I love the bike, but I've had intermittent problems with brake squealing as well and I've had the bike since last year. I think I'll try the alcohol method as well.

I'm an average sized guy, 5'10", 170 pounds, I can easily fit into a medium sized polo shirt although sometimes I'll go for a large if it's not too baggy of a cut. However, when it comes to cycling...

Can Anyone Recommend A Good Bike Light

Can anyone recommend a good LED bike light? Preferably one that charges with a USB. I've found that a lot of them are $150 and up. Kind of pricey for a little lamp.
