I am a daily bicycle commuter already, though my current route is only 6 miles each way compared to close to 20 miles for what is going to be my new commute.

I am curious if anyone has any...

I got my wife the bike she wanted, three years ago. She rode it a couple of times, then it sat in the garage collecting dust, until a few months ago. Now she rides it almost every day. She has...

I don't know yet how long it will run. I suspect longer than 1hr since the one I used last year was rated the same and it lasted for about 90 minutes, but I won't know for sure until I drain it. My...

Headlights

I commute year 'round, and have a few different flashlights I have used to see during the months where daylight is a precious commodity.

I just picked up a new one for this winter and mounted it...
