comment What bicycle to buy for commuting to work and for leisure (Aberdeen)
For commuting, get a luggage rack. Cycling with panniers is so much better than cycling with a backpack!

@eldering That works on a touring bike as well, and I've even seen mountain bikes with luggage racks. I personally hate cycling with a backpack and for me a luggage racks is very high priority for any bicycle, no matter how high-end or low-end.

@Johnny I changed the first sentence to point out what it relates to people who sweat when cycling, but not when walking.

@Johnny Do you sweat when you walk too?

In sufficiently hot weather I sweat when doing nothing at all, but I still sweat less when cycling than when walking. Perhaps it's my Dutch genes?

@Jefromi Valid point. I added parenthesis to "steeply uphill" to point out that one can sweat in hot weather under any conditions, even if doing nothing. I've never cycled in >35°C myself, but I find cycling in 30–35°C weather less unpleasant than walking, because the air cools me down. As long as I'm not going uphill, of course.

Where in the world are you located? From context, I'm guessing the United States of America.

@GordonCopestake Sit up bikes enhance visibility and make it easier to see what's happening around you. I would consider these factors make them more advantageous when infrastructure is lacking, not less.

@ChrisW Some clues this photo is probably taken in March: bare trees and an ad for something to open in March. I commuted 12 years in The Netherlands, 6 years in Sweden, 1½ years in Toronto. Sweden and Ontario get cold in winter, but are rarely windy in spring and summer. On the photo it's probably less than 10°C and windy — it's certainly before rokjesdag.

@MR04 If motorists want to do 50 km/h, does it really make that much of a difference whether a cycling is doing 18 km/h or 26 km/h?

@ChrisW Perhaps a windy and humid day in spring in The Netherlands is less pleasant than you think :)

comment Long term benefits and risks of bicycling
@ChrisW I agree, 3000€ is extreme. Although under specific conditions for very long commutes one might consider recumbents or velomobiles which will easily go in the thousands of €.
