    Thanks for the replies. I appreciate the feedback.
    I know I ride through some nasty stuff, so I'm hesitant to try spending more money on 'better' components. I'd hate to spend $100+ dollars to find...

    FC 5800 BB compatability?

    Howdy,

    I built up a 2015 Specialized AWOL frame with a mostly 5800 11 speed drivetrain. My current BB is a threaded SM BBR60.
    After 2700...

    I've had good luck with Duck brand tape, found at Wal-Mart. It's lasted several years on a few different helmets.

    Show your helmet mounted lights

    95% of my commute is after dark. For a long time, I used either a BlackBurn Flea or an Axiom Spark (Knog style) light in blink mode. It seemed to work well for being seen in urban/suburban areas.

    You might be able to spend a lot of money to get a 'ventilated' backpack that actually works.

    You may just have to deal with it, or switch to a rack and pannier.

    If I were looking for a small light with a simple mounting strap, I'd go with a Serfas Raider

    The problem is, once you use a real, quality headlight, these just aren't enough.

    Conti Ultra Gatorskins (700x28C) - I just put 8,000 commuting miles in two years on the rear tire with no flats. Wet traction sucks, but they are good for dry conditions. Ride quality is okay.

    I guess if you ride like that, squeezing between cars, and hugging the curb to snake around them, then yes, you need a loud horn.
