    It was a wonderful ride until everything went to $h:):)t

    Anyway. I stand corrected. Just assumed it was the weight. After all, this was a place I ride frequently on my road bike, and it's a pretty...
  4. First time commuting with a loaded pannier.

    I know, intellectually, that when a bike carries more weight, the tire pressure must be increased.

    Heck. I even posted a chart a month or two ago listing rider weight against tire width and ideal...

    What type of fabric lines the Dakine; they aren't cycling specific, correct? Were you looking for lightweight and well ventilated?

    I have very sensitive skin. Aquafour or petroleum jelly is very...

    I like white. White shows up better if you get caught out at dusk, and it's cooler.

    We've got quite a few Wounded Warriors in our area on hand-cycles. They even had a ride for it a few years back with donated handcycles for the event.

    I think you'd need to give a specific example. Also, you prefer a saddle without a cutout?

    Didn't mean to be pushy. :o Thanks, though. I'll check those out. Kind of a big issue for me. It at least tell me to research 'gastric emptying,' which I've never considered.

    Definitely don't go back to that shop.

    I assume you haven't actully test-ridden either the Trek or the Vita? You can tell a lot by actually riding them. I know a lot of shops don't stock the...

    Well, I think my sips from podium bottles are actually 'gulps,' but I agree with NY, a gulp and a sip is like a pinch and a dash. ;). Or perhaps 'yea high?' I thought you meant more like a cup at a...

    I understand drinking a large amount ahead of time, but a large amount at a time while riding doesn't make sense to me, I'd think sips would leave the stomach and enter the rest of the body more...

    Okay. I just bought the Switchback for $103.00, and the Transit Torrent for about 55.00 on sale at Performance. So...Plenty of capacity. I need more than one bag if I'm carrying my purse, stuff for...

    I live near Savannah, GA. What everyone said. Also, reduce your ride length for now; frequent short rides of 10-15 miles until you acclimate to strenuous outdoor activity in the heat. Cycling uses a...

    I wondered. The Switchback specifically mentions that is works on the Randonneer and 'other' racks. But I think it's also a pannier. I suppose a pannier would be okay; especially since my rack has...

    What is your budget?

    If the safety of used worries you, maybe you should stay away from them? (They are probably fine, though).

    He still has 4 movies due to be released in the next year or so. The commedies are going to be painful. Hard to laugh and cry at the same time. Also supposed to be one that is quite serious.

    Hmmm. Looks like the stand-over is much lower than before. That TT is significantly longer, less compact geometry all around.

    Maybe they wanted the smallest size to be longer and shorter? The...
