    Yep. Thursday night I almost got blown over several times when the wind gusts would sneak up on me. Path and bike lanes were already getting littered with branches and the like. Today it was all...

    3000 lumens is probably overkill. Half that should be sufficient, but many are less than advertised. I got one of these and it works great. Look for a US seller and you'll get it a lot faster.

    On cold days like today I wear leg warmers with a good pair of athletic shorts over the top. Keeps me warm at freezing or even colder. I tried them for the first time this year and much prefer just...

    I'm in the same boat as others here who don't bother cleaning the bike until spring. It's mostly just wet here. I lube the chain every so often but nothing else until it dries up and warms up.

    It was cold and wet. Bordering on freezing but still raining. Usually when it's raining here it's not quite that cold. It'll be interesting to see tomorrow if all this precipitation freezes up and...
  10. What does the ultimate winter commuter bike look like?

    In my college days, I made due with whatever bike I had. Since I became serious about longer distance, year-round commuting, I've been on the search for the perfect/ideal winter commuter. I know...

    I have a bike for summer and one for the rest of the year. Wet, rainy conditions are to be expected here for a good portion of the year. Winter bike is titanium frame, fenders, lights, disc brakes....

    I prefer winter commuting in some ways because there are way fewer people on the MUP to get in my way. Plus I get warm enough riding, so the cooler weather is nice.

    I have the Axiom DLX Streamlined. Works great with my disc brake bike and was easy to mount. I did a fair amount of searching before I found it seemed like the best option.

    Craigslist Police?

    Glad to hear the panniers are working. They were certainly a revelation for me many years ago when I got my first pair. Since then any bike I get, that's the first accessory I throw on.

    Not at all true in my case. Knee pain issues began because I have difficulty keeping my legs lined up so they track correctly. Getting clipless pedals to hold my feet exactly in place the entire...

    I agree with others who said the dual platform/spd pedals are kind of a pain to find the right side. I prefer the spd's that clip on both sides. Personally I wouldn't bother with clipless. I had a...

    Are my knees addicted to cycling?

    So let me explain:

    Lots of problems in the last couple of years with my knees (mostly seemed to get worse the more I rode the bike). Finally saw a physical therapist who helped me learn some...
