Confusion, Sweet Confusion: The Commuter Relief Act

Two weeks ago, on June 1st, I wrote an article for Commute by Bike explaining the Commuter Relief Act. This proposed piece of legislation was introduced by longtime bicycle advocate U.S. House Representative Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore, and it seeks to incentivize “public transit benefits, vanpools, and other market-based solutions.” One of the provisions that was […]

Internal Hub Meets Shaft Drive

Last week I received a shaft-drive commuter bike from Dynamic Bicycles. The model is the Crossroads 8.

You probably wouldn’t think of hundreds of bike commuters […]

Juxtaposition: Timbuk2 Control and Chrome Salvage

I’ve heard about two new bike bags this week. Seeing them side-by-side, there’s an irony there somewhere, and I can’t put my finger on it. Timbuk2 has a new laptop case called the “Control” which is “TSA Compliant.” Control… Compliant… Control… Compliant… What makes this bag TSA Compliant is that you can open it up […]
