    Hi everyone,
    Thanks for the replies. Safety pins are an interesting option for fastening a light to my fishnet vest. Might zip ties work too?

    Thanks everyone for the replies. I have a light on my helmet and on my rear rack. I usually ride with a knapsack on the rear rack that obscures the rear light.

    Hi,
    I want to refresh the thread. What model 9 speed shifter would be designed for touring/commuting purposes on my Surly LHT? (I do not want something designed for racing). Thanks!

    Hi HillRider,
    Thanks for the response. What model would be most typically used on a Surly LHT that does heavy commuting on hills, under load, and will eventually tour?

    Park Tools PCS-10 vs PCS-9

    Hi everybody,

    Hi,
