comment Schwinn Vestige no longer lights up; why not?
The only thing I can see that you didn't report testing was the actual bulbs. Replaceable?

comment Things to consider buying my second bike!
Could you tell us a bit more about the kind of cycling you do? On-road commuting, paved trails, gravel trails, off-road, some combination? Bikes and their components tend to be tuned to specific types of riding.

comment What features make a good fitness tracker for cyclists?
Well, I can help answer the opposite of your question: the FitBit One does not track cycling. You can log it, but eh, the log interface is absolutely freakin' awful.

comment My front deraileur needs adjustment after every ride
My experience with a Revo shifter was lousy -- I had one on my older bike and it gave me nonstop grief until dying entirely, whereupon the LBS replaced it with an SRAM (I forget the model) which has been fine. There's an outside chance the Revo is your problem.

comment Chain vs chainless options
I used to have to replace chains once a year owing to stretching. My belt drive's been going strong for two, and I don't anticipate having to replace it for several more. Not sure where the idea that chains are more durable than belts comes from. It is true that chains are more repairable, however.

Legal or not, it's epic stupid. Please don't do it.

comment How to dress for biking 3 miles to work in 40 and below so not to sweat to much but still keep warm
I have ears that stick out a bit. ;) Round about the low 40sF cold ears start getting distracting for me. YMMV!

The bit about "don't dress so that you're warm when you get on the bike" is crucial. That's the fast road to overheating.
