    I ran roof racks on my old Subaru and have a hitch rack on the current Explorer. Much prefer the hitch rack. Easier to put bikes on and off. Doesn't generate as much noise on the highway and...

    You know, I'm fine with groups out there working on pacelining and sprints and riding fast and such, but a huge group basically holding an impromptu crit race on a public road frequented by slower...

    I think large groups could probably do intervals at Hains without being total douchecanoes. They might not get to go 100% full speed 100% of the time, and would need to work on communicating when...

    To be clear, I don't really have an issue with using Hains as a training area, pacelining, sprinting, whatever. I just think the groups doing so need to bear in mind that its not their personal...

    I'm not arguing that running that stop sign is by default unsafe (I don't really care if people do), but the case in the OP absolutely was. KLizotte clearly had right of way. There is absolutely...

    Maybe this is an argument for not riding in giant pacelines on public roads? If it can't be done safely (and almost hitting someone who was riding on a frigging public road in a completely legal...

    I think the best route is:
    -Turn onto Gallows south. Bike lanes go to a bit before 66.
    -Just past 66, turn right onto Prosperity.
    -Left onto Merillee
    -Cross Lee Highway, turn left on Strawberry...

    Weirdly enough, the light timings seem to be perfect for 65-70mph. If you go the speed limit of 50 you hit every. goddamn. light. Go 65+ and its clear sailing. They patrol the hell out of that road...

    I assume she means cantilevers, which pretty much only come on cyclocross bikes these days (and are generally pretty terrible).

    Hit up shops. You should be able to make a decent start in an afternoon; make a list of 3-4 local shops and visit each one. Tell them what your intentions are (commuting, rough distance, etc) and a...

    I've been told that they run larger gearing up front not because a standard road double isn't enough, but because it keeps the chainline straighter (for less resistance) in the gears they mostly use.

    I rarely have issues in Reston. Great Falls is another story. I will say that my impression of the local police is that Fairfax is one of the best when it comes to dealing with motorist/cyclist...

    I'm just not a breakfast person. I ride my 7 mile commute, get to work at 8:30 or so and generally eat an early lunch around 11 instead of any sort of breakfast.

    I'm running a Hero3 black as my black box (it was an Xmas present). I'd be interested in:
    -Battery life (the GoPro kinda sucks) and whether the battery is removable.
    -Recording time
    -Ease of...

    Man, I'd give that award to Prius drivers by a landslide. Maybe all those subaru drivers are too busy watching their car fall apart around them. /bitter ex-subaru owner.

    My road bike has multiple scuffed shifters, brake levers and derailleurs from my overly heroic cornering attempts. Thats how you know you're pushing it the right amount. ;)
