When I'm not bicycling, I'm a Linux SysAdmin. I'm on the board of my local bicycle advocacy group.

Bikes are my primary transportation. A 2009 Surly Long Haul Trucker, set up as a commuter and a 2012 Trek Ion CX. I also take the bus, but do not own a car.

comment My LBS does not carry fixed-gear/single-speed parts. What next?
Note that many (most?) US bike shops have QBP as a supplier and can therefore order All-City, Surly Steamroller, and other QBP brands, even if it's not stuff they usually stock.

@zenbike: in the mobile interface, click flag then it doesn't belong on this site to find the vote to close dialog.

comment Choosing good slick tires for a MTB
Tire width affects air resistance more than anything.

comment What features are useful on a bike for carrying children?
I understand there's a very similar style of bike in Japan called a "mamachari" (mother's bike).

comment Why don't bikes by auto manufacturers make it into bike shops or onto the streets?
@zenbike: Agreed. Pictures made it too hard to find the answers. Pared down to a select representative few (with the Mini first because it's mentioned as what is being shopped for) with links to the rest of the images.

paring photo list down to something more reasonable, while leaving links to all the pictures, so that page isn't so very very long

You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Chatty, open-ended questions with no actual problem to solve or rants disguised as questions diminish the usefulness of our site and push other questions off the front page.
