    Some comments:

    1. Yes, a quality bike will make a big difference.

    The critical factors are fit and condition. If the bike is making weird noises, that's usually a sign that something needs to...
  2. I agree with your earlier post that the ride will...

    I agree with your earlier post that the ride will get easier as you get stronger. To be clear, you don't replace IGH; you're just attaching a new sprocket you can buy for $15. Cost and time to...

    To me posts #40 and #63 give the answer to the question in #71 ,





    Why would I give up my right to bicycle for transportation on roads in the US now because they have better laws and...

    The point is that putting a larger sprocket on the rear hub might easily remove the need to consider another bike. Your bicycle will readily accept a larger rear sprocket that will make hill...

    Commuting, I find the most important items are lights, a rack and panniers or saddlebag (which you already have).

    I wouldn't expect new wheels to have a huge impact, so you might wait on new...

    I haven't ridden in San Francisco, but my experience in urban areas is that my speed may vary from 8-17+mph. The difference depends on traffic, time of day (traffic), route and weather more than...

    This does not fit my observation at all.

    My eperience in urban bicycling (Philadelphia, Wilmington DE) is that while most motorists understand the "pass when safe" rule, the "Must pass bicyclist"...

    My experience parking $100-$150 bicycles is limited to evening events after work or events on weekends (afternoon/evening). I've found a cheap U lock (like yours) to be adequate. Note (a) I'm...

    To the OP,
    This is a good bike for a good price if you want reliability more than light weight. [Dynaryder is right, this is a Fusion (next model up from Transfer)] Finding internal gears, disc...

    Is Cambridge putting the buffer between the parked cars and the bike lane now? I've only seen buffers between the traffic lane and the bike lane. See link to Walnut St. in Philadelphia below; note...

    I've taken NJ Transit/SEPTA (with a bicycle) twice and Bolt once (without bicycle) since these posts.

    I think NJ Transit & SEPTA will be better for you, but each has its advantages and...

    You do have options, but they are not convenient as the advertised roll on and roll off.

    I found out that Amtak does carry checked bags between Phildelphia and New York, but you won't find out by...

    I don't believe it either.
    I find when traffic is light, most motorists just pass. The complaints are most aggressive and profane in congested traffic, where they can't drive any faster than...

    Is Caltrans involved with offroad paths, or just on street facilities?

    The trails I've seen in PA (especially Chester Valley and others nearby, large parts of Schuylkill) are justified as...

    I'd say it was worth it - I haven't seen another post anywhere near this entertaining, and others enjoyed it too.
    The follow ups with the photograph and the conversation with the manufacturer were...

    If you haven't left already

    I spent my first week here staying near the Newark airport, and I'll confirm your comment that if you're not familiar with the route you're probably better off taking...

    If CPH is Copenhagen, I think you'll find the US is a different environment. When I bicycled to the Philadelphia airport, bicycle parking at the airport was difficult, but parking at train...

    To the OP:

    I've bicycled to and from the Philadelphia airport from the south, so I have experience. I'm not quite sure if your concerns are

    I don't presume to tell the Dutch what to do in the Netherlands; the relevant point for Americans is to realize that painting door zone bike lanes or even copying Dutch facilities here doesn't make...

    Are you glad the driver was ticketed for harassment, or do you think the cyclist should have received multiple tickets (he was cited for riding in the center of a narrow lane)? If you are glad the...

    Depending on one way streets, I'll often stop at red lights in the middle/left of the lane to let motorists go right on red. At some intersections this is appreciated, but there have been a few...

    Where do you live? Do they punish motorists for hitting pedestrians or bicyclists where you ride?

    I've yet to see these well designed junctions or bike lanes. Locally bike lanes go all they...

    I don't know if Bicycling's magazine uses the same criteria as LAB, but my understanding is that LAB considers official policies, and designated facilities, but does not attach much weight to...
