"In the city avg is 10 mph but I ride a standard cog and fixed is more about flow than speed and stopping.
Back when I rode the LFP to work on a 21 speed I'm guessing 20-25mph because I could do it in 30 minutes Ardmore to IBM/house o Blues…"
"My average speed is determined far more by the environment I ride in (city streets) than it is by how hard I ride, unless I am on an off-street path or out somewhere not-crowded. But I always seem to cruise at a level that keeps my heart rate pretty…"
"I normally think in terms of tenths but that's easy enough to convert:
Commuting this time of year I usually ride at 4-5 tenths effort so between a 13-17.
Commuting in warmer weather usually at 5-7 tenths effort depending on mood, wind etc. so…"
"According to my husband, I just don't know how to go at any speed slower than pushing myself to the max. He is probably right, but my "max" is not really all that fast--usually between 10-14mph. Wish I could blame the bike, but I…"
"In the city, I am really careful. I obey all signals, stop for pedestrians (always), etc. When I am moving, I get up to a decent speed, so my average, with all the stops, is usually not much more than 10 mph. But I am old, and more…"
"If I'm physically up for it and conditions are good, I push myself as much as I can. I enjoy biking, but I want to get home/to work as quickly as possible when I'm commuting. I have no idea how fast, though."
I'm a journalism grad student at Northwestern, and I'm writing an article on the Divvy bikes. I noticed you'd commented on one of the Divvy threads. Do you mind if I ask you some questions for my article? I've included a couple Qs below. My deadline is at 4:00, sorry for the late notice! Please let me know if you'd be able to help, I would so appreciate it!
- How much do you use Divvy? How much do you use your other bikes? - What have your Divvy experiences been like? - Do you bike during the winter? Will you Divvy during the winter?
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Once again-- thanks so much!
I have one set of Superbe Hubs. They are currently laced into some Mavic GEL280 sew-up wheels. No superbe shifters. I do have one set of Superbe-Pro track pedals NIB (never been on a bike... or even out of the box except to take some photos). I'm the original owner. Now those are definitely a diamond in the rough. $100 if you want 'em.
