I've been commuting by bike since 2009. I enjoy road cycling and occasional mountain biking.

comment How does the geometry of cross bikes affect on-road handling?
Just to be clear, "commuting speed" is a very relative term. Average commuting speeds can range from 10 mph to 20 mph, depending on the person.

comment What should I use, VeloPlugs, Rim Tape, or Rubber Rim Strips in new wheels?
High pressure rim tape is elastic and doesn't have a sticky backing, right? If it's the stuff I'm thinking of, it's great and doesn't slide around like ordinary cloth rim tape can.

comment Suggestions for winter cycling glasses?
In addition to tinting, another major problem is fogging up, particularly if you're using a balaclava (or even if you're not).

comment Why does the glue in a puncture repair kit dry up so quickly?
I tried this, but even with the teflon tape, it still dried out. I don't know if I left too much air in the tube, or if I didn't use enough tape.
