    It was quite floody and muddy out there this morning. The underpass on W&OD at Bluemont was really dangerous. The creek flooded and brought a LOT of mud and sediment onto the path that wants to...

    that thread is all good info.

    I'll throw in my unpopular opinion here though since my commute is 20 miles each way as well. As my screen name implies, I ride an ebike. I started for fitness. ...

    Ok, I'll throw my educated guess in the ring about the "safety cut-out" feature. It's most likely not safety for the rider, but safety for the motor. They've likely programmed the controller to cut...

    I'd be happy to let you/anyone use my data from strava to start to put some factual detail to this debate. I have a class 3 ebike and have been commuting 4-5 days/week from Vienna to DC since July. ...

    Any bike shop should be able to replace the spokes and true the wheel for your ebike. I had it done at bike@vienna for less than $20 with my ebike rear wheel with a hub motor but I bought the tools...

    Yep, that was me. I ended up just rolling some dress shirts carefully and bringing them in. When I need to do the full suit dry cleaning, I've employed the use of my brother-in-law who works nearby...

    Welcome! I bought a refurbished e-bike back in June to start commuting from Vienna to SW DC and lose some weight (about 20 miles each way). It's been great and I've lost ~60 lbs since I started in...

    W&OD from Vienna to Columbia Pike hadn't been touched when I rode in around 7am this morning. It wasn't too slick and I was fine with regular tires and giving myself more stopping distance and time....

    No, don't sell it short, Triskaidekphilic just rolls right off the tongue . . . We could go by T-Kids for short though

    Quick intro for me, I live in Vienna and work in SW DC. In July I started...

    One or two times this week in the morning I noticed my Shimano hydraulic discs (with mineral oil) to be a little stiff when I hadn't used them in bit. But one or two pumps of the brake lever got...

    The W&OD from Vienna to the Custis turnoff is the same as yesterday, mostly covered in packed snow with some dry patches, but the overpasses and bridges are pretty clear and it didn't really turn to...

    W&OD from Vienna to Banneker Park is pretty good. Less than an inch of snow, no real ice to speak of, but Van Buren St. was probably the worst cleared street I saw today. the slush at the crossings...

    For us newbies, is it essential to get snow/studded tires for commuting in the winter and participating in BAFS? My commute is along the W&OD from Vienna to DC. I generally take the W&OD to 4mile...

    My point above is that beginner, casual, average, and even most above average riders can't maintain 28mph for miles on end either on an e-bike (as would be legal under CA's class system) and so it's...

    There's a lot of factual information missing in this thread, with a lot of misrepresentations about e-bikes in general, that is now morphing into specifying class 3 e-bikes. Nothing personal against...

    When you say you could fit 2/3 suits and 4 shirts, did that include the jackets? If so, that would probably be perfect since I can rotate through the stock I keep at my office pretty easily.

    That's really interesting, especially since I wouldn't have to fold them over anything at all like the rack with panniers and could use a regular garment bag. It's definitely more $$ than I was...
