The Idaho stop might be coming to California!  That would be awesome.

Bicycle-Related Legislation in California


Assembly Bill 122 will soon be read by the Transportation Committee in the California State Assembly. The bill will legalize the Safety Stop for bicyclists, allowing cyclists moving at a slow speed to treat certain stop signs as a yield in some situations. Supporters of the bill should send letters of support directly to the Chair of the Committee on Transportation, Assemblymember Laura Friedman.

Hi Barry,

Thanks for the clarification.

Hi Satish,

The FFBC board has not yet reopened the calendar for rides.  This is a topic that the board discusses every meeting and, coincidentally, there is a board meeting followed by a club meeting this evening (see David's prior post).  

To make things easier for me (as ride coordinator) once we do reopen, I have kept all the recurring rides on the calendar and have deleted them a couple of weeks ahead of time.  One thing you can count on for sure is that most if not all the rides posted on the April calendar will not occur, and any rides initially posted once we do reopen will be in a restricted form similar to last fall.

Hope this clarifies things.

Hi,
  I see group rides listed in the online ride calendar starting in April. Is that true or just wishful thinking on my part?

Re: Sad Notice

Mike Moore
 

I am sorry to hear that and offer my condolences to Jon’s friends in our group.

I had the opportunity to ride with him in a club ride in the South Bay to Gilroy some years back.  He was off the back and I rode along with him.   He was really smart and had a lot of ideas.  I remember a long discussion about shoes and foot protection.   I regret not having had other opportunities to learn more from and about him.  

Best,

Mike

2010 Giant Defy Adv 3 (upgraded Shimano 5800 drive train and Ultegra wheels) for sale

West Kurihara
 

I'm selling my daughter's 2010 Giant Defy Adv 3.  It's in very good condition, very
 stiff BB and headtube for race bike like efficiency and response even though this is a longer wheelbase
 endurance bike from 2010.  It was upgraded about 3 
years ago with an all Shimano 105 5800 11spd drive train, brakes, levers, and Shimano Ultegra Wh-5800 tubeless/tube compatible 
wheels.  These wheels will work equally well with tubless or tubed tires.  Without peddles or pump, it tips the scales at around 17 lbs.
  The frame is fully composite carbon with a 
carbon fork with AL steerer tube.  Comes with a 10cm Ritchey 17 degree stem.  Steerer tube was never cut so there is
quite a lot of adjustment possible in combination with the stem.  Gearing is compact 50x34 and 11/32 rear 11 speed Shimano
105 cluster.  Frame size in Giant's sizing methodology is a Size S, suited to height range of 5'5" to 5'9".  Comes with
Schwalbe One Tubeless tires, 25mm width.  I'll also include the Look Keo peddles if you want them or remove them. 
Reference info links below:
Frame sizing reference (Giant has not changed the geometry much over the years)

Asking $750 firm for the bike as is.  

Please email me directly with any questions.

Many of you are seeing an email supposedly from me. The subject line is “REQUEST” and the body is: 
Hi <first name>,

I need you to get something sorted out as soon as you can , Let me know if you are available now .

Regards,
David Walker.

You’d receive it with an address like secretary@... from an email address like president1234@gmail.com. This is fake. I believe that someone has scrubbed the website for names and email adresses. Do not respond to these emails. Probably best to simply delete them, but let me know if you received one. That way, maybe we can figure out what happened.

Sorry for the kerfluffle.

Piedmont Ave San Jose Construction 10/28 through November

Yahoo-Julie
 

All - FYI if you were planning a ride towards Alum Rock anytime after today thru November. I cycled there today and there are ‘no parking signs due to road construction‘ for dates indicated from San Jose north border @ Landess stretching southward. I believe this will be a resurfacing which is truly needed and will be great to ride when completed.

Re: Garmin recommendations.

Jennifer Reungchai
 

Hi Donna,

I know your question was for Garmin but the wahoo has been a very reliable and easy bike computer to use as well. It has extremely good battery life and the screen is more saturated than the Garmin so the data is more viable to see even at any light angle. I also enjoy the simplicity of editing the data pages on my phone by instead of pushing the buttons on the small computer. I’ve had mine for over 3 years and it is still good as new. I’m not sure if Garmin has this feature but the wahoo has a simplified topagraphy image so I can tell how far along I am on a climb so I can pace myself better. 

Best regards,
Jennifer

Hi Donna, 
Lots of good advice on this thread.  I would definitely advise against the 520+.  Read dcrainmaker’s review of the edge 530 and it becomes readily apparent.  I replaced my edge 520 with the 530 mainly because of lack of memory for more complex routes and slow processor performance for navigation.  I actually love my previous garmins, edge 500, 520, but they were just getting too old and not able to keep up with the navigation capabilities of newer computers.  


Anyhow, the battery life is excellent and I especially like the WiFi capability and automatic ride download to Garmin Connect=>Strava.  

There are lots of other feature I like, but as Jay says, it just works and works well.  I’ve owned garmin edge 130, 500, 520, 530 and a couple of Lezyne super micro computers.  All of them had their quirks but I must say that so far, the edge 530 has been the least quirky so far with a really rich feature set and lots of flash memory (16GB) so it should e be good for many years of use.
That’s sort of a sideways complement for Garmin.

Donna,

West pointed me to the 530 and I have been very happy with it... it has a great battery life and it works... I had a touch screen and ultimately I did not like it especially in the winter with long finger gloves... the 530 is controlled with buttons.  I strongly recommend this unit over the 520+

My Garmin Edge 500 has stopped working so I am in the market for a new one. I will probably go for a 520 Plus, but I am open to recommendations for one of the 800 or 1000 series if one of those seem worth the price. Pros? Cons? Opinions?

 

Feel free to reply just to me, luporini@..., and if anyone wants to hear responses, just let me know.
