    Crappy sunrise this morning on my commute into work ... oh, the agony.

    I saw one on my son's bike. I guess they figure 10 year old boys are likely to break em.

    I dunno. It probably complicates the insertion/removal of the rear wheel and adds to the dork factor.

    Ah, gratitude.

    I've come to regard gratitude as the greatest gift.

    You can have a lot of good things. You can do a lot of good things. And you can be a lot of good things. But if you're not...

    For me, there are some things that are look great in red. Ferraris (heck any sports car for that matter), lipstick, high heels ... anything sexy and fast.

    My first decent road bike is fire...

    Got a pair of Armadillos years ago, and struggled mightily to get them on the rim. After about 45 minutes, it finally dawned on me that if I had that much trouble getting the on, I didn't want them....

    Just remember ... it is easier to get forgiveness than permission. :D

    It's great that you're making your decision while thinking of others. We could use more of that in the world. But consider...

    Yea, me too. Except I've gone to the glued patches instead. The glueless ones might get you home, but once you get there, some of them are such that you can't remove the patch, but at the same...

    Stayed in hotels with bikes many an evening, and none have objected. And I return the favor by being extra careful with it to make sure I don't grease up anything.

    Here is a tip. Well .. a couple.

    1. I keep my spare tube in a zip lock baggie (mostly to make sure the tube isn't compromised by other crap in the seat bag. And when I repair a tube, I write...

    ^ Interesting. Come to think of it, my rear view mirror and headlight are easily detachable.

    My only question: Where do I buy that propeller? I WANT one!

    I know Nevada is the same. They require a rear reflector (blinkie is not sufficient) and a headlight mounted to the bike.

    Helmet mounted lights were not sufficient in California and Utah until...

    Thanks!

    People use HDR (High Dynamic Range) to refer to a lot of stuff. The notion is that the image ranges from very dark to very bright, and it's difficult to expose the negative without...

    Yea, I'd agree. I think that properly lit (and not the kind you get at the pub), you can be much more visible than you are in daylight, particularly on darker, quieter streets. It's a matter of how...

    My first day commuting by bike:

    1. Followed bike paths on busy streets instead of sidestreets with little or no traffic.
    2. Got a flat.
    3. No spare tube, tire irons, pump, or patch kit.

    Helmet lights are fab. I like using a flashing one for commuting (very good for getting the attention of drivers approaching perpendicularly to you), and...

    Hmmm ... interesting point. And you're right! Helmet/eyeglass mirrors don't work so well when you're on aerobars.

    They are also problematic if you wear a backpack (and I do when commuting). I...

    Reflective tape aplenty is required for all the long distance races I've done. Once applied, there is no reason to remove it.

    Buuuut ... some of that reflective tape is near impossible to remove...
