    My wife has a Breezer Uptown 8 and has ridden it for about 4 years. I have ridden it a lot as well. It's actually very cushy - do not let the "aluminum is harsh" crowd convince you on this. Her bike...

    Check out rock climbing pants. I have two pairs of "boulder shorts" by Kuhl. REI and other outdoor stores sell these. Gusseted crotch, few seams. I love mine.

    I would also look at Breezer. My wife has one with a Nexus internal hub. It came with racks (good ones), a generator hub, front and rear lights, and a chain guard. Not belt driven, but a good bike...

    I leave a U-lock and cable on the rack in my parking ramp and so do most other regular bike commuters. I think it's a slamming good idea. The only problem is if you want to stop on the way home and...

    Leading the Bike/Walk week event at my office and coaching several people to give it a try. It was very rewarding to coach some new-comers to commuting. They all had fun and nobody regrets it.
