    Not sure why you think a pannier "completes the package". Go to a college campus - no one is carrying around a pannier. If you leave it on the bike it would get stolen, if you take it with you it's a...

    If you watch bikes for a while, it seems like it's the same pattern over and over again:

    Yeah, they're both very good bikes, and you get similar features at a similar price level for either one. #1 thing should be to buy the right size bike, after that buy whatever feels the best,...

    It's fine. Biggest problem with a college bike is theft. You need at least a ulock (not a cable lock) to go with it.

    Unfortunately, I haven't seen much either.

    I own both mountain (time atac) and road (speedplay's) pedals and shoes, and I never use my road shoes. To be fair here, this has a lot to do with that I could not find road shoes that did not leave...

    I assume by $150 headphones, the OP is referring to the JayBird BlueBuds X's.

    I personally also tried to find cheaper bluetooth headphones, but the Plantronics model wouldn't stay in my ear (and...

    You can get what you want, but I've used the clipless/flat pedal combos and I really, really don't like them. Clipless is already only a marginal improvement in speed at best vs decent flats +...

    Wow, that is one unbikeable stretch. For me, I just won't do it. I'll sometimes jump on a sidewalk for a couple of blocks in order to clear a bad stretch, or even walk my bike, but for that kind of...
