  2. Froze replied to the thread Avoiding Accidents On The Road.

    Eventually all states will require lights, most do now, I think only about 6 states don't require lights and those require reflectors. Some cities won't enforce any bike laws the state may have, where I live they could care less if a person...

  3. Froze replied to the thread Garmin varia rearview radar.

    The biggest drawback to this device, and it's a HUGE drawback, is the very weak tail light with only 16 lumens, you can pick up a 16 lumen light for $5 these days! and why spend money on a radar device when a simple $20 mirror would work just as...

  4. Methodical liked CAMPYBOB's post in the thread Cycling gps.

    I'm using the Garmin Edge 520. I think it was around $300 on sale for the bundle w/sensors & Premium Heart Rate Strap. I deleted the OEM 'Base Map' and uploaded 4 tiles of my corner of Ohio from: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/ A fantastic...

  5. Mr. Beanz liked zipp2001's post in the thread Did You Ride Today?.

    I lived on the TT set-up for quite a few years as my daily ride, and have used it for 12 & 2 hour events along with several double centuries. When my back starts acting up this is the best medicine for it.

    Garmin varia rearview radar

    I'm not much of a night rider(and spent out with bike purchases for the year), but this looks interesting. http://www.nashbar.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10053_10052_596965_-1___ It shows traffic behind and oncoming and flashes to...

    67 degrees and the wind a steady 14-21 MPH with gusts to 26 MPH. Yeah, required a little effort to power through. The sun was out when I through a leg over, but clouds quickly rolled in...nothing threatening, but the day turned gray in a hurry....

  9. Mr. Beanz replied to the thread New bike hurting achilles - please help.

    Hmm, seems strange they would move the cleat back. That would place the AT in a more stretched position. The cleat forward would place the pedal more at the toe allowing the tip toe position moving the AT at a higher position with less stretch....

    Is it just as comfy on a TT bike a a regular roadie? Seems like the angles would be a little steep for longer rides, but I dunno!
