    Those bollards are unquestionably bad, even if one is generally (gasp) pro-bollard. It's too narrow and too steep there.

    Another option - ride an Xtracycle with kids on the back all the time. You can borrow mine and my kids any time. Once you do that for a while, riding your regular bike will feel like cheating.

    We were just talking about this on Twitter - it's so hard to judge how badly you're injured when you get hit like this because the adrenaline masks a lot of the pain. It sounds like the police did a...

    i love my SPDs - I was using toe cages and started getting knee pain. The SPDs make sure my legs properly aligned, every time, and that pain is gone. But while they may be a little more efficient...

    That's clearly an instance of needing a special "Badass Jump over a Truck" button in addition to a regular horn, which is also a brake pedal.

    Even better - the horn is a second brake pedal. Pressing the horn is exactly equivalent to pressing the brake. Name a situation where you would need your horn but pressing the brake is a bad idea.

    So I'm pretty sure the BB on the longtail is the original. So 7400 miles frequently hauling close to 400 pounds (bike + rider + kids + cargo) seems like a pretty good run for a BB. I'll ask the Bike...

    I've never heard BB clicking. Unless I'm hearing it and mistaking it for something else.

    I'll have to check - this might actually be the first BB change, and at 7400 miles, so probably expected.

    Yeah, I love that phrase. I was changing a flat along the W&OD and someone said that to me. It assumes competence but lets you ask for help without wounding your pride.
