    Pump recommendations?

    I have 26" wheels, 38mm tyres, and made the mistake of buying a Topeak RaceRocket HP pump, intended for skinny tyres. It's super small and cute and well made, but it pumps very little air per...

    I have an upside-down-chamberpot helmet which I love for its looks, and a sportier one with air vents which keeps me only marginally cooler. Both make my head sweat like crazy.

    Brompton dynohubs and lights

    What's the difference (aside from weight/price) in the Brompton configurations that have Shimano and SON dynohubs? Or does anyone have a non-stock, interesting configuration?
