  1. You actually bring up one of the reasons why I...

    You actually bring up one of the reasons why I posted this thread questioning whether a fast road bike would really be better. I deal with stop-start a lot due to traffic siganls but multi-use areas...
  2. That you honestly think I'm trying to humble brag...

    That you honestly think I'm trying to humble brag (again, what is the point of doing that to people I don't even know), and that you're cynical about my apparent naivete, is skewing your response I...
  3. It makes me sad that I just come off like a...

    It makes me sad that I just come off like a bragging idiot when I'm asking what, for me, is an honest question.

    I've been making this observation (I pass guys on road bikes more than they pass me)...
  4. Why would I brag (humble or not) to a bunch of...

    Why would I brag (humble or not) to a bunch of strangers? The reason I posted this is because I am frighteningly inexperienced with road bikes, yet I think I want one because I really enjoyed the...

    15 miles round trip, and fairly hilly. I consider commuting a race against myself. I want to be at work or home sooner than later, because I have things to do or I just want to be with my wife a...
  6. Good idea. I'm talking to the doctor tomorrow so...

    Good idea. I'm talking to the doctor tomorrow so I'll see what he can think of like this. Thanks!
  7. Want a road(ish) bike, but what's holding me back...

    ...is the fact that I keep outpacing road/cross/touring bike users on my commute.

    Commuting mostly on a 3-speed Windsor Oxford and occasionally a Public e-bike, the other day I tried a Surly...

    Yeah, my urine is normal so it's not an infection.

    I am thinking it may be something caused by a phenomenon outside of biking but exacerbated by the stress of biking. Sometimes when I ride I don't...
  9. I wonder if I can revive this thread and get some...

    I wonder if I can revive this thread and get some more input. First, the diagnosis as it were is idiopathic stress-induced urinary tract pain with no good explanation. Urinalysis is totally normal....

    Some thought-provoking replies. I've wondered about the pollution problem. I ride with lots of traffic. I have to agree that the picture for our lungs is probably mixed at best (and I also resent...

    Hey all. I just had time to read the many replies. Thank you all.

    To those suggesting stress is the cause, I have to admit it is likely contributing. I work ~60 hours a week right now and I can...
  12. Negative health effects of a daily bike commute?

    Over the last year I have had a spate of health problems I never, ever used to experience when I had an easier and flatter commute; nor prior to that when I had no bike commute at all. I am wondering...
  13. That's actually a really good point. I do...

    That's actually a really good point. I do remember keeping my feet a little further forward to avoid heel striking.
  14. I don't think I was pedaling differently, but I...

    I don't think I was pedaling differently, but I felt like I was "dragging" the whole time compared normal, again with about the exact same weight load. I also felt some "wobble" or oscillation around...

    Sure, in theory. Not if it makes my leg cramp up though. There was no contact between me and the bags.



    Way to help out. You have no idea why I might need to carry my laptop and that's not the...
  16. Rear pannier bags and leg cramps? Messenger bag would be better?

    I just tried a rear pannier bag for the first time in a while and it gave me awful leg cramps hauling the same amount of weight +/- a couple pounds as I normally do with a backpack. I don't have a...

    I have a Public D electric and I find the pedal assist completely perfect, while the throttle is basically pointless IMO. Throttle is not intuitive to me as a cyclist and seems to burn a lot more...
  18. It does seem like it was the chain. I set my...

    It does seem like it was the chain. I set my wife's bike up as well and it was the same thing. I loosened both up a good bit and they both freewheel a lot easier, although there is still more...
  19. I did notice the chain was a bit more taut than...

    I did notice the chain was a bit more taut than I'm used to, however I could still depress the chain slightly with my finger. I did not look into it extremely closely. I was not aware of this issue....
  20. Freewheel resistance - Shimano Nexus IGH

    I just picked up matching Windsor Kensingtons in red for me and my wife. She's really happy. They're not our first Windsor IGH bikes -- we already have a couple of three speeds, but in our new digs...

    Thanks guys. In fact I hope the ride is not totally free! I just want to get back to how it was before... mild exertion but largely sweat-free.

    Well, I ended up just buying the pre-fab Public Bionx bike that is based on their D8i frame with a 7-speed derailleur system. It was (seemingly) on sale at $1700.

    How is a complete overhaul going to make it go from being worse than my Windsor on a hill to better? Since granny gear on it is 39T by 28T it makes me question a road bike setup entirely... I think...

    How about this bike compared to the Dawes? Better or worse for me, with my hills? I can't figure out how heavy it is.

    Yes but shouldn't the Schwinn have felt at least a little better than the Windsor if a lack of granny gears was really the problem?

    One idea I had was that the granny gear may work the cardio...
