While at Orange 20 Bikes we take solace in the knowledge that Yes, There's Good News Too, and follow up with The Bicycle Chain: a Primer.

Meanwhile, over at Flying Pigeon LA, I bemoan the fact that It Doesn't Have to Be This Way, as drivers kill and kill again in a corridor whose life-saving road diet has been blocked by a rogue council member….

GRID is entered in a competition for one of ten LA2050 grants of $100,000 each. This grant would let us concentrate on funding the CSUN feasibility study we need to convince venture capitalists that GRID would provide a good return on their investments, and so let us move towards actual design and construction. Details on how the grant would help, and on GRID itself, are on our project page at LA2050's GOOD.is website, where you and your friends can vote for GRID to be one of the ten grant winners. Simply go to the URL below and place your vote! It's easy and quick, and could kickstart the future of Southern California by helping GRID move that much closer to becoming a reality. (It does require creating an account, but LA2050 has nothing to sell and will not spam you.)

At Flying Pigeon LA I talk about my own personal Lighting Enlightenment, and why it's a really good idea to put lamps on your bike.
While at Orange 20 Bikes, I once more contrast some delightful and effective bicycle facilities on the Westside with the paucity of same in my own part of town, in East Side, West Side, and throw in some recommendations for the LA2050 grants, reminding folks that these LA2050 Grant Applicants Need Your Vote!.

We received a large number of seconds on this design, and are selling them off now for cashflow at a few dollars over our cost. The 34s listed below have a longer rise than intended, and a correspondinlgy higher waist, so the fit is very old-school. (The 32s are normal, but we're discounting them as well.) The legs will also be a bit roomier than we had specified in the pattern. Labels may be incorrect as well.
No factory, even an American one, is immune to error. Everything else on these knickers is up to spec. Normally these sell for $135.00; you can now buy them for only $75.00 while they last. Scroll down for more details. No returns at this price!
