    A good looking chrome would look nice, but not so much if it's just silver in color. I'd go with white or black in that case. I think they should match, whatever color you go with.

    I actually like the Nashbar crochet gloves better than anything else I've tried. And they're about the cheapest pair of gloves you can find.

    I like the bar end myself. I just didn't find the helmet mirror very useful. You have to have your head in the right position to get the view you want. And I don't really like the look.

    The 'bike lane' described by the OP sounds like one I wouldn't use.

    To answer the original question, yes, I ride a road bike with platforms. I do wear shoes though. Can't keep my feet flat enough in softer soles. Ride whatever is comfortable - you're doing it for...

    I don't plan much, but ride in a rural area where I know all the roads so I really couldn't get lost if I tried.

    There was one in downtown Rochester, NY. As I recall, it was built in the early 60s and was considered a pioneering design. Underground parking with two levels of retail above surrounding an...

    I hadn't ridden in over 30 years and found the same thing. When I bought the vintage bike I now ride, it had been 'upgraded' to brifters, but I promptly took it back to downtube friction. It just...

    Never worn a black jersey, so I don't know about riding, but standing still or walking I find black much warmer on the golf course in the winter. When attired in two sweaters, I've alternated...

    I ride steel and find it quite comfortable. I did find when I started that flat bars seemed to give me a more jarring ride than road bars.

    I never provide a route. I often don't even plan a route until I'm riding. I usually ride some kind of a loop to the east, but there are enough variations that it would be hard to figure out where...

    A wicking tee would work just fine. Shorter rides I often wear a cotton tee. Longer rides I wear a jersey because I like the pockets. But I'd never spend $100 on one. You can get them on sale...

    I might have been embarrassed when I was young. But virtually no one wore bike gear in the 70s. I didn't take up riding again until a few years ago and once I started riding further I switched to...

    You need pictures for folks to have any idea. Likely not much given the brands, although I think Ross made a few good bikes over the years.

    Probably a bit overpriced, but a whole lot more bike than you could get new for that money.

    Interesting that the desire not to offend one's fellow human beings is seen as inherently liberal.

    That's very true on the rural roads around here. Cyclists hugging the right tend to disappear in the shadows of the trees, whereas they're much easier to spot from a distance in the center of the...

    They can really fly if you catch them just right. Had one the other day that cleared about 30 feet of grass and hit midway up a tall tree.

    I'm with those who say do both. That's what I do. On the couples rides, I'll often practice spinning in higher than normal cadence in a very low gear. And we ride on a lot of fairly empty roads,...

    If you like a bike and it fits you well, I don't think overpaying a little for a bike you plan to ride a lot is anything to worry about. Few have the time or patience to wait for the perfect deal,...

    I grew up riding 10 speeds, so that sort of threw me when I returned to riding after a 30+ year break.

    And I love the word "moist."
