    That's what I do. For stop lights -
    1. Always at least slow down
    2. If there is very very clearly no one else at the intersection, and I have a good view to see anywhere cars would be coming...

    I agree about the fork.

    However, not entirely about the frame. The most comfortable frames I've ridden are full carbon. But I've also ridden a few horrible riding full carbon frames. While not as...

    Issues with that style of rack are the same as with aluminum/steel bikes - paint getting rubbed off at the contact point, bikes ending up rubbing against each other on the rack (again usually paint...

    1. How well does it it you - biggest thing for both speed and comfort
    2. Looks like no rear shock in the back which is good - rear shocks just eat your power
    3. Slick tires would make a big...

    Wow, thanks for the link!

    1. They're coming out with a 100 lux iq-x dynamo light for 2016???
    2. Ugh, it looks like they made:
    - Cyo premimum with daytime running light (the original cyo premium)...

    I'm not going to get into a "try to turn it into a black and white decision" debate.

    There have been some problems with waterproof and battery runtimes and reliability with brand name lights as...

    It looks to me like it might be a typo. One of those pics doesn't show the daytime running lights which were added in the premium model.
    The description states 60 lux, which is the lux output of the...

    Thanks for pointing those other ones out. I made a mistake in my post as well, didn't read "helmet light", if you wanted a helmet light from Light And Motion it would probably be the Stella: ...

    I suspect you might be reading about the older Cyo lights and not the newer Cyo Premium lights. The older Cyo had different models like you're saying, the newer Cyo Premium does not. There's just 1...

    You'd really need to be a little more specific about what you mean by "lifting" shoes. A lot of times skate shoes are used by lifters, and those work pretty well as long as your platform pedal has a...

    I've tried a few pairs of flats. The first pair I tried were around $50, they always felt to short, the pins were not sticky enough either. The best pedals I've found for large feet are the DMR Vault...

    Lol, sure, but to be equally rediculous, let's say you can save $400 on the bike, but you have to walk to get it. It's going to take a year, you have to quit your job, and you won't see or talk to...

    I just use a ULock through the front wheel and front of the frame.

    If you're dealing with professional thieves like that - there's only so much you can do.

    Only question would be if it was a...

    When I went looking for a cheaper commuter bike I wouldn't be afraid to leave locked outside I heard the whole "steel is real" thing and tried several. I don't know if anyone makes a good vibration...

    While I also found the other posters reply rather snarky, the problem is that it's like you're asking "what's the best new and reliable car I can buy for $10,000?". It doesn't matter how much you...

    The drawback of the "one side flat one side clipless" pedals is that one side is always down, so you have to flip the pedal to get your foot onto it for either one style of riding or both. Also,...

    You can buy mtn shoes with just as stiff a sole as a road shoe very easily. Most of them are literally the same sole of shoe just punched differently with different holes between the mtn and road...

    It's not terribly important, but fyi the dynamo Saferides were 40 or 60 lux, the battery powered were 60 or 80 lux, so the dynamo version is not quite as bright. There's a chart here if you scroll...

    At a certain point you have to realize your time is worth a lot to. Spending 15 hours finding a cheap bike on craigslist would have been equivalent to $450 for me at a previous job.

    Yeah, it's really annoying. For shaped beam lights -
    I can get a Phillips Saferide but it's not as wide as I'd like and it's 1.5 hours or runtime on high is a little low - and they discontinued...

    From having driven behind a couple, I think it's the best dynamo tail light you can buy, and the only tail light with an advanced enough design to possibly be as good as blinking models.

    It's most likely just bad luck.

    There's 2 things to consider though:
