Almost as much as last year's 5425.3km. If it wasn't for an ankle injury that kept me off the bike for a couple weeks back in October I would have gotten close to 6000km. Maybe next year.

Same here. The morning ride to work varies very little. But the afternoon ride home can vary quite a bit, especially when the weather is nice.

Just shift the chain onto the smallest rear cog before removing the rear wheel.

Personally if I have two tires of different widths I but the wider one in front.

Giant Escapes are nice hybrids. I ride a Giant Rapid which is a sportier (and slightly pricier) hybrid.

Nothing wrong with commuting on a hybrid.

+1
Also the powder is cheaper than the bottled stuff. You can also control the ratio with the powder as I prefer my sport drink a bit more diluted than normal.

I've worn both the Exustar & Northwave's in tempatures from about -20C to 10C (-4F to 50F). At around 0C I'd have to switch to thick whool socks. The Exustar would start getting too warm over 5C...

Our forcast has 15 of snow plus ice pellets & freezing on top of that.

At least that stuff won't stick around long since it'll average +10C all of next week.
