    I don't think there is any single US web vendor that is consistently the cheapest. Sometimes you can get good deals at the outlet sites and EBay, though selection is obviously very limited.

    In my experience, the GP4000 has much worse flat resistance than the Gatorskins, especially in wet conditions. My recommendation is to go with the Conti 4-Seasons if you like the Gatorskins for...

    Lights are OK, but steady instead of blinking is less obnoxious. Also aim them straight back or lower, not upward into the eyes of people around you. Too many bicyclists have poorly aimed lights that...

    IMHO - flashers catch the attention of drivers, but steady lights give them a much better idea of your location and direction of travel. Don't use flashers alone, especially on dark streets. Front...

    Best response is to take a photo of his vehicle and license plate and forward it to local law enforcement and bicycle safety groups.

    Especially for road bikes:

    Consumer Reports just rated the Sony Action camera the best because of picture quality and built-in image stabilization. GoPro does have a lot more mount options, though.

    The trainer skewer is sturdier than the skewers that usually come with your wheels. No reason to not use it all the time, except for the extra weight.

    Are you using the bicycle mode in Google Maps?

    Other apps may be better for some areas, but none that I have tried have the same national and international coverage as Google Maps.

    Garmin has some competitors in Europe, but these aren't popular in the US. I don't know if that is because of marketing issues or because quality US map data is too expensive for them.

    GoPro's headquarters are in California, but I'm pretty sure they never had a factory here. They always outsourced manufacturing to China.

    Western brand name products shipped directly from China are almost always counterfeit. Some of this stuff is decent quality, some is not. You pay your money and take your chances.

    I've always found Jagwire to be fine quality for the price. I always buy from authorized dealers, though. Too many crooks on EBay.
