This. Or Walmart and Starter brand. That's what all my t-shirts are for on the bike. Just bought 2 more last weekend for I think $5.98 each. Pockets full of stuff laying on my back isn't worth...

I said this in another thread.

Power saving settings. When it's not set to "normal" it will shut the GPS or app down until you pull it back up again. Now and then mine gets reset to "Smart" for...

I use to ride on dirt and gravel roads with my solid carbon fork hybrid (Giant Escape) and would have much rather had a front suspension.

Also, I ride through the high school a lot now and the...

I don't have a lot of big city experience. I've ridden in Pittsburgh a few times. Traffic is very slow and you don't have to do much sprinting to keep up or stay ahead it seems. I live in a...

Interesting, I run the GPS for 8-9 hours with RWGPS running. My GPS stays on with Airplane mode so if I think of it, I run it in Airplane mode.

I don't have data though, so that might be a power...

Nope. I stupidly turned the Flare 3 on in the store while looking at it. 4 hours later when I got my sight back, I took it up to the front desk. That's how I got my Bontrager light, LOL.

Not Strava. I use RidewithGPS. There's no social aspect as far as I know. I use it just to map everywhere I've been. Ticked me off last night as I rode around a couple new neighborhoods and...

Jealous of all you that can ride in the morning. I get up at 5 already and go to work. If I got up at 4, I'd just get ready and be at work at 5 instead of 6.

I'd love to ride to work. I sweat...

None, $10/month prepaid smartphone with text, $0.10 per minute for my 4 phone calls a year, and WIFI only. Divorced, I can't afford to spend half of what I have left on a monthly phone bill, LOL.

For me, much easier. The mustache area extends to right under the nose. A cartridge razor blade(s) covered in all that plastic can't get anywhere near that area. A good DE blade is sharp! Slices...

To plan, I think there is one out there. Maybe browse around or ask on Paddle.net. I don't plan. I just use RidewithGPS to track my paddling along with my cycling.

I have the Light and Motion Urban 800. I like it specifically because it pulses rather than flashes.

Just about anywhere in PA that is not Pittsburgh, Philly, or Erie?

Where I lived up until separation, 6 cars in 70 miles would have been a lot of traffic.
