I bought my son an Osprey Momentum 26 about a year and a half ago. I bought a 2012 Momentum 34 ($105 at REI) for myself before they were discontinued back in July. Neither of us can really find...

Commuting while sick

Sniffles blossomed into a full blown lung infection. That was it. If I can't breathe, I can't exactly bike. Spent three days at home trying to recover. Still having coughing fits so I'm just going to...

My old route was a happy one for almost half the distance just because it was on a nicely manicured trail. And then I started having a lot of run-ins with skunks one year so I just rode in on the...

Just one Radbot 1000 for me (backpack), although I'd eventually like to run a second one somewhere on the bike.

All I did was share a video that shows a truck cutting me off (not closely enough for some "hardcore" individuals apparently). I took that video and made the company and driver accountable for their...

My old route, my old bike, I knew I could trip all the induction loops and therefore would stop at each and every light. New route, new bike and I can't get a single light to detect me, so I'm left...

I noticed some green bike lanes on E. Hedding, but these aren't what I would call protected...just green-colored lanes.

I've had 'em closer than that, but yeah, that's it (I'm pretty sure that's enough). My point is that this truck is a rolling billboard representing the company. Driving stupidly may not be a good...

The power of a cam

Yesterday, on my ride home, I was cut off by a dumpster bin hauler. Long story short, I uploaded the footage to my YT page and sent the link to the company. Within hours I received a written apology...

I had the same issues as you with my first commuter. Too upright, too heavy and too slow. But I didn't want to settle when it came to switching from a hybrid to a road bike, so I saved my money until...

Stacked flats.

About a year ago I was riding home, heard the clang of something metallic rattling in the street and suddenly my rim on concrete. I was close to one of my school sites, so I limped...

Derailleur meltdown

I had a HUGE learning curve with tubes/tires when I first started commuting. Manhandle and tear the stem while inflating? Check. Over-inflate until *pop*? Check. Fail to check the tire for sharp...

No clue what the sweet spot might be, but I'm going to drop from 11 to 7 very soon when I move. The miles were never the issue. Having to ride on the expressway in the dark (45-65 mph traffic) for...

Clean cycling gear and a shower before leaving. Cool down for ten, then clean washcloth and water. Apply deodorant; fix hair (if applicable). Thrown on street clothes. Done.
