    Be aware that (lack of) water pressure can be an issue, unless you stack your barrel very high (like directly under your second story gutter). You'll either need to just use the barrel to fill...

    :D

    It's because women typically have a greater Q angle, shorter limbs, and a larger thigh-to-calf circumference ratio. Not the best description though!

    See though, comparing crash rates on segregated routes vs integrated streets completely misses my point about rider and driver education and behavior. How does the overall crash rate in the census...

    Twelve weeks?! Who TF told you that (rhetorical question, I can guess pretty easily). That just makes me mad. Doctors have given me similarly ludicrous estimates on more minor things, but that's just...

    Yep. :D A car has so much more grip (than bici or moto), and it doesn't steer by leaning, so having a certain amount of controlled frame flex isn't critical to handling in a car the way it is with a...

    Glad he's doing better, anyway. I'm trying to develop some tolerance for the inevitable "someone else is sick, poor me," but I don't have a lot of patience for that attitude. That's one of the...

    Potentially slightly more relevant to this discussion is Ducati's failed experiment with a carbon fiber frame. The bike was famously too stiff and wouldn't steer. They've gone back to aluminum for...

    All true ... and all to do with parenting, nothing to do with sports. Many of those are reasons I don't play music any more. I miss it a lot, but it's just too fraught. And in contrast, as I said,...

    Glad you're healing! Definitely get some sunshine if you can, even if it's only sitting out ... it'll help your mood, besides vitamin D is so important for healing!
