    I rode out to Port Jefferson last summer (with your help planning the route, Papa Tom :)). On the way back, I stopped at light, and a roadie in full kit stops next to me. I'm wearing cargo shorts and...

    No worries. I currently use a Hyalite commuter pannier, which works well enough. It's basically a waterproof roll top sack with shoulder strap. At that discounted strap, I might have jumped on a...

    I was excited to see this, but the bag you link to is a regular messenger bag, not a pannier; there are no rack attachments. The Timbuk2 Shift appears to be discontinued, and none of their current...

    How long have you had your Edge 500? Mine is falling apart too, and held together with scotch tape. The tape keeps the buttons in and functioning, for now. I'm also eyeing the 520, but hope that the...

    I lightly inflated the tube before installing. It think it was still floppy, so perhaps I should inflate a little more next time. The tube is labeled 20" x 1/1.25/1.50".

    I've only used CO2 a couple of times, so I don't have much experience with it, and I re-inflated the tire simply because it was what I was told to do. Had I known it would cause the tube to pop, I...

    Thanks for the detailed reply.



    There was no bang, more like a loud hiss, and the tire did not blow off the rim. So it wasn't option 1.

    I live in a city of urban canyons, so finding GPS satellites can be dicey, and it's definitely better in some neighborhoods than others. In general, I've found that my phone (currently an HTC One M8)...

    Tube popped. Did I do something wrong?

    A couple of nights ago I got a rear flat. I replaced the tube with a new one, inflated it with CO2, and rode 13 miles home. When I got home, I deflated the tire and reinflated it with a floor pump,...

    Tangential, but technically the walkway over the Triborough is not a bike lane. A sign on the Randall's Island side (and maybe on the Queens side too) tells you that pursuant to section yada yada of...
