    I don't really have any advice, just my own story.

    After my collision with a car, which crushed my left wrist "like an egg" (according to the surgeon), I didn't cycle-commute again for 7 months,...

    Pretty easy decision - my Kona Jake the Snake. That poor bike has been grossly ignored the last couple years, but it's easily my best and most versatile bike.

    That said, I'd have a hard time...

    My IPM is about 1.5, but the lights downtown are timed, not triggered by sensors, so some lights are always green when I get to the intersection, so really, those shouldn't count. Effectively, the...

    Overall a pleasant commute in temps just below freezing. Riding down a road I heard a funny sound from a car passing me - I could see right away that the rear passenger-side tire was flat. It was a...

    I rode to floor hockey once with my stick attached like that. Probably lighter than a metal detector, but it worked well!

    Chilly this morning at -7C/19F, but the afternoon will be above freezing,...

    -5C/23F and very frosty on the trails and some roads. On one trail that is usually fairly busy with cycle-commuter traffic, I counted only 5 distinct tire tracks in the frost. I'm sure more came...

    About -6C/21F when I left home. I should have worn warmer gloves. Still rode the skinny-tire fixie, but I saw a guy on a fatbike, guess he's ready for winter. Bridge decks were pretty frosty,...

    I bet my commute was colder than yours :). -6C/21F. Brr. I was dressed warm enough, but barely - my fingers and toes were starting to get cold by the time I got to work. Nice commute that was soured...

    Is the wheel still true? I hit a cement block hard with my back wheel once; the tire was fine, but the wheel was way out of whack.

    0C/32F with a nice stiff tailwind. Had a few of those zen moments where I was cruising along at 30 km/h with no wind noise in my ears.

    Another pleasant commute this morning. I saw lots of other cycle commuters on the way; I guess we're all trying to take advantage of these nice days while we still have them.

    Had no jam in my legs this morning and felt like I was lumbering up the hills on my fixed gear. Managed to pass the same lady twice, once near the beginning of my route and once near the end - she...

    Maybe a bent or broken axle? Hold your frame and try to wiggle the wheel. It shouldn't move. That was a problem I had with an old bike once.

    The mechanics sub-forum would be a good place for this...

    A rather pleasant commute this morning. Cool but not cold (well, a month ago, 5C would have been cold, now it's cool), low winds, and a beautiful sunrise over the river. Saw few other cyclists this...

    The pedestrian/driver is obviously not Canadian. A true Canadian in that situation would have said, "oh, excuse me, eh?" to the cyclist.

    I wonder if riding a fixed gear is doing more damage to my knees than riding in shorts down to 5C.

    Just curious... what constitutes "very chilly" in SC?

    'Twas a balmy 6C (43F) in Edmonton this morning, warm enough for shorts and a long-sleeve shirt (no jacket). I see we were a tad warmer than...

    Couple degrees warmer than yesterday (so, just above freezing instead of just below), and no forgotten items or other mishaps to slow me down.
