    Yes, it is safer to have two separate and clearly marked wide paths with a highly visible obstruction in the middle rather than making one path with two skinny lanes and a hidden hazard in the...

    The thing is, the one-size-fits-all flex bollard "solution" isn't very useful for a case where people are determined to drive their coolers in, either. Sounds like this is a location where a barrier...

    I'm pretty sure that we do have data that more people are injured in bollard collisions than auto collisions on non-motorized trails, that's why the federal guidance says not to spread them like...

    The threat model is also important. I regularly use a cable lock when I'm with the kids or running errands. It's a suburban area, theft rates are low, we're not going to be out of sight long, and...

    It may be a warning that even trucks that are normally allowed on the trail can't use that bridge due to weight restrictions.

    It fascinates me that NVRPA doesn't seem interested in improving pavement markings vs just dropping bollards around like fairy dust.

    Yeah, at some point custom is the way to go, but it is expensive.

    Yeah, I get all that--what confuses me is when they say it can still fit 700c tires (which implies that they kinda still need to have made the trade-offs to fit 700c tires). Maybe it's a typo as...

    I'm pondering what, exactly, you need to do to a disc frame to make it fit 650b as an option to 700c. This sounds more like a brilliant marketing move than anything, and maybe just a wheel option if...

    Can someone educate me on why they don't just put framesaver on at the factory? Is there a set of cyclists that prefers rust?

    Hell, pools even have lights underwater. If they had only mentioned this sooner we could have all chipped in for some caulk for them.

    Rumor has it that ELITE cyclists can get even better prices because they can double-stack passengers in a full aero tuck.

    Then my fender doesn't fit. My kids' bikes aren't large enough. Bottom line: there's no way to make those wheel bender racks not suck. They should just be banned.

    I would guess that needing to ID in provides some deterrence, and I would expect there'd be cameras & such. I'm more fascinated by the building itself--we don't keep much infrastructure around for...

    It's like any other bike purchase, but with fewer options (which makes it easier, I'd guess). Start by defining what you want to do with the bike.
