"I've used those pedals on my old road bike, and I have 520s on my cross bike. I used the same (stiff!) Northwave mtb shoes with both pedals and honestly could not tell the difference. YMMV depending on your shoes. I never get hotspots with my…"
"My commute is 13.5 miles one way. When I get going I would say I am going around 18-20. I can't ever get into a good groove because I stop at stop lights. To answer according to your exertion scale, I would say 20-25."
"In the city avg is 10 mph but I ride a standard cog and fixed is more about flow than speed and stopping.
Back when I rode the LFP to work on a 21 speed I'm guessing 20-25mph because I could do it in 30 minutes Ardmore to IBM/house o Blues…"

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Once again-- thanks so much!
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.
