    No way it fits in a pannier, at least not in its current case.

    I have seen backpack-style gig bags, but I'm pretty sure it would hit my head while riding. I've thought about strapping it to the...

    Hauling a trombone?

    My tuba friend who rides everywhere is making me extremely jealous.

    What solutions exist for transporting a trombone? Standard trailers seem too short, and the trombone is way too long for my rear...

    You mean when the other driver is coming from the side? I don't watch eyes at all. I watch their front wheels. If they start moving, I'll slow and move away from them, covering the brakes. I try to...

    Since this is Commuting and not A&S... ;)

    Cyclist was totally in the wrong. Needs reflective clothing, a better rear light and some way of signaling lane changes in the dark.

    With that said,...

    Yes, 29er = 700c. They're both ISO 622.

    Sounds like it's time to find a new bike shop.

    We have some in my area, and having been a committee member for Parks & Rec, I can say that they are a legal requirement whenever a MUP crosses a road.

    But if you're annoying peds by riding...

    @Leiseturm: I think you're reading way too into the OP's post. Someone locked a bike to his with no apparent care (pedals through the spokes, cable looped through brakes, etc.). I'd be stranded, as I...

    If it's a MUP, not much you can do. If it really is a bike lane, I would angrily grumble "get out of the bike lane" as I passed.

    If it's a real problem, slowing down bike traffic, then contact the...

    Inflated the tires up to 100psi this morning instead of the usual 85. It may have been an undetectable tailwind, but I felt a lot faster. I had been trying to follow the 15% drop chart, but this...

    Agreed with the slick tires recommendation. Going from hybrid tires to slicks boosted my average speed by 1-2mph. You'll also get faster over time naturally as you get better conditioned to riding.

    Yikes! That's why I am super careful when other drivers yield right-of-way to me. Glad that you didn't end up on their windshield.

    *sigh* Bing has had this for roughly 5 years. Their coverage stinks compared to Google.

    I do use Bing for searching though. Bing Rewards has paid for several items I've purchased on Amazon.

    That looks to be about 22 miles each way. Is there another mode of public transit to which you could ride? 44 miles a day would be too much for me. That would mean almost 4 hours commuting.

    ^ Agreed, but your ears don't work with electric cars. I've been surprised by a Prius more than once. Buses are bad too, since their engines are in the rear. The bus is next to me before I hear it.
