I rode to work this morning and it seems like I'll have a damp ride home. I heard there was a chance of rain this afternoon, but I decided to risk it. So my question to you: What % chance of rain keeps you off your bike? And who do you trust for weather predictions?
This is the first version I built, years ago- I still use the hard suitcase style saddlebags each time I break them down and start with new frame and stuff. I am going on the lakefront bike path today after 1pm at lawrence ave and head to navy pier-care to join me?

Gene, I think with amperage like that we are simply going to have to see a picture of your wheels. :-)

Anything over 10%
I have 2600 Amps, 12 Volts, running 11 lights, car stereo, air compressor, fridge,
and other appliances.
Same thing almost happened to me, I saw 10% chance but then searched the day forecast and it said morning showers. Its important to also check the daily forecast, I know, cause I have electric appliances on my bike if you see the hourly and daily % doesnt match up, go for the side of rain.
Of course today when it was 0% chance rain for the whole day in the morning forecast, I get caught in the afternoon shower.
