    A friend of mine uses his iPhone and Runkeeper. I think you have to be an "elite" runkeeper member to do it though, so it costs a yearly fee.

    If you want to wear something to your place of employment that makes you look like an overstuffed sausage, feel free. But the argument that you NEED to wear spandex to commute is laughable. And...

    I am the opposite. My commute is only ten miles each way, and nobody at my work needs to see me in spandex.

    You can do what you want to do, but I have been complimented by many of the nurses I...

    While not completely "slick," my Marathon's (700x35) were great on about 60 miles of gravel roads with a loaded Surly LHT when I biked up to my cabin this summer.

    You are overreacting. I often have to move my lock when I get to work. I park in a locked, fenced-in bike cage. I've never even thought about being bothered by someone putting their bike where my...

    I have them on a MTB I converted to a SS for winter commuting and bad weather commuting, so I don't know about the grip shifters. That said, they are standard MTB sized handlebars before taping, so...

    I just picked up the Nashbar trekking bar and put it on one of my bikes this weekend. 18 dollars seemed like a cheap way to try a position that is more upright with less reach. Maybe you could try...

    I threw some cheap Nashbar trekking bars on my SS mtb commuter. It raised my bars up a little, and decreased the reach just a little. I am much more comfortable now than I was previously. For 24...

    I have the Nashbar SS 29er. While I like riding it on the trails around here in MN, I prefer my 26" 1991 Diamondback Ascent (converted to a SS) with trekking bars from Nashbar for commuting. Plus,...

    I have been using the Nashbar SS 29er for actual trail riding. It is well worth what I paid for it (370 bucks shipped this Spring). It would make a great commuter with a smaller gear in back.

    Sounds to me like you would be better off converting an early 1990's mountain bike to a SS and rolling with that. I love my 1991 Diamondback Ascent commuter. 26" wheels and all.

    Situational awareness and avoidance are the keys. Once that fails, it's up to you to do what you have to do with what you have at hand.

    Just remember, when the defecation hits the oscillation,...

    Don't confuse the two stories in this thread. The cyclist that got shot is the one who ran into the side of the truck. As in he hit the truck, the truck didn't hit him.

    That super rear bike pannier is what I got for 104 bucks shipped. They are sweet. Best of both worlds in that you get waterproof roll-top bags with some pockets on the outside and a mesh bag that...

    Sounds like a great trip. I just did Minneapolis to Big Pine Lake (Central Minnesota) myself. I usually end up backpacking if I am on the North Shore.
