    In general the driver for ramps is ADA compliance, not cyclists, so it's not surprising that they tend to be crappy for cyclists. I'd personally prefer stairs with a wheel gutter most of the time...

    There's a maximum slope standard and also a standard for maximum run based on the slope. (The idea AFAIK is to limit how far/fast your mobility assist device will go if you lose control on the slope....

    I don't think you can get this kind of a failure on a tire with a tube--it looks like a delamination, and a very small pinhole on the inside layer. A tube wouldn't be able to squeeze through the...

    Of course they should be allowed to do this, the only reason to forbid it is because of concern trolling. There would be an immense net increase in safety if cycling advocacy organizations could...

    The problem AIUI is that in reality the US isn't responsible for much of the plastic pollution because we tend to have a good infrastructure for putting waste plastic in trash cans and getting it to...

    VDOT routinely designs intersections which pedestrians must cross 3 times in order to cross the street, just because they want cars to have a guaranteed zero-wait signal. They deserve all the dissing...

    it really all depends on how slow we're talking about AMIRITE?

    Forget plastics, the biggest pollution from a peloton are those little foil goo dispensers and all the damn banana peels.

    I wouldn't do either trail on a track bike, but they don't require mountain bikes either; something like a hybrid or a road bike with 28s or bigger tires would be fine. Creeper trail is probably...

    why on earth would someone watch a troll bait video asking an inane question?

    I'd be glad if a similar amount of money were spent protecting people not in cars from drivers who drive off the road. As it stands, no, I'm not glad about the unequal allocation of limited resources.

    This society sure does spend a lot of money protecting drivers who drive off the road from themselves, doesn't it?

    It would have to work at night, but that's doable. The real question is whether we're ready for scooters to become 24/7 surveillance devices. (Which is basically what you'd need, in order to identify...

    Streetlights aren't actually very cheap--something like $5-10k lifetime cost--and you amortize the cost of running the wires by having a crew run a whole bunch of them in a straight line, usually...
