I'm sure you're careful but just please be super cautious when passing cars on the right when you're right at those side streets. I've seen too many videos of a car making a sudden right turn with...

I actually do have a USB output on my e-bike head unit, but didn't have a cable with me. I need to try it to see if it will charge a light while it's also in operation.

Thankfully we get almost zero snow and get ice only a couple of times each winter. If it's icy I usually just work from home. Boss doesn't want us out in it with all the crazy non-drivers. :thumb:

In case anyone cares, I made a video of what my commute looks like, which I've been wanting to do ever since I got a GoPro camera almost 2 years ago. 15 miles each way, 2/3 rural (10 miles closer to...

Brakes NOT screeching in the rain? lol that's usually the opposite of what happens to me. Wet = instant brake squeal, on my disc brakes especially.

Felt Z85 you say? Same bike I have. I personally would rather use an upright bike for sightseeing, like the CitiBikes. Granted I've never ridden one, as I've never been to NYC, but I hope to get...
