    I had not heard of this. It definitely looks like something I should check out, if my bike gets here on time.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone.

    I do like the cream color tires on the Guv'nor, but I read they only stay that way for about 50 ft. The only other concern that I had is South Florida has a...

    I still love my 2011 soho dlx! I have over 3,000 miles on it. I have had to change a couple of flats. I don't think it is a big deal if you have all the right tools. I could probably do it in 15...

    Too funny, it seems to be a Florida thing (on shore and off shore flow). I get the same thing everyday in Fort Lauderdale. I repeat to myself, that which doesn't kill me, only makes me stronger...

    I can't speak to the Office Bag, but I have the Downtown and love it. It is easy to take on and off. It is very water resistant. I keep all my stuff in it, and on the days I have to drive, I carry...

    I actually had my first flat this morning. It took about 25 minutes to change. To me, it seemed pretty straight forward. I did not have to re-tension the belt. Since having done it once, i think I...

    I love mine for commuting. It rains every day here this time of year. It has made my maintenance so much easier. I have put 2,000 miles on it already this year.

    I sprung for the GT Ruckus DX. I have been keeping my eye out for a decent priced mountain bike. I love it so far. My wife is now wondering when I will be building ramps in the back yard ; )

    I put about 14,000 miles on the 4300 disc I had and it never gave me a problem other than an occasional flat. It is a bit heavy, but about the same weight as the SOHO DLX I am riding now. I...

    I love mine. I bought it in November of last year. I ride it most every day. I have 1,100 miles on it and haven't looked back. When it rains, I just hose it off and it looks like new again. So far, I...

    I have been commuting on my 2011 soho dlx since December. So far I love it. My commute is 7.5 miles each way. Florida is flat as a pancake, so not much in the way of hills. So far, it has been pretty...

    Mine seems to be centered very close to exact. I have a pretty good eye and if it is off, I can't see it.

    I don't have a lot of reference points regarding disc breaks. The only other disc brakes that I have used were on my Trek 4300 and they were also mechanical. I would say they are as good, or...

    2011 Soho DLX Arrived

    I picked up my 2011 Soho DLX the other day. I have only gotten to ride it once so far, but it seemed a very nice ride. The disc brake seems to work fine, it had plenty of stopping power. It is...

    The elevation of South Florida never rises above 40 ft. That being said, we have a headwind down here regardless of what direction you are traveling in. I am pretty convinced I could ride in...

    I ordered a 2011 SOHO DLX and am anxiously awaiting it. They told me mid-December, but I am really hoping that I will get it sooner. I actually went in to get a District, District (I love the look...

    I am about 12.5 miles each way. My time really varies depending on the wind. My best time is 52 minutes and my worst is slightly over an hour. I am riding a modified Trek 4300 that comes in at...

    I hear a lot of comments about how "dangerous" riding a bike is. Nobody ever comments on how "dangerous" being obese can be. It is not even news-worthy anymore. Yet, someone always shoves an...

    I was astounded that the average American only rides their bike 24 miles a year. I do 25 miles in a single day. I find it interesting that people don't seem to make the connection between being...

    Article on Commuting and Obesity

    I mostly lurk here, but I came across an interesting article on active transportation. It gave a pretty good plug to bicycle commuting. I get tired of people always asking why I ride my bicycle to...

    My ride is from I-95 and Oakland Park to Sunrise and Panther Parkway. Going down Oakland Park is like a war zone. Bombed out sidewalks, crazy drivers, and the typical headwind every evening on the...
