    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    I can't remember if I've posted this before but here is a website that computes the sunrise and sunset times based on your lat/long, city/state/country, or airport name. It's great for those who commute in the dark (morning or evening), and would like to know how long they'll be in the dark. I like it because it tells me how many minutes of daylight I'll have for the ride home, based on the "Civil Twilight". The civil twilight means it will be daylight for ~20 minutes longer than actual sunset.

    Scroll down in the left column to "Sunset times" and click on it. Then follow the steps (1-5) in the right hand column and click compute.

    is the best I've found and it also has sunrise/sunset times as well as a bunch of other things. Scroll down to Astronomy section for more than you'll ever care to know about the sun & moon!

    Get a whole years worth of data at http://aa.usno.navy.mil/. The page you're looking for is under Data Services.

    I export the data into Excel and generate a nice plot, so much more convienent than looking outside the window.

    Try Tide Tool on a Palm PDA... handy, portable, and tells the local tides too.

    I have to admit to paying little attention to sunrise and sunset times in my part of the world, particularly for commuting. They don't change all that rapidly, so there's plenty of warning for the shorter days just by riding the commute everyday. Also, because I ride at the same time every day, there's little I can do about riding in the dark, except simply being prepared for it, which has never failed me so far.
