Hi, I find humidity and dew point have just as much effect as temperature. I'm on the east coast of the US this week / weekend, and I will not be riding. High 90s and high humidity are too much to...

I did not mean to be contentious. Perhaps my language was off, for which I apologize. I did not mean to offend. I was hoping for more of a discussion about saddle bag alternatives than the validity...

Wow, some of you are a cranky bunch. I explained I've had some bad experiences with saddle bags, and I was looking for alternatives (thank you for those who suggested such). I also saddle bags look...

I tried the Silca Premio, but it was highly problematic. The Boa would hold tight, but the roll would flip backwards around the boa and in some cases the contents would start dropped out. I also...

Saddle Bag Alternatives

Hi all,

I am a relative newbie to the Southern California riding scene (moved from much cooler, wetter Germany)! I've always hated saddle bags as I think they have no place on a proper road bike....

Thanks for all the great info! I'm actually in the NY area for work for the next few weeks but I'll look into all of this when I return.

I keep it in the flash setting. I think it's perfect in that it catches drivers' attention without being so bright as to blind them or offend them.

This SuperSix looks promising, but I will say it looks very similar to the BMC Roadmachine as well as some other recent bikes. It seems like designs are converging (especially in the aerobike...

My most recent purchase was a Light & Motion Vis 360 helmet light system. It features a bright headlight wired to a rear light mounted battery. I absolutely love it. I've noticed more interaction...

As I mentioned, I had a great fitting with Joe at Fit Werx in Ridgefield Park, NJ. They're expensive, but he literally takes 3-4 hours with you. I've also worked with some fitters in Europe, but...

It's tough to go wrong with riding in Italy, but I'd recommend either the northern lake district or Tuscany. Tuscany in particular seems well suited to road riding. I've also ridden far in the...

I mostly run tubeless and like it, but there are some pitfalls. I very much love the low pressures I run with tubeless (4.4 bar in 28s), which give a supple ride. I also have had good experience...

I find bib shorts are one of the most important factors in riding and that's why I'm not shy to spend money there. I've really had good experiences with Assos (not surprising) and Eliel.

I am a bigger guy, was over 100kg at one point. I rode 23s without a problem, but at high bar, meaning the ride was rock hard. I'd find every bit of width you can. Even fitting 24s might allow you...
