    You're right! I had completely forgot about mirrors. I guess I take them for granted. I bet I haven't ridden a bicycle without a bar mounted mirror for over seven years. I bet i check them once...

    I've been commuting for about 8 years. It's been fun... but never more fun than it is now - I've done an ebike conversion to my commuter bike. I thought it would be cheating... it is... but guess...
  3. what are your best accessory/component purchases that you use on every commute?

    Is there a great purchase you made that you have been using 5+ years on every commute? These might be the actual accessories or components that have stood the test of time and need to be considered...

    Yep did a lot of pedaling with one leg on the Seattle to Portland ride. When one leg was cramping, there was no option. I'm thinking i did a good 20+ miles (total) of one legged pedaling during the...

    I think each of the shops gave you fair advice and opinions. Maybe you went in with the wrong attitude. I haven't found the bicycle buying experience to be anything like buying a car. I've never...

    Go ahead and give it a try on your road bike. I prefer to commute on my road bike when the weather is nice here (which is rare except for July, August.) The surprising thing is how much stuff you...

    Go see Wakefield Gregg at the ebikestore in Portland. Its about 3 blocks east of I-5 on Rosa Parks. He has all types of electric bikes, front hub, rear hub, mid-drives. If it was me and I had...

    You made a great choice! The Diverge would be in my top 3 if I were buying a bike today.

    I'd say it looks like an excellent choice. Looks like it has mechanically actuated hydraulic disk brakes - won't have a problem stopping (an upgrade would be going to a totally hydraulic system, but...
  11. Bionx - what kind of range are you getting?

    I've had my Bionx system for about 3 weeks now. I love it! I've used it for a few longer rides, but mostly for commuting. I don't believe that I have really pushed this system yet. My longest...

    I understand that you have a job to do. However, I think you are putting your job above the law and the safety of others. So, when a cyclist smashes into the back of your truck that is illegally...

    One practical reason might be that not every bike frame will accommodate 28mm tires. If you put 28's on these bikes... you better enjoy walking.

    The main factor for me would be the road surface conditions. Fortunately, my commute has excellent surface conditions. 90 percent of my commute is on a well maintained MUP. The "road" parts of the...

    I recently went through a similar situation. (Maybe you have read some of my posts in previous threads.) For ease of installation, probably a front hub motor is your best choice. I think you're...

    I have a carbon fiber synapse. I don't know how differently that rides in comparison to an alloy frame... but, I've been extremely happy with my synapse. The trek domane looks like an excellent...

    Great bike! It's gotta be a joy to ride it. I hope it gets more time on the road than just commuting.

    I think I'm done optimizing this one. Latest addition - 350 Watt Bionx electric conversion... this is now my ultimate commuter.

    Thanks ezbikin. I'll be ecstatic if I have an experience similar to yours. I don't have the throttle hooked up to my system. I'm loving the pedal assist feature. I find myself in level 0 or 1...

    Wow! This has been quite an adventure for you. I wish it were working the way you wanted. I opted to go with a 350W direct drive hub from bionx. I'm loving it! What I love most is that the motor...

    Yep, this makes hills disappear. Just for the heck of it, I found one of the steeper hills in the area to climb... something I probably wouldn't try on a regular bike. It's 1/4 of mile and rises...

    I think part of the problem with installing a throttle on my bars is that they are not standard drop bars. They are "ergonomic" bars that are made of some wider tubing and they are flatter than they...
