7/29    I have a 70's road bike I ride to work.  A few months back I replaced
        the rear wheel and tire, then I put a set of old 70's rear baskets
        on it.  The baskets are great in general, with them I don't have to
        wear a backpack and I can carry a lot more.  However, they are heavy.
        Since I put them on 2 months ago I've had 3 flat tires in back,
        compared to 1 in the year previous.  I think the extra weight is wearing

9/25    "BART gets an equivalent to 249 miles per gallon during the peak
        commute hours."
        http://www.bart.gov/news/barttv/?&cat=27&id=362
        \_ I assume that 249 miles per person per gallon,  which means my
           carpool gets 120.
           \_ That's correct.  My carpool of two on a Prius only gets 102. --OP

8/7     JD Power dependability study:

        "Toyota's Prius hybrid was the top-ranked vehicle in the compact car
        segment."
        Hybrid cars are not inherently less reliable.

8/7     Russians naively buy American SUVs for their off-road capabilities and
        get into trouble. Hilarious!
        http://englishrussia.com/?p=2001
        \_ This is funny!  Those SUV drives don't know off-roading.  1. Lock
           the differentials, or apply the gas and the brake at the same time.
           2. Put a piece of wood under each wheel.

7/23    Are all traffic engineers imbeciles or is it just the Silicon
        Valley? I was at an intersection where the green light was
        letting cars through 2 seconds at a time on an 8-lane street
        but letting cars through a minute at a time for a 4-lane street.
        \_ Pretty much all imbeciles. In my city there's a road that has
           two lights in close succession - maybe 20 feet from each other.

6/30    Has anyone used this bicycle hoist?  Is it good?  Is it worth using if
        I bike on a daily basis? -emarkp

        \_ I use it to SAVE SPACE but it does TAKE TIME to put it on.
           You're trading TIME for SPACE. Nothing comes for free. If space
           is a PREMIUM like my little apartment, this is a really great

        http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20080523/us_nm/usa_driving_data_dc
        \_ With gas now over $4 per gallon even at cheap places, it costs
           me $10 per day ($5 for gas, $5 for parking) to drive to work,
           and that's by picking up people for casual carpool. That's a
           tipping point for me, so I'm going back to public transport,
