Is the leather completely torn off at the nose? It looks to me like the rest of the saddle is now supported only by the rails. I cannot imagine it's comfortable. In my opinion, the leather on that...

All in all, Salubrious, I think we agree. My wife, who is much smaller than I, and does not have disproportionately long legs, rides a 650c bike with 170 mm crank arms. Her bike is tiny, really...

Yes, please! I won't commute on a bike without fenders. In fact I hardly ever ride a bike without fenders.



No, thanks!

Snowdrops are in bloom. I've seen a few crocus as well.

This morning the air was humid and almost "warm." It didn't feel like winter anymore.

Yes, good point.

I actually like the NuVinci hub bikes a lot. I like the way the hub feels when accelerating from a stop; really cool to keep a constant cadence while gradually upshifting to...

I'd vote for the 165's.

I've often left a bike out in the back yard overnight, and in the morning the saddle has dew on it. I wipe it off as well as I can, and ride to the station. I don't worry about getting the rivets...

If they get people riding bikes who otherwise wouldn't, I'm all for pedal assist bikes, but I don't want anyone thinking this is what cycling is all about. So a few is fine, but let's not have too...

That said, I do prefer DST over Standard. In Standard time I end up riding in evening twilight, and I prefer either light or dark.
