comment Safety data: Which is safer, head/tail lights which blink or emit a steady beam?
Just as an addition: Note that in jurisdictions where bicycle lights are required by law, usually a non-blinking light is required (for example in Germany). In that case, a blinking light is only legal in addition to a non-blinking light.

comment How can I make my bike (and myself) visible at night?
+1 I also use a generator front hub, and I'm very happy with it. 500$ however seems excessive. Front hub generators run from ~ 50 - 200$ (plus cost of the wheel).

comment How to keep the pants from getting dirty
On a bike with an exposed chain, light-colored trousers are problematic in my opinion - you will get oil stains on them at some point, and on light-colored fabric these are very visible and almost impossible to remove.

comment Re-painting Rims
So in other words, while it's technically possible to anodize a used rim, it's probably much cheaper and easier to get a new rim...

comment What's your most useful cycle accessory?
@Duncan: It's Ortlieb (not Ortleib) - just to help people find it (though Google will auto-correct :-)). ortlieb.com And yes, they make good bags.

comment Periodic Maintenance Task for Bike Commuters
Note that many (most?) modern bottom brackets are sealed units, which do not need to (and usually cannot) be serviced, so no adjusting, let alone disassembling and greasing.
