    When you became an organization, your HO coverage ended. The organization needs the Product liability coverage, and you would likely be classified as a bike shop for that purpose. As an individual,...

    You can find some good songs with a 85-90 beat, and just time it with your left or right foot. I was a heel striker and went to zero drop shoes. Fixed my knee problems, but took a good 2 months of...

    I agree with the comments of going for the Invite 2 (of those you listed). It has the most flexibility. You can run 700x25s and have very little ride difference than the Avail, but if the gravel...

    If the lights are single terminal, it means tha they are likely grounding through the bolt to connect them to the frame. If the bolt hole has copper around/inside it, then that is what its trying to...

    Eh...run what you brung. I have a pump on every bike I ride with the pump head set to the valve on that bike. I maintain operating PSI with the dual head floor pump in the garage. In 10 years...

    Not "seriously" but deinately upscale. I have done it but get the stink-eye something fierce. If it were just the bar staff, no biggie, they usually are fine after they see the tab. The co-workers...

    Cycling and being presentable afterwards

    I am car-lite. I commute to work daily, and often will take the kids places on our bikes. My problem is that every time I have an after work event, I feel like I have to drive so I don't show up as...

    I think I'm the crazy one. I ride 6 miles to the gym to do a spin class, then ride 2 miles to work, then ride home 6 miles. I found I wasn't challenging myself on the bike outdoors, and the spin...

    As a counterpoint, I ride drops through the winter all the time. Conditions can get bad, but on a 46 cm drop bar I feel I have plenty of torque to deal with the situations at hand. I also agree...

    I've ridden 26x2.1(Kenda), 26x1.9 (Mount and ground), 700x37 (W106s) and 700x32 (A10s). All of these are worthless on an unplowed MUP. In fresh snow I've found the 26" versions significantly better...

    Car ran into carbon bike...that about sums it up. Steel Car vs. Carbon Bike....Car wins...In other news, water is wet. Also, this should probably not be in commuting.

    Just stick with it. Put an extra pair of everything at work because sooner or later you will show up at work without a shirt/pants/socks/underwear/shoes/belt. I've ridden that area quite a bit. ...

    To me it really depends on the road and the definition of "on your wheel." I do not draft off of people I don't know. However, if the way is narrow and I'm only slightly faster than the rider...

    Not this one. Its primarily a bike trail and runs along a freeway nowhere near any homes or businesses. I tend to be one of the slower cyclists on this trail.

    Joke or not, this really is not a bad setup, especially if you use a vbrake up front. I prefer disc's myself just from the keeping the braking surface clean aspect of them, but I never had issues...

    Don't use your hands to hold up your body, use your core. Using your core sucks bigtime until you build it up, but it will take the pressure off your hands. Also, fit as already discussed.

    When the temps are in the 60-70s with little to no wind, somewhere around 20 miles one way. When the temps are in the -10s and the wind is blowing 20-30 mph, 1 mile is tough. I find my 5 mile...

    I gave her 5' of clearence. Much more than I get from cars with a larger speed differential. Also, wide open path no trees, and my only other option is freeway which is 'idiotic', or go 5 miles out...

    Almost never. I've had a few run-ins over the years of commuting, but on a daily basis its essentially zero. My riding is a mix of paved MUPs and local roads with the occasional arterial thrown in.

    I also recommend this. Ive ridden through water deep enough to submerge my UN bottom bracket a few times, plus I've been in lots of downpours. Still works like a champ. I do pull the BB out and...
