    LED flashlights ... school me

    I use an LED flashlight for my bike light. The one I have I got cheap from Amazon or maybe that slow-boat import business in Taiwan (I have two of these, similar but not exactly the same).

    I'm waiting for the belt that has a quick-connect link of some kind.

    Would it take a giant trick of engineering to design one?

    I felt a big difference going to 25s. Most people do.

    Smoother ride, more comfortable ride. You'll enjoy it.

    After riding 25s for a few years, I upgraded — I now ride 28s.

    I ride a bike with an internal-gear hub, as some of you might do, on my commutes. The hub a Shimano Alfine works well. The gearing, however, is too high.

    OK, I have to brag. I had a local builder make my commuter bike, and he hid the wires in the tubes for the front rack and rear rack and the tubes of the frame itself.

    I have a double with a hard-to-pronounce name (sorry, don't have the bike with me and can't remember).

    It works well. Can't be beat when loading the bike with groceries.
