    The day before yesterday when I went through here I took the lane b/c they were painting them. I shouted "thank you very much!" (b/c loud painting equipment going) to the workers as I went by.

    If you can safely. A sudden stop using both brakes (and therefore both hands) or an uneven surface or a steep downhill could make signalling an unsafe activity.

    It really is, but it's been there over a month and the rear tire is flat. It's got a serious chain lock backed up by a U lock, so I really wonder what the story is. I look at it every day longingly...

    Even if the plan isn't to build a poorly designed bike trail so that it can be converted to a car travel lane when no one uses it, that's what may happen. Drivers will be sitting in gridlock and will...

    I think combined sewer overflow is mostly an issue with heavy rains. Of course, after heavy rains is usually when the best paddling is.

    I changed my Shimano Hollowtech out because of a noise, but it turned out it wasn't responsible for the noise. It cost like $20 or something though and I got to learn how to do it, so no harm no...

    Step 1: Build lousy bike trail.
    Step 2: Notice that nobody uses it.
    Step 3: Convert bike trail to car lane.

    ETA that I sent in my 2 cents.

    It's blatant care-ism is what it is. It should not be tolerated.

    I need to find something relatively harmless to be angry about so that I can spend my energy on that instead of the shite that...

    Regarding dogs, I believe people should be fine walking their dogs on MUPs, but I would actually never do it myself. Occasionally we'll do the W&OD but stick well to the horse path portion. I just...

    The N. Rhodes/N. Queen street bridge over Route 50 is fine. You could take the Wilson Blvd. bike lane up to Rhodes and turn left.

    ETA: The way I usually get to Wilson from Key is up the Custis (or...

    I'm torn on this. I really want Trollheim to be replaced, but the detour is likely to be a real WTF, and as we've seen with redoing the parking lot, the Park Service isn't really set up for fixing...

    Yeah, I think keeping the weight back is the difference-maker. I was self-taught and had been riding for years before someone mentioned that if I didn't get my weight back I was going to go over the...

    So you're saying I've been doing it wrong all this time? ;)

    Really, that's okay, I don't think we're too far off on this. If stopping (not just slowing) while MTBing, I'll almost always use the...

    While this is true, one of the first things you learn mountain biking is not to be over-reliant on the front brake lest you go over the bars. So even road biking, I tend to use the rear brake, then...

    So why do so many bike makers do 160/140 for CX/road, with the 160 in the front? It seems you'd want the greater stopping power in the rear so would have 160 there. Is space for 160 in the rear a...

    I had a bit of a brain freeze and confused two of my bikes. The CX bike still has the lousy Promax brakes, so when I upgrade that one, I probably will do either hyros or the Hy/Rd you suggest. (It's...
