    I don't know the Allegra, but the Coda is steel and has a really smooth ride. If you are considering them, test ride each; the difference between aluminum and steel is startling to me. The Coda is a...

    I know the street and I think bump outs are a good idea but they don't really work for pedestrians mid-block without a stop sign. So if the city is arguing the pedestrian safety angle, it's not...

    I've been watching the Tour de France since 1986, when ABC Sports had one hour of coverage on Saturday. I really enjoy it. YMMV.

    Vasectomy. Why should we have to take all the risks? If that is not acceptable, then a good old fashioned diaphragm. Combined with a condom, it's pretty darn effective. I've never taken the Pill...

    The artist is from my city and is very good. He gives daily updates to the cycling club via Facebook. Or at least he did before the kickstarter kicked in. Anyways, I really like his paintings.
