    It gets easier! Good for you. Do it as often as you like. You will probably get tougher with weather. At least I did. You will definitely get stronger. Chances are, you won't consider your hills to...

    Right. I'm not happy with o-rings, but zip ties stay secure for years.

    While we're on the subject of dynamos, I've recently put antique sidewall dynamos on several bikes and connected them to modern fancy LED lights. The setup works great. It costs less and weighs less,...

    Yes!

    I have an English 3-speed, and I don't ride it often, but I love how I can jump on it and go. Same with the Citibike bike share bikes here in New York.

    I use the TuneIn app on my iphone and bluetooth headphones. I usually put just one earpiece on so I can hear traffic.

    Streaming radio this way puts a noticeable drain on the battery, so I don't do...

    I am surprised it worked. Does that make you feel better?

    I think ego stroking is a good cause, so that's what I'm here for.

    rhm intuited that my S3X is probably a 5-speed hub with a few differences to make it fixed, and the consequence is that it's only a 3-speed.

    I can sometimes feel my Sanyo on my Bianchi Volpe, usually at high speed. It's a vibration. I can't detect that it is slowing me down.

    Cute picture. I wouldn't worry if I were you. I'm 5'9-1/2" and 166 lbs, i.e. a little bigger than you, so you should have a little less to worry about than I do.
