    1,000 miles is a disappointment! That's not typical, is it? What might cause premature wear?

    I'm obsessive with weighing and measuring. If I keep it up, I'll have a spreadsheet with the weights of all my components and accessories.

    Ooh, nice.

    I recommend not changing anything until you've ridden it a fair bit. You'll know what, if anything, you want to change.

    Mental note: add a master link to my tool bag. Chain breakage used to be rare. Not any more. :(

    I don't think so. A longer crank can reduce the force requires by a little (though not necessarily the fraction of the length difference, since the lever has so many joints). But if you're pressing a...

    I imagine you can't draft on a bakfiets. Is that right?

    I've never seen anyone drafting on my path, the Hudson River Greenway. It runs along the western edge of Manhattan, and it's heavily used,...

    I think you are both right, paradoxically, bubbagrannygear and Robert C. I do get caught up in the game, even when I get on the bike with no (conscious) intention to compete. It just like an...

    Yes, I think so. A power rating on appliance, such as a light, is a minimum requirement. A 10 watt LED wants 10 watts to operate properly. If the power supply can provide more, the appliance won't...

    And, to be fair, they were probably commuting home after a day's work, and I was not. They were going faster than everyone else except for me. In a way, it was odd to see them go as slowly as they...

    I think it will be a problem. Get a dynamo that puts out at least the required power. Most headlights require 2.4 watts and tail lights 0.6 watts, and most dynamos are rated at 3 watts.

    My favorite, by far, is the Panaracer Pasela. They come in many sizes. They're pretty light, and they have a plush-yet-fast feel. I also like the whoosh sound they make.

    I really wasn't showing off!

    I passed two serious looking roadies on the bike path today. They were going pretty hard, but frankly not fast enough for me. I was running late. I was not pushing myself all that hard.

    Sometimes...

    I think keeping the stem shifters and kickstand is a good idea. I actually like those shifters.

    Yes, I'm more interested in fatigue than power. I doubt length affects power in any appreciable way.

    Thanks for the endorsement. I expect it to work well. I've heard good things about the FD! I had one before briefly, and it was good.

    Vertyk, if you didn't learn how to adjust an AW hub so it stays, it doesn't mean it's hard. It's a rock-reliable hub.
