    After upwards of a year's use in the midst of Boston drivers I've got to say that the Hornit is not as consistently effective as I'd like. You do need to "lay on it" and if you've got time to do...

    I guess the weather was too nice here & the bike rack at work was overflowing. Some twit managed to wedge his/her bike in next to mine so that the bikes were all tangled up (pedals in spokes,...

    MAMIL and proud of it. Until the weather gets cool commuting in work clothes just isn't feasible.

    I had 2 flats in the first 3 months on the non- TG Paselas, after riding the same commuting route for almost 2 years without incident on other tires. In fairness, I've now gone 7 months (probably...

    Makes no difference at all. Anyone who's been paying any attention at all for the last 15+ years knows that Rove = Snake.

    I actually do like the Keen Austins, and haven't yet had the issues described by Mr. Hairy Legs.

    At least as of the 2012 model year (when I was looking for a road/commuting bike to replace my stolen commuter), I don't think the Secteur had eyelets for racks or fenders. There are ways around...

    Maybe it was just bad luck but I had 2 flats (punctures) in the first 3-400 miles on the Paselas, ridden on Boston streets. I've been ok since (maybe another 3-400 miles) but my next tires won't be...

    Can't comment on the Wellgos, but I like my A530s a lot & haven't had a problem with slipping on the platforms.

    Do they break out that hand-cranked organ at breakfast, or is it just for dinner?

    Thi looks like it was a great ride despite the weather. I'm sorry I missed it! Maybe I'll be able to catch one of the North Shore rides

    The Loudbicycle horn looks intriguing, and I definitely think that a bike horn that sounds like a car horn will be more effective. I have to say that a device costing almost $100 seems like an...

    The news is full of promising new drugs under development that work great in the lab but don't work as well in vivo.

    I have considered that. The cycling-specific features that appeal to me are mostly those that enable one to close up the front better (extra buttons, neck closure). Cut might be a bit more...

    Sportcoat for cycling?

    So the H&M Brick Road cycling collection's jacket piqued my interest in a sport coat for use in commuting by bike. For better or worse, I'm supposed to look "professional", and while I can stash...

    I bought one and I think I never fixed it to the bike. I just drove in with it & hang it in my office. I find it easier to just bring spare clothes in on days I drive. It helps that I virtually...
