    I'm fine with people riding electric bikes. I think it's lazy, but that's opinion and I'm entitled to one. What bothers me is that electric bikes put a lot of speed into the hands of a lot of...

    It's a 56 c-c. Corsa 01. I think these are the nicest frames that came out of Merckx's factory. Made in 1996 with Deda zero uno tubes. I have another one that's built up, but I couldn't resist buying...

    Before kids, my wife and I did a few vacations that involved shipping out bikes overseas on a plane as luggage. Back then, it was free if it was one of your two checked bags. No idea what the fee is...

    Indeed! There's more of those stupid things on the trail than ever. If they're not allowed, no one is enforcing it. And if they do, expect to hear some noise, because the people who ride them are too...

    I think you guys should just avoid Memorial Bridge. I rode across Roosevelt for years. It is a bit narrow and the barrier is a bit low, but it's doable. The job I have now is closer to the Mall so I...

    Anyone know how long the stairs detour on the DC side of the 14-th street bridge is going to last? I'm surprised no one has been hurt hauling their bikes up and down 40 stairs.

    If you are coming from Rosslyn riding south (downstream direction), you can get on the Roosevelt Bridge. The damage is just beyond where the boardwalk splits -- about 100 feet from the split.
