    Arkel Bug

    Anyone use an Arkel Bug pannier? I'm considering getting one for the 8 mile commute into work. I need to carry my laptop, a few books, papers, maybe a change of clothes, etc. Just wondering if anyone...

    Both the cyclist and the driver are aggressive. You've got a driver who seems to intentionally (or ignorantly) try to over run a cyclist, and then gets into a physical confrontation with the cyclist....

    Might look into Cyclocross. I have a Trek Lane (2011) I use for commuting/touring/fun riding. It's a little heavier then the wife's aluminum, but I aint aiming to set any speed records.

    Good bike; I had one of them when I first started commuting (I upgrade to a cyclocross for personal reasons). Fixing the chain should be pretty simple; sounds like it's just moving over to far when...

    Under Illinois law, you are permitted (and often expected, as it is illegal to ride on the sidewalk under city ordinance), to ride on any roadway unless...

    I've got a Trek Lane with Sora shifters on it. Is there an easy way to find out the model # for the shifters? I've looked all over them but don't see anything. Trek's website is pretty bland with a...

    Drop-bars, but ride on the hoods most of the time. Cyclo-cross converted for commuting. Not overly aggressive lean, but enough.

    I'd think it'd be neither of these options (though, certainly possible). I think it will be a slow, steady decline, with countries beginning to engage in conflict over energy sources. Oil won't dry...

    +1 this.

    I do the same. I wear glasses, so a balaclava really isn't too practical. I have a skull cap and neck gatier as well. Works pretty good.

    Of course, when it's -25 anyways... heck with...

    That's what I'm interested in; where is your balance of comfort vs. perceived risk? (Sounds like a great idea for a master's thesis! =) )
