    -6C this morning (22F) but the pavement was mostly clear so I biked to work. Usually at that temperature my left hand fingers get cold, but I today I tried some leather winter mitts and they worked...

    As I said I generally use a pannier, but if I carry my laptop, I use my light briefcase as if it were a messenger bag, as I think it gets less jolts that way.

    This guys knows more than me. Do you think the bent fork means the head tube or bearing tracks are damaged?

    I don’t know...maybe someone else can answer.

    Actually, probably no. You have cantilever brakes.

    Regarding seat (or, properly, saddle) position, there are three variables: height, tilt, and forward/backward adjustment.

    Whoever owned the bike before slid the seat as far back on its rails as...

    It doesn't look as bad in the second picture but it still looks like it is there. The forward slant and forward curve of the fork fine tune how the bike steers, and make it more stable and less...

    From the instagram picture, I'm wondering if the front fork is bent back but it might just be the camera angle or the turn of the wheel. Can you take a picture with the front wheel straight? The...

    This surprises me. What is that make the backpack or bag so indispensible?

    Sounds good. Be sure to check out the commuting forum and living car-free forum and presumably the single-speed/fixed gear forum

    The GT looks like it would be reasonably light and fast. Again, it has a triple front chain ring set, so good gearing for hills.

    In the first photo, presumably taken from a brochure or online ad,...

    Nice photos, and it's very scenic there. Looking at the linked photos - do they always light that bridge up like that at night (maybe for aircraft?) or just on special occasions? That's a lot of...

    I think the Giant will be a little easier on the hills as it will likely be lighter - but not especially fast on flat sections due to the upright position. The Schwinn shown earlier probably offers a...

    The only concern with the last one is that it has a very upright riding position (see how much higher the handlebars are than the seat), that isn't very aerodynamic. However as quite a new bike it...

    That Schwinn has great retro chic. I love the chrome dork disk. The suicide levers on the brakes have to go, however.

    I would guess the Schwinn will weigh in in the mid 20s.
