    Good point, I live car-free and the nearest bike shop is over 80 miles away with no public transportation connection. So, I SHOULD be able to order one there; but there is no way I would. I will...

    Disagreement, we don't need more "secret police." We need consistent police. I am not going to dive too far into behavioral theory here, the science is there. Studies have shown that if a person...

    My sister was a co owner in a Taxi company for several years. As such I heard about he regular clients. All put together, about ten years ago, a DUI would cost the offender about 5k-7k USD. Note that...

    At 15 miles, each way, per day I am going to recommend a recumbent. The reason for the recommendation is comfort. Further, you mentioned the safety aspect, a recumbent give you the "heads up"...

    This is where I come from with studs also. It just isn't worth the risk. I don't do a lot of the stunt riding I used to do either. I have crashed on ice in the past and plan to avoid doing so in the...

    I am 5'6" and, unless you have a extreme body geometry, an 18" is too big. I have a 17" cross country bike; but it is really suited for a single purpose (non-technical long distance single track). A...

    I am not trying to sound overly sexist; but many of the suggestions here seem to be assuming that this woman is going to be focused on competitive riding and "leading the pack." I just am not seeing...

    Another user of the PDW Danger Zone here. I have it mounted to the rack and it works well.

    I am also not sold on USB recharging. I can keep a set of spare rechargeable batteries in my pannier and...

    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.

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