    Almost as much as last year's 5425.3km. If it wasn't for an ankle injury that kept me off the bike for a couple weeks back in October I would have gotten close to 6000km. Maybe next year.

    Same here. The morning ride to work varies very little. But the afternoon ride home can vary quite a bit, especially when the weather is nice.

    Just shift the chain onto the smallest rear cog before removing the rear wheel.

    Personally if I have two tires of different widths I but the wider one in front.

    Giant Escapes are nice hybrids. I ride a Giant Rapid which is a sportier (and slightly pricier) hybrid.

    Nothing wrong with commuting on a hybrid.

    A little bit of comparing apples & oranges in this video. Obviously the roadies in full kit out riding for fitness, race practice, or endurance stand out when compared to the others riders who were...

    Mold? Never had that problem. With washing after every use I've only had a couple bottles discolour on the inside over the years.

    +1
    Also the powder is cheaper than the bottled stuff. You can also control the ratio with the powder as I prefer my sport drink a bit more diluted than normal.

    I'm on my 2nd Giro Indicator helmet. No complaints. Good fit, good ventilation, good weight, good price, visor is a plus for me, and it looks good without looking too "racer". The adjustable fit...

    I like it.

    If you don't mind me asking, how much did all the upgraded parts set you back?

    I've worn both the Exustar & Northwave's in tempatures from about -20C to 10C (-4F to 50F). At around 0C I'd have to switch to thick whool socks. The Exustar would start getting too warm over 5C...

    I have a pair of Exustar SM450 which appear to be the predecessor model. I only used them for one winter as I found the rubber used in the soles was too slippery. They were also akward to walk.

    I can see both sides of this. I've gotten special deals from my usual LBS and I've also lost out to someone getting an item before me.

    In your position, if I really wanted that make/model, I would...

    My winter bike has seized rear breaks that need replacing. I didn't bother trying to loosen them up enough to try and ride today. I took the bus. I would have had one heck of a tail wind into work...

    Our forcast has 15 of snow plus ice pellets & freezing on top of that.

    At least that stuff won't stick around long since it'll average +10C all of next week.

    Drop bar vs. flat bar is mostly a matter of personal preference. (Plenty of previous threads have covered the topic.)

    Personally it depends on my commute. A couple years ago I moved and my commute...

    I'm only known as "the crazy one" in the winter since I'm the only one who commutes with any sort of regularity when it's bellow -5C.
