    If you'll be riding at sustained faster speeds (so, most likely in a peloton/group), standard is probably the best. I've only ever ridden compact though, so my experience is more limited than my...

    I'm assuming it was just bad luck. I've had stuff shipped from the UK before (from PBK and ChainReaction) without the ridiculous delay. That said, it does often take quite some time (up to 4-6 weeks...

    Roosevelt bridge was fine when I rode it at about 3:30pm. Lots of lumps of salt.

    I ordered some stuff on wiggle.co.uk for the first ever time back in January - it arrived today, having apparently gone through the Netherlands from the postmarks. The Morvelo cap I got seems nice so...

    It was muuuuch better than the morning. Doable on slicks, for now.

    I guess I've been spending too much time around these parts (and spectating Freezing Saddles)... but this made me smile.

    I did a rear brake skid along that icy patch near the basketball court just west of the castle hill (for fun)... I had to do something to make my commute more fun! Seriously though, I was glad to...

    Power/speed!


    I have sometimes wondered if I used a strict chain rotation policy (2 or 3 chains per cassette, and rotate between the chains every 50-100 miles) could I get a lot of life out of a...

    I'm hoping the new RideWithGPS ambassador program takes off. I like their site, and that the creators are just cyclist-developers.

    I'm just running mud/knobby CX tires. If it's a complete fail I will just have to bail on finishing the race, but I'm hoping organizers will be able to hedge their bets on course design vs whatever...

    Given that this is a beater bike I'd just replace the chain / cassette (can never get away from that on any bike), and the big ring. If you find out the BCD, it's pretty easy to do and not that...

    Agreed ^

    I think flat-bar hybrid/road bikes are great commuters though. My first 700c bike was a flat-bar road bike with fender + rack mounts, and I still enjoy riding it.

    If you're set on...

    Ah, okay. My next guess was going to be the phrases "virtuous cycle", "fast lanes" and "clear rules of the road".

    Is it the stuff about mobile voice services/networks?

    I did a search for "coffee" and "puppies" in the document and got na-da.

    I actually thought the Custis was less clear of ice floes than some other days I've ridden! A lot of the curb cuts had ice too. But I really don't like anything more than a couple feet of sheet ice...

    Actually I put the insoles in the boots too, and they help a bit.

    Yeah definitely a "what lies beneath" sort of day out there now. Even with studs, 4+ inches of unplowed snow is going to be hard to ride on, and partly-packed layers snow over ice makes it tough too...
