First, I tried scrubbing with an old toothbrush and some diluted Dr. Bronner's soap.  This was okay, but my grips still felt gunky.  In the winter, this pulled fibers from my cheapie glove (the one…Continue

"What kind of bike did you ride as a kid?  Mine was a hybrid like bike with low top tube, thick tires, and straight handlebars.  I think you would be more comfortable with straight or cruiser handlebars which most people are familiar with.…"

"JeffB, people with bags on their handlebars worry me.  I've done it and it's hard to steer, hard to signal.  Invest in a rack + basket.  I like having chico bags, they fold up into a small rectangle.  Stuff one under…"

"I found Divvy uncomfortable, but I had a hard time shifting.  I should try it again since their tires look pretty beefy and there are stations by work.  I have test rode a Dahon, which is pretty comfortable. "

"Very thankful my commute is only 20 minutes.  Sadly, I probably won't ride Wednesday if we get the predicted 1 inch of snow.  Had a bad experience a few years ago and any sign of snow freaks me out!  "
