    longest seat tube that gets you to the right height plus glue (epoxy)? If there's enough tube in the frame I'd guess the force on that little bit at the top shouldn't matter much--it's mostly there...

    I wasn't even talking about the lamp posts, though those are bad enough. Really, they could be on top of the really thick concrete wall rather than off to the side. Might need a different and less...

    Oooh, that's an excellent example of the DOT mindset of "protect the drivers and screw the plebs on the sidewalk"!

    it's not that: they like it because contributory negligence makes it much less likely that someone will try to go to court to get a better outcome than whatever the insurance companies decide is...

    I guess you think this is cute. I think it's disgusting.

    Weird how much your later posts differ from your original post. To refresh your memory: "The bollard placement did not kill the rider. Lack of attention, riding too fast, or something similar...

    No you didn't, you advocated for a specific interpretation of events. :) A headline will never list all contributing factors, only a couple of words that fit into a headline. If you want the focus to...

    We spend literally tens of millions if not hundreds of millions of dollars every year on ensuring that inattentive drivers can't be killed by things next to roads. I guess I'd be ok if the standard...

    ducts are similarly one of the rationales for the crappy new trail inside the sound wall on 66!

    also, the picture in that article is making me nauseous. if a little dutch angle is good, a lot must...

    Yes, it's important to lose every time there isn't a simple and cheap solution, not just once!

    I'm amazed at how much more honking I hear when I'm riding with my wife, on the same roads riding the same way. People suck. :(

    It's so cute that they're pretending to care about public input while they do what they've been trying to do for decades.

    just remember, if you get hit outside of the crosswalk it's your own fault! if you get hit in the crosswalk, OTOH, it's just one of those things.

    Unfortunately, normalizing that data is near impossible so determining the relative risk is also a guessing game. At some point trying to squeeze more information out of bad data is an exercise in...

    Assuming a coffee maker, you should be fine--most will get the water more than hot enough to kill stuff in the water. (Recommendations to boil water for 10 minutes or whatever are bs: 158 degrees for...

    I guess the people who didn't feel safe with cars whizzing past were right, Forester notwithstanding?

    I did find it interesting that their data has multiple categories for "cyclist failed to...

    The problem is, that isn't what the sign communicates. It says that you're perfectly ok going 15MPH (+ the 10MPH courtesy window) which is flat out dangerous on a crowded trail. If the intent is to...

    We've already been repeatedly assured that ebikes can't speed because classes. So a 20MPH speed limit does absolutely nothing. (Logically it can't be enforced until someone's doing 30, which will...
