    I really haven't been doing much recreational riding at all. I moved and left my recumbents in Salt Lake (I return to Salt Lake on a regular basis). As such I have a conventional bike and it is too...

    Without a question, disc brakes.

    From that point on you need to decide what kind of conversion. A hub motor will work better, be safer, when attached to steel. You may think about where you will...

    I also have a string tearing problem and to deal with it I wear goggles whenever it is, or is below, freezing. My goggles do fit over my goggles; but they tend to fog if I wear both.

    When I was...

    I have to agree, since returning to the states my bike costs are over $1/mile. I expect it to stay there for a while as I am looking into a tadpole trike for recreational riding and touring this...

    It is in the teens and high single digits here. I am wearing a pair of dockers and a pair of double-layer wind stopping over-pants. I have no idea what they are, I got them at a discount store...

    What I don't really get is that none of the magic shine style lights have the fernel defuser lens as standard. Using it turns the "cone" into a flat line. I think the basic shape can be improved on...

    I think he meant fun to ride on However, I will add that it is also easier. This morning I found that I was avoiding the snow. It is hard to ride in and hides surprises. Instead I stayed on the ice...

    Another eTrex 20 user. I have downloaded OSM maps and it works well. I keep thinking of getting a cycling specific GPS; but, frankly this one does all I need.

    I know it sounds like heresy, I keep thinking of adding an electric motor. The cost holds me back; but every day I ride in 20+ mpg winds I reconsider.

    Those are what I went with, and have on the bike right now. They are a bit hard to mount and seem to slow me down a bit; but I haven't gone down or felt any slipping on ice. They do sound a bit odd.

    I have ridden several bents and I have never been uncomfortable with the visibility. In fact it is quite the opposite, it is unusual enough that it garners quite a bit of attention. Consider, people...

    I don't have one; but what comes to mind is a long tail recumbent trike. It just seems that it would be the most practical arrangement.

    -10c (14f) when I left to go to work today too. I wore a good and goggles. I will say that the biggest problem remains arriving at work all sweaty.

    I also notice that the combination of studded...

    A couple of years ago my daughter lost the keys to her cable lock. It was around the frame and not causing problems; but without the key she wanted it gone.

    I see the whole "fat Tyre" thing to be a fad that will pass. Sure, they will be around for specialty applications; but the popularity will wane. As it is I see them on th estreet being used where...

    When you order, be sure to pick up a defuser lens. They give the wider beam with a top cutoff.

    I have a dyno-hub on my bicycle. A couple of days a go, as an experiment, I also put on a cheap cree magic shine clone.

    There simply is no comparison, the cheap (about $15 for the light and...

    I am also going say you should go with the cheap magic shine clones mentioned above. However, if you get one also get the "defusing lens." This will spread the light wide and keep the beam low and...
