comment What are the reasons for and against wearing a bicycle helmet?
Statistics aren't easy. If 92% of all riders don't wear helmets, does that mean that helmets are more likely to get you killed?

comment What to wear when it's cold?
My favorite hat is a wool watch cap (amazon.com/Genuine-Army-Wool-Watch-Cap/dp/B000KC2O34) but I have a hard time finding one to fit my head.

We don't know if you're riding 1/2 mi or 100 mi today. Whether it's hilly or flat. How much you are willing to carry. Etc.

Around here, cold weather is usually 45 deg F, just about all winter long. Other places it's well below freezing all winter long. In Miami, FL, when it drops below 70 deg F, they complain that it's cold. Please don't make us guess.

A lot of mechanics seem to use nitrile, but I don't know why.
