    Were you riding the far right edge of the lane? If so that's why you were buzzed and she didn't see you. Motorists simply do not pay attention to things along the sides of the road.

    When the heat index is nearly 110 degrees because of humidity, anything baggy just sucks. That and you also tend to get a big@$$ wet spot on your crotch that looks like you wet your pants.

    I use RaceBlades on my commuter road bike and like them, though I wish I could fit full coverage fenders to keep the gunk off the rear brake and seat tube. But they do a pretty good job of keeping...

    Anyone tried bibs for commuting?

    Specifically, longer commutes, I'm talking over 10 miles each way, more like 15-20 each way.
