    There are 2 ways to look at this: You can look at it as a matter of preference, which in that case whatever you want, works. But just realize that you're defeating the purpose of a chamois in shorts...

    You've never had to purchase Garmin's maps with any of their devices that will accept a card. Many, many people have burned their own maps from the day they bought an Edge or updated them using OSM...

    To me, though, the key question is what am I missing? When it comes to what many people use, the Edge 800 has most everything you care for, unless you want live tracking/cell phone linking.

    There are a few reasons more people in NYC don't own their own bike, but the chief one is space. Most don't have room in their apartment to store a bike and the Fire Department rigorously enforces...

    Honestly, I wouldn't ask. It's nobody's business as long as you're not storing it where you impede an exit. I mainly take my bike on actual vacations rather than biz travel, but I have taken it to a...

    I'm among those who think you may be ramping up on the wrong things and not doing enough of the right things. Seems to me, you're eating WAY too much, consuming too much sugar and not drinking enough...

    Not sure what's in their kit, but I have the Park Tool brush and personally find it works great -- much better than any "home brewed" device I've ever used, ranging from a toothbrush to a rag...

    One of the reasons there are so many issues with dirty chains is many people tend to use too much lube, which leads to attracting dirt, etc. When it comes to chain lube, less really is more,but you...

    In all likelihood, the season hasn't changed enough in your neck of the woods for the local shops to stock them in sufficient quantity yet. Even in the Northeast, things haven't gotten cold enough...

    Not to mention covers are probably the most practical option for the vast majority. While, relatively speaking, good winter shoes are the best option, many people will find they aren't going to get...

    That all makes sense to me, but FWIW I found Gatorskins to be about the longest-lasting tire around. Chances are, they'll develop sidewall defects before the tread will run out. I run GP4Ks on my...

    To me, the "menace" is not just the temps, but the wind. Typically, the wind really picks up regularly from mid-October until mid-February, although I'm near the foothills of the Ramapo Mountains,...

    For starters, the "maintenance" and "operational" costs of cycling are nothing compared to major sports like golf, baseball, football (either American or European), etc. So while cycling is never...
