    I use a 1990 Trek 7000 MTB as a commuter and it is great. I've completely rebuilt it at this point, but even in the raw state I found it in it was a fun ride. Whether the rebuild was worth it is...

    I ride a 10 years old road bike as my "new" ride. It still rides like new with silent precise Campy shifting, true wheels, good braking. The only problem I've had is with the crank bolt loosening. ...

    I rode my geared Kuota but the woman I was with was riding a single speed. She had no trouble riding that although she did admit at the end she was pretty beat up by the hills. I wouldn't have...

    Harris Cyclery, the sponsor of the Sheldon Brown website, also carries them. I think Peter White is the importer and Harris still goes through him. I ordered from Harris (the Cyo Premium, not the...

    And I suggest getting a cheap one. GoPro is overpriced, the others are also. The cheap ones take video that is just as good, even if they don't have all the bells and whistles. I paid $90 for mine...

    It wasn't that bad. I had a good time on this ride, even if it took almost 10 hours. There are a lot of stops along the way, you are on city streets so you should expect traffic.

    Or maybe not. I did a longish ride today on my commuter, much longer than I normally would at about 35 mile, and I was pretty tired at the end. I think I can keep up on that bike, but there were...
