Hello Wheel Women of the world,I'm from Chicago and visiting Los Angeles April 6-10 to check out UCLA and see the city. This will be my first time in LA, and I'm so excited for my visit! I'm not able to rent a car (and it's more fun to adventure by bicycle anyhow), so I'd like borrow or rent a bike while I'm in town.I'm 5'7'' and staying with a friend in Santa Monica - does anyone have an extra bike I could borrow or know of a good rental place? Of course, I would love, cherish, and ride as if it were my own. I'm be happy to pay cash, take you out to coffee, or bring you popcorn, Midwestern souvenirs, or any other food-snack type thing you might crave.Thanks, Wheel Women!

Hi everyone! Would love some advice. I am outgrowing my current bike and have gone a bit overboard on upgrades and modifications. After a little thought, I think I need to "start over" and get a new bike. I have had mine for 18 months. I realized there was one thing keeping me from hitting my goal: making all trips 3-5 miles away by bike. And it is a big one: hills. I am surrounded by them! My step-through frame, while fine on the flats, really sucks on the hills. And this plays out in me taking an extra scenic route, or just avoiding riding my bike to some places that are close. Unfortunately the problematic ones are the steep ones. And there are some short, but steep inclines. They are hard to pedal up, and I experience toe overlap trying to stay balanced. When I mentally spec-ed out a bike, I realized the utility friendly features I wanted aren't readily available on stock bikes. So I am debating, but leaning towards getting a frame and building up from there. Looking at using a mite frame and adding on my key features: internally geared hub, dynamo lighting, fenders, racks, chain case and upright positioning. Have you built from the frame up? How did the process go? Any caveats I should be warned about?

Hi All,I've gotten a little frustrated trying to find a chamois cream without a bunch of suspicious ingredients (Doc's is as close as I've come), so I thought I'd like to try to make some myself. BUT... now I'm having trouble finding an appealing recipe.  I try not to put anything on my body that wouldn't be safe to eat. I'd like to stay as natural as possible, but I do a lot of riding and I definitely need to use chamois cream on longer rides.  Has anybody experimented with this? Any recipes? Any advice? Or recommendations for a great product I don't know about?Thanks.

Hey everyone. I know this isn't directly related to biking, but since it's good to ask all your support circles for help, I thought I'd ask here.I'm finishing up a 6 month intensive coding bootcamp and in a month, I'll be on the job-hunt. If anyone knows of a good place in the East Bay or BART-able SF that is hiring, let me know. I'd love to work for a place in Oakland or Berkeley, where I could bike to. And I'd like it to be women-friendly and have little-to-no brogrammer culture. I know Ruby on Rails and JavaScript, but I can learn other languages. My personal project is a webapp that lets a user track their car-free trips and how many emissions they save by walking, biking, or taking public transit. It's not finished yet, but I can share it when it is.

Hey Bikey Peeps! I will be in Austin, TX for four days in late June to attend a conference. I've never been to Austin before but I'm told it's a cool city! I've lined up a homestay situation about a mile from the conference venue and maybe two and a half miles from the official hotel (where late-night stuff will happen). I'd like to see if it's possible to borrow or rent a city bike and kid trailer to tow my guitar back and forth during my visit. I'd also welcome cool places to eat and walk in Austin as I will have a little free time. Does anyone know of possibilities? I will be staying in the Northwest Hills neighborhood (zip code 78731).

Hub Bicycle, a great local bike shop, has started a powder coating business in addition to their regular shop activites. Emily, the owner, does the powder coating herself, I believe. They are running  a winter special through the end of March where you can get your bike overhauled and frame powdercoated for $300, including disassembly and reassembly. I went for it, and am glad I did. My well loved daily commuter looks brand new, and rides like a dream. Turnaround time was pretty amazing - four days from dropoff to pickup. I thought others in the area might be interested as well.http://hubbicycle.blogspot.com/2015/02/spring-makeover-special-bike-overhaul.html

Hi everyone, Hope your week is going well. I have only just read this one article on this bike frame that objectifies women which was displayed at the recent North American Handmade Bicycle Show: http://redkiteprayer.com/2015/03/nahbs-2015-part-v/ My thoughts so far are - Not cool - whatever colour. I can see there being an uncomfortability over censorship of craft, but if it objectifies, or minimalizes part of the community, shouldn't that take precedence? There are only men's opinions in the article, so what are your thoughts? If you have read any other interesting articles on this particular frame or subject, it would be interesting to read them as well - so please share:) To the journey with more women cycling! Kristi
