Urban Cycling / Re: what bike do you use for pure urban ridin'?

I'm about to get a Mongoose XR-comp bike for my "urban" cruising.  I'm hoping to get it next month when I get paid.  The suspension is mostly not needed for urban terrain but I love the padding...

Urban Cycling / Re: top bicycle-friendly cities and towns

1 October 2008   St. Paul, MN
I live in St. Paul, moved from bicycle-friendly town and rural Iowa in '91. Recent St. Paul Pioneer Press articles are noting that the increased use of bikes is accompanied by car-bike accidents.  Several bike riders have been killed in the past three months in the Mpls-St. Paul area.  Most recent death was a woman biking in the afternoon on broad Summit Avenue. Clearly bike riders and car drivers need to ramp up their safe behavior and attentiveness.  As an example, bicyclists blowing through stop signs is the rule here. Better planning for bike traffic is needed, too.  

Forget St. Paul, come on over to Minneapolis for some great biking!  The bridge on 34th st is killer at night, have you seen it yet?

First city they should market it to is Minneapolis/St Paul.  I think there are more bike rides there than any other city in America!
