    I use Cyclemeter on my iPhone. Before my commute, I just turn it on, select my saved route, and put the phone in my bag. When I'm done, it shows me my ride stats and how it compares to other rides...

    I've been wondering the same thing, as I'm interested in a Surly Pacer except that it doesn't have rear braze-ons for a rack. Surly's response was that if they added them they'd basically have a...

    Since reading Sheldon a few months ago I made the switch to primarily braking with the front. I rarely use the rear brake anymore, except when I need to stop really quickly.

    What swayed you toward the Casseroll over the Clubman? I've had my eye on the Clubman recently, but I probably won't be buying anything until next year.

    I started a similar discussion over on the hybrid section a few weeks ago. I haven't done anything about it yet, but I'm leaning towards replacing my suspension fork with a good steel one (like the...

    I have my eye on a Clubman for next year (I love the new green), so I've been reading quite a bit about it lately. I believe that I saw that the max tire size is 32 without fenders and 28 with...

    Well golly, I just bought one of these bars at full price a couple of weeks ago. At least I like it and am happy with it.

    I recently bought a 54 cm Redline 925. I'm about 5'10". If you want a "regular" fit, you might want to look at the 56 cm version. Of course, replacing the stock 90 mm stem with a 120 on the 54 cm may...

    I'm still working up the nerve to try my new single-speed on my 13-mile commute. This bike looks great!

    I wrote to Surly last week with some unsolicited advice to add some rear rack braze-ons to the Pacer and their response was that if you add all of this to the Pacer then you end up with a Cross...

    For what it's worth, the Pacer frame doesn't have rack braze-ons in either the front or the back. I'd love to use one as a commuting bike if I could just more easily put a rack on the back.

    I just added Nashbar 440 TT bars to my bike and they're great. The drop isn't too dramatic. If you don't want something that wide, they also have 420 and 400 versions. For $15, you can afford to try...

    I'm commuting in the Boston suburbs, as well, on a hybrid bike. I really like my bike for my commute, but if I had to buy a new one I'd probably look at a road bike and get some solid...

    As far as I can tell, my fork doesn't have a lock-out. If it did, that would be perfect for what I need. Hmm...that new fork is looking mighty appealing.

    Suspension vs. Carbon fork

    I have a Specialized Crossroads that I've recently started to ride a couple of days a week as a commuter. My commute is about 13 miles each way with a few decent hills and inclines. 95% of the ride...

    I do my 13-mile commute on my own at about 14 mph, but when I'm riding with some more experienced cycling friends I get my average up to about 16 mph! It's good to have someone there to push you.

    Here's my hybrid that I've been using to commute for the past few weeks. I just added the bar ends and new saddle tonight. I'm looking forward to trying them both out tomorrow morning.

    I just got a Redline 925 at Simple Living for about $325. The website says that they're closeouts on the '09s, but mine was a '10 for the same price. I would've preferred the green '09, but I got the...

    I did end up getting my 925 at Simple Living. I must've been lucky - everything was tight and in great shape. I love the bike. It's great to have a steel single-speed for going around town.

    It may be because of the Japanese market. The number 4 is bad luck in Japan, so many manufacturers avoid product numbers with 4 in it if they're sold in Japan. I don't know for sure that these bikes...
