comment What are the pros and cons of panniers vs messenger bags?
+1, just to add to the issue with weight - using a messenger bag with lots of weight might be tolerable while riding, but I found that the uneven stress on my shoulders developed painful and range limiting pain in my neck and upper back. Now I use panniers except for light loads.

comment Single speed conversion chain keeps derailing rear cog under load?
I do it the same way, but I don't find it necessary to lay down the bike or use my feet.

comment Recommended inexpensive heart-rate monitors?
@Wilka actually, I guess these are not wrist-only even though the product info on Amazon doesn't always mention that there is a chest strap. So, I assumed that the most popular ones didn't have a chest strap.

comment What are the reasons for and against wearing a bicycle helmet?
I heard this said in the 80's about the old styrofoam helmets that had a separate lycra cover, that the styrofoam would stick to the road. But I don't think it is any longer valid. @Jay do you have any research to back this up? At the same time I have heard that the main benefits of the leather helmets over no helmet at all is that they reduce this risk.
