    I don't own a front rack and pannier set (spendy), but when I've ridden them I've really liked how they help balance the load and keep the weight low.

    Yeah, it's the wickable thing. You don't have to spend a ton, but cotton and poly aren't great for long rides, so if you do wear them, bust out the baby powda.

    I've ridden in Vibrams -- there are two basic issues. The first is that your toe is farther out than in regular style shoes, so you can catch it on stuff. The second is that the pedal teeth bite...

    I just wanted to third this -- get a cheap bike to get to know how you and your body like to cycle, then buy an expensive one once you know what you like.

    I actually changed how I rode for a couple years after my one serious accident, where I went OTB. I rode nothing but cruisers for about a year and a half, until I started wanting to ride mountain...

    I used to work for a bike charity, and the thing about those Kulanas is that once they start to fall apart, they just don't stop. My suggestion is to cut your losses and harvest for parts.

    I agree that cyclists can make all manner of terrible errors, but that's not why we're hated. We are hated because we are happy and exercising and can find parking and aren't spending an infinite...

    This can be resolved with a simple thought experiment -- if bicyclists did religiously obey the rules of the road at all times, would they be much less hated by the cagers?

    Because they're short production run bicycles without a drivetrain? I mean, a good bike frame is $400. Add wheels, and there you go.
