    Home to work is about 19 miles by my usual, relatively direct morning route. My most frequent alternative brings that up to 21 miles. The reverse trip is generally slightly (.5 miles?) longer, due to...

    FWIW I've used my Road Morph on MTB tires and it works well enough. I'm sure the Mt. Morph is faster, but if I had multiple bikes, I'd err on the side of the Road version. It is good enough that I...

    Caveat: I have NOT tried riding in these, but I noticed some inexpensive golf pants at my local Costco for $20 which looked like 'business casual' khakis (in a variety of solid colors), but felt...

    I don't know your neighborhood, but I've been leaving a trunk rack on my car most of the time for years and it's never been stolen. I think about it sometimes, but so far, so good. This includes...

    Thanks. I presume it is only useful for flat bar bikes, as I can't quite envision mounting it on my drops. And I'll be honest: I'm not sure I've ever used twist grip shifters - I'd guess you're right...

    I use a super cheap "Action Shot" from Jakks Pacific, mounted on the bars. If I had the cash, I'd probably go with a GoPro Hero; the image quality I've seen from Go Pro is worlds ahead of what I see...

    I share your experience, somewhat, though I don't think I totally match your sense. It is worth noting that the hill profile is such that I do a lot more climbing on the ride home. I too ride MWF...
