    A Devinci performance hybrid (no model name, since I bought it from a bike touring company, so the touring company name is on the frame). That's my primary bike: it's fast enough to make riding fun,...

    Unfortunately, college campuses are hotbeds of bike theft. I had a beater stolen at a campus myself, though that was overnight and it was locked with a really cheap crap lock.

    What are you hoping to get out of the upgrade, other than smoother travel over bumps? Or are you just looking for a new toy? (Not that that's not a valid reason! :))

    We are a helpful bunch. But you realize we are not doing this for free, right? YOU OWE US PHOTOS. Once you buy the bike, you better show us what you've got! :D

    Right now it's temporarily in Charlottetown, PEI, but for the last few years it's been 10 km on the Martin Goodman between south Etobicoke to the foot of Bathurst. Sounds like a commuter's dream, but...

    15 miles a week is a very short commute. You can do it on pretty much any bike. I would recommend getting a bike that would be most suitable for mountain biking, or whatever other type of riding you...

    Before bed tends to work well. It subconsciously prepares your mind for the next day, and at the same time it may help you fall asleep better, since you know the morning will go smoothly, which is a...

    Welcome! Always nice to see another commuter join the ranks!

    You can do 1.5 miles on pretty much any bike. You can, in fact, do it reasonably quickly without a bike. So a few questions to help...

    Here's what I'd do if I had to speed things up in the morning:


    I'd only do the right side. There is no chain on the left; I've never had problems. But then I don't wear light or fancy dress...

    +1 for prepping and laying things out the night before.

    Also, I don't think you need to lube the chain every day. It's better to do it less often, but do a thorough job: put a dab on every chain...

    You probably mean Charlottetown. But yeah, it's still low traffic. Probably a bit higher than in 1983... but still low. :D

    Thanks! :) Great to see you've adopted and expanded it. No, I have not seen the bike pics thread; just coincidence.

    I guess I'll go to your new thread and add my current commute there with all the...

    Given that it's only a short distance on low-traffic roads, I wouldn't bother with the studs. If you don't go too fast, don't pedal too vigorously and avoid any braking and turning, biking on ice is...

    There is nothing wrong with vintage, but in my experience the word "vintage" on CL usually stands for "old junked out piece of crap that was a piece of crap even when it was new".

    I think internalized "misocycly" (hatred of cyclists) is a contributing factor.

    When a certain group is not a "default" one, generalizations about that group are often made based on behaviour of a...

    That's partly why it took me so long to learn the lesson. :D
