    In the DC area, people more often than not respect the bike lanes (yes, I know that there are many, many counterexamples, but in general they do). In NY, no one respects the bike lanes.

    Never did that. I found pretty much any bike would fit in the trunk of a Crown Vic, which is what every cabbie drove in the 90's and early aughts.

    I've seen no evidence that cyclists' judgment in assessing traffic situations is any better than any other modal users. I think any notion that situation X will be okay if we just have more...

    I don't mind the debate, but the core principle, in my mind, is that cyclists are simply not a sufficient modal share that this would create an issue. If half of all traffic were bikes, this would be...

    To the rider who peppered me with questions about the L Street cycletrack and my helmet cam before excitedly exclaiming this was her first time bike commuting in 5 years, I repeat: That's awesome.

    I imagine it filling with windblown trash from the highway, and never getting cleaned up.

    Yep, they had a choice between making it a decent, useable trail, and making it something that looks good only on a map.

    Disc brakes (and better wheel building in general) should eliminate your truing problem. There are various price points for bikes; roughly $1000-$1200 is one such price point that will get you better...

    One can agree about no right on red without thinking that Idaho Stop is anything but an awful idea. Idaho Stop is like if the worst enemy of cycling had a mind ray that convinced us to fixate on the...

    Hope you're better soon. Call their insurance just to notify them that you're likely to make a claim.

    Yeah, I'd go with the cheapest. Performance on all of the current offerings is more than adequate for someone not looking to post amazing videos of themselves shredding. And all out now, I believe,...

    What's the point of going 32 mph if you're only going to burn 6 calories?

    There are probably 10 on the CCT, which, given the long distances between vehicle access points, leads me to conclude they're not going anywhere any time soon.

    Great idea. Last year was brutal on all the bearings in my bikes. This is one type of repair the average semi-competent home mechanic, like me, can handle.
