    For a minute there I thought I had clicked on my ArlNow bookmark by mistake.;)

    Three months! Well, that's a bit of a bummer. I suppose it will be worth it in the end, but the odds of surviving afternoon commutes through Georgetown are in inverse proportion to the time actually...

    Yeah, my night vision isn't the best and I find my 600-lumin beam to be fine most of the time, but some damp mornings, like this one, it is borderline. Luckily it's a helmet light so I can point it...

    Those explosions of anger feel normal when they happen to you, but to outsiders, you just look like a crazy person. Which you are, at least in that moment. I'd rather turn the other cheek since I...

    That's what I was wondering--is it okay to do this? I've have been careless changing tubes before and didn't get them to seat properly all around, then a few hours later would hear a loud bang when...

    Does anyone know if the detour was in place this morning? I usually go that way in the afternoons, but between getting mulched with my 23s and going through Georgetown, I'll take Georgetown.

    The sun is finally coming up early enough for me to witness actual sunrises. This happy coincidence seems to last for about a week a season, and often corresponds to rainy periods. There was much...

    I don't carry a full kit, but for the last few years, I have carried a roll of gauze. Takes up little space and adds little weight. Just wrap it around the road rash or cut to stop the bleeding and...
  10. Straight Dope discussion on car/bike/ped crashes.

    Pretty familiar discussion points.

    Or another bike. N+1. That's what I did with my triple road bike. Left it as a triple and got a custom road bike with Ultegra 11. Use both depending on the situation.

    But the Volpe is a really...

    Even factoring in the War of 1812 plates, I just don't think this whole scenario is possible without some rather exceptional drugs.

    Sounds exactly like the guy on the Custis who prompted my first experience posting on this forum in late 2015. Ran me off the trail and when I dismounted, the only reason there wasn't an...

    I only want to harm the squirrels that destroy my garden. My dog will catch and kill rabbits*, but just looks at the damn squirrels, and they won't fall for live trapping anymore. If I could run over...

    Finally ran over a squirrel Wednesday evening (or rather, the squirrel ran under me). We all knew this day would come. I didn't go over the bars, partially because I was going slowly due to...

    Sounds a bit like a Bianchi Volpe. They come with disc brakes though the one pictured doesn't. I think jrenaut has one.

    Might be worth a shot, but the saddle on the gravel bike is a good bit lower than the road bike, and since it happened on both, it shouldn't be the saddle height. With regard to the cleats, the...

    Another mystery noise

    I was getting a maddening clicking sound with every pedal revolution on my everyday road bike. Always at around 11 o'clock toward the beginning of the stroke on the left side. It sounded like it was...

    Ya gotta do what ya gotta do, but I would not gotta do that. If you clog the tub drain, it's much harder to remove the trap than it is for a sink drain, at least for all the bathtubs I've lived with....

    Looks like they blocked two lanes of WB Lee Highway toward the tail end of rush hour. I'm not going to second guess them.
