Jeff Schneider replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's your best bike for a Zombie Apocalypse?
"My body needs some warmth, too, so if I can survive so can the IG hub.  I guess I would ride my bike to Cabellas and load up on ammo and freeze dried camping food. Also, I would choose a steel frame, since it would be more difficult for zombies…"

Jeff Schneider replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's your best bike for a Zombie Apocalypse?
"Internal gear hub for all-weather use.  Schwalbe Marathon Plus or similar tires to avoid flats.  Roller brakes to I don't need new brake shoes.  Rack and pannier for scavenging for food and weapons."

Jeff Schneider replied to Reboot Oxnard's discussion Bikes vs. Cars: The Deadly War Nobody's Winning
"It's interesting that 'cyclists' are expected to be a self-policing community, in which there is collective responsibility for the acts of individuals, whereas OTOH, bad behavior by drivers is strictly the fault and responsibility of…"

Jeff Schneider replied to Yasmeen's discussion Flat Pedals vs. Clipping In - What do you prefer? Does it depend on the type of ride?
"I use SPD everywhere, including around town.  In the city, it just feels good to be securely fixed on the pedal, especially in wet weather.  I don't find clipping in to be any big deal, even if I have to do it every quarter mile.…"

Jeff Schneider replied to youth's discussion Route Through Des Plaines Going to Mount Prospect?
"I have almost the same commute.  I take a roundabout way; from the business park I go west to downtown Mt. Prospect, then weave around through the residential streets toward downtown Des Plaines.  From there, I take Algonquin across the…"

Jeff Schneider replied to Gene Tenner's discussion Are Divvy Riders Safer Than Other Cyclists? Data Says Yes
"These data don't allow any comparison to be made between Divvy riders and others.  But it's nevertheless very impressive that there have been so few injuries in so many trips.  I think that shows that cycling in general is quite…"

Jeff Schneider replied to Haddon's discussion Biking west to east I think I lost my soul. Reward if found.

Jeff Schneider replied to Jeremy's discussion Buying my first "real" bike. Need help making final decision!
"IMO any of these would be fine for riding around town.  I'd take the Raleigh, because the wider (and I think stronger, with heavier spokes) wheels would be advantageous on Chicago's rough streets.  The disc brakes are also…"
