    I had a two stage injury - this was about in '96.

    First I crashed while mountain biking, trying to do a low-speed jump over a load of gravel dumped on the trail. My front wheel nose-dived into a...

    There's some very minimalist equipment of that sort near my old office: that's rowing machine in the foreground and an eliptical by the people, with yellow footplates and handles visible above their...

    Seven loops of Poplar Plains Rd. hill to work on fitness yesterday. Some random other guy (also a greybeard, like me) doing a longer loop, kept up with me, so I'm not that fast. However I got the...

    Sounds good. However, although you exercise regularily, you also mentioned in another thread, that you never walk anywhere if you can avoid it, so one concern for you with all the non-weight...

    Slow weight loss is probably also better physiologically, to allow the body time to adapt to a new homeostasis.

    What a joke - they won a mileage prize by drafting a Ford Excursion, but they didn't include the Excursion's gas.

    I'm a car light bike commuter. I don't track my cycling costs, although I did a few years ago. I think it was three or four hundred dollars a year, including amortized bike purchases, but I bike to...

    I only go to a fitness gym when I'm in a hotel and it's included, but I usually end up on the bike :rolleyes:

    We have a court type of gym at work and I sometimes play badminton there. That's a...

    I commute on a 1984 Trek, so I can't help :)

    For that distance you probably still want a road oriented bike with drop bars. If you don't plan to also use it for fast club rides or races, you may...

    You can also try tilting it very slightly up. That stops you sliding forward onto the narrow part.

    Since this thread started, I've noticed a steady increase in the number of cyclists in town and at work. In fact our CEO is a roadie and she sometimes bike commutes.

    What's your riding position. Do you sit upright like Mary Poppins, tilted forward at 45 degrees like many commuters, or much lower like a racer?

    I had to deviate a bit on my route to work yesterday due to road repair. I also meandered a bit on the way home, still colouring in bits and pieces of the map between my house and office. So about 2...

    My parents both worked and both had cars in the 1960s, but we lived in an older inner suburb where the kids all walked or biked to school. My dad always encouraged physical activity. My brother...

    You might have gone a bit overboard with all those purchases, but if it gets you riding, why not?

    I don't think you can use those extra spacers because your stem is clamped at the top of the...

    That's probably as high as the bars go. I believe that is a threadless headset where the top tube of the fork (steerer tube) protrudes up through the frame, and the handlebar stem is clamped to the...

    I guess the bicycle itself is a good example of technology helping you live light. Don't need a horse and carriage to go anywhere.

    You can see about raising the bars slightly - that would be the quickest fix for your too low riding position. You probably would need to get some kind of spacers or extenders for the steering tube,...

    Your parents don't owe you a ride. How far is the commute? Is it uphill or downhill (or both?)

    There are several options. Can you walk, or take a bus? Or you could ride your road bike slowly so...
