    For me, clipless pedals are safer than platform pedals with toe clips. I briefly used toe-clips when I first got into biking and it wasn't long before I went clipless. With clipless, you can...

    The more time you spend on your bike, the more I think it pays to get a good fitting at your local bike shop. It really helps to have someone take measurements while you ride a trainer. I think this...

    My bike is mostly made up of carbon fiber and aluminum - never head anything rust, despite having to leave it outside daily for over a year (while at work). Before this bike, the commuter was...

    The first :10-:15 minutes in the morning= warm up on a MUP. After that, I think I am around 12-18 mph, though that is an estimate since I don't use a cycle computer or Strava. I am ten minutes...

    I really like the idea of doing a better chain lube once a week, maybe on the weekend, and making sure I get each link - that will help.

    Thanks for the good ideas! One of my lights charges by USB and takes 5-6 hours (niterider), so sometimes I go to bed before it is fully charged. I could charge at work, but I am usually very busy...
