When I do a longer ride, typically to my church, I just toss on a...

I buzz mine (#2), but I still get helmet creases in my hair. So I wear a cycling cap under the helmet. Works wonders because it prevents the creases, and also protects from the sun.

I have not really had someone slow down and yell at me. I did have a guy yell at me to get on the sidewalk as he went by me at 40mph. Nobody has hung around to yell at me for anything....yet.

If you do want to carry a spare pair, minimalist shoes are nice (more of the running style). They typically will lay quite flat in a pack.

Steel is nice for comfort, but some don't like having to check for rust spots and use touch up paint.

That is why I am so afraid of those bikes. Being in Texas, we have a ton of long flats. Even my Trek Transport cargo bike is set up for a more aero position than upright. If I had nothing but...

I've been eying the Trek CrossRip Elite lately. Fender and rack ready, comes with 32c's as well. Just not a fan of the Sora shifters.

I have also heard of some stores offering discounts if you use a bike as transportation. I suppose the thought behind it is to not only help the environment, but also cut down on taken parking spots.
