KevinM replied to Rob D.'s discussion HELP! Expert suggestions needed for cold hands/fingers!
"Those look really hardcore, and they should do the trick. My ski-mitts look like that, but were much cheaper, and I don't even use the liners except on the coldest days."
KevinM replied to Rob D.'s discussion HELP! Expert suggestions needed for cold hands/fingers!
"I use down insulated mittens on the coldest days and regular ski mittens when the weather is between 15-30 degrees. If products like that aren't working for you, and you still want to ride, I think you should look into buying some…"

"You'll need to do A LOT of work that is going to cost at least $200. I suggest mounting the shifters you have on the handlebar or stem.  you'll need to spread the frame to 130mm (which is a bad idea if the Vitus is aluminum),…"
KevinM replied to Kevin C's discussion Road Construction Report(s)
"That stretch REALLY needs a bike lane. The road is wide, cars drive really fast, buses drive right next to the crub, and there's always a nasty bottleneck at the bridge over the river. "

KevinM replied to Chitown_Mike's discussion Shoe covers/cleats vs Boots/platform pedals
"Waterproof shoe covers wont hold up for daily use. You'll need something insulated and winter-specific to get through the winter. Either hiking boots and pinned platform pedals or winter cycling shoes.  I like to use standard winter…"

Hey Kelvin,

I'm a journalism grad student at Northwestern, and I'm writing an article on the Divvy bikes. I noticed you'd commented on one of the Divvy threads. Do you mind if I ask you some questions for my article? I've included a couple Qs below. My deadline is at 4:00, sorry for the late notice! Please let me know if you'd be able to help, I would so appreciate it!

- How much do you use Divvy? How much do you use your other bikes?
- What have your Divvy experiences been like?
- Do you bike during the winter? Will you Divvy during the winter?

My email is Once again-- thanks so much!

Hi Kelvin, last year you posted a review for your Dry Duks rainsuit. How's it holding up since then?  Have you found that it's too bulky?  Thinking of getting one.  Thanks!

I have one set of Superbe Hubs. They are currently laced into some Mavic GEL280 sew-up wheels. No superbe shifters. I do have one set of Superbe-Pro track pedals NIB (never been on a bike... or even out of the box except to take some photos). I'm the original owner. Now those are definitely a diamond in the rough. $100 if you want 'em.
