    There are running/hiking skirts with pockets deep enough to stick some stuff in while walking around (won't keep it there while riding.

    Yup, I can chime in. I live slightly further north of Tufts (north of 16), and used to live in Union Square. That Google Maps suggestion is mostly OK, but the intersection of Somerville Ave and...

    FYI, interrupter levers can be added to any* road bike, so don't base your decision on that alone.

    I can't brake hard from the hoods -- the angle is just one I can't seem to build hand strength....

    They don't have women's arm/leg warmers -- they're "unisex". I tried the knee warmers in the appropriate diameter at one point -- they were literally so long that the elastic bit wanted to be several...

    Only issue with arm coolers is that I haven't found anyone making them in Athena sizes -- women often (not always, but often) carry a fair amount of fat on the upper arms; I tried the biggest ones I...

    Terry's XXL in straight sizes or 1X in their plus-sizes should be about right (I'm an 18 as well, and have some of each), and they make very light sleeveless tops.

    However, one downside to...

    Congratulations! (I hope my first 200k of the season goes that well; it's been a long winter in the NE and I don't really have my legs under me yet, but am young enough to fake it 'til I make it.) ...

    Is it possible there's a rim issue involved? That's never where tires go for me. If there was something slightly weird about your rims that's gotten worse, maybe the tires are still the same as...

    There's quite a few car-free or car-light folks in the Boston randonneuring contingent; the start point for the Boston rides is a fairly-flat 10-15 mile cruise out to the suburbs for city dwellers. ...

    Are there any bike shops in your area that sell refurbished old bikes? You can get a lot for your money that way, and still get something that's been gone over very closely by a good shop.

    You can certainly do that. Getting out of the city is step 1, though, and where you end up staying is a factor. If Cambridge is an option, go for it -- there's a MUP (and a fairly...

    Brompton folding bike. :) It's my main city ride. They started making Schwalbe Marathon Winters for that size (ERTRO 349mm) fairly recently; I put a pair on the bike this winter. Until recently,...

    I really like my Petzl e+ -- it has a switch I can turn on and off at will, so I leave it off most of the time. (Especially now that I have a GPS.) And I can use it on low-red to preserve my night...

    I use the smaller version of that REI container. Two of them -- one for sunscreen, one for chamois cream. It's several applications of sunscreen and one application of chamois cream. Both go into...

    For a slightly shorter tour, I did Berkshires to Boston in 2013 (the inaugural run) and it was a lot of fun. Three real days of riding to cross the state, plus they've added some short ride options...

    A23 rim. Which is also known to be on the larger side, so a tire on the tight side + a rim on the larger side = really tough mount/dismount. But they ride beautifully.

    Again -- krobinson103 was talking about a fleche, which means 24 hours to go 360km, thus it's 15kph (9.3mph). Even more eminently doable.

    I really liked the ride and flat resistance of the GP4000s, although I took them off after a flat experience where I broke two tire levers and pinched a tube trying to get the tire on/off. (The...

    I've owned a few; the fit is never quite right, although men's jerseys tend not to have the too-short-torso problem that women's often do on me. (I can fit in women's 3XL from several manufacturers,...
