    I did a google search that lead me to Forbes.com, where they said tht the average settlement for a dog bite was ~$26 000 last year.

    I don't know if that is a perfect comparison. Variety is a good thing with bicycles themselves, but traffic laws are probably better when standardized across a wide area.

    I actually take the exact opposite philosophy, bringing my bike inside to protect it. Southern Ontario usually has mild winters, just cold enough to melt, freeze, thaw, and so on every day. Taking...

    I live in a small backwater town in Ontario, not far from Buffalo, NY. Last Christmas was warm enough to mow my lawn in a t-shirt, and there weren't even six weeks of actual cold and snow.

    It wa about ten years ago that I gave up my car for good and started relying mainly on a bike to get around town. In that time, I've encountered one motorist with this type of road rage. One. In...

    You say that your gore-tex overshoes lost their water resistance after a year, but that is easy to fix. All gore-tex fabric has a chemical treatment that eventually wears out and needs to be...

    I have almost never had any of those problems; just the occasional late bus. And that will often get exaggerated into "every bus" being late "all the time".

    And most people without a car still...

    If you're not concerned about rain, maybe some kind of reflective strip would be better? Something you could tie or stick on to the bag. But if you found a $10 cover with some reflective material...

    The instructions with the light say 15 km/h, but I get full brightness going just a bit faster than walking pace. The light also has capacitors so that you don't go dark when stopping at a red...

    The subject of "best" headlight is contentious and subject to personal preference. I'm happy with my Edelux II headlight and Secula taillight and would recommend them to anybody.

    That thing looks like way more than you need. My backpack was $40 and came with its own rain cover. But you probably like the bag you have and don't want to replace the whole thing. I say you...

    I wore sandals all summer, and as the weather gets cooler I stretch a pair of neoprene overshoes on top. That'll be good until the weather is consistently below freezing, and then I'll go right to...

    In the OP, you don't specify the temperature, so I'll cover all my bases.

    It occurred to me that the rim strip might be the problem. It isn't adhesive, and doesn't even feel like rubber; more of a nylon compound. The one area of one strip looks heavily depressed, and...

    This really blows

    In the last two weeks, I've blows exactly four tubes -- three in the rear wheel and one in the front. Each time, the tube looked like it was ripped open, not like a clean cut or puncture. All four...
