2012 in review

Thanks to all our followers for making this happen!

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,200 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

Staff Picks – Delta Smartphone Caddy II

What does the staff at BikeWorldUSA have to say about our products?
Staff Member: Shawn, Customer Service Rep.
Item: Delta Smartphone Caddy II (BA698)
Description: Need a decent gadget to Hold your IPhone Or Android? This is the way to go and even better, it’s affordable! 
What Shawn Likes: This Delta product has been on my bike for a year now and I have no negatives so far about it. It keeps the phone where you can see it and accessible when using any bike GPS app on your smartphone. This can mount right to your Stem if you have a thread-less set up and also comes with a mount in case you don’t have the option to set it up directly to your stem. And of course I highly suggest not using this for TEXTING WHILE RIDING!
What Shawn Doesn’t Like: Only negative aspect is that this does not come with a rain cover which i’m sure you can get separately.

3. Brake Pads (make sure they aren’tworn and they tightly grip the wheel when the brakes are squeezed.)

Cycling Etiquette

Just found this great post from Bike Noob on Cycling Etiquette!

Bike Noob

The president of the cycling club I belong to usually takes the lead in organizing club rides. He traditionally starts the Sunday morning ride, which is our “main” ride of the week. He’s got years of riding experience under his pedals, and is happy to share his ideas about cycling with anyone.

Last week, he posted on our club Yahoo group some points of cycling etiquette. He gave me permission to use them on the blog. “They may or may not work for you,” he wrote, “but at least you will know why I am doing what I am doing the next time we ride together.” Here they are:

•Passing other cyclists on either the right or left is OK as long as you can safely get by. Corollary: if there is no room to pass on either side then passing is not OK.

•You are responsible for your own…
