    I just got a B&M Lumotec Fly IQ premium light for my bike. It has crazy LED daytime running lights. I have another bike with a modern sidewall generator. It works fine but makes noise and has a...

    Thanks, all! I'll keep an eye out for one of these suggested jackets.
  3. Suggestions on a good wind layer in cold weather?

    I'm struggling a bit with the wind blocking layer. As the temps dip below 40 I usually add a wind layer on top. I've tried a super-breathable e-Vent running jacket (too swampy, short in back), ...

    I've heard good things about the Axiom panniers. I use a big saddle bag because my bike squeezes in the garage and the saddle bag is narrower than panniers. That's something to consider going from...

    I would say, quite anecdotally, that they made an effort not to put items in the "bicycle projects" group, even if they would be a huge benefit for cyclists. It's more about posturing and messaging...

    If you're using lights with a shaped beam (like a car low beam headlight) then the flashing and blinding people is less of an issue. The problem is that these types of lights are not common in the...

    The cape is out over your hands and handlebars, so it blocks rain coming from the front and keeps it off of your thighs. So it's long in the front. I have the Rivendell one and I wear it with an...

    If your car insurance has an uninsured motorist clause you can use that to cover your injuries even if you were not driving at the time. That's what I heard at the Fairfax Bike Summit!

    Yes, Dutch bikes are heavy. My Torker Cargo T (basically a Batavus Personal Delivery bike, similar to rental bikes in Amsterdam) weights about 45-50lbs. It's a three speed. My commute is 7 miles...

    I wear a long billed baseball cap under my helmet. I skip my safety/sunglasses when it's raining. It also looks oh-so-stylish.

    I use the rack mount that cyclingfool mentioned. I clip my PB Turbo flash into it. You may want to get a full-bolt-on light if you don't want to mess with unclipping the light from the rack. ...

    I would recommend having an Advocate from WABA or LAB come into your office. There's no need to re-create the wheel and you should be wary of giving out bad information when it comes to safety, etc.

    Nitto R-15 is kind of random. For any of you Rivendell fans the saddlesack large was made to fit on this rack. There's a little cutout in the bag to fit the rack's tombstone.
