    8/9/10/11 speed? What gear range is the existing one? Mountain or road cassette?

    I generally get cheaper cassettes and chains, because they all function pretty similar and its a wear part that I...

    Those Cabi bikes are freaking tanks. Im surprised it didn't rip the door off.

    Anything that damages a BMW is a win in my book. ;)

    Assuming you have a safe place to store it at work, I'd recommend just starting with the road bike and a backpack or messenger bag for stuff-carrying. I personally have been commuting for years...

    I'm also 5'-6" and have a 50cm Soma Saga built up as a touring bike. You're welcome to give it a whirl if you want.

    I do think that tech has trickled down to the point where you don't need to go high end (or even mid range) anymore to get good quality parts. I think the functional improvement after mid-range...

    To be fair, the big name brands do this too. I had a mid-range Lemond a while back and pretty much all the non-grouppo parts were junk (Bontrager branded junk, but still junk). The wheels imploded...

    I remember reading a thread on another forum a while back about someone who had ordered something from a place reasonably close by (like 50 miles away or so). It was Fedex so he could track where it...

    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...

    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,...
