    Continental Road Tires

    So I ordered a set of GP 5000 TLs in 700x28C on Amazon for my road bike a bit ago. They finally came about 2 weeks ago….from China. I was under the impression that Conti tires were made in Germany. Hell, the carcass of the tire says “Made in Germany” on it. I think I already know the answer but...

    That is a valid point. I have an 8 year old so I get it. I always seem to interpret these conversations as they relate to adults but I certainly don't mean to be dismissive of the virus and children. I am eagerly awaiting registration of the vaccine for the younger age groups.

    I always ride it but I concur that it's not the same as it was. It used to be way easier.

    Not the same. Some asshole not getting a vaccine and lying about it has nothing to do with me. It's his problem and the problem of all the other assholes that do the same thing. This whole mantra of getting into other people's business because you don't agree is getting old. And I mean "you" in...

    Disturbing "no helmet" trend

    Are we all getting trolled by Toyota or did their marketing department really not know any better? https://cyclingtips.com/2021/06/a-tough-day-for-toyotas-social-media-team/

    GX AXS Lives!

    I've used both Shimano and SRAM in the past but most recently SRAM. Even when using Shimano I always shifted both directions with my thumb.

    Raritan 911: Robocop

    Honestly, the police need more funding. That money should go to quality training. The reality is the police do get called for all the things you mentioned. They need to be trained to handle it. Reflecting upon the incident that started the whole “defund the police” movement, that training needs...

    GX AXS Lives!

    I fumbled around with the standard controller paddle for a couple weeks. Reversing the controls helped a little but I still had to consciously think about which way I was shifting or I would mis-shift. Anyway, I ordered the the “upgrade” rocker paddle that more closely resembles a mechanical...

    You’re right. I’m not arguing that. It’s still silly, though.

    Disturbing "no helmet" trend

    How was the cyclist "right?" He ran a stop sign and rode out in front of oncoming traffic. Without being able to see the signage facing the cars I would say the driver was wrong for leaving the scene but the collision was the cyclist's fault.

    Disturbing "no helmet" trend

    My dad taught me to ride this way when I was a "kid." He was a cop so pretty in tune with traffic laws and people's behavior behind the wheel, etc. It was his opinion that being predictable was key to staying safe on a bike on the road. When you're on the road, act like a car. Follow the rules...
