    For me personally, the perfect commute distance...

    For me personally, the perfect commute distance is 5.2 miles, because that's precisely my commute, and riding my bike beats driving a car that distance any day. Therefore, my generally answer to the...
  2. This is what I do. I get the performance tires...

    This is what I do. I get the performance tires with Kevlar and then add the Mr. Tuffy liner. The only flat I've had running this was caused by running over who knows what, but it gashed a giant...

    I've sold bikes of similar vintage/quality for that much here in PDX, but people are crazy here too. No way I'd spend that much on one.
  4. Good job! I've got two vehicles, but now that I...

    Good job! I've got two vehicles, but now that I (hopefully) have my knee issues figured out, I'm back to bike commuting 100% of the time. Part of me is really tempted to get rid of my commuter car,...

    Steel road bikes from the 80's are the bomb. It will make a great commuter. Personally I wouldn't get rid of the drops unless you have to, but you should be able to do some kind of a conversion. I...

    I love the zero decal look. That's a sweet little bike for the price.
  8. Question for owners of Harbor Freight ultrasonic cleaner

    I have searched through the forums and not found an answer to my question.

    I just picked one up yesterday and noticed while reading the reviews that one person suggested sealing the gap between...

    I know this thread is really old, but I just bumped into the veloglide system while researching bike storage on this site. Did you ever build it? I'd love to hear how.

    Yes, I believe the advantage of the velo grip design is being able to angle them against the wall. This appeals to me because my garage is narrow enough that I don't want things sticking out very...
  11. Which storage solution should I use in my garage?

    So I recently completely gutted my garage and undertook to repair all of the drywall, paint it and get rid of the clutter (not to mention the 4 million nails the previous owners pounded into every...

    It can be fun to compete with segments, but I mostly commute so I'm not going to beat some guy in spandex on his carbon fiber bike whose riding that segment just to get the top time. It's just an...

    Cyclemeter sounds cool. Are any of you familiar with the app Tasker? You can set it up to automate all kinds of cool tasks. I wonder if I could set it up when using an app like Strava, to do what...

    Strava instead of computer

    Do any of you commuters use Strava? I don't have a computer on my new summer bike build, so I've gotten into using Strava since I was introduced to it by a friend. It does a great job of tracking...

    I sometimes eat right before I leave, sometimes I eat at work. Depends on how much of a hurry I'm in. Sometimes on days like today that are busy right off the bat, I bring something for breakfast,...

    I'm just feeling grateful that my knees have been holding up to commuting. I took an entire year off (can you imagine not being able to ride your bike for a year?). It was horrible. For the last...

    5.1 miles each way, unless the MUP floods, then I've got to find another way around. You guys that commute relatively long distances, every day, year round are a real inspiration to me.

    I started browsing the forums back in 2005 when I really got interested in bikes and in working on them. I'd been riding my whole life before then, but never started paying close attention to...

    Nashbar.com sells some reasonably priced panniers that I have used for a number of years. Make sure you get a rack that has the extra rear extension to keep larger bags out of your spokes.

    Both of your links are to the same bike. If it was me, I'd steer clear of the old gaspipe bikes. The safety (turkey) levers, stem shifters, lack of lugs, etc. all point to this being a bike not...

    I've been cutting my own hair since college when I couldn't afford to pay anyone and my mom wasn't around to cut it anymore. I have a pointy head and look terrible with a buzz or I would do that. I...

    I grew up using friction shifters, and up until a few years ago, all of my adult era bikes were friction as well. With that being said, I don't think I would trade in my computer with 105 brifters....

    I use the panniers nashbar makes for smaller trips, but with four kids, I repurpose the kid's bike trailer if I'm doing the grocery shopping for the whole week.

    Is it bad that I'm glad I live in the suburbs of Portland, where there are fewer hipsters and less traffic?
