    people are cranky about looking at headlights. That's why, while driving a car, you have to keep switching to brights so you can dim when oncoming cars can see you do it. Human eyes adapt to lack...

    I have yet to see a bicycle light that is brighter than a car headlight. Bike lights are getting there, and I know there are brighter ones than I have seen, but car headlights are really bright,...

    if you are torch welding or brazing, you can use fitover Ace #3 or Ace #2 lampmaker glasses. I have some #5 welding glasses that fit on top of my glasses. I also have reading glasses to use...

    I am much happier with my 800 now that I know not to display maps. I find the best screen is just the list of turns. I was riding with map display recently and found that it seems to burn through...

    I wish I had pics of that disaster. Lots of things failed other than the tire, so it was hard to tell what went first. Steel frame, repairable, not cheap to fix. It was during a brevet, so after...

    I live in the mountains and my gravel bike has a 42/11 high gear. I think it's fine. I find myself spinning a little more than is comfortable sometimes, but that is good for me and I've been trying...

    I think the Gomadic must have a boost stage in its regulator or else it wouldn't work as well as it does. You can use it just fine with rechargeable batteries, for example. Same with the "lipstick"...

    I'm trying to decide if I will ride this weekend's 200k on my All City Macho Man. It's a nice bike, maybe a little eyelet-deficient. Worked great on the gravel 200k I did 2 weeks ago

    bent frames seem to command more than they are worth to me. I don't know if this is worth the asking price, but my guess is he will get it

    I remember the first led watches back in the '70s. It doesn't really take much of an led to make a pretty good tail light, so I'm guessing led tail lights showed up reasonably soon after red leds got...

    I hope the SRAM wireless materializes. It isn't that big of a deal for most road bikes, but I want a travel bike, and wires are an annoyance

    The space horse is a nice bike, and cheap. If you want to do a lot of long distance, I would probably go with the VO out of that list. My reasoning is that a traditional front bag is nice.

    can you post pics of the eyelets? If they are on the outside of the drops, that could cause problems with most racks. I would think they would put them where most breezer dropouts have the eyelets,...

    yes, this the framebuilders forum, we talk about taking tubes and making a frame. So your post is not in the right place. Having said that, you haven't really given us anything to work with here. ...

    I have to say that I disagree with your premise. There are lots of led tail lights out there that spread the light around. I often check to make sure my tail light is on just by looking at the...

    The OP didn't really define 'cold', so it's hard to say. I start to worry if it's going to be much below 20F. I might not ride if it's going to be below 10F. I have shoes that will take those kind...
