    I don't understand how that's even a question. Falling on ice is nothing. Usually not even clothing damage. Falling on pavement sucks bad.

    Well, depends on conditions. I have a DS500, because I ride in bad weather. In heavy fog, heavy snow, heavy rain, I definitely want more than a hotshot on the back.

    I have the same hub. Cable issues is the only problem I've had with it (unless you count being heavy and a bit inefficient as problems - but I knew about those going in).

    I have never not been...

    $45 isn't horrible, but with the Pulse 60 going for $30 (on perpetual sale at Performance) probably not a must buy.

    My wife says that Ikea has CR2032s on a card of I think 6 for $1.50 If you get in there occasionally that's probably as good a place as any to get them locally. And you can get a $5 meatball lunch...

    BTW this year I finally caved and bought Lake MX303 boots. They're very nice. It's nice getting to work and not wondering if I finally frostbit my toes this time. I also got some new gloves that...

    I finally gave up on riding every day. The day that finally convinced me after 16 months of riding every single day was this:

    It had snowed about 10 inches overnight. The snow was very wet and...

    No, it's batteries shipped in vacuum formed thin plastic trays stacked in a box. Manufacturers such as Cateye or watch makers would buy them like this.

    My favorite light is to intentionally get one with a bad hot spot and add the diffuser lens. It results in a relatively good cutoff, a decent pattern for lighting the road surface, and a wide...

    I do DIY soldering classes that use circuits that I designed that use CR2032 cells. I buy a couple of boxes of 500 at a time. They get pretty cheap when you do that. I will caution that the ones that...

    My GeoManGear battery was good but died in about the same amount of time that my junk Chinese ones did. At about 3 years they're all only lasting one ride instead of one week.

    I don't think you're going to get 3-4 hours of runtime out of a 1000 lumen light with only 2 18650 cells. LEDs are not that efficient. That's about the runtime you get out of a 1000 lumen light with...

    Depends on your equipment, and also on your body and how acclimated to cold you are.

    I've ridden down to -25*F and enjoyed it.

    If a car is behind me for more than 10 or 15 seconds, I'll stop and wait for them to go past. I don't know whether they think they're protecting me, or are just nervous. They make me nervous hanging...

    I clean mine by waiting until spring then using the power washer. I haven't noticed that salt does much other than make some surface rust on the components.

    My bike has a 2s2p battery pack. It has cheap 18650 cells in it, so figure they're maybe 1700 mah each at 3.6 volts nominal. That's 1.7 * 3.6 = 6 watt hours per cell, times 4 = 24 watt hours for...

    Worrying about fully discharging cells is a waste of time. First, LiIon actually doesn't like being fully discharged - you're better off charging them before they run too far down. Second, they're...
