I'm an experienced bike commuter and touring cyclist. I have passions for folding bikes, drawing and painting, and playing my guitars. I'm often seen hauling groceries with or taking photos from my bike. I'm also a musician, and my band also has released a couple of albums.

My GPS has an altitude function, although I find it to be not as accurate as I'd like. Are there altimeters available for bicycles that are more accurate?

Which kickstand do you have now? This would be even more useful if you provided details about what kickstand you have and why you like it.

What's good about the CamelBak in particular, as opposed to other bladder brands?

Can you add what particular use this is good for? (e.g., commuting, as a giant tool bag for frail volunteers, whatever?)

Perhaps what can differentiate this page from the terminology index can be that one explains what something is in a general way, like a trunk rack bag, but this page explains something in particular, like Brock's answer about the Topeak rig? This answer is particularly good, because it's not just a product recommendation, but a recommendation for a particular bag with a particular rack.

comment Can you be ticketed for breaking the speed limit on a bike?
Please limit replies to non-anecdotal accounts. ("I know a guy who heard of... et cetera"). This is a potentially useful question, and I'd like to know the answer.

@Dustin: I think you're right, but I'm keeping an eye on this page.

Note: Please try to keep this to items that aren't already on the terminology index, although some duplication is probably inevitable.

@Kevin: Sure, a list of accessories sounds potentially useful. I'm curious to see what the community comes up with. (It's a similar reasoning as used for the terminology index.)

@M. Converse: I'm afraid not, the fork is aluminum. It's pretty sturdy, though.

comment Plastic taste in my backpack water bladder
@Paul: Same here, people use "Camelbak" to mean a bladder, I just want to avoid it in tags. If it becomes an issue, we'll discuss in meta. (Yeah, it's spelled without a C.)
