    At Costco today, I saw a 3-pack of CREE LED flashlights (nominally 200 lumin each). I thought about buying them but they ran on AAAs. Still, very impressive at the price point. Throw in some Two...

    I bought my last three bikes on eBay and I think I got a good deal each time. It requires some time and effort.

    But I watch a number of popular electronic items on eBay and I'm amazed at the...

    Interesting this should come up. My Aurora 2-mode P7 finally died after 2.5 years.

  7. Supreme Supremes

    I've been riding Supremes for about 2 years and I love them. Under my cycling conditions I get a flat about every 6 months or 1500-2000 miles. The cause of the flat is almost always a tiny piece of...

    My wife gets nervous when I'm riding over 95 F, but so far I haven't found any temperature too uncomfortable for my 9.5 mile (each way) commute. It helps that Sacramento has the dry heat. I'm not...

    They're planning an all-weather bike/pedestrian river crossing when they build the bridge for the new light rail to the airport. If this happens before 2020 I'll be amazed.

    The route requires riding on the shoulder of I-5 during the early part of rush hour. I can kind of see her point. It's only about a half a mile but the traffic is going 70 and not paying much mind...

    Rant: They closed the floodgates.

    It's bad enough that it rains 9 out of every 10 days around here (Sacramento). But last week they flooded Discovery Park (my main route to work). This forced me to use a 3 mile detour to Northgate....

    I've never been called "Fred", as someone above noted, the locals have never heard of the term. I was called "Lance" once or twice which is pretty funny if you've ever seen me on a bike. (That's...

    I actually count the cyclists every day each way on my commutes and, by my very unscientific method, it sure appears that ridership is up in the last couple of years.

    They make them. I have a set of 35mm (closer to 37mm in reality) Supremes on my bike. I LOVE the ride I get with them, they're very grippy. I've had 3 flats in about 6000 miles, so if you need 0...

    A loaded question! These questions will help:
    1) How long is the commute?
    2) How much day/How much light?
    3) Are you a gambler?

    I'm glad my commute's only 45 minutes. My 2 year old Aurora P7 works great. But if I needed more time, I'd probably take my chances on the Gemini over the MagicShine at this point.
