    Don't think it was the helmet. Lightening travels the path of least resistance. Riding in a lightning storm, my guess it was most likely the air in the guy's head that was the path.

    Here is the cockpit on my Troll. Lots of hand positions. I can ride this bike all day on or offroad, using 26" wheels or 700c. It's a great all around bike, mostly used for commuting and touring....

    No rational person would waste their time studying whether lights help you see and be seen and increase safety. Nor would they study whether water is wet. It's obvious.

    I stretch while riding during long rides, and more frequently the longer the ride. Commuting, never.

    Sorry, but I have no idea what you are trying to say here.

    In my case, I need lights to see and be seen. Pitch black MUPs are almost impossible to ride at any speed without lights. You may or...

    Bike commuting certainly takes extra effort and time, but so does exercising. Why not do both at the same time, avoid the stress of traffic and spending money on gas? You'll live longer and have a...

    Just have your wife dutifully follow you around, and when you need to tell her what to do, slow down a bit.

    Sorry, couldn't resist.:)

    Bike commuters are pragmatic, late adopters, not looking for small improvements that have no perceived benefit, and generally not big spenders. No real advantage to 650B vs 26"/700C, so not...

    I have no problem if you want to run a camera on your bike. At a minimum, it employs someone somewhere in the world making tiny electronics. However, there are so many things that have to go right...

    I thought we were talking about bibs, and not racing kit. So yes, you have to wear a jersey over the bibs. Well, you don't HAVE to, but please do.

    I use PI bibs, so I guess I'm cheap. The bib uppers are mesh, but shorts are still a little better for high temps and high humidity.

    Bibs are great for all weather except when it's really hot. The extra layer reduces cooling. You can still wear them just as shorts without putting the straps over your shoulders for better...

    Yeah, that's a good one. Try the Custis Trail from Key Bridge. Most routes out of the Potomac River valley upstream of the city have a decent climb. Once you are in the tidal plain downstream,...

    There is a narrow crowded sidewalk, not for riding a bike. I could walk there, but no desire to.
