    Once I started commuting I realized I like my commuting stuff way better than my weekend roadie stuff. On my weekend bike, I ditched my speed plays in favor of spds and shoes I can walk in.

    I bet you're going to love that Wabi. I got a Classic and after a few months I couldn't wait for the Lightning RE to come out. I enjoy them both very much. Richard builds a very smart bike.

    68.1 on the FG/SS. That gives me 19.2 MPH at a cadence of 95. That's how I roll.


    Ok, that's not really how I roll, that's how I want to roll.

    I got introduced to rollers last winter and they really helped me. For me rollers are a skill drill not a fitness or endurance building exercise. If your fit on the bike has your weight well balanced...

    My favorite saddle is from Wabi at $35.00. I'll hit 5K miles this year including multiple centuries. Won't help OP as his requirement is for a width wider than Wabi makes. I've found zero correlation...

    Li-ion Battery care

    The manufacturer of my light doesn't go into details on charging. Reading on the web it appears these batteries have no memory and therefore it's better to have multiple short charges rather than one...

    Do you take at least one day off per week? I'm 57 and doing the same thing you are. If I try to ride 7 days/week I burn out in about 3 weeks and have to take several days off.

    Sounds good to me. I live 1 block from the alligator farm filmed by Swamp People.

    I'm also surprised at my low heart rate. Cardio was fine, legs okay, just ran out of energy and wanted to quit.
