Amazon Bike Commuting Store

http://www.amazon.com/b/ref=amb_link...d_i=B007FTD1G4

You know bike commuting is getting more popular when Amazon dedicates a page to it.

Everything I use for commuting is also used for weekend riding and touring. In other words, there is nothing bike-related I own that is used exclusively for bike commuting. Kind of pointless, but perhaps newbs would find this helpful.

What you know, is that Amazon has defined a segment of buyers that they can target more ads to. There're probably "stores" for soap makers and chakrah aligners too.

$40 is a good price for this pedal!



I have the Wellgo equivalent, and I love it.

I gotta agree, I have the older Shimano ones and it's very nice.
