    I think I use the same technique: accelerate to 15-18mph then brake smoothly back down to walking speed and do that a dozen or so times.

    +1 for Nextie, or -- in a similar vein and at a similar price point -- Light Bicycle rims. Those are also well respected in the MTB community. I realize I have 4 sets of LB wheels across 3 bikes now...

    I generally bed in new pads. I don't think that there is a noticeable performance difference, but bedding them in leaves me confident that my brakes will stop the way I expect them to. (Brake...

    I agree w/ mstone. I can pretty much guarantee you that my 44mm Extralight Compass Snoqualmie Pass tires roll faster than your 28/32mm tires. (And are less puncture-proof.)

    I was there -- my son was racing the Jr 9/10 category. I shouted to Josh, but I don't think he heard me. Yeah, that is a great race to spectate -- as well as a great race to race.

    You can totally ride that (to the left of the stairs). Though there's a recent hole that definitely ups the game.

    I believe that, but I still feel that a scooter is "fast enough" for cruising around between transport stops without a helmet etc. And it's only a matter of time before there are stronger motors,...

    My thought is that it's a problem with the GPS -- or the Android location service that abstracts the phone's GPS to the applications. To rule that out, I would recommend also recording your ride on...

    This e-scooter craze is intriguing. From a transportation perspective this makes so much more sense to me than bike-share e-bikes (or non-assist bike-share bikes): they go fast enough, are far more...

    This summer. Their new location is bigger and has a cafe. Of course, the cafe only opens at 8am and closes at 4pm weekdays so I'll likely never stop there for a coffee or a beer. And access from the...

    Honestly, I think the games are what make it fun. The leaderboards maybe get people to go out when they "shouldn't" (or maybe really shouldn't) but the games are great. Even from the sidelines.
