    It is worth doing at least once, even for the $92. It was the fact that my kids had already done it that really stopped me from spending the money to do it again, although all 3 never did it...

    Maybe its the $92 fee? I've done it many times, but last year my college age kids wanted to join me and was going to cost close to $400 for everyone. I can think of better things to do with that...

    I would worry about a flat top not going in the right direction. You don't want to reverse polarity on an Li-ion battery. That button always gives a clue to direction.

    The DH-T785 looks to be like my T670 rear hub, made for the European market but not the US. It seems to only be available from European dealers based on a quick search. There is nothing wrong with...

    If you haven't already, find a completely unlit place to ride. Then you'll see how much light this really puts out.

    Oh, you are riding unlit country roads. That's a lot different than my NYC...

    Wow, that Panasonic page is truly overload. When you are designing car or airplane batteries in large arrays that info is important, but for a bike light all you really need is a single cell, and...

    10 miles of NYC riding each way, almost entirely on bike lanes. So do these count as streets or as MUPs?

    I've used undersized tubes on my commuter and they didn't last very long. But 25 vs. 23 shouldn't be a problem. I tried putting a 26x1.5 into a 26x2.1 tire and that wouldn't even inflate. It was...

    I wouldn't be so sure 11 speed will come down in price any time soon. It isn't new anymore but it is still expensive. I have Campy 10sp on my road bike and that is still expensive too, and when I...

    Let's see, I ride right on someones tail on the Manhattan Bridge because if I pass them they would feel obligated to try to pass me again. Bright lights, also on someones tail, also on the bridge. ...

    The light you chose looks to be a good one. It has a Panasonic 18650 3300mah battery, which is good, 700 lumens (but don't expect it to really be 700). Finned for cooling. I'd say go for it. By...

    I'll have to look again for comments related to these lights getting water in them. I haven't had a problem yet myself, but as I said, the one time I rode in a heavy rain I put a plastic bag over...

    The Edelux II is a dynamo powered light, no batteries required. I have the similarly shaped beam from the B&M Cyo premium and it does throw a lot of light. I believe the Edelux and Cyo use the same...

    Yeah, I don't like their music much either, never a fan. But I still wish the guy luck.
  16. Using silicone sealant on a B&M Cyo light?

    I've read here that the B&M Cyo Premium lights aren't entirely waterproof (and other models maybe as well) and was wondering if there would be any harm in using some silicone to seal all of the...

    The short answer is don't bother. The long answer is it just isn't worth it to replace one obsolete system with another. And unless the bike is really nice, it won't be worth it to upgrade to a...

    You're comparing one set of chainrings to another without saying what cogs you have in the rear. Without that information we can't even say that your gearing is different or the same between the...

    Save your money. Don't do it. You won't find it that much different than what you have. Since you don't understand gearing (based on you questions) what do you think you'll be getting? When the...

    A bottle dynamo will produce a lot of drag while charging, and won't do a great job. A dynamo hub will be more efficient, but still not sure it would be effective in charging something although I've...

    Great. They were also starting a project to rebuild the bridge between Knapp and Flatbush, so maybe this is all part of that project.

    I'll have to check Plum (or is it plumb?) beach out. This is my regular beach route, and I also usually do the loop around Cross Bay once or twice each year. And if it is open, the NYC Century will...
