    I mentioned that a lot of their language was vague to the point of uselessness. That and enforcement of traffic laws; I always mention enforcement since it seems we've largely given up on that.

    You need a hacksaw with carbide grit blade. I mean, I've never done it, but when I thought I was going to need to, that's what my research came up with. There are videos online of people doing it. If...

    My Abus has never had a problem and is the cleanest working lock I've owned, but it stays on a bike in in the basement so doesn't get jostled so who knows. I did have an OnGuard that was like...

    Happened to me with a Kryptonite, but luckily with the lock only on the rack at work where I leave it, not on the bike. I looked into it and Kryptonite suggests what others are saying, but it's still...

    Since you were like half a mile behind me on the leaderboard yesterday and will inevitably pass me today, surely that was a feature, not a bug.

    A couple of guys in front of me dismounted to walk...

    Specific quote:

    "Pedestrians walk into moving traffic without looking, bikes too"

    So we have walking bicycles that don't look where they're going. I believe this surpasses "astute" and moves...

    I kind of agree with this, but I think it depends on where you are riding in Arlington (and also DC). In general, in DC the traffic is going slower. There are many more opportunities for conflicts,...

    Reflecting backpacks like the Oertleib and the stripes on the Banjo Brothers such are a huge passive help in any cases where there are headlights.

    As a cyclist who is also a motorist, I have to disagree. This summer, for instance, driving along Shore Drive in Virginia Beach (where a bike lane sits right next to 55-mph traffic), I remember...

    It's difficult to communicate anything in those few seconds in a way that might not be perceived poorly, at least for such as me, so I've pretty much stopped any efforts like that.

    I do think some...

    Don't get me wrong, I have bells on most of my bikes. I'll use the bell in certain situations and the voice in others. But especially on the Custis and MVT where it can be pretty bumpy, taking the...
