    Looks nice, but they got the colors inverted - should be neon green on the outside.

    Ah, got it, thanks. I was interpreting it as you had to be voted in just to be a rank and file member; I'd forgotten that deacons, elders and such were elected. We had that in our church too when I...

    Pardon my ignorance, but I have to ask: what religion (or denomination) requires being voted in by the congregation in order to be a member?

    I use a helmet mirror now, and have used bar end mirrors in the past, but I still always do a head turn before moving into a lane.

    My workplace installed one a couple of years ago, with built-in pump. I haven't had occasion to use it, nor have I seen it used. I carry spares and tools for roadside repairs, but still I suppose...

    You could combine your two possible solutions - take the alternate route AND change the time to avoid the school rush. Any chance your employer would let you modify your work schedule to accommodate...

    yea, I suppose that's possible, thanks for the clarification. But I think it would be less hassle to just detach the cable than to try to work on a wheel that is still tethered to the bike - like I...

    The belt itself doesn't make wheel removal any more difficult than with a chain. But most belt-drive bikes use an IGH on the rear wheel (unless it's a single speed bike). This means that when you...

    The original statement about camping is about the most ridiculous bit of twisted logic I've ever heard. The same would apply to extending it to bike commuting. It's not worth thinking about. Just...

    An iPhone isn't required, never has been. True there is an app for that, but it's not the only (nor the best) way to check belt tension. Gates makes a Krikit tension gauge for their belts that can be...

    The other thing that occurred to me, it seems it would be pretty simple to integrate it with a couple of turn signal blinkies on the rear of your bike. Automated turn signals that you don't even have...

    It's clever, definitely more usable than trying to read a map on your phone screen while riding. If many of my rides occurred in unfamiliar areas I'd be all over it. But most of my riding takes place...

    yes

    Lots of rainy days here in the PNW so yes, I ride in it. My workplace does have a nice locker/shower room, so that helps. I agree with some others here, it's enjoyable to ride in the rain.
