comment What is the best web application to create cycling cue sheets for future rides
I have used MapMyRide and like the features and ease of use, but last time I tried to use it, it failed to print in the middle of my trip. They also start to charge your card indefinitely, rather than allowing one-time use for rare tours. Hopefully these issues will be addressed.

comment Winter commuting - how to keep warm?
It rarely gets below 0F where I live, I won't know how to dress for that very well either.

Regarding cayenne, I have another post about the effect of diet on warmth. Also Dottie has a great video on how to dress for winter bike commuting targeted more towards women.

comment Heavier Thicker Chains and Gears for Winter due to Salt?
In about 4 years of ownership, I've ridden in rain and snow dozens of times and I think had 2 flats in the rear. I'm still using the original tube and tire. Changing flats is really not worth optimizing for with this bike.

comment Unconventional, pretty bicycle helmets
These "hideously ugly" helmets are likely safer because they have a more spherical shape to better address rotational impacts, and fewer vents that objects can penetrate. More that here.

comment Unconventional, pretty bicycle helmets
My wife and I have Bern helmets. I have the G2. I have never found it to be "too hot", even when riding 100+ miles at nearly 90 degrees (F). I notice the lightweight design, and much appreciate the sun visor. (I have expected it to feel hotter on some occasions, it jus has never felt that much hotter.)
