-Getting married. I tried it and I like it!
–My new commute. Riding into Parsippany near a lot of highways & stripmalls is easier than I thought it would be. A few different route options are available. No problemo.
–Full Moon werewolf rides! Nightime bike jaunts with friends is way fun!
–Hell of Hunterdon was a fun ride.
–Blackburn Flea solar/usb charge rear light. Tiny yet bright rear light. The usb & solar charger work well. I’ve got mine clipped onto the back of my rear fender as a just in case/backup. Martys sells these.
–Boulder 650b allroad. I went fat and I wont go back! 650b x 42 high performance lightweight supple tires are awesome. The bike glides over bumps. It’s a very very comfortable and fast bike. I get home from a long ride over rough roads and I feel like I have’nt ridden at all! Very stable, the bike is unaffected by sidewinds. Any front load all but disappears, it is very easy to balance luggage over the front wheel.
-Visiting the local cobbler to get my old soccer shoes stiffened up for cycling. New life for my floppy shoes!
-Hardware store safety glasses for cold or buggy night riding. These dont even look dorky! How did I live without em?
-More wool! Wool socks, pants, undies, sweaters and jerseys. Comfortable over a very broad temperature range. Does not itch. Will not stink…. ever! Warm when wet!
-Reflective sash. Small, light, easy on/off. People tell me its very noticeable.
–Dyno hub w/ light: Shimano dyno front hub with an B&M IQ cyo provides infinite light with a perfect beam for my purposes, and it wont blind oncoming traffic.
Why dont you share a couple of thing you tried & liked?
