    I wear a skateboard helmet. More coverage, less venting. In -30C weather vent holes feel like drill bits being slowly screwed through forehead.

    I put slicks on my MTB during spring and fall when I am avoiding wet easily damaged muddy trails. Reminds me of riding my motorcycle. An MTB with slicks is a true urban human powered sport utility...

    My road gloves have a large pad across what I think is called the medial nerve. Comes from base of hand and goes up thumb. My MTB gloves have far less padding.

    A 26" wheeled front suspensioned MTB is your standard bike these days. The large tires are great for potholes and add a comfort factor. Nice flat handle bars and wider softer seats (low end MTB's)....

    Untill you mow down some little old lady or little kid. A bicycle on the sidewalk is as much a hazard to pedestrians as cars are to us on the road. Riding on sidewalks is illegal in my town.

    I don't use studded tires and can get through an entire winter without bailing due to black ice. I have fallen before where studs would have helped but these times are exceptions not the rule IMO.

    I've had soft drinks, bags of garbage and apples thrown at me. With my short fuse probably good thing I live in Canada and am not allowed to carry. Putting a couple rounds in the back of their...

    Are you on a MTB? MTB have big knobbies which help, while 700c wheels don't ride or float on top of snow. I have a 3 mile commute and I have walked or carried my bike at least half way many times due...

    I would look more at the 20-30 mph range. Headwinds make difference in windchill. Riding 15 mph into a 10mph headwind is 25 mph windchill.

    It's not supposed to rain in winter. If I wanted rain in winter I would move back to England. I hate rain in winter. I will take -25C and dry anytime.

    I use bandanas, neoprene facemasks and I have an old paintball mask. It's just goggles with a protective plate hanging down. Paintballs have gone up in power so coverage is much greater on new models.

    Dress properly. That is most important thing. Warm, snug and dry you can walk or ride for much longer than 15 minutes. The proper gear can be pricey. We are talking getting out in a Canadian winter...

    Bikes are not cool.

    Bikes are unsafe to ride to work on in traffic.

    Bikes leave you out in the cold and wet.

    I don't like helmet head.

    I hate the rooster tail strip.

    Switching over to 12 volt appliances might work. A bicycle could then run a car alternator. Probably easiest thing to rig up.

    You may do that but you are not a normal commuter. In Asia commuting by bike is almost the norm or at least far in excess of NA standards. This for normal commuters not avid cyclists. I only ride 3...

    Watch out in parking lots and crossing sidewalks. Ice does not melt off these areas as well as well travelled roads do.

    It goes to show the development of technology. Maybe a Para-Olympian will surpass "able" athletes. I played goal in floor hockey. The opposing goal tender was a Special Olympian. I was the sieve not...

    Fit and feel are everything. I actually kept my bars, grips and saddle from old bike and put them on new bike while trying to replicate my cockpit dimensions.
