So there I was sitting at my desk thinking….

Gee, in the past year we’ve covered quite a bit of commuter related info. Things about the rules of the road, using an IPOD while riding, fixing things, industry news, product reviews, how to’s and many more.
Which brings me to my point, what would commuters really want to know about?
Well, you tell me. Leave us a comment on what subjects you’d like to learn more about and we’ll do all the leg work for you and post some sort or article or something.
Or if you have some sort of subject you’re purdy gu’d bout’ then let us know. For example, I LOVE and KNOW buffets. So I could post about what makes buffet good. But since this is a commuter site, eating at buffets don’t really count.
pier fishing
Another subject I’m purdy darn gu’d bout’ is pier fishing. Well to be honest Randy was the one that taught me how to pier fish. But anyhow, I’m so gu’d that I could talk all about how using one hook is better than using a sabiki rig and how you should use squid first to catch your bait, then use a fresh fish as bait to get bigger fish.
See, how simple that was? I gave you some tips on how to pier fish. Well, that’s what we’re looking for. We want to hear what matters to you, the commuter.

    I’ve been visiting your site for the past few months and just wanted to tell you how helpful it’s been. After having lived in Berkeley, CA & NY, NY (where I used my bike all the time) I now live and commute to work…in Athens, Greece. My commute is about 12 miles roundtrip. Keep up the good work and thanks for the site.

    I’ve been reading your blog for quite a while now and enjoy it. I like to read about the different types of commuting bicycles.

    I have a 37 mile round trip commute that I started biking last September. It got too cold over the winter to keep up the riding and a serious amount of overtime has kept me from commuting this year.

    I would like to learn more about good ways of keeping warm in the winter.

    I would also like to learn about commuting with a recumbent bicycle. Since I have such a long way to ride I think it would be easier on my butt if I rode a recumbent instead of a road bike.

    Going home from work starts with an 8 mile ride straight west and generally into a strong headwind. I think a recumbent would allow me to keep my speed up when riding home.

    Jeff, I will be riding to work on the EZ-1 recumbent by Sun Bicycles. Stay tuned for an upcoming review.

    Jeff: how cold do the winters get where you are? I never let low temperatures keep me off my bike in New York winters, so I probably have some useful tips for cold weather riding. I’d be happy to write an article about staying warm.

  5. Jeff says:

    I’ll be looking forward to the recumbent review.

    I live in central Illinois. The temp this winter was below 0F for a week or so, but I probably wouldn’t attempt to ride in that type of temperature.

    I did ride to work the first two work days this year, but my feet were extremely cold. I use clipless pedals and would prefer to keep them during winter riding.

  6. Nick says:

    I’ve not yet had the pleasure of riding in sub-zero temperatures – the lowest we got here in NYC this winter was 18-20s – but I wouldn’t step down from it. My 20-degree riding outfit on my torso was a long-sleeve thermal and a windbreaker, so put a sweatshirt between those two layers, and you’d probably be good to go in lower temperatures, just as long as your mouth, nose and ears are covered. As for the shoes, try some neoprene toe covers or booties. I’ve never used them for warmth, but I managed fine by doubling up on socks.
