I lived on a boat for all of last year so have a fair bit of experience on what my favourites where when i was actually on the boat. Here...

These aren't frame bags. And given their styling i think they look so much better than a person on a road bike with a massive turtle shell...

Time to get onto the handlebar bag trend! Or saddle bag! I suggest checking out the Carradice Nelson Longflap with the bagman expedition qr...

I have been cycling to work for the past 3 years. And before then on/off for the 4 years prior. Current route 5.5km each way. (previous...

probably not after hearing the BF outline alt, cheaper purchase options.

I have a number of expensive hobbies... I feel they are a strong motivator to be successful :P - Skiing - My original vice. Multiple skis...

Those statistics are compelling. but safety with respect to cycling has a far greater correlation to the number of people cycling. More...

Macpac just got purchased by the Super Retail Group (who own Rays) so my guess is they're playing around with pricing at the moment. Doing...

I have seen a few used Rancilio Silvia with grinders for around this sort of price lately. So you can get a decent quality machine and...

Regarding your #2 you can actually move them out earlier than the end of their fixed lease. "The landlord, a member of their immediate...

Renting doesn't make the rich, richer. It covers the expenses (or part of) of the ongoing cost of ownership. The numbers have been run...

[@HighAndDry](/comment/6338775/redir): I drive on average 30-40,000km a year. So I drive a fair bit more than most. I am definitely...

It's exactly like braking on a normal non-motorised bicycle. The motors have a cut off switch that senses when a brake is pulled so they...

you looked left and right, but stated you were edging out - my guess because you still couldn't see everything. Thus you hadn't effectively...

Ah. that'd make more sense. Though interesting that they stipulate that... I guess it avoids bill shock going beyond $1500...
