    The fair weather summer commuters are out in full force and the commuter MUP is busy around here. At quitting time there is actual traffic leaving town! I love to see it.

    Over my years I have come to to conclusion that I don't like to carry weight on my back if I can help it. Some bikes I ride don't have racks so I will. And I will use a camel bak for hydration on...

    If you don't know what you like then call around to your local bike shops and find out if they have fleets of test saddles. The better shops do. Go talk to them narrow it down and test a few.

    Anonymous drafting is never acceptable. Period. In my mind it's the same as stealing. I don't want to do the work for you and just because it's there doesn't mean you can take it.

    It's entry level. And since it's new you get to eat the immediate depreciation. I have no idea if it's a good price or not. But If you are going to ride it every day it might not be as rugged or...

    +1 - My Carradice Nelson long flap is spot on for commuting and long gravel rides. I did a few hacks to make it QR on and off and use a bagman seat hanger rack. I like it a lot more than my panniers...

    A. it's a crappy decision to have to make. Look at other comparable bikes as others have suggested. That's my best advice.

    They do it all the time around here too. A year after they replace the asphalt they do chip and seal as evidently it prolongs the life of the road surface.

    Back in the mid 80's my first MTB was an 820. I loved it. Steel, long top tube, feel in love with Mountain biking on that bike.
