    I was also going to suggest Champoeg. From Portland, take 43 to Lake Oswego, then Stafford to SW Mountain Rd, then follow Mountain Rd to the Canby Ferry and cross the Willamette there. Once across,...

    Looking at the specs, the two bikes are roughly the same quality. However, the Raleigh is significantly cheaper, so I'd say that one offers a better value.

    They specs don't list tire clearance,...

    1.6 will be faster.

    I don't generally think of injuries as "health risks". To me, health risks are conditions like obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, etc... Pretty much the kind of things that...

    Interesting. I used your link and got the same product price. However, it must have geolocated my IP (I'm in Europe) and recalculated the shipping.

    Nice price, but $40 shipping for light, foldable tires is a bit much, I think.

    With wide cassettes so common these days, I think a compact double would be sufficient for SFO. Consider a 30/46 front with 11-34 rear. That will give you a range of 24-113 gear inches, which is...

    I didn't see the hill in the OP's picture. I assume it's there, somewhere.

    I live in the Alps where we have more than a few steep hills. No warning signs for cyclists, though. OTOH, there are...

    You can buy a lot of Koolstop salmon brake pads with the money you saved and still have some cash left over. Discs are fine, but they're not the be all and end all of braking. Especially if the...

    The Nashbar bike is very well specced for that price. The frame is basically a Crosscheck with straight blade forks, though perhaps with a little less tire clearance. Looks like it would make an...

    I think Schwalbe Marathon Mondials would be good for the OP's case. They roll well on pavement and dirt, they're puncture resistant, and much lighter than the Marathon Pluses (although heavier than...

    In 2009, my commute went from a mostly flat 25 miles RT to 43 miles RT with 3000 ft of climbing. It took me about 2-3 months to get used to the change. I did it every weekday for a couple of years...

    Cane Creek makes nice v-brake levers with comfortable hoods. With road levers, you could also get mini v-brakes. A little less clearance, but no travel agents.

    Don't turn bike commuting into a chore. Since you're starting a new job that's already physical, it may not be a bad idea to take a little break until you get into your new work routine.

    Very good video! Although I usually filter around cars at lights, when it comes to large trucks or buses, I stay behind them. I've read too many cycling-related obituaries due to large vehicles,...

    Last week, I stopped for a pedestrian in a crosswalk and got rear ended by another bike commuter. Neither of us were hurt, she apologized sincerely, and we went on our way. If we had been in cars,...

    When my brifters wore out a few years ago (late 90s era Shimano RSX), I replaced them with Ultegra bar end shifters. I'm glad I did. The installation was very easy, inexpensive, and the result was...
