    For me it is easier to throw on a pair of gloves, install the chain, remove the gloves, and keep working. I only wash my hands with soap and water after the wrenching is done, or for lunchtime. Used,...

    Hanna, if you can only have one bike, start out with a fully rigid used mountain bike. A higher end older model will be much lighter than what you currently have, and will also be affordable enough...

    My long time go-to pedals are the Wellgo MG1. Magnesium body for lightness and durability, replaceable pins for traction.

    I only wear gloves for new chains, as that lubricant is super sticky.

    New englander here. Commuted through snowmageddon last year. The secret is to visualize your traction(the ground) six inches (or perhaps more)below what you see, and pedal your ass off.

    If you want the fenders to be a (semi)permanent component for your bike, go with the sks. I know there are avid pb fans/users out there, but I am solidly in the sks camp after having used both for...

    So funny, I just did the exact same thing on my 92 hardrock commuter. The hub started slipping on a really cold day. I figured the pawls were gummed up with old frozen grease, but after soaking in...

    I can sympathize, OP. My road bike seat post clamp stripped the first time I used it (the threads stripped). It was a POS clamp, imo. I replaced it with an alloy clamp that uses a steel bolt and nut....

    Nothing too special, but I really love my victorinox carpenter. Have (ab)used it for years when I was an actual carpenter. The juice was a gift, seems pretty good. I like the shape and size.493119

    Been riding mine for several months now. Got it because it was the lightest folder for under a grand. Very agile and fast. Flickable. Folds in 10 seconds. Sweet.
