    Confiscated, abadndonced and/or stolen Commuter bikes turn up in Police auctions by the ton (and given what bikes weigh that's a lot of bikes) and bike stores and bike co-ops bid for them and re-sell...

    You may not like the fit of the Phantom but it doesn't look like the one you linked fits any differently. I like the Phantom. I own two of them now. A 1.0 and a 2.0.

    Agree. I can do just about anything necessary to keep a bike running, and lots of things that are way beyond that level. I still value my excellent relationship with one LBS in particular, and...

    I'd be leaning towards buying over there. I mean... you could discover that you are not able to use your bike to any useful degree in Europe. Then what?

    Maybe the o.p. is a girly girl that commutes in skirts and dresses, and maybe she is not. I would find out first before automatically recommending a mixte. The Trek is ugly. Period. Aesthetics (IMO)...

    I had 2.125's and now 2.0's under the Planet Bike wide fenders. I don't think that 1.9" is a hard limit. There is considerable height adjustment available in the fender struts. Just raise them up so...

    My wife is blind with a new job (9 to 5) two miles from our new home. We moved 23 miles to get the bike commute to that distance. For the last seven years she has not worked and I had a 7 mile each...

    I don't think it has been said in this thread, but the very helmets which remain the only kind of "armor" that the majority of cyclists agree is worthwhile, are not much use in an actual collision...

    Post #7 ! But I'd take it to the next level... IMO (of course) the o.p. and his family just may not be the bike commuting type. I lived in the midwest, they come by it honestly. I read today that...

    Can't do it. Even if I tell you what pack I'm rocking there is no guarantee that you could find it in Singapore or even whether it won't be suddenly discontinued for one reason or another. When you...

    Looks like we posted simultaneously. Agree with a lot of your points. Because I own a Bob Yak which uses a similar principle, I can explain why "flex" (ball joint) isn't necessary. The trailer has a...

    I am not taking it for granted that people will realize that the bike in the rear must allow the headset to function normally. I am therefore not understanding the function of the small piece ot...

    Agree with the previous poster. 12F is pretty cold but I'm sure I've done it back in NYC. Without any batteries. On a motorcycle or snowmobile 12v gloves are fine. On a bicycle, not so much. A...

    You have good taste. I'd have a hard time picking one of those three. I'd probably rank them top to bottom: Spec., Trek, Norco. I would negotiate a dealer swap to 32mm rubber if not already OEM spec....

    Looks fine from here. That said, there has got to be a local bike store that does refurbs of previously owned bikes or a community cycling center in your neighborhood that you can stop in at. They...

    I don't know... backpacks work for me. I can wear one for 11 miles. Longer even. I would leave the U-Lock on the bike. FWIW

    Only in America does half of the roadgoing public use equipment designed for use off-road and consider that a best practice. Is there a headsmack emoticon on this forum? I see petite women in office...
