Re: GCinDC's Giant DH Comp

i agree that it's a dick move to pass pedestrians fast, and almost always slow down to normal bike speed, tweet my bell well in advance and say sorry when i pass. i have at times passed some peds fast, but didn't mean to and regret it. i can't stand it when they do it me when i'm walking. it's a dic...

Re: GCinDC's Giant DH Comp

How is motor heating on trip home? so far so good, but when ambient is 90-100F, i expect the controller to start limiting power near the top of my hill, when the motor gets to ~320F... in early July, i'll be commuting to crystal city, so a bit longer, and not sure the route yet, so that'll be inter...

Poll: How tight is your grip pressure?

I've been curious lately how tightly folks grip the handlbars when riding. Please respond to the poll and feel free to comment. Is a tight grip always best, in case you hit an unexpected bump/pothole, where a loose grip could result in losing the grip and falling? Does your grip pressure vary for co...
