enough for me that it adds danger. It is fairly intuitive that even "dazzled" cyclists, whatever state of vision that implies, are a greater risk to...

    I think people are just different or you get used to lower light. I can see people, even non-reflective, quite far off in the distance. I likely have my lights angled up more / more even than you...

    I find 200-350 lumens is plenty. When it's full dark, I run the Lezyne at 200 lumens, when it's starting to get light, I drop it to 100L and when it's not really needed for trail illumination, I set...

    Yeah, agreed, you don't have to pay to ride a MTB into the park. And I have no idea why someone would ride a road bike in; riding on Georgetown or Old Dominion sounds ill advised.

    There at silver H+ Son Archetype rims; they are beautiful. I built a set for Lena awhile back. They only come in 28h or 32h drilling, but that is probably fine for your purposes....

    Fixed that for ya.

    To be fair, there are clip-on fenders and the ones I have provide good coverage. But even though I leave them off a lot in summer, I still call that my rain bike.

    I have never encountered one of these; I don't think this is a real problem. And plenty of [conventional bicycle] riders can go 30+ mph; just look at Tim's KOMs! :)
