comment Sport Hybrids For Commuting and Exercise?
I personally hate flat bars even with bar ends. My hands always start to ache within 30 minutes. But that and $3 will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks.

comment Are there any bicycle computers that will log ride data?
I have the 500 and would highly recommend it. It lasts two days with care without recharging and holds a week's tours worth of data without overwriting the early data. The second item is crucial if you don't have access to a PC during a multi-day ride. I have yet to lose GPS signal in very hilly terrain in multiple eastern seaboard states.

comment Long-lasting price-worthy fenders?
I have had the safety clip release the front fender during the spring too when I misjudged debris in the road. I find these pretty easy to get off at least compared to metal fenders. I have never used the PlanetBike ones so I cannot say which is intrinsically better.
