    I think it reflects a different mindset with regard to bicycles: One of transportation rather than recreation.

    Here in the USA, the majority of people who own bicycles use them exclusively for...

    I have VO fenders and I like them a lot. Mounting them was a bit of a challenge, but I maxed out on tire size (actually exceeded the recommended size by 2mm), so I didn't have much room for error.

    I did this with my panniers. I've been using a combination of Jandd Mini Mountain panniers and Jandd Economy panniers, and I liked them except for the mounting systems. I will say that the mounting...

    That's an unfair criticism of the post you quoted. Saddlesores did write a factual post. It is a fact that he does not like those features and would change them if he had that bike, and what's wrong...

    I think the manufacturers often offer black as a subdued alternative to their flashier color-of-the-year. For example, Surly usually offers their frames in a custom color that may not be to many...

    A stripped-down, lightweight bike can be a better option for some commutes. I'm thinking of people who commute with a combination of bike and transit. Most subway stations won't allow bikes on the...

    There are some shops in SF that sell used bikes. Columbus Cyclery and Pedal Revolution come to mind. There are others. You might be able to pick up a used mountain bike in your price range from one...

    Just one bit of info to share. I am from the SF area, and pretty familiar with the craigslist offerings. There are a lot of bikes for sale in this area, but the asking prices are steep, and often...

    It works well, and is easy to use. See a demo in the second video I posted above. I have only used it once, but I was able to get a tough-to-mount tire on rather easily with it after all other...

    I could do without the scolding and lectures I get for not wearing a helmet. Anyone who does that, please stop. Other than that, it's rare for another cyclist to annoy me on the road.

    Early Xmas

    Long awaited wheel upgrade for my Cross Check came today (replacing a 7-year-old stock wheelset). I'm even excited about my new chain and lube. How big of a geek can I be?
