    Best small U-lock? and other locking strategies?

    What are your suggestions? I need a new one as it is time to retire the old (and I do mean old) Kryptonite. I am looking at the various minis, but if ther eis a good argument for a larger one, I will listen. It only need to be big enough to lock my rear tire to the bike racks. I use Sheldon's...

    Best Lighting System for Road Cycling

    I just bought a Planet Bike® 1200 Headlight Set, it came with a tail light all for $15. It is not a real bright system but I use it mainly so cars can see me. I start my rides just around sunrise and it is still a bit dark. Both front and back use regular batteries so I don't think they will...

    What to you consume while riding?

    many grocery stores carry the gels, that is where I buy most of mine. Often at a better price then the LBS or health food stores. You can get them pretty cheap by ordering them online in bulk.
