    I have never quite understood the need for a lot of volume for randonneuring. I rode this year with a single pannier for a couple of reasons which mostly involve not wanting to spend time on a...

    Cygolite sells a rack mount for the hotshot that fits the mounting holes on your rack. Costs about $4

    as far as the front goes, you can probably rig up something involving a bar extender or a...

    if you can fit that star into a fenderbot, the led that znomit recommended will be fine. That is plenty of heatsinking at the currents you will be feeding it

    On a totally different tack, I would...

    there are a few stem mounts, but most people I know use a handlebar extender/extension as people have mentioned above

    I have always run mine up to the stem, and I don't see any problem with that with aero brake levers. The trend is to bigger bars anyway, doesn't hurt anything to have more area for your hand to rest...

    well, if the Louisiana statute reads that same way, it could go either way depending on the enforcement. I drive no-hands all the time, never figured that was legal

    I just looked at the Cygolite site under specs for each light. I didn't find anything about the 680 at all. Both 720 and 850 say they have XM-L2. I used to follow emitters a little more carefully,...

    I didn't road test the lights, but to me in the store the 850 was a lot brighter and the fresnel lens did a good job of spreading the light so it's in a more useful spot. I thought the 720 had that...

    can't tell from here. could easily be structural. One way to tell is the "nickel test" where you tap on the area with a coin and see if it sounds like a known good area.

    well, since we've gotten back to the legality of this, it's probably illegal. It appears that Louisiana law requires one hand on the bars.

    I'm not sure that the supernova headlight is really guaranteed to put out less than 6v, but assuming it is and a 2v Vf on the LEDs, the website is calling for no more than 1/2 watt across the tail...

    I thought about trying to get some Halo powder, but at the time they were obnoxious about it. Don't know if they have changed, but I lost access to the guy that powder coated, so it's not an issue. ...

    ppg has a single coat color if you want to skip the clear -- that is much like the original Imron. Clear is the real hazard. Lots of people use PPG and HOK and others, Imron has the marketing

    there was a thread here recently where we talked about a taillight for supernova. They rectify the voltage which includes the standlight. So they probably don't want to be responsible for helping...

    I assume what you heard about them is amplified by the squeaky wheel phenomenon. Take it off the bike, see if the axle spins freely and isn't loose. If not, adjust. Either way, put it back on the...

    It really depends on your goals. I know some people just train to finish brevets. That's fine, you don't have to do much training then. If you want to train scientifically, there are plenty of...

    in any event, the fact that it's lower or higher outdoors doesn't really matter. What does matter is that you always measure it the same way.
