    For the record, my best battery life from my 800 was doing the Kill Bill Century from Reston in 2011. I think I was out for 13 or so hours, and it was just about dead when I got home. Like anything...

    I download Dirts (and other) road routes often to follow on solo rides. I actually upgraded from my old Edge 305 to the 800 solely for that reason. Note that while Garmin wants to sell you their...

    I'd say one of the 500 series if you just want recording (cheaper and smaller), or an 800 series if you want real time navigation. I've had an Edge 800 for several years now and have been very happy...

    Sure, plowing with the blade a bit above pavement doesn't leave you with a clean surface, but its a massive improvement over what they used to do, which was nothing. I commuted on the W&OD year...

    I tried, but as soon as I said the word "snow" they screamed "DONT SUE US!" and closed schools.

    IME, this is the problem with wool socks. They are warm and retain their insulative value when wet, but don't dry quickly. I always try and remember to toss an extra pair of socks in the bag if its...

    True. And also probably differentiate between deliberate acts (like "I want to make a right turn in 1/4 mile but I'm stuck in traffic. I'll just drive up this bike lane to get there!") and...

    I think anything that improves things is good. Paint is (generally, if done in a non-stupid way) better than nothing, flex posts/curbs are better than paint, fully divided infrastructure (walls,...

    The cynic in me says that these are usually part of the proposal just so they have something they can cut when people whine about cost/environmental impact/etc.

    I second the "clipless>platforms" sentiment. I do still run platforms on the DH and DJ bikes (aka bikes I might need to get off of in a hurry), but I can't imagine running platforms for anything I'm...

    I wouldn't get too hung up on what you've seen. Decide what works for you. If you prefer platforms and want to wear lycra, then ride platforms and wear lycra. Roadies will sneer at you, but...

    I also like using a little bit of carbon paste on things like seatposts, because it both prevents seizing and increases friction so you don't need things as tight to prevent slipping.

    I just need a few sections to clear off a bit more and I can switch back to the glorious, fast road bike and hang the stud-equipped touring bike back on the ceiling. Just a few more sections...

    Its probably contamination in the cables. Water seeps into the housing over time, and when its super cold, it freezes and prevents the cable from moving. Squeezing the brake lever is doable because...

    I get what you're saying, but road runoff doesn't go to treatment plants or anything. It goes straight to the local waterway and eventually to the bay. I just seriously doubt that the tiny amount...
