    DeFeet Kneekers are the best. I've tried a few, but these stay up no matter what. They also remain fairly warm when wet and don't soak up a lot of water. I can get them at MEC for something like...

    I rode ss 2 winters ago here in Halifax, and fixed this last winter. Fixed was much nicer, way more control in the snow and ice.

    This will be my 3rd winter (approx. 3000km so far) with these here in Halifax. I've used them in -20degC (just a few times though) for a 30-35minute commute (once did a critical mass then commuted...

    The Mec whoosh jacket is what I use here in Halifax. A t-shirt, sweater and that does me fine for an hour in -25degC (coldest I've tried it with) with decent steady wind. Sometimes just a long sleeve...

    Continental Twisters are pretty good. I rode them all winter last year, they have good tread on them, but are still narrow enough to be fast and cut through the snow. Around my way, we get a some...

    Nope, they do seem big at first, and I admit when I got mine in the mail I was skeptical, but after trying it out it worked perfectly. No bunching up, not too hot, just right.

    They are super light weight. The plain ones are good for keeping sun off, but they do make some that are better at keeping the sun away too. They dry quick, can be used for multiple purposes. I have...

    That, perhaps, would have been a better way to put it. The important thing, I think, is to inform people that it really is quite simple, but still making sure that there CAN be a lot more to it. Just...

    You'd also be paying 1000 kids 1 penny a piece for those shirts. Not to mention fattening the coffers of the electric/gas company for the extra washing and drying you'd be doing.

    My first "real" bike was a flat bar roadish bike similar to the FCR series. I regretted it about 4 months after. I still like the flat bar road bike, but only for slowish tours and grocery shopping....

    The problem with the 58, is that the stand over is too high, I want to be able to straddle the bike with both feet on the ground. This is key for me when I have to stop and start in traffic.
