Re: Tubes or Tubeless

I've never ridden tubeless tires, and given the bother they seem to be, I doubt I ever will. But I'd like to understand why people do ride on them. I know all the TdF riders use them because, as I understand, they are more stable when they [more]

Re: Newspaper gripe

No one seems to really report the news anymore.

We have one local reporter for school things and one for 'business'. We don't have one for gov't although we have interesting county and city gov'ts as well as the state capital too.

Re: Newspaper gripe

We get the L.A. Times and the local Daily Breeze. It seems to us we should get a discount rate if we get online delivery instead of actual paper. The papers say "No deal." Should save them some printing and delivery costs, [more]

road tubeless

A few weeks ago I set up some tubeless-ready rims and tires w/ no sealant, and they actually held air for a couple hours, so I could pump them up in the morning, commute in, pump them up in the afternoon, commute home. Didn't trust them for a century [more]

Re: Bicycle routes make cities safer for all.

If you shower in the morning, you need to be able to cool off before starting work, but you really don't need ANOTHER shower.

That's my experience too.

Re: Bicycle routes make cities safer for all.

Already Seattle has many miles of exclusive bike lanes from which automobiles aere excluded. I rarely see another cyclist using them in most cases.

Someone who can ride in unsorted traffic generally isn't patient enough to ride in a [more]

Despite that, I wouldn't bet the farm on it.

It's inconceivable to me that Jon didn't warg into Ghost and will find his way back to a human body eventually. Doesn't have to be the same actor.

Re: For the Fashion Forward Folk.

I really like the look of all these European cities and their bikers and their cool style (at least, in the way they're photographed for the blogosphere).....and the implication that you can get to your place of work with no *hat head*, dust on [more]

Re: For the Fashion Forward Folk.

I think it makes quite a big difference when bikes have a history as a form of conveyance rather than exercise.

People forget that bikes were invented as a labor *saving* device, not a calorie burning device. Supposed to reduce [more]

Re: Tri/TT riding/racing

The problem I've had is, I don't really enjoy drafting. Or, more like, it sorta scares the s**t out of me so I don't enjoy riding nearly as much when I'm drafting as when I'm not.

I'm pretty happy w/ drafting, and I can even hide from [more]

Re: GoT S5 E8

What seems to happen is stories don't arc they just build and end.

Which is admittedly not unlike real life. Lots of people die in the middle of work they thought they were essential to.
