    Agree. I've tried some walkable, MTB shoes only - knew right away that regular road bike shoes are not for me. Still, prefer just plain clothes shoes. I commute for around 30 minutes, then spend at...

    I love riding clipless.

    However, I hate having special shoes. I like riding to work, to the store etc in any old shoes, sportshoes, or winter boots I like. Platforms with studs are my choice....

    My rain commuter is an old, rigid MTB. Can anyone recommend tyres that are fast on pavement, but can go over hard packed dirt occasionaly? Pavement where I ride is pretty rough (potholes, craked...

    Winter tyres - 2nd iteration?

    I've been riding Schwalbe Marathon Winter tyres last winter. Studed tyres. They are very good on hard packed snow, and on ice. My winter bike is an old MTB.

    However, winters in my city are such...

    That particular Schwalbe model is for ice and hard packed snow. In those conditions it is very good. They also roll OK on stretches of road without snow. They are not the best choice for soft snow.

    No.




    A decent bicycle pump is under 10 euros.

    The narrower the tyre, the higher the pressure, the more easily it is punctured.

    I would avoid more than 8 cogs at the rear for anything but racing. More expensive, more sensitive to cables getting dirty, stuck, derailleur developing some play etc. More expensive chains. If not...

    If lifting and carrying an <20 kg bike is a problem, one should seek medical help, not get a more expensive bicycle. Just my 2c.

    Getting a 2nd backup bike is wise.

    I have an 80s all rigid MTB and a road bike.

    However, road bike is much more sensitive - potholes, etc. A wiser choice would be a cyclocross, or a hybrid...

    That would be cool. :)


    5703 works OK as far as 10 speed stuff I've tried goes. 8 speed is still better IMO, for all except racing.

    8 at the rear is not going backwards. It is better in most ways. Except for racing. 9, 10, 11 - just marketing. You pay more for worse, more fiddly equipment. Been there (10 speed) and never again.
