I carry a pair of Sealskinz socks in my pannier, and break them out if I have to ride in the rain. Shoes are Lake winter cycling boots in winter, Keen cycling sandals in summer.

Ah, got it, thanks. I was interpreting it as you had to be voted in just to be a rank and file member; I'd forgotten that deacons, elders and such were elected. We had that in our church too when I...

I use a helmet mirror now, and have used bar end mirrors in the past, but I still always do a head turn before moving into a lane.

The belt itself doesn't make wheel removal any more difficult than with a chain. But most belt-drive bikes use an IGH on the rear wheel (unless it's a single speed bike). This means that when you...
