    I like tri-shorts for rides 200k and under, but eventually I think I want a little padding. I'll have to try a 300k that isn't an important one in tri-shorts some time. It hasn't bothered me (at...

    My husband was reading the Interbike news -- he's more of a runner than a cyclist, but he does ride, and he said "look at these e-bikes, if I had one I'd never drive my car to work". He usually...
