    My commute is 30 miles each way, as others have said I split it up-I ride in one day, take the bus home and then ride home the next day. On Fridays I generally go both ways. Its much more pleasant...

    I strava all my rides as I too like to track the miles-a friend who follows me saw what I was doing and started commuting himself! My commute has 7 or 8 segments on it and I enjoy working my time...

    Thanks squeeze, I think I will pick up a couple, not for riding though because I am a member of the skin tight aero gang (to my co-workers dismay!).

    Kids are grown, only one still at home-wife does yoga after work, so family is all good! I couldn't have taken this much time (or I would have had to ride faster!) when the kids were younger and had...

    Its still a bit cold in the morning so I am using arm and leg warmers; since I'm only riding one way at a time just now, I just take my damp clothes home. When things warm up (and I get a few more...

    Thanks FB, I have 4 pullers including sugino and none retract far enough to thread into the crank arm. I'll check with my LBS. By the way, this isn't a cartidge is it? I'm assuming I can just...

    Sugino Alp crank removal

    Bought an 85 Centurion Elite RS, cleaning everything but can't figure out how to remove this square taper crank. The cranks are held on by a nut on a screw that protrudes out from the spindle-I'm...

    Thanks for all the input, I'm going to give the nine speed a shot, but bike needs some work before it is rideable. I'll report back.

    Kimmo, I assumed your bike was a work in progress given the lack of rear brake, extreme seat angle and what I thought was a primered fork; after reading your description on velospace, I now know...

    Updating a 1983(?) centurion elite rs

    I am buying what I think is a stock 1983 Centurion Elite RS to use as a commuter. The six speed back wheel is very heavy, and my 9 speed freehub wheel fits easily in the dropouts. Since the...

    yes, sweat is my issue. I can average 17-18 MPH on this route, but I haven't done it with a lot of traffic so I am over-estimating my ride time until I get comfortable. Only one hill of any...

    Thanks for the suggestions. My cube is small, quarters close-I'd have complaints if I hung them up. You guys are right, they will be wet 5 minutes into the ride home anyway so probably best to just...
