    I got the Shimano DH-3N80 from eBikeStop for $87. I can't tell a difference between when the light is off or on, but then I leave the lights on all the time :)

    Hi,

    There have been several comparisons I've seen of BA vs MS of different sizes, but not a direct comparison of the same size, which is part of why I felt the need for a lengthy review. I am liking the...

    I did not ride before my kids were born, I took it up when they were 2 and 4. My commute is 12 miles each way, and I think it's about perfect, one hour each way and no need for any other exercise...

    So I finally ordered then and rode the commute for the first time. About two months back, I ran over a large nail which lodged itself in the rear tire (big apple). It took some force to remove the...
