    Heltor Chasca Out-Riding the Black Dog

    Not daft in my opinion, but interesting judgement. Have you tried it? Method used by one of the U.K.’s top Audax cyclists (Andy Curran) and I tried it out over two long, back to back rides recently. It really made my world go round. A few podcasts and some music got me through the long draggy bits and out the other side of hanger and fatigue.

    And you know what? No one was harmed in the process.

    For the night riding, I recommend ‘Nocturne’ an American podcast for all things nightly.

    I was more concerned about it being anti-social especially at night time.

    Don't ever buy a bike with drop bars! Each to their own, but that's all a bit cluttered and OTT for me.

    I've just fitted a basic computer and that's overkill for me, normally I don't bother but having just swapped from three wheels back to two I want to see how I am doing.

  14. My commuter has got my busiest handle bars at this time of year and compared to the OP's it barren :okay:
    It has a cateye volt 400 and niterider lumina 450 either side of a headset mounted Garmin 130. When it starts getting lighter the two light are replaced by a small blinky and one of them will be carried in my bag. At the height of summer the blinky is in the bag too and its just the garmin 130. I have a virb but I prefer not having the distraction/ clutter :okay:
