    Sioux City is about 90 miles south of Sioux Falls. They're warmer than we are. ;)

    And the people up in Thief River Falls, MN would consider Sioux Falls balmy.

    What really stops me more than the...

    Warmest I've ridden was a couple summers ago at 108 F. Put on about 40 miles that day. My normal commute is about 16 miles round trip, but I was trying to set some mileage goals so I did a 10 mile...

    I'm not saying that someone won't be good and dead if they get struck by lightning. For sure it will end your day (and then some) on a low note. :)

    What I'm saying is that the chances are...

    My opinion, FWIW, is that lightning is overrated as a risk to the bicycle commuter. Sure a handful of people get hit by lightning every year. Maybe even some of them might be on a bike. But compared...

    I like riding in the rain. I think it's fun. And I've learned that it washes off.

    Having fenders vastly improves things. When I get caught in the rain on my fenderless bikes I notice that 80% of...

    The first year I decided to commute through the winter months, I just used my good mountain bike. By the end of that winter it wasn't a good mountain bike any longer. The chemicals they dump on the...

    Hopefully you bought a Reuben for yourself as well.

    Been craving those lately for some reason.

    I've got a big hill on my commute with a stop sign at the bottom, so I have to give up all the momentum I've gained on the hill. Also, that means that I'll need to be in a lower gear when I'm ready...

    As far as disc brakes go: sure they're nice, but the vast majority of us are out there commuting with regular rim brakes and we're not crashing into things. I could easily lock up both wheels with my...

    If you're feeling anxious, nothing says you have to move directly from all-auto commuting to all-bicycle commuting. Whenever I talk to people who express an interest in commuting by bike I always...

    I shower at work, so I haul my toiletries and towel on Monday mornings and take them home on Friday evenings. I keep my toiletries in a shaving kit that sits in my desk drawer. Nobody ever knows it's...

    Went for a long ride on the Panasonic this morning which gave me some time to think. Came home and bought the Kestrel.

    I'll fix up the Panasonic over the winter so it's either ready to ride for...

    Never been hit by a car. A couple close calls, but no contact.

    I usually go down at least once per year due to snow/ice. But in those conditions I'm riding pretty low speed and I've never been...

    Motivation varies. Some days I can't wait to climb on the bike, other days I'm tempted to just relax in a seat and press a pedal.

    The thing to remember is this happens no matter what routine...

    I can give testimony to the Diamondback: I bought a 2010 Diamondback Insight RS and have put well over 5,000 miles on it in the last 5+ years. I have a bunch of bikes so it doesn't see 100% of my...

    I've found that happens to me occasionally as well. No idea why, but it always passes. Seems like I will make some gains and then my body needs a week or three to catch up, then I start making gains...

    Good point. Even if I wind up selling/donating this bike I should probably at least do enough work on it to fix the major issues for the next owner.

    I did a little bit of research on the derailleurs and seat, seeing as those are the parts that are most in need of replacing. Haven't dug too far into looking at bottom brackets/cranksets yet.

    Actually, the Reuben sandwich was invented in Omaha. Not sure where they got the "New York" thing from.

    Sounds like you work with politicians. That's even more incentive to lock up your bike. :roflmao2:
