comment Laws applying to Homemade Tricycles
I find the size of the wheel interesting and amusing. How is a human pedal powered device with 12" wheels no longer considered a bicycle?

comment What type of shoes should a commuter/road biker use?
85+ RPM for a commute to and from work is pretty high and likely to leave one pretty sweaty. Maybe I just live in a hot state, but I try and take it easy especially to the office in the summer.

comment What type of shoes should a commuter/road biker use?
Relying on a heel block to keep your foot on the pedal could be a bad thing. That implies you pedal with the center of your foot. The arch is not all that great for both position, range of motion and can cause other issues. You should always position your foot with the ball of your foot centered on the pedal.

while not a trailer, I love the tandem trail a bike. I have never seen one like that. Moving to the top of my list indeed. Great find!

agreed. She has a pretty low key route. Don't want to banter about routes or laws. Just wondering if there is a trailer that offers inline seating.

Yes. Legally. That doesnt mean my wife is willing to ride in the road pulling a trailer where motorists could care less about a bike lane.

comment Why do cyclists prefer messenger bags over backpacks?
Im with Brain. I would rather carry a backpack. I hate when a messenger bag swings off the side because i needed to look behind me or something.

comment How to clean white handlebar tape?
word of warning on simplegreen. If you let sit too long, like say a year, it will bleach things. Especially in the heat. Something about it breaks down over time and it can damage things when its old.

comment Why did the bike shop put grease on my seatpost?
The metals oxidize at different rates and can create a very strong bond with the newly formed metal compound created by the freshly oxidized molecules.
