    I use gloves called "Mountain Hard Wear" in extra-large with another fabric glove inside as a liner. They are waterproof and comfortable down to freezing. If the temperature gets too high I can...

    I second (or third) the doctor idea, if your hands are cold indoors. However, I do have a couple thoughts.

    I myself find gloves ineffective below around 32 degrees, which is where I switch to...

    I got a Pugsley this year and took it out in snow for the first time in that same storm. The Pugsley also slips around in the "brown car snot," but not as much as my mountain bike did. Still, it...

    I used Mr. Tuffy's for a while, and then two tires developed slow leaks. When I went to the bike shop to have the leaks fixed, they found that the liners had moved and developed a fold, and at the...

    I have one version of the Banjo Brothers grocery panniers. They are nice, but there are two issues. You can't use them in the rain (a non-issue probably since who wants to go grocery shopping in...

    Depending on model, a backpack or messenger bag might not fit in an actual milk crate. I saw, locally, a bike with an oven rack fastened to a regular rear rack, making a platform onto which he could...

    It helps, but they say (whoever "they" are) that even if you get your 30-60 minutes of exercise a day, if you spend the rest of the day sitting, you are not active enough to be called "active."

    I tried spray-painting my bike because I wanted the winter camouflage look. Spray paint does not seem to hold up well. Also, if your surface preparation is not FLAWLESS, then every flaw will POP...

    www.nutribullet.com. This is a blender-like thing that whizzes up water, fruit, vegetables, and other stuff into a slurry which you can drink. I have one ($99 at Target) and can confirm that it...

    My commute is about SIX miles each way and it takes 45 minutes to an hour. Another variable in the equations might be what kind of bike he has. A 17-mile trip for me would be tough because it would...

    In hot weather I do sweat under the rain gear, but the trade-off still favors wearing the gear versus getting wet from the rain (for me). One must ride more slowly.
