    It's been mentioned but worth repeating - if you're using the long end of the lens (closer to 300mm) you're probably experiencing camera shake rather than focus issues. Your shutter speed needs to be...

    It's weird the Fuji came with those microshift bar ends. You'd think they would put Dura Ace on there and be done with it. That said I've not had any issues with Dura Ace shifters. Pretty much as...

    It's possible those two bikes will not be much of a step up from your current one. You don't mention a budget but you will probably be better off going to a bike store and riding a few to get a feel...

    Everything I've read says that a flashing light uses less resources than one on constant power - some sources say far less. I use a Planet Bike Superflash that takes 2 AAA batteries and the last...

    My own personal anecdotal reasoning is when driving I notice a bike with a rear flasher or front light much sooner than I see one without.

    Simple as that.

    I have two of these below, one of which I've had for probably close to 3 years. I have had to buy an additional battery pack because the original crapped out and a charger broke. I can't speak for...

    It's great you made it out alive but just think of the lives you ruined of those who had the misfortune of hearing your toxic music. And be sure to post your play list so we can criticize it and...

    Good grief. Now we've even moved on to the "my crappy music is better than your crappy music" phase of the thread.

    Here's what I use: Bluetooth Speaker

    I cut an old water bottle so I can drop the speaker right in and then push the top part I cut off down inside to hold it in. It actually acts almost like a...

    I ride through a couple school zones and when there's a bunch of people & cars around I turn it down to a point where it's no louder than what you'd hear maybe coming out of a car. I can understand...

    I do and I started a thread on the bluetooth speaker I use back in January. As for bothering other cyclists, I've see probably 2 other commuters on my route since 2009. It's not something I would...

    As much as I've wanted to show people they were wrong, it NEVER worked. Now I avoid any of those potential situations altogether. Even when I'm driving if someone is following too closely I just...

    I think until local bike shops and online retailers embrace the belt drive and have the same amount of belt as chain driven in stock it won't catch on.

    As for me, I'll take a 1x10 chain drive over...

    That's a head scratcher. The spokes were separated from the rim and *both* wheels fell off?

    I guess this is where we begin speculating whether it was Chinese carbon or a "BSO."

    Whatever...

    No way I'd be putting my d7100 & lenses in any rear bag. Think of how jarring even small holes in the road can be. There's really no padding in those Topeak bags worth risking gear like that. I...

    Looks pretty good to me. In the second picture your knee looks locked but I think it's because your heel is down. I'm not sure I would lower the saddle.
