    I think there might be something about heat involved in this as well, but you're right - it...

    Have you tried the various other earbuds that come with it? They also come with wingtip things I've seen other people using.

    Fyi, don't know if you've seen this before, but while the 35mm Schwalbe Marathon Winter used to be the skinniest decent studded tire (there was the Nokian A10 to but reports weren't great on it),...

    Well, they're by me. Might be easier to wait and buy from Specialized as Specialized probably has a better return policy. Or you could call them...

    Sure thing, I've found the Ixon Iq Premium to be sufficient light for me, but some people have found it to dim for certain situations (wet blacktop, bright headlights from oncoming traffic, etc).

    I used a pair of Dinotte 400L's on my bike before, so 800 lumens total. I think the Ixon Iq Premium is much better. Some people think it's fine for light output, some people think it's great and all...

    If you have a spot for it, leaving clothing at work is really the way to go. I wouldn't want to walk through work in spandex, but I just wear mountain biking shorts and they work great. A pannier...

    As the first few posters said, what's secure really depends on where you're locking your bike up.

    The first battery powered one with no solar charging is fine.

    While not all do, the vast majority of them do. That you can buy a few that don't doesn't change that.
