    Yeah, I slid out on the Spout Run Skating Rink. Nothing harmed but my overconfidence. Should be fine soon if not already.

    Bummer, I think I'll have to miss it this year because of a Folger thingy, and I might need those 100 miles for the year's mileage goal.
  3. That's helpful. I had seen the site with the...

    That's helpful. I had seen the site with the video, but had also read a couple of comments from folks on forums saying that to make a 142 fit on a 135, you'd have to shave 3.5 mm off both sides. I...

    Almost pulled the trigger on some Stans Arch S1s, but appears they're only with 142 rear hubs and my bike is 135, so haven't yet decided if I want to shave a few mm off the dropouts or keep looking....

    I thought I'd be one of the first to use it, but then a car pulled into it in front of me so I was in the road instead. But yeah, I was happy to see mode separation here finally.

    "Fun fact: no two Harris Teeters are even remotely the same!"

    Good to know. The Harris Teeter in Lee Harrison Shopping Center is better than any Giant I've ever been to, so I was puzzled.

    I'll...

    Understood. We have a thread devoted to the issue, but it didn't see much traffic. Only 1,157 differing opinions so far.

    I am sympathetic to the gut response here, but I feel like you've gotta let people do what they are gonna do. So many cyclists seem to think that everyone has to ride the exact same way they do, and...

    If most of your trips are going to be that short and you're not sure you're into biking, you might consider just getting a Capital Bikeshare membership to start. Test the waters and see how it goes,...

    Those are nice too. I actually don't even need carbon; just want bombproof (and tubeless compatible), and carbon doesn't seem that expensive anymore. And while I like doing things myself, building...

    In fairness, the Jersey wall in the picture is likely a 32-inch Jersey wall. I just finished working on a report showing crash testing of semis with concrete barriers protecting bridge piers, and...

    Yes, really nice prices, and so many different dimensions. Ima need to go do some research.

    They have another model of carbon that ... is also sold out. Too bad, but perhaps I can find some used or elsewhere. I could always run them with the current tubed tires at first and change to...
  14. Do you happen to remember the model of those...

    Do you happen to remember the model of those bomber crabon wheels that came stock on your trail bike and the mech said a mere 4 spokes breaking wouldn't be an issue for those wheels at all? Because I...

    Admittedly this is tangentially related to original post, but tubeless has been discussed. When I built up my current mountain bike, money was tighter and I put Mavic Crossrides on it b/c I could get...

    I bedded in BB7s the fist time, but have not since, for those or Shimano hydraulics. I just let the first ride be the bedding in and haven't noticed a difference. I suppose that as long as the levers...

    Agree w/ most of SteveO's post, except I've definitely felt some driver heat on 4 lanes in the area. Glebe Road up from Chain Bridge after it goes to 4, Rout 7 through Falls Church (even though it's...

    "Can't wait to take the dog for a jog on this new multi-use path" are words you won't be hearing.

    Complete joke of a design that will be little used and will be converted to a car travel lane...

    To follow up on the cassettes, the two bikes with Ultegra 11 have 11-28 and 11-32, not that I've ever noticed the difference, probably because the one with less range has a compact crankset (50/34)....

    I've yet to run out of gears on either of my 11-speed Ultegra bikes, but I have run out of gears on the 10-speed 105 gravel bike (although that may have been a function of the hill at Dirt Farm). I...

    Standard markings? If folks complain enough maybe we can get one of those orange cones that fixes everything put in front of the pole.

    Thank you for that background. Funny thing is, if you look at my pic way at the top, you see a similar truck parked where the bike lane feeds back into the Quincy at the intersection....

    I did not. As you can tell from the pic, it was yuuge and I didn't want to do my back in again. Check Strava to see where Judd went last night.

    Rode this yesterday. They're about what I expected. The trash cans are just going to be a problem despite whatever the residents do since the collection folks just dump them wherever. This was...
