Mounting a flashing 700 lumen light right where it's best positioned to hit a driver's eyes directly, what could go wrong?

Bollard on right, 2 poles on left, curb right before the mess, and a strange manhole situation right after, what could go wrong?

I can never seriously give people gearing advice because I'm a genetic freak who cruises best at level in 53X11 or 53x12. I'm also a huge fan of the 1930s-1940s Popeye cartoons, but I'm really not...

I can't count the number of times I've had to stop in the middle of a climb so I can calculate the best gear ratio.

This is a pretty silly thread.

Following the string to get back home also negates the need for GPS. Of course, now we've got to debate which strings and cans have better aero characteristics.

The story you linked doesn't actually say that the truck was parked. We have no way of knowing what happened, the driver could have pulled to the right and stopped suddenly, for example.

Don't take this the wrong way, but how much below 128 pounds could you possibly get while maintaining decent muscle mass? In other words, wouldn't further weight loss just make you weaker?
