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 few albums.

comment Studded tires for small wheels
Thanks. I'd still like to see if studs are available commercially (I've searched and haven't been able to find them), but if not, rolling my own is the way to go.

comment Studded tires for small wheels
I'm a little concerned with having razor-sharp things pointing out of my tire, particularly when taking the bike on the train during rush hour. Are commercially made studded tires pointy as well?

Okay. If something about the Camelbak bladders is better, could someone who has a basis for comparison please note that?

comment What do you do to make positive you remember your water bottle?
@milesmeow: I think this is relevant, since the question is asking how to remember something ride-supporting (i.e., hydration mechanisms common to most bikes).

comment Does Enduro make a ceramic hybrid wheel bearing kit for WTB Laser Disc Lite hubs?
That's certainly a fair request! The closest we have right now is the site FAQ, theres a link at the top of every page. That'll help you frame a question in the Stack Exchange way. We'll eventually put more detail in the main FAQ, but we're still working out the details in terms of what's on and off topic. There are a few threads on the meta.bicycles site; check out the ones with the tag on-off-topic.

As it is, the question is somewhat esoteric unless a user is familiar with bearings. Also, you're you're just asking for a product link, something that could probably be resolved by calling the manufacturer. Perhaps you could give more information about the problem, outlining what you need the bearing replacements for? You may get more responses that way.

comment Is listening to music dangerous while cycling?
@Anthony K: No, that would be even more of a potentially argumentative issue.
