I grew up on Walmart bikes and they were always slightly janky, I still had fun on them though. They're good up to a certain point I think, but you have to graduate from them eventually. Definitely...

This is a very interesting topic, and one that really has no end of arguments. I'll weigh in here as a father of 4, step-father of 2, and grandfather of 4. So I've seen my share of kids growing up on...

We've been perfectly happy with a cheap Retrospec trailer, starting at 18 months. It's definitely heavier than a Burley, and it doesn't turn into a stroller. But for daylong tours and daily...

I enjoy commuting, running errands and doing fully loaded tours riding the same bike.

I think what you meant is that you need the right type of bike(s) for the type(s) of riding that you do.

This works 100% of the time.

Stop the bike and put it between you and the dog. It's highly unlikely you can outrun a large dog on a bike anyway, and trying will just make it chase you more. ...

I usually just guzzle a Coke and attack a bag of Doritos while sitting on a curb in front of a gas station.
