  1. Just Completed The Last Segment Of My CT Coast Conquest!

    This little bugger of a ride has been tucked away in my plan book for several years. With a free Saturday this weekend, I made a very last minute decision to get it off my bucket list.

    I've got to look into that. The one thing I miss when playing hours and hours of mp3's on the bike is a connection with the real world. A warm, comforting voice after every few songs, plus weather...

    We've all gotta chill out. When you "gas it" just to get ahead - or stay ahead - of someone else, all you're doing is buying yourself less time on the bike than he or she is going to have. So who's...

    I think what you're saying is that music has become just another throwaway to many people and that some of the responses here might be from readers who don't put as much value on a music collection...

    I switched from portable radios to mp3 players because I could never get any radio to hold a station while moving on my bike. Is this one THAT much better than any other? I don't see any reviews...

    All kidding aside, I really just want a place with a cheap hotel ($125 or less) that will let me bring my bike in the room. The few decent hotels in Greenport are booked, and I wouldn't even know...

    What about Greenport? Would that count? I've ridden the north shore from Manhattan to Port Jefferson. What if I finish it off and do Pt. Jeff to Greenport or Orient? Would you people all love me...

    I don't WANT to hear somebody else's music. I want to listen to MY collection, which is loaded with gems from the past 100 years, including out of print records and demos that I played on during the...

    I am a former mountain biker who has adapted my bike to road riding by adding "slick" tires, a rear rack, and a Mountain Mirrycle handlebar mirror as boomhauer described above. I love the stability...

    I don't generally use it in the rain (I only work a few miles from home, so driving in on a rainy day is no big punch to the environment or to my wallet), so the thin wooden board will probably be...

    It's not so much Apple's actions, but the general trend in the computer industry away from personalized storage that worries me. It may have to do with anticipated shortages of minerals and other...

    The Ortliebs (and other brands I tried) were all just giant sacks with no compartments. I hate when my stuff gets lost in a big bag like that. I want organization and the Schwinn rack trunk...
