    They make them now more like drybags, with roll-tops which makes them less convenient for commuting IMHO. So yeah, these older ones are the perfect size for commuting. The Champlains are larger and...

    These are Axiom Lasalle panniers, the Journey series, designed to be the front panniers while the larger Champlain were meant to be the rear set. They're both discontinued.

    I really think it depends on the area/city. New York, Portland and other places where lots of people ride probably don't exhibit this as much. And as far as commercial are considered: yeah, most are...

    It's a Topeak Tour Guide bag. Yes, it does get in the way of the light but not by much. It's already mounted low with a Thorn accessory bar. I may try lowering it even further. I tried mounting the...

    I used to keep my bikes in my room but I was growing tired of the related mess, I want to have a "quieter" room without all the visual noise. But I was living on the ground floor so I would just roll...

    That doesn't offend me at all. It's just human stupidity. But I guess it may be more prevalent in other locations. In large cities where lots of people ride I think this is less of a problem,...

    You're looking at it the wrong way: it's not about putting on body armor to protect yourself from harm but about making changes to your riding to avoid this harm from coming to you again. Think...

    Bike commuting or camping is offensive to poor people? This is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard. This is so stupid that I don't even know how to respond to this other than with a...

    If drivers complain about your light being too bright that means it's working as planned. I couldn't care less either if it annoys anybody. No week passes by without several pedestrians and cyclists...

    I just tend to err on the side of caution, sometimes perhaps too much. But for me getting to work 10 minutes later is a fair tradeoff for some extra safety. And yeah, definitely, my Roubaix doesn't...

    It depends on the commute too. I pass two metal bridges (one is a draw bridge) with unprotected gaps, some run alongside, they can swallow a 32 tire. I'd be afraid to ride on a road bike. All it...

    To me it's "crazy" to sit in the traffic on the way to work. But that seems what the majority thinks of as "normal" so go figure.
