    I ran over a small rat that jumped in front of me riding home at 11 PM on the MUP. I knew it was a rat because the only thing I saw was the long tail. I felt bad and hoped that I only ran over the...

    Nice looking bike..... but the setup looks a bit unusual.

    I hope the pic is before you adjusted the seat; it has a rather large downward angle. That looks like a pretty long stem and stretch. ...

    This is the first time I've seen bike specific gloves mentioned. It all depends on how much padding you need for comfort. Given that there are several hand positions on road bikes and you can get...

    I ride clipless pedals and really can't stand flat pedals. Those look like nice toe clips: easy in, easy out but it will keep your foot from slipping on the pedal. A good choice for city streets.

    Hybrid is ideal for around town. You can put a rack on it to carry stuff. And the price is right for sure. Speed isn't an issue when you are tooling around town with the kids. That's a nice...

    I have clipless pedals and have toe overlap on both of my 51cm road bikes. It is more common on smaller frames. Some of the XS bikes come with 650c wheels which help a bit with overlap. You just...

    Yes, you are a geek :-) I would avoid the 7 speed as I have read that it might be difficult finding parts for 7 speed as it is not that common. The steel fork might dampen the road a bit more than...

    Those bikes are pretty low on the food chain. You don't mention what type or riding you plan to use this for (racing, centuries, shorter rides), but I agree these aren't very good bikes. Have you...

    Hybrid is such a broad category. It seems to cover anything just north of mountain bike to just south of road bike. Personally, I consider hybrids to be bikes that are in a given price range...

    I think Sheldon Brown's site has good information on locking a bike. It will depend on where you live and how much crime there is. Good locks are expensive.

    Which bike fits better when you test ride them? The Sirrus might be able to take wider tires and the shop might swap them out for free. 28s might be a bit on the narrow side for riding on "wood...

    I think people abused REI's more than generous return policy. People would damage the product and then return it and you would see it at the monthly back room sale. I'm like WTF at some of the...
