    Depends on the weather and your needs. In my hometown in South Florida, there seems to be a wet part of the year where I'm soaked no matter what and just keep a towel and change of clothes in my bag,...

    As a fellow broke college student, I've gotta say that Nashbar is a sweet Craigslist find. How much did you pay for it? Were the fenders included?

    I'm the seller. I'm thinking $275 might be a bit high, but I'm not sure (hence why I mentioned that I'll consider...

    Very nice! What kind of bar tape is that? I've seen it around quite a bit lately and it looks nice and comfortable.

    I've visited Tally and there's a nice cycling community there, as the town is so centralized and there are so many young people. I don't recall seeing any bike lanes on major arterial streets,...

    I had the same concerns and found Pelican cases, which are totally crushproof and waterproof. My case (Pelican 1085 for my 13" MacBook") is large and bulky but very worthwhile. I think you can find...
  11. Pedals With Toe Clips: Who Uses Them? How Tight?

    I commute ~30 miles round trip and use pedals with toe clips. I like riding with the clips tight, to the point where I need to reach down and loosen the clip to get my foot out. That's obviously...

    I store my laptop in a Pelican hard case, put it in a backpack and bungee it to my rear rack (though you could also fit the case in a large pannier). The case is a bit bulky but completely crushproof...

    My parents bought this Mongoose Hilltopper new around '94; it was my commuter in high school and I must've put 10,000 miles on it.

    Do the repairs or get a new bike?

    So for the past 4 years I've commuted 70-110 miles a week on an inherited '94 Mongoose Hilltopper mountain bike, and it's taken a lot of abuse.

    The bottom bracket has been loose for months, and...
