    I just put a used magicshine mj816 and mj 818 tail light w/batt/charger/etc on ebay for $100 starting. I think that's the best you can do for the $100 mark.

    PM for links.

    I've had the bike and been riding 65+ miles a week on it, plus riding another 20 miles on my grocery getter (cruiser).

  5. How do I switch from an integrated shifter/brake system to an index shifter?

    I have a Dawes Lightning Cross set up for commuting but I'm getting some, errr, "man" problems from sitting in a forward lean for a long time. I want to change to a more upright, relaxed posture like...

    Awesome! I'm a new commuter, too. Just keep it fun and comfortable and the time will go down pretty significantly.

    I just recently started commuting. I began thinking about it for both fitness and financial reasons. My commute is 16.2 miles each way and when I build up to doing the full commute at least three...

    So I've set up my commuter and comparing it to my aluminum framed beach cruiser, its not that much faster. Now please note, I'm not talking about all out sprints, as the cruiser just doesn't have the...

    So, guys, having been LEO let me give you the skinny.

    For me it's soda, but I've been doing good without it for a while. That and sweet tea, and by sweet tea I mean a glass of sugar with some tea in it.

    That was very well written, and I definitely see your point. I also feel sorry for you if you're cycling on the streets of Murfreesboro.

    Did my first 20+ miler!
