    I just put some BMX pedals with the pins on last night. Only have one ride on them, so too early to tell. I'm also looking for a nice platform pedal so I can wear regular shoes. Plus I can't find...

    My light is mounted on my fork (or on the boom of my recumbent), so it's about the same height as the headlight on my wife's van that I'm using for reference.

    I put a SMV triangle on my child trailer when I towed it (I don't know if it helped, but people associate it with the Amish buggies in surrounding areas so I figure it couldn't hurt). People gave me...

    This family stayed with me last summer and they're still going. It worked well for them. The 11 and 9 year old did much more than you would think. But they tended to have 30 - 40 mile days. A 50...

    That's interesting. I'd seen some people using skinnier tires but the conventional wisdom was always mountain bike tires, and those are what's cheap to buy and not worry about riding in the winter. I...

    I returned that one. It would not sit on my nose right and my glasses fogged immediately. My ski goggle *kind of* held it down. If I didn't have glasses it might have been OK. Prescription...

    After comparing my fat bike to my mountain bike with studded tires, I'm riding my fat bike more often than my mountain bike. I've never gone with skinnier tires than 2", so I can't comment on that.
