    I use the one w/o the spring on my road/commuter bike. I got a regular Explorer rack for my utility bike (not the Super Tourist version), but I was only able to get it with the spring, which I don't...

    heh I started commuting 31 miles on my road bike, then tried it once on my 26" utility bike with 26x1.5 Serfas Drifters, and it SUCKED!! Small wheels, small gearing, platform pedals, yuck.

    I like Topeak racks with their MTX QuickTrack quick-release interface for trunk bags and baskets. Check out their Super Tourist line of racks which have a bar that extends farther back just for the...

    The little dogs that try to chase me, I'm worried more about their safety than mine, because they usually run out into the road and a car could be passing me right at that moment.

    I will say that Bontrager H2 26x1.5 tires are CAKE to mount up. However I can't comment on how they feel or durability. I put Serfas Drifter 26x1.5 tires on my 90's MTB/utility bike, and those are...

    Nice, that actually looks like more of a matte chrome, almost aluminum look. What kind are those?

    Good job. If you had been riding at the far edge, with no mirror, you may very well have been hit by the inattentive motorist.

    I know a guy locally who recently got a bakfiets box bike like that. There's some interesting geometry going on that allows the main part of the bike (behind the box unit) to lean in the direction...

    I've heard of and seen people on YT commuting on 'bent trikes (2 front wheels) and velomobiles and the like. Not many, though. That would be a pretty high initial cost to get started commuting on...

    So if I'm riding along, and a car starts to come over in my lane with an oblivious motorist at the wheel, sure I can brake hard and let the car go on by. But the motorist will remain oblivious and...

    Had my bike packed and ready to go, woke up at 5, but was just too tired to get up. Plus the 28 deg. outside just made me want to stay in the bed. So I went back to sleep until 6 and then drove to...

    Well I would have to scuff them up anyway to help the paint stick. And like was said earlier I think the paint would still chip really easily off of plastic.

    Yeah this exactly. I hate riding without a destination. Even if the destination is just to some restaurant for lunch. On the rare occasion I can get my wife to go on a ride with me, I'd much...

    Okay I heard from the guy at the LBS why the Electra fenders wouldn't fit. The stays are not adjustable and are made specifically to fit the Electra, so they would not fit the Trek Pure.

    I'll...

    Those look like gloss black plastic fenders, pretty much the same material as my SKS Raceblades most likely.

    Those Townie ones look perfect. Yes the Pure is a 26" wheel, and in fact the design of the bike is very much similar to that of the Electra Townie.

    Wonder if those would fit the Pure without much...

    ew yuck, my hands always get soaking wet from sweat inside gloves like those, at least in nitrile gloves they do.

    Last winter when it was in the 20's F I would usually do my regular summer gloves...
  18. Has anyone seen flat/matte black fenders?

    Figured I'd ask here since we commuters are usually more concerned with having fenders. Has anyone seen any fenders in matte or flat black? My dad just recently got a Trek Pure cruiser-style bike,...

    Several weeks ago I upped my commuting from 2 to 3 days a week, which gives me nearly 100 miles just commuting during the week. I still try to get in some weekend stuff, whether it be to the store,...

    oooo I wonder if X-Large would fit my US 13 feet. Because I've been needing something badly for cold toes.

    *edit* crap! XL is sold out! :(

    Weird weather this morning, it was 55 when I woke up at 5 AM and then 49 when I left the house at 6:20. West winds 15 MPH gusting to 25 made for some hard segments where I was heading west. Luckily...

    A car looks like it's about to hit you. A quick horn blasts makes the car suddenly change trajectory. You're saying the horn didn't affect that outcome?

    The place I tried a couple times had guys in there who acted like they didn't care. Plus the shop was one massive mess. I was looking for 26x1.5 street tires once, and a guy went over to the corner...

    Unfortunately I don't think it will look like a solid circle to the human eye. It will look like a single point of light going round and round as you roll by.

    The very first time I commuted home from work, I wore my regular sunglasses, Oakley A-wires, which have small-ish lenses. I had to stop 5 or 6 times on the commute to wipe my eyes because so much...
