    How long does it take you for the cans to dry up?
    I had the same thought as estanyc (box of 100 patches, vulcanizing fluid/rubber cement from auto parts store).

    It's been about 4 years and the...

    It depends on the expected trip method. I think in the midwest driving is most common, so people assume you're going to drive. In NYC, this may not be the case, so people will often tell you how...

    So if it's personal experience it's speculation and doesn't validate the point; if it's other people's experience it's conjuring from internet bloggers and doesn't mean anything.

    End of discussion.

    Insurance company and police are my personal experience.

    Kickstart,

    Your Robin Hood is far nicer than my old Robin Hood was.
    Did it come with the chain case, or did you add it?
    Is that a pump or a battery case on the top tube?

    I'm missing something here.
    (1) if you work 5 days per week and have 2 weeks vacation, 1,000 miles per year is only 2 miles each way. Most bicyclists can do this in 10 minutes, and it's probably...

    OP, Joeyduck,

    You'll know local traffic patterns and laws better than we will, but I would use the right lane to avoid right turning motorists (as you are), and don't worry about motorists that...

    My understanding when I lived in Maryland 20 years ago is that bicyclists were not allowed to ride in the lane on roads with speed limits over 50mph (i.e. 55mph or higher), while if the speed limit...

    Are your roads radically different from my roads, or is it "not such a bad thing" if bicycling is restricted to recreation?

    In the Eastern states I've bicycled in (PA, DE, MD, VA), if bicyclists...

    What is the point to leaving the pump home? Are you afraid it will be stolen when you leave your bicycle? Do you keep it on other bicycles and don't want to move it?

    Technically, you're not forced to drive when bicycling you're just restricted to local roads and not allowed on state roads. You can ride your bike, you just can't go anywhere motorists want to...

    You have a good list for an American commute; my suspicion is that since these bikes aren't popular here you may have to make minor changes or give up a feature or two. The Dutch bikes I've seen...

    (1) Rack design
    I strongly prefer racks where the brace is extended in the back; many have small triangles to be light and cheap, but most bags will flex and periodically get caught in teh spokes. ...

    I'm also curious about the OP's intent - why would you ask about being hassled instead of trying to avoid collisions? but can offer several comments.
