    Summer in San Francisco means I typically have a 15-25 MPH headwind on part of my way home. On parts of the ride, like over the Golden Gate Bridge, this wind is often a sidewind, which I almost hate...

    Bummer you can't bring your bike it, but nice that they are offering lockers at least.

    Could you use a second lock in addition to your own in the locker to make it a less attractive/easy theft...

    Oh, don't worry, I don't think I have ever paid full price for any of the Gore gear I have gotten, and never brought direct from Gore. Most of my stuff I got on close out somewhere, including my...

    Thanks wolfchild and tsl - I guess the only real thing to consider is aesthetics of a machined side wall for rim brakes or not as long as I have the right hub. I was aware of the 2 types of disk...

    Yea, I remember this from their website when I looked many months ago. So what I really want to know is what is the inside width, as this is what you are supposed to use to determine what size tires...

    I often commute with a cycling-specific vest in cool-ish or windy weather. These are not the hardware store/constructions style safety vest, the ones I have looked at don't fit well. THe cycling...

    Fair enough, if you plan to be back in the day light then skip the lights. I sometimes take mine off if doing a weekend day ride. If you plan to ride in the dark though, invest a bit in a light that...

    Another vote for the Light and Motion VIS 360+. I got this for last winter and it was great. Have had it off my helmet recently, but might put it back on for increasing visibility to cars.

    Unless you really want a flat bar bike, I would consider a gravel grinder, adventure tourer, touring bike, or even a cyclocross bike. Some "endurance" or comfort road bikes as mentioned by PaulRivers...

    Re Shoes/Shoe Covers:

    I don't like the idea of waterproof shoes in this case. Water will still run down your leg, soak your sock and get into your shoe that way. I also question breathability so I...

    Spend a few hours checking out some shops in SOMA and you will get to try a number of bikes in relatively close proximity. Many of them are larger than Citizen Chain will be.

    I will second the Wahoo RFLKT+ if you use cyclometer or the Wahoo app as it lets you create a bunch of custom screens to your liking. The Wahoo sensors have been very reliable for me too.
