    Lazers use a small button battery. I don't know how long it lasts, but could be an expense issue.

    I'd rather go uphill at 40 mph, but unfortunately I can only manage 30 mph. I'd blame this on my helmet, but I really can't in good faith.

    If you end up building your own, consider Sun Ringle CR-18 rims. I have these bargain rims on my commuting bike and have found them to be rugged and reliable.

    I've commuted by bike or by foot since the early 80's. Yes there were some periods when I mostly drove, but those were a matter of necessity because of needing a car at work. Because cycling to...

    I have panniers and routinely carry 2 gallons of water home with me. I use 4 half gallon jugs and put two on each side. Never had an issue with leakage.

    There are a lot of rims available that might match the look of the old ones. Unless your vintage bike is a good example of a rare or collectible one, you probably be happier replacing the old ones.

    I have a pair of the VAR plier type. They are indeed the best tool for the job. I bought them decades ago for cheap - one of the "good" investments.

    My 7 mile commute on my light fast bike is less than 5 minutes quicker than on my 33 pound commuter loaded with 20 pounds of cargo. Not much faster, but a lot more fun.
