Dur. Yes, I meant SW.

I don't think the wobbly trail-a-bike was due to bad balance, I think it was just a crappy piece of equipment. I bought it used for $30 and didn't try it out first. There was...

Reasonable bike commute with a kid?

Ok, my son is going on 7 years old, and a pretty strong cyclist. We're in SE Portland, Woodstock in the 60's. We are currently bike-commuting a pretty short distance (1.5 miles each way) to the Y,...

ISO used trail-a-bike

Hope it's ok that I'm posting this--I desperately need a trail-a-bike for my five-year-old, who is completely sick of the trailer, but not quite up to long rides on his own bike. I'm getting...

I have definitely had negative reactions to bell-ringing or vocal warnings when passing peds. I guess I can see why it would be irritating one way or another, and it reinforces my belief that bikes...

Ice cream.

Not going to give up meat, but I'll pass on the school lunches, thankyouverymuch. Organic grass fed or whatever scraps of venison my dad tosses my way for me. Once a month or so.

I'm so sad about this. Work has been busy, and I I just read about it today. I met him once a few years ago when I made a pilgrimage to the Harris Cyclery. He will be missed.

When I did a lot of distance cycling, I also commuted 13-15 miles each way every day. I could do this quickly if there was no traffic, but not if there was. I didn't consider it training, but would...

I don't expect 3 feet, but then, I'm from NYC. I'm just grateful they're not actually hitting me.

Oh, and relying on audible signals doesn't seem like a great idea, since the pedestrian might not...

My Burley kid trailer is a shade under 32" wide, and sometimes it feels like it's a little too wide. Sometimes I wish I'd bought the solo, since I only have one kid, but I have plenty of room for...

I live right across from Tektronix, so I go past that intersection by car or bike every day in between home and daycare. (Maybe you've seen me pulling my Burley?) I go out of my way to avoid turning...

Ok, I don't do this now, but I did do a 15-mile each way commute in NYC, year round and in all weather. I did this on a crap bike, and on good bikes, and the main difference was that I worried more...

Yes, well. I've lived here 2.5 years.

I disagree. I've pushed a stroller as a pedestrian through enough intersections in Beaverton that I've also driven, and I know that pushing the button does not make the light cycle any faster. The...

I have to nitpick this one. Bikes and peds don't mix. As a cyclist I'd much rather be on the road with cars than on a path with peds. Give me a nice well maintained shoulder any day.

And yes,...

I use the Conti Top Tours. I don't think any tires will prevent you from getting flats, but these tires have been good for me.
