comment How do I find out which channel size I need in my seat?
Koobi is another option. They give you a trial period with a full refund available. Going to a shop and trying out a number of saddles is always best. Make sure to ride/spin for a bit on your bike with each saddle you try.

comment Daily commuting - are dietary supplements recommended?
My commute is up hill both ways too. I have about 500ft of change both ways. I work on one side of a valley and live on the other.

comment What is the best breakfast right before cycling?
I usually eat something like a granola fruit bar before my commute, but I take a snack to eat once I am at work. I usually eat that snack while working, instead of surfing, but that is just me. :P I also tend to eat a granola bar just before my commute home to make sure I have a bit of sugar before my ride.

comment How to find the vertical height between any two points?
@moz I can't be sure but I think that @Roflcoptr is looking to figure out the change in elevation on a route they are either riding or looking to ride. If one is commuting elevation change can be an important consideration. But I agree in its current form this is not a very good question for bicycles.stackexchange

comment What's the purpose of cycling gloves?
They also are nice protection if you fall and try to catch yourself with your palms.

I hear you on the geared bike idea, @M.Werner. I only ran into this hill problem when I moved from a flat area to a mountainous one. I started riding SS when I didn't have to worry about hills and needing other gears and now I enjoy the simplicity with not needing to think about gears.

I might try and stop by my LBS this weekend and see if they can help find the right gears. Thanks for giving me a direction to head in.

I see your point. Thanks for another explanation. Also, I didn't down vote(I don't have enough rep + you made a good point so I don't understand a down vote). I'd vote you back up to 0 if I could!

I like the idea, but this isn't that feasible since I have a SS. If I put a hill climbing gear on I would be hosed in the flat. I think building my endurance will be a big help.
