I think it IS the prevelant attitude. How many posts point out the decent, polite drivers? How many posts point out the maniacal death-dealers in steel boxes? I would argue that there are...

I have to agree, at least in part, with Klixi on this one. The "us vs. them" attitude on this forum is, unfortunately, pretty widespread. The VERY large majority of drivers here in Portland are...

Thanks, I'm aware of the bike map, but what I'm interested in is the best route. It seems that blindly following the green lines on the map don't make for the best ride. Avoiding as many traffic...

I bought the 1.75" Marathon HS 368 for my bike and they are fantastic. Of course, the only thing that I have to compare them to is my huge knobby tires.

I think that I'm going with the Marathon HS368, but I'm not sure if I should get the 26" x 1.75" or 2.00".

Any suggestions?

Slick/Semi-slick tires for my mountain bike?

You should have whipped out you cell phone and started to call the police, or perhaps just pretended to. That would have gotten her out of there lickety split.

So you want to remove the crown in every road so water doesn't run down the...

Any more conspicuous than the other odd birds I've seen walking around New Seasons? I think the people who are dressed 'normally' (e.g., me) stand out more than the average New Season'er.
