    6.3 miles isn't enough extra mileage for me to choose the 5.8 mile major artery. I'd rather do that extra half mile and be safe. I might go with the fire road depending on how rough it is and what...

    Congratulations! As others have said, there's no shame in taking days off while you build up strength and stamina. I started commuting just over a year ago. It took a few weeks before I rode five...

    Absolutely. Now that I have one bike with a dyno hub, I'm convinced that I'll never buy another bike without one (or without adding one right away).

    To the OP: My daily commuter is a steel...

    I'll weigh in on your second question. I use a Shimano Nexus 8 and love it. I have found the ability to change gears when not pedaling really helpful. My commute involves a lot of stop and go...

    Okay, good. So it's not a weight issue. I ride mine an hour a day (30 min. each way) four days a week, so that's pretty close to your experience.

    interesting. Thanks for the info.



    It's on an Achielle Oma, a Belgian-made bike that's like a traditional Dutch-style step through. Pretty much an upright ride.



    It does look new, but...

    It's killing my sit bones and producing serious chafing when I don't wear the bike shorts. I've even had a couple of saddle sores, which has never happened to me before on another saddle, even riding...
  10. Minimum body weight to break in a Brooks?

    Hi all,

    This is an odd question: Do you need a minimum body weight to break in a Brooks saddle, specifically the B67S? I saw on the Rivendell site that you must weigh at least 175 to compress the...

    This is how I handle it too. I have one intersection along my route where a single lane of traffic splits just before the intersection into two lanes: One right turning and one straight lane. Since...

    They are great prices. I bookmarked it too.

    I think that depends partly on how far your commute is. My commute is just six miles (12 r/t). Once it gets cool enough that I'm not sweating on the way to work, I just wear my regular work clothes....

    I agree, unless you just really enjoy building your own wheels. In any case, I'm glad you are okay and that she admitted responsibility. Thanks for the pictures.

    That's a good point. I'm usually asked "how far?" so I answer in distance. I could add "it's only about a half hour each way."

    Oh, and, yes I do read your signature.

    That is irritating. I get the opposite even though my commute isn't very long. I'm amazed at how many people think six miles (12 r/t) is a long way to ride a bike.

    Lightening is one of the few weather conditions in which I absolutely will not ride. I would have sought shelter until it was safe to ride again.

    I'm incredibly lucky to have a meal plan at the college refectory, 20 meals for $72 = $3.60 a meal. It's good, healthy food too. The vegetarian station is always excellent, there's a huge salad bar,...

    "I love that milk crate. It gives your bike a kind of 'homeless chic.'"

    This one was actually from a student, and it was pretty funny.

    That's brilliant!



    Yes, I often follow up the bell with something like like this. I also say "thanks" as I pass by.
