Which bike do I want?

How to make a road bike less twitchy?

Does the types of handlebars change the handling of a bike? I have a 80's Lotus International road bike. It's my commuter, grocery getter, and all-weather bike. However, it does not handle grocery-loaded pannier bags nearly as well as my "nice bike" surly cross check does, which is my century bike and my touring bike. I don't want to lock the surly outside of the store or subject it to the daily wear and tear. I am thinking about making changes to make my Lotus handle more stable-ly. Is there anything i can do? Different handlebar? wider tires? longer stems?

Best route for overland commute in NYC

I live at the top of Central Park in New York City (my park entrance is at 110th and Lenox), and I'm thinking of either getting a bike or rollerblades to commute to my job at 23rd and Fifth (or, perhaps more accurately, to my gym at 23rd and Park, where I can shower and change). What's the most direct path through the park from top to bottom, and which streets should I take to my destination once I exit the park? [more inside]

Right ski roof rack?
