    The lights/reflectors argument in this particular case seems like a distraction. The cyclist was hit from behind, while in the right lane of a three lane road that is lit. I'm sorry, but if you don't...

    Finally swapped in the 16t cog that has been sitting on the shelf for 5 months, so the Cinelli is running 48x16 (79gi). Cuts my RPMs down by about 10 coming down hills, which really helps me keep...

    It has a few, somewhat contradictory meanings, and can be both a term of derision or endearment, although I think very few would use the term derisively with any seriousness or lack of irony. Most...

    Sure...so what's the story? That's what I was trying to get at...I'm not saying I disagree with you, I just don't know what the deal is.

    I know what a poseur is, I just don't understand the use of the epithet in this context.

    Take that back! Otherwise we risk being expelled from the challenge for our terrain-ist insults.

    As a fellow European American, I can attest that it really is tough dealing with the crushing racism and lack of opportunity that comes with being a white man in America.

    While I'm not the GP devotee that Dismal is, I agree it's probably generally better to buy a bike that's slightly too big than slightly too small. Reach can be shortened with a shorter stem, but you...

    I always assumed the team is mostly retired Freds with nothing to do but ride.

    They kinda seemed like a less convenient, less-likely-to-have-good-deals, version of REI. Not that I think they "deserve" to close or anything, but the outdoor equipment and apparel market in this...

    I think if you get a large platform pedal, that compensates for less rigid shoes. For me, the biggest issue with platforms is having to constantly readjust my foot position, not so much comfort/power...

    I rode from the skating rink to Lake Fairfax, then to Great Falls via Colvin Run/Difficult Run today. I'd say a good 85% of that could be ridden on a CX bike if you have decent handling skills....

    They're about as loose as they can be and still keep me from pulling out while climbing out of the saddle. Thankfully, I have been riding clipless long enough where my panic instinct is to twist out,...

    I would try this, but the thought of commuting on my hybrid makes me a little queasy. I could catch a little bit of singletrack, but I also wouldn't really want to do my commute on my mountain bike...
