    Any bicycle enthusiasts on here? Deciding on a cheap commuter bike?

    Hard to say, as other parts of the geometry, like top-tube length and handlebar shape, can have a big effect on riding position comfort. Can you check out the 54 cm model and potentially make some adjustments when you do? Also, make sure you've got adequate stand-over height; inadequate height =...

    Any bicycle enthusiasts on here? Deciding on a cheap commuter bike?

    I ride a Redline 925 as my around-town bike. Everything is bolted on so it takes work to pull stuff off, steel frame, flip-flop single-speed hub, fenders, and chain guard. I love it. And yes, I said "chain guard." No banana seat, though. Oh, did I mention that it cost less money new than a DIY...

    Because I have chickens, and lights

    And perhaps most importantly, you have at least one chicken-sized bow tie.

    Sparring highlights

    No shin guards?! You’re a braver man than I, Bobby.

    In other (personal) news...

    Congrats, and Happy New Year! Although my experience is in the area you left (science), I have a couple of thoughts for you. Good, this is really important. I’m not sure how much leeway you’ll have to select the rest of your PhD committee, but I’d suggest looking for people without egos...

    Fuji Let's start talking about the X-Pro 3

    I'm curious, but do you (or does anyone else) happen to have hard numbers on the incremental cost screen-articulation or -flipping adds to cameras these days?

    Fuji Let's start talking about the X-Pro 3

    Man, Fuji keeps doing things to tempt me into their system! I really like the combo of the hybrid finder plus the flip-out LCD; I even like that it’s normally flipped in. It’s the lack of a tilting or articulating touch screen that has so far kept me from buying an X-E3, although I’ve nearly...

    Canon Canon G1X III: Finally, a huge step forward for the G X series ...

    Thanks, guys, for the info. It would be nice if it could be set to remember the focal length when in the standard PSAM modes, but, that’s not a deal-breaker. As with most cameras these days, I'm pretty sure I’ll usually be the limiting factor, not the camera. We’ll see if I end up with one of...

    Not helping, Matt. Seriously, thanks for the good info. That's a pretty great level of control, from my perspective. Almost like someone intended the camera to be a photographic tool or something....
