    Just don't bring your folding bike on Acela, otherwise you're fine. (Acela has no room even for a foldie)

    In the Pacific NW, the Amtrak Cascades trains even have bike hooks for full size bikes!

    You can run a pair, but it makes more sense to go for a modern LED headlamp, like an IQ Fly or IQ Cyo. You'll get way more light output, and less hub drag than even 1 halogen lamp.

    Between the S7 and P5, for my uses I prefer the P5, at least for the hills we have in NYC (bridges). Then again, I prefer the old Sachs trigger shifters to the new grip shift from SRAM.

    Take out keys 10 sec. Unlock U lock, 10s. Stow U lock, 5s.
