    I powder coated a frame at a industrial place in Manassas, probably 10 or 15 years ago. They did an ok job. I think they missed a spot, and were a little overzealous on some of the holes, but the...

    IMHO, you may not need 36 spokes just because of your weight. I weigh about the same and have plenty of bikes with 32 spoke wheels.

    For spoke lubricant, I used motor oil. In theory, a properly...

    OK, since I work at the Pentagon or Crystal City, let me add another suggestion: The Pentagon transit center really, really needs a Capital Bikeshare station there. Make it a double-wide station...

    When I used to do mountain bike races, there was always a pre-race inspection to ensure that all bikes had bar plugs. It was taken seriously for this reason.

    Yeah, when I typed my response that issue was sort of nagging me. Even I f I could build a sensor, and it was integrated into cars, then would cyclists be required to have the special light? And if...

    I've developed IR sensors and have thought of something like this, but it's a lot harder to actually make it work in the real world, and at an affordable price. Making a bike light emit IR wouldn't...
