Commute By Bike Is Back and Kicking It Live

by Bike Shop Girl

This past spring the original owner of Commute By Bike, Tim Grahl, had to make a tough choice. Out:Think, his web design business, was taking off much faster than a rate he could handle while trying to run Crooked Cog Network. Slowly the sites separated as Guitar-Ted took over Twenty Nine Inches himself and Commute By Bike became a static site.. Tim wanted to keep it around as a resource for all those trying to use their bike in a smart, commuter, way. Since April this site, Commute By Bike, has sat….patiently waiting.

Commute By Bike has a soft place in my heart. It is one of the view blog oriented review sites out there aimed to help people, help themselves. Yes, there are a lot of great cycling oriented sites out there but not many teach you how to use your bicycle to get around town, safe gas or safely carry your family to school.

It took longer than any of us would of liked but we are back. Under new ownership and our goal is to make you a happier, safer, commuter. Let us know what we can do, review, talk about to get you there and as always feedback is wanted.

  1. definitely commute by bike is in good hands, but it does need a pro team to handle it well

    Good to see Commute By Bike in good hands. When I heard that it was for sale, I considered trying to buy it. I already have myself pretty over extended and realized I’d never be able to give it the attention it needs.

    Congratulations on keeping what is apparently a helpful site going. Would appreciate seeing a name, address, phone on “About Us” or “Contact” page, clarifying who is behind site. Thank you, and best wishes.

  5. I used to love this site and have been patiently waiting to see it back up and running. I’m so glad to see you’ve taken over! I look forward to reading your informative and interesting posts! Thanks!

    Great to see the site live and rolling again, I’ve been missing it, cheers and good luck.

    Oops. Nevermindish. I got it working. It just required me clicking the “subscribe” button on your front page. Old school, but fully functional. 🙂

  8. dukiebiddle says:

    Internet Explorer 8 internal, which should search out all available feeds. For some reason I’m getting nothing.

  9. Dukie,

    My feed is working. What do you use to read?

  10. dukiebiddle says:

    There seems to be a problem with the RSS feed, which is critical. The posts have no feed. Bizarrishly, individual comment threads do.

  11. Bikejuju says:

    Yay! Welcome back. Just in time for those “what keeps you motivated to bike commute in the winter” posts.

  12. Andreas says:

    Fantastic news. This blog still came up really high back when I built my top 50 bike blogs list. I hope you will provide excellent new content to help out beginners with getting started. I agree with your point about the unique content. I guess that is what made it work so well.

  13. Thank you all for your kind words. If you have any topics you would like covered please let me know!

    Great to have some activity back here. Kudos for getting it back up and running. The reviews here were always worth checking out and I’m looking forward to seeing some more posted. Keep up the good work!

    I, too, have been visiting almost every day for the Bike Commuter News.

    Looking forward to Commute by Bike being live again!

  16. Scott R says:

    During the interim, I was here daily, regardless, for the “Bike Commuter News” in the sidebar.

    I’m looking forward to new original content and comment discussions.

  17. Glad to see that you’re back! This was always a great site to follow and it’s great to see it back in action!

    Glad to have you actively back!

    Looks like lots of new commuter bikes are being introduced, so hopefully the commuter bike database will stay part of the site.
