    North Fort Myer / Lynn Street timing

    Having commuted through the intersection of doom for the last 17 years, I know it's much improved, but has anyone else noticed the that the timing of the lights going eastbound is like, perfectly...

    It'd be nice if it was harder to pick, but that still took effort and skill. Not a 5-second Bic pen job, a 4 minute, burglarious tools job.

    My experience was similar. I can't recall if the registration question was how many miles do you ride a week, or how many miles will you ride? I want to think it was the former, and I said something...

    I was on Team 7, and I think we led not because riders were newcomers who changed their behavior but because the rules this year suited many of our established, individual routines. For example, this...

    Yes, that is the nature of a PBL. The level of parking turnover isn't trivial; the more turnover there is and the more the PBL is used, the more potential for collisions. How frequently pedestrians...

    I guess my assertion that one of the "options" a driver has for crossing a four foot wide PBL is a wheeled conveyance was not ridiculous enough. The point I was trying to make is that in this...

    Darn right. And in practice this means that if there was a PBL on the north side of Washington in Westover, after backing into a parking spot in front of Ayers hardware, said driver-turned-pedestrian...

    I'm looking for a recommendation for a 26" knobby tire (not studded) that sheds snow and slush, but isn't a liability on wet pavement. My commute doesn't have long stretches of ice, just bridges and...

    My Crust Clydesdale fork arrived and has rejuvenated the Trek 800 I bought 25 years ago! The double-wide milk crate is sized almost perfectly for two paper grocery bags. I think it could pretty...

    The basket on top of a Jones bar was probably the weirdest equipment thing I saw at the event, but the rider seemed to like it just fine.

    Sadly the puller tool didn't quite work. It was the correct one to use, but when the retaining ring broke it damaged the threads. The tool couldn't fully engage, and even trying to crank it in there...

    The puller arrives tonight and I'll report on how that goes, but in the meantime, I had ordered a replacement bolt assembly and it just arrived. Identical to the original, with one exception. There's...

    Actually, I watched that video before I started. I wish my retaining ring was as beefy as the one in the cutaway shot!

    Yah, gadzooks that's high. I don't know if the installer took it that high, since the bolt itself loosened pretty easily, and I was only using a ratchet, not breaker bar.

    FSA self-extracting crank bolt

    Hi all,

    I could use some experience and advice here. I managed to shear the extractor washer (or whatever the proper name for it is) while attempting removal of my FSA Omega's NDS crank.

    Thanks all. We're going to give the highlands trail as VA2DC suggests, if the weather holds. I'll be back to do Canaan Loop Rd and the Canyon trail on my NFE sometime, sans WeeHoo :)
