    As people know, I have not been impressed by my dyno-light, or the one before it. However, I may order one of these when they become available.

    I am in agreement with this. As far as disc brakes, I have commuted both with and without them. However, any commuter I get, in the future, will have them; for commuting I have just found them to be...

    473130

    I had a copy of that poster in my classroom in China. When I left I gave it to another teacher. Now they are out of print.

    I found where to send a request, I doubt they have any left;...

    I have lived in plenty of cities with mandatory bicycle registration. It doesn't seem to change a thing: motorist courtesy, theft rates, recover rates, or claims that cyclists don't belong on the...

    Having worked as a CPS investigator, such a complaint would be evaled-out. Meaning that it would typically be rejected for investigation on a prima-facie basis. Investigators have more meaningful...

    For that matter, I have trouble with 10k/month. My sister owns a small rural package delivery company. They don't drive that much. Those are professional driving numbers. About all a person putting...

    Pretty much nothing. I fly in and out of the town I work in and keep a bike here. In Salt Lake I don't have a car. My wife doesn't drive and I just haven't gotten around to buying one there.

    I still remember my minimum wage jobs in the 80's. Employers would say, right in the interview, they they would not hire people who don't have a car. A bicycle was specifically mentioned as being...

    Thanks, I hadn't seen that document. I don't know where I got the idea that the N330 was lighter. Clearly both the N330 and the N360 are shown as being the same weight (2450 grams).

    Correct, I have a N360. As I understand the new N330 is lighter, which seems backward for me. The lower range seems like it would be best suited for an e-bike. It is possible that it is both lighter...

    That is an astoundingly low number. The bay area has a population between 4.5 and 8.5 Million, depending on what gets included. Two non-participant deaths in five years is a safety record to boast...

    In general I agree with these, they are very different bikes. I consider the AWOL to be better suited for commuting.

    However, as others have said, if you are really smitten by Carbon, try for...

    I rode a motorcycle for my sole transportation, other than my bicycle, for about five years. I never had a problem. The reality is that most motorcycle accidents are single vehicle accidents (parking...

    Craigs list works if you aren't actually looking for anything, just perusing for deals. With that in mind I would look into what you need to do to the bike you have. Those Peugeots weren't bad bikes....

    I disagree, I think they will go away thinking that it is obviously stupid for cyclists to be stoping at each stopsign.

    How does obeying the law, in a highly visible manner, reinforce the stereotype of lawlessness?
