    I carry a pair of Sealskinz socks in my pannier, and break them out if I have to ride in the rain. Shoes are Lake winter cycling boots in winter, Keen cycling sandals in summer.

    I started cycle commuting when I was 50; I'm now fast approaching 62. My year-round 13+ mile commute is my fountain of youth.

    This makes it sound like you don't really have much of a problem. Ride on that vast majority of days that don't matter, and get there when you get there. Drive on the days when it really matters, at...

    Could it be tension headache caused by shoulder/neck stress from your riding position? If you're leaning heavily on your arms, or leaning forward with head up (so you can see where you're going)...

    Yea this is one of those topics that cycles around (pun intended) every few years on forums. Pretty sure I've seen it on here a few years back. Anyway, mine is a cartoon character from my childhood...

    Ah, got it, thanks. I was interpreting it as you had to be voted in just to be a rank and file member; I'd forgotten that deacons, elders and such were elected. We had that in our church too when I...

    Pardon my ignorance, but I have to ask: what religion (or denomination) requires being voted in by the congregation in order to be a member?

    I use a helmet mirror now, and have used bar end mirrors in the past, but I still always do a head turn before moving into a lane.

    yea, I suppose that's possible, thanks for the clarification. But I think it would be less hassle to just detach the cable than to try to work on a wheel that is still tethered to the bike - like I...

    The belt itself doesn't make wheel removal any more difficult than with a chain. But most belt-drive bikes use an IGH on the rear wheel (unless it's a single speed bike). This means that when you...
