    Dreaded cyclists

    I expressly pointed out that I don't do those things and seeing cyclists who do those things annoys me. Are you saying I'm a liar?

    Dreaded cyclists

    Yeah, that's it. My self-deprecating post, where I go out of my way to make fun of my "pea brained" self is "dick waggling". I spend an entire paragraph discussing how much I despise cyclists who break the rules and readily admit that such behavior exists. Meanwhile you admit no fault of...

    Dreaded cyclists

    I'm a lifelong road cycling, mountain biking and cyclocross (look it up) racer now approaching fifty, after reading this thread I reeally want to get some of you out of a bike. Maybe give a little balance to this thread by allowing some of you to witness the dumbassery we cyclists see every day...

    5/10 Unfunny, anodyne, character-less, unoriginal, blunted twaddle.

    This was a truly entertaining episode. The Canada sequence was (of course) totally staged but effective escapist fun. One niggle: pretending a super-exclusive, megabuck Hennessey-tuned Raptor is the equivalent of an off-the-lot, luxed-out Silverado gentleman cowboy special that costs is a...

    [22x04] February 15th, 2015

    Pretty good "mid-season" episode overall. So let me get this straight, the i8 is significantly slower than any competing car (and many far cheaper cars), doesn't get nearly the gas mileage promised and is overall a horribly impractical, complicated, needlessly flashy and extremely pricey car...

    Dreaded cyclists

    So this has predictably degenerated into internet tough guys making jokes about killing cyclists. As a frequent cyclist who constantly deals with fat, goatee-sporting, macho assholes with douchebag "Fear This" stickers on their trucks who think it's funny to needlessly put my life at risk, I...

    Why You Should Own A Corvette

    It's possible, just possible that a few things may have changed in 20+ years.

    Dreaded cyclists

    This is a strawman. No serious cyclist I know (and I know a lot) would say that you were wrong about any of these things or attempt to defend any of these behaviors. Also, I could just as easily make a nice strawman list about some of the dangerous behaviors I see drivers doing around bikes...

    So you cut a cyclist off and then honked at them?

    Dreaded cyclists

    Cycling season has started up again, time for me to list my pet peeves with drivers: 1. Don't lurk 50 yards behind a cyclist for mile after mile if there's no one in the opposite lane. Just pass me, you're making me nervous. I promise I won't suddenly swerve in front of you, honest injun. 2...

    Yes, that one. I apologize for not being more specific.

    Dreaded cyclists

    I'm an avid cyclist. I ride 200 miles + a week when I can here in Chicago. Regarding that video: 1. It seems clear there was some sort of event/race/charity ride going on. That was an unusually massive number of cyclists. 2. That's a very narrow scenic byway. It doesn't exactly look like a...

    2014 Camaro Z28 attacks the N?rburgring Nordschleife

    I get that the Z28 is a track monster but at $75k, why not just get a lightly used '12 Z06 for $10k-20K less? This much performance, this much rubber and this stiff a suspension is unusable on the street, it only really makes sense on a track. A regular SS is right around half the price and...

    Jalopnik: 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Has 620 Horses, 650 Pound Feet Of Torque

    It's a gimmick. So is the painted-on emblem on a GT3 or the adjustable camber on a Porsche GT.

    Jalopnik: 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Has 620 Horses, 650 Pound Feet Of Torque

    This car is likely the most hardcore track day special ever sold by a mainstream Detroit auto maker. Carbon ceramic brakes, many carbon body parts, Alcantara interior, 625 HP, 635 lb/ft, a true 7 speed manual as standard, Viper-esque barrels in the rear etc, etc. The Z07 aero package is like...

    Unveiled: 2014 Chevrolet SS

    The rear clip is nice and tight, the side profile is generic but fine. Howver, that front end looks like something off of a late-ninties generic American family sedan. Flabby, anodyne and boring. Given the rear wheel drive, anticipated mid-40s pricing and bizarrely retrograde styling, this is...

    Jalopnik: 2014 Corvette Revealed!

    I think this car looks great. I'm enjoying some of the Europeans in comments over on tie themselves into logic knots trying to hate this car.

    Let's count how many ways you're wrong... No, it's perceived as an American muscle car... that costs $35K for an SS version here in the states. This is a classic European's misperception. We don't really go for domestic sports cars here. Luckly, 911s, Italias and the like are available here...
