Need a Spare? Bike Wheel or Car Wheel?

If you need a spare, look no further.  Just use your mountain bike 36 spoke wheel. Disclaimer: This is not recommended.

I wouldn't go at any high speed, as the tire is at a higher pressure and suited for only so much torsional load.  The consistent load directly…

Bruce Willis and Fred Armisen Sometimes Ride Bikes

Lofty, isn't it? I…

New Fillet Brazed Bike

I've just gotten a chance to take my brand new fillet-brazed fixed gear bike I made out for a longer ride around Portland.  I built the wheels myself as well.  Since this picture, I've managed to wrap the handlebars and attach a brake lever. It cuts the corners like a hot knife through butter, and it's like a race horse out of the starting gate from a stop light.…

Don't Ride on the Sidewalk Kids

Get out in the road.  

It's there for you too cyclist!  You pay taxes to be able to freely transport yourself from A to B.  There's no law against riding a bike in the road, and for good reason.  However riding on the sidewalk is a seldom enforced legal violation in many places.

I saw a man who was hit by a right-on-red motorist yesterday afternoon in Springfield, VA.  If you've ever tried to ride in Springfield, the place is a bike nightmare.  With the "Mixing Bowl"…

Tour des Lacs Banlieue

Pardon if my French is poor.  I mean to say "Tour of Suburban Lakes."

Anyways, I had to get out and explore today.  And also, it was time to buy more light bulbs: excellent excuse to go on a ride.

Don't worry, those aren't miles.  It's a little over 31.5 miles in total length.…

Cycling in China

How do you think of cycling in other countries?  Unfortunately, they say cycling in China is in decline.  A country that has relatively prospered without a a multitude of cars is finally falling victim to an overabundance of automobiles.  This is due to a lot of things, but I'm not expert on it.  All I know is, it's harder for people to ride a bike when there are more cars.  Evidently, the convenience and status appeal of the car has finally diffused from Western countries, and ironically I…

VeloCity Bike Cooperative

I have yet to make it to this cooperative. One day I may, but in the mean time, it looks like they're doing just fine.  Check them out, work on your bike, and go hang out and bullshit.  It's a great way to meet people and learn. You can't beat that.

Helmet Hair

For the ladies out there, I'm going to attempt to recommend an article on a subject I know nearly nothing about - women's hair styles.  They say this is a good way to avoid helmet head, especially if you've got longer hair.  Let me know what you think!
