    Congrats on the bike.

    Do you think that you'll ride it on the freewheel side or the fixed side?

    I don't understand why one cannot also do this while riding FG. I get out of the saddle on my FG when approaching an uneven surface.

    Also consider at least a front brake. I have one and I find it...

    Fits
    Is in my budget
    Looks good to me
    Meets my needs

    Let's take that Kona:

    I've actually owned a Soho-S since 2011 and I commute on it frequently. I'm not certain, but I think the "S" was for "Single", since Trek made a version that was not a single-speed. It's an...

    I've learned that jobs, spouses and bikes come and go, but somehow replacements take their place. It will all work out.

    2014!! How was your commute today?

    A city truck salting the street to fight black ice went past my window as I was having coffee, so another day without riding. :(

    Still too much ice on my street. I guess I could walk my bike out of my neighborhood.

    I went out earlier this week when it was about 10, but there was no wind or snow on the ground. No way I'm going out now with this arctic blast. No bicycle commutes for me until at least Wednesday.

    Gawd, I wish that bikes like these would show up on CL here in Kansas City. I too am 5'9". I'd show up with cash and buy that 53.

    2013!! How Was your Commute Today?

    9 degrees, but the winds were calm. I ride with safety glasses, but I'm thinking of getting some goggles on these really cold days.

    The good news is that we had a "warm" day in Kansas City on Saturday to melt the ice and snow that has been on the ground for the past week. Now, it's just cold. Forecast is for 10 degrees with a...

    Recently added a Brooks B17 seat, new Michelin City tires after getting a flat on the stock Bontragers, and a White Industries ENO freewheel. I love riding this bike.

    It is hit or miss. The first group ride I showed-up for was described as "family friendly", but my name needed to be Schlek because there was no way I could keep up. I've since found two that are...

    I'd think that it would only be possible to get one pinch flat at a time, since the "pinch" requires air pressure. I've had one pinch flat and the air went out in a couple of seconds. Perhaps there...

    I use mapmyride. Works well. Plus, I'm cheap, so free is the best price.

    I bought a 2013 Kona in a 53, because the guy selling it to me said that the 49 (the next size down in the Kona line for that model) was too small. Guess what? The 53 was still too big! ...

    Is this a locally owned LBS or part of a chain? If it's local, maybe talk to the owner and let him/her know about your disappointment. Maybe they'd cut you a deal on a '13.

    I did the backpack thing when I only commuted to the bus, which is about 4 miles. Now that ride the full 22 miles to work a few times a week, a Topeak rack and bags is the best solution for me.

    I'm hoping to make it to an LBS this weekend to look at the '13 version of the Z series. I tried the Z85 a few months ago (comes with mostly 105 components) @ $1,349, but the Z5 is another $410 for...
