    Agree with not trusting cable locks at all. ABUS Bordo Light is perhaps a step up and very convenient. The (non-light) Bordo is apparently quite good, but heavier. Part of this is also a question...

    Ugh. It looks like you're right about the Austins. That's a shame. I love mine.

    Congrats! Someone with more knowledge than I may have to help you with the details, but the I'm guessing that the reason for the extra fork is that the forks in the 93s were recalled. (Given this I...

    I'm a big fan of Sugoi, but given where you live, the Hotshot ( I think it's now the Hotshot3)is probably more than you need. I do also like my Woolistic (merino) Visconti jersey, which might be...

    What do we mean by "On your left!"

    I'm afraid I may be pulling the pin and dropping a grenade with this, but here it goes:
    I always thought that "On your left!" meant "I'm passing on your left so don't move to your left!". Over the...

    Be Part of My Fantasy

    OK, now that I either have your attention or have you running the other way, here's the actual fantasy (and how I want you to be a part of it):
    In reaction to some life changes, I think I'd enjoy...

    Grrrrr. I wonder if one does a rain dance, but goes counterclockwise, does that help?

    Sounds like fun if the weather holds. Can I qualify with early 90s lugged steel, even if it's got indexed shifting (and if I have to mix spandex with wool)?

    After upwards of a year's use in the midst of Boston drivers I've got to say that the Hornit is not as consistently effective as I'd like. You do need to "lay on it" and if you've got time to do...

    I guess the weather was too nice here & the bike rack at work was overflowing. Some twit managed to wedge his/her bike in next to mine so that the bikes were all tangled up (pedals in spokes,...

    MAMIL and proud of it. Until the weather gets cool commuting in work clothes just isn't feasible.

    I had 2 flats in the first 3 months on the non- TG Paselas, after riding the same commuting route for almost 2 years without incident on other tires. In fairness, I've now gone 7 months (probably...

    Makes no difference at all. Anyone who's been paying any attention at all for the last 15+ years knows that Rove = Snake.

    I actually do like the Keen Austins, and haven't yet had the issues described by Mr. Hairy Legs.

    At least as of the 2012 model year (when I was looking for a road/commuting bike to replace my stolen commuter), I don't think the Secteur had eyelets for racks or fenders. There are ways around...

    Maybe it was just bad luck but I had 2 flats (punctures) in the first 3-400 miles on the Paselas, ridden on Boston streets. I've been ok since (maybe another 3-400 miles) but my next tires won't be...

    Can't comment on the Wellgos, but I like my A530s a lot & haven't had a problem with slipping on the platforms.

    Do they break out that hand-cranked organ at breakfast, or is it just for dinner?

    The Loudbicycle horn looks intriguing, and I definitely think that a bike horn that sounds like a car horn will be more effective. I have to say that a device costing almost $100 seems like an...

    Hornit 140 dB Horn Experience/Review

    The news is full of promising new drugs under development that work great in the lab but don't work as well in vivo.
