"This is really a must read. It's a two-way street and we are so early in the evolution of bikes as transportation that the rules that govern both our rights and responsibilities as cyclists are just being written. Skips blog sets a perfect tone…"

"#2 should apply to everyone! Drivers and cyclists. It makes it so much easier to figure out who's doing what. I wish there was more enforcement for this infraction, I think it has gotten worse in the last few years."

Three things all cyclists and motorists should do

I have a blog. I almost never write anything. I've been thinking a lot recently though about the fundamental ways cyclists differ from motorists. I reached a couple conclusions about that, but in the process, it also led me to think about how they are the same, and what actions should be common to them.http://smontanaro.blogspot.com/2014/10/three-things-all-cyclists-and-motorists.html See More

"I am sympathetic. My first single-speed was a Schwinn Madison with flip-flop hub. I tried it once fixed, rode it down to the end of the block, then home, and switched back to the freewheel. I rode it that way until it was stolen sometime later. Fast…"

"maxy, super maxy, mighty competition, super mighty competition, grand mighty (75?)..any others?" that's from a bikeforums thread. it seems like there are tons of variants on 'mighty' 'grand' etc. their model names are so grandiose.
