    Continuing as your NE DC correspondent: the bike lanes on K NE between 2nd and 6th are relatively new; they were installed about a year ago. Previously, that stretch of K Street had rush-hour...

    My wife has a Turbo Como. The battery is removable (yay!) if need be. I get the marketing push of "it's not even a bike" but would rather they phrase it as "it's not just a bike" as they had done...

    PBLs in the works. Per the DDOT NOI at https://wiki.ddot.dc.gov/display/NOI/NOI-20-64-PSD, the protected lanes will run all the way from 7th NW to 1st NE and connect to the 1st street cycletrack...

    It really is a different road on weekdays vs. weekends because of Sunbelt and the other industrial uses; doubly so whenever in-person school is happening. Simplifying the general traffic flow to be...

    Spray.Bike bills itself as a dry matte powder-coating, and yes, it is relatively newer in the grand scheme of things. Probably not quite as good as a professional power coating, but it's a trade-off...

    You remember correctly - I used it to change the trailercycle from green to her preferred blue, with some metal flake thrown in for extra zing. I painted over the old paint, though I did go over it...

    Also worth considering from a price standpoint are the Lezyne GPS units. Not quite as user-friendly as the Wahoo experience from my recollection, but slightly friendlier to the pocketbook.

    To provide a bit more context about what the "something" will be - the likeliest outcome from last summer's presentation and what folks have heard out of DDOT since is converting 8th NE to a one-way...

    Ending my streak at ~3.2 years in March when I got sick was both crushing and liberating. It changes day-to-day which feeling is more prevalent.

    I think it's still an open question as to how much of their fleet is being scrapped vs. redeployed by Lime. (No debate that it's "WAY TOO MANY" but both parties claim that it's not all of them.) ...
