    Only things that bother me with other people's bikes are fit/adjustment issues and mechanical/maintenance issues. It bothers me to see a person riding a bike with the seat way too low, or struggling...

    Cool. It's great to hear that they are lasting a long time. I suspected as much. The construction is top notch. I didn't realize this design of theirs has been around that long, but I can certainly...

    Yes, it's just a seat bag, but it's my first Arkel bag and I think it's pretty great. I wrote a review on my blog for anyone is interested.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Looks like the coast is the general consensus. Is one half considered better/more scenic than the other in terms of north/south, or is it pretty much the same all the way...

    I have VO fenders and I like them a lot. Mounting them was a bit of a challenge, but I maxed out on tire size (actually exceeded the recommended size by 2mm), so I didn't have much room for error.

    I did this with my panniers. I've been using a combination of Jandd Mini Mountain panniers and Jandd Economy panniers, and I liked them except for the mounting systems. I will say that the mounting...

    I think the manufacturers often offer black as a subdued alternative to their flashier color-of-the-year. For example, Surly usually offers their frames in a custom color that may not be to many...

    A stripped-down, lightweight bike can be a better option for some commutes. I'm thinking of people who commute with a combination of bike and transit. Most subway stations won't allow bikes on the...
