    I always carry a Steri-pen, and think it's pretty awesome. The weight is pretty trivial, it's easy to use and leaves the water tasting better than chemical sanitizers.

    I know plenty of people...

    I think what you need isn't so much a pannier as a harness for your briefcase. Buy a cheap pannier, cut off the bag section, leaving only the backing with the hooks, and then sew in a few nylon...

    I've seen one pair in the wild. It was on a Bruce Gordon frame, and had Rock and Road tires, those really fancy Bruce Gordon cantilever brakes, and those pedals. The rider was even...

    Fat Franks are Big Apples in pretty colors with decorative treads. They look nice at first, but cream tires get grungy pretty quick.

    I've used a Wald 867, and adored that handlebar, it has about 3 inches of rise, and the grips are more or less parallel.

    I've also used a Soma Oxford bar, and it's pretty fantastic as well. Same...

    More clever than I was expecting, but in terms of cost per utility, not overly convinced.

    and that hundred dollar bill is probably a superdollar.

    Steripen claims that the UV light does destroy the micro-organisms, and viruses and whatnot. It should be fine, even after a few days. I use one myself, and it's pretty awesome. It's trivial to treat...

    Don't worry about the insulation value of your sleeping pad, your mattress at home is much more insulating, and you can sleep on that.
