Interested in tubeless tires for your bike or want to make your tubes more flat proof?  Here's a product I recently had the opportunity to try, Blue Seal Tire Sealant.

+Ian Emmons Not sure yet.  I'll have to see how long it lasts.  And since there's no anti-freeze in it, it'll be interesting to see how it holds up through the winter.  Working good so far though.

I recently attended a workshop presented by the Carson City Public Works Department. The presentation outlined a proposal to create a bike and pedestrian friendly environment on Carson Street through the downtown area of Carson City. To my surprise, a strong opposition to this project showed up and soured the meeting. The record needed to be set straight.  Please read this article to learn more about this project, and see what the benefits will be.  If you've had any road diet projects in your community, please come leave a comment to share your success stories.

If you’re new to tubeless bicycle tires, you may not be aware that they need periodic maintenance. Although a tire may continue to hold air indefinitely, flat protection can diminish after just a few months as the sealant drys up. In addition to adding fresh sealant, it’s best to remove the old sealant for best performance.

Has racing adversely influenced cycling? Have we forgotten the basic principles of riding a bike, that it's an affordable and practical means of transportation, and it's also a lot fun?

A few weeks ago, the Bike Habitat let us demo a couple Salsa Mukluk Fat Bikes. We rode them in Sand Canyon and up at Lake Tahoe. And we had a LOT of fun. Here's the full report!

Dusty trails, wild horses, steam locomotives, old mining towns, and rowdy saloons. You’d have to be watching an old western movie, right? Not if you mountain bike in Carson City! Just saddle up your bicycle, load up some water and provisions, and ride up into the mountains.

I was recently reading local commentary titled, Driving is Interesting and an Adventure in Carson City. The title is sarcastic, the article really expressing the author’s frustrations with driving in our city. Here's my take on things, but from a cyclist's point of view!

One of the most common accidents involving a bicyclist and a motor vehicle is the right-hook. My friend Jason got right hooked today, run over by a truck, and lived to tell about it.

Great to be back in the saddle after nearly 3 months off the bike!

In the aftermath of the super storm that battered the Northeast, many have turned to bicycles for transportation. Is a bicycle part of your disaster preparedness kit?
