Removable bike bags...

Looking for bags or similar things that can attach to a bike and easily (without tools) be removed that I can carry stuff in. I currently have a MEC frame bag but it's insufficient, space-wise. I'm also familiar with the Detours bags, but they only carry 5 lbs. Suggestions...? It's important to me that when the item is off the bike, its fastening system isn't still on the bike (like a basket or panniers). Also, if I can throw it over my shoulder (when not on the bike) that's even better. [more inside]

Fight or flight?

I've put on 20 pounds since I started my full-time desk job a year ago, and the time has come to get myself back in to shape. Research has brought me two preferable possibilities: a few days a week, either start taking Krav Maga classes (during my lunch break), or start commuting to work by bike instead of driving (15 miles each way). I have no experience with either, live in Boston, work north of Boston. Help me pick the right path. [more inside]

Help me build a small, light, battery-powered time-lapse photography rig?

I'd like to do a time-lapse movie of photos taken every 30 seconds during a week-long, 500 mile ride I'm doing later this year. But the rig has to be small, light, automatic, and run for hours a day without a recharge. Is this possible?

How do I rate/review cycling products?

I was recently asked to review/rate some new cycling products (frames, pedals, saddles, etc...) for my friend's blog and I'm trying to figure out a good set of overall criteria to base the reviews on. Something like this: Criteria 01 Criteria 02 Criteria 03 Criteria 04 Overall Score Any suggestions as to what I can base my reviews on? I was thinking build quality might be one good criteria, but I'm struggling for more.

Lonely Labor Day weekend cycling suggestions outside Seattle?

We're in the process of moving to Seattle (I'm here, the fam is still back east) so I'm solo this Labor Day weekend (sadly, no invites) and am looking to get on my road bike *outside* the city trails and enjoy some of the surrounding Washington landscape. I'm looking for 30-50mi ride suggestions (can be longer if not so hilly) that have the fewest cars and the nicest views (mountains, farms, rivers, etc) without Tour de France climbs. [more inside]
