    I'm at about the same point as the OP in terms of getting ready to ride a century. The heat in my area has been holding me back from rides that go much past 11:00 AM though. (It's hitting 95-100...

    I just got an Abus Hyban about a month ago. I like it a lot. It has good ventilation and a nice taillight on back that runs in three different modes (two blinking and one steady).

    I'm on a Bianchi Volpe that runs 28s and could go wider. It it steel, has a Tiagra triple, and will take racks and fenders. It was $1300. You can get the disc brake version for $1600. I've also...

    Brian helped out with some e-mail correspondence. Joey was the clerk who helped us in the shop. They were both fantastic. Brian was very responsive with e-mails, and also answered some technical...

    Well color me surprised. He really liked the Bacchetta Giro 20 and was thrilled with the Bella. But when he got on the Catrike Expedition, he got a big grin on his face and declared "Game over!" So,...

    Good to know. I'll be sure to tell him. (I do that on a DF too, but only because my laces are so long.)

    Thanks for the advice Recumbomatic. My husband has never been fast on the bike, which is fine. He likes a good social ride. I'm kind of excited about the possibility that he'll actually be faster on...

    Thanks. That does look interesting. It is one of the brands Bike Center carries, so we'll be sure to have a look.



    I'm really glad to hear this.

    We're thinking about going either Tuesday...

    Thanks VegasTriker. I'll have a look there. Your PM also made me think that I should probably clarify why we don't want to go with a low-slung trike: The issue isn't the position of the trike itself,...
  10. Recumbent for 6'2" spouse - Bike Center in St. Louis

    My spouse would like to switch to a recumbent bike. The nearest retailer to us that carries multiple brands is in St. Louis, MO, so we're planning to make a trip over there in the next couple of...

    Sounds really interesting PatrickGSR94. I'm doing something similar later this month. It's a course with the League of American Bicyclists, Traffic Safety 101. After that I'm planning to do their...

    Thanks for the recommendations. I'll have a look. If I buy from clymb, I'll be sure to use your link.

    That's terrific! I see you already have fenders, so once you have the rack and some lights you'll be all set. Have fun!
  15. I completely agree with this. My response was...

    I completely agree with this. My response was more about acknowledging existing norms. The OP may work in a context where accepting natural human odors could result in getting fired.

    I would say,...

    Thanks. I've been thinking about getting tights for cold weather but had noticed the cycling tights are pretty pricey. Being able to pull running tights over cycling shorts is a great idea.

    Do you have a particular place where you get your running tights or a brand you recommend?
  18. Not sure where OP is, but I'm dealing with...

    Not sure where OP is, but I'm dealing with weather here in Memphis that no one on that list (except maybe the Spanish) ever have to deal with. 90s and very high humidity. Plus, social norms are...

    This is what I do, plus some witch hazel and a wash cloth or paper towel to wipe down.

    Like mozad655, I use interruptor levers (Chris King Cross Top) in traffic. They cost about $100 (including labor) and were well worth it for me. This position allows me to be relatively upright and...

    I'm also an aspiring long distance cyclist, so take this for what it's worth: have you looked into a recumbent?

    i get your point, but would like to point out that it easier to ride a bike in heels than it is to walk in them. I do it all the time. 😀
