    Is the Bagman rack compatible with bags made by other companies, or does it just work with Carradice bags?

    Edit: Google knows! It looks like it would work at least with Dill Pickle Bags:...

    I think there is something to this. My spouse loves to bike for recreational purposes on weekends, but he hates hills and can't stand the idea of arriving at work all sweaty. I'm seriously toying...

    I have a bike very similar to the Velorbis. It's made by a Belgian company, Achielle. At 18 kgs, it's a little bit lighter than some of the Dutch-style bikes like Pashley and Gazelle. I've been on it...

    Civia offers a nice bike in a similar price range: Civia Cycles Twin City Step Through 5 Speed.

    it also comes in a seven speed with an integrated front rack.

    Good for you! It definitely gets easier, especially once you sort out a system for dressing for different kinds of weather. My commute is about 12 miles round trip, and it took a few weeks before I...

    I'm off the bike today too. I wish it were for a blizzard. Instead, I got hit by the flu. :(

    This part of your post makes me think that if you get a cargo bike, the box bike model isn't the way to go. You don't want to ride something that big back and forth to work 12 miles round trip every...

    Congratulations! Looks like a good bike. About the mirror: I've been using a Mirrycle. It's very effective, doesn't vibrate, and was pretty cheap ($15 on Amazon).

    So sorry to hear about joeyduck. I'll hold a good thought for him and his family.

    I think he means that he's using the GPS as a bike computer to keep track of distance, speed, and so forth. It isn't navigating -- I.e., giving directions to work.

    I also keep keep track of miles...

    This is almost exactly my situation except that I live in the South -- no snow -- so my tires are Schwalbe Marathon Plus.

    What takes me so long is getting the bike out to the street. Because I...

    Except that you are risking a week-long ban with that non-drive side photo! :)

    I really like this suggestion and think a new thread is in order. I like the way acidfast7 laid out the post. I also like the existing thread, but see this one as serving a different function. I wish...

    1000 mile check up

    I'm taking my bike into the co-op on Sunday to install a new front rack and basket. While I'm there I thought I'd give it a good going over. I've just crossed the 1000-mile mark on this bike. Any...

    Surly has just announced that in 2015 they are coming out with a Straggler in 650b (that's the tire size). At 5'1" it might be hard to find a bike that fits well, but the smaller Stragglers should...

    I don't choose my gear for the purpose of making an impression, but I also don't fool myself that it doesn't. For people who don't know bikes, the beautiful red city bike with the clearly...

    Right now I use all streets, but in a few months I might have a partly-MUP option. The city is building a cyclepath connector between a big city park near where I work and a MUP not too far from my...

    I'm really glad that you were there @jaxgtr. I can imagine that in the same situation -- as a driver -- I would have been really shaken up. As a woman confronted by an unstable man, the fear would be...

    This is is almost exactly what I would say about Memphis. Midtown is especially good. We also have a Mayor who is very committed to developing bike infrastructure. I've seen huge improvements in the...

    I had been kind of half looking forward to a little bit of wet/cold weather so I could give the pants a good test. Well, you can put this in the "be careful what you wish for" file. My ride home was...

    @PatrickGSR94 - I tried out the pants for the first time today. It was only 36, and there was no rain and not much wind, so not exactly the conditions I bought them for, but I did like them a lot....

    At the beginning of 2014, I had only one goal. I wanted to make at least 100 bike commutes. I only go into the office during the academic year and work from home one day a week even then, so this...

    They are power shield (not polar). Sorry about that. The semester was ending just about the time they arrived, so I haven't needed to commute on a cool/cold or wet day yet. I'm weirdly eager for just...

    I'm commenting here so that I can follow this thread. I'm curious about the same thing. I have a set of Ergon grips in the parts box that I've been meaning to install on my spouse's bike for a while.
