"Yasmeen DID respond to your "direct" question. "I was hoping you'd make an effort to learn about what women face when riding a bike rather than try to flip the tables using false logic." She just didn't take the bait."

"I would take that opening EVERY time. This is a peeve?!? Why on God's greenhouse-gassed Earth would this be a problem? Please don't tell me how it "makes ALL cyclists look bad." I don't subscribe."

curt(is) locke replied to Ernesto Lube's discussion Bicycle Stable
"I forgot 1989/1991 Quattro Assi (aluminum) -Picked this up last spring off of Craigslist (definitely a n+1.) It became my first string quarterback while the Litespeed spent months in recovery from a car crash. It was sneaky fast, trashy flash (gold…"

"The fleet  as I prefer to call it (as I hate the use of "stable" when referring to a collection of bicycles) in order of preference: 1986/87 Litespeed (titanium) -I hope to ride this bike until I can ride no more. I am at least its…"

"Didn't think they still made the Centurion Ironman by '95. I always dismissed them as a marketing gimmick riding on Dave Scott's name-brand (although, in the spirit of full disclosure, I never rode one either.) I have come to…"

"Although this stretch of "Lake Shore Drive" (the realigned US 41) IS a favorite passage, I don't quite understand this as "cycling news." And I DO love this roll through the old South Works. While it does lie along the Lake…"

curt(is) locke replied to Yasmeen's discussion Cyclist Hit on Natchez Trace, Driver Speaks Out
"He didn't see the cyclist and the cop feared for his life. The standard defense. I don't find any of this particularly useful -- the video nor the painfully predictable YouTube commentary. "Maybe" the video will make a…"
