    Thanks for the feedback guys. I spun the wheel and it looks a little out of true so I'll take it to my LBS and have them true it and check everything else out.

There's no thumping sound while I'm riding, only when braking. Any ideas?
    one more suggestion: make sure your pads are toed in enough. I had pads that had worn so contact was totally flat and it gave a real oscillation upon breaking. adjusted the toe-in a tiny bit (folded business card) and the braking is smooth again. somewhere there is enough of a soft spot that the heel of the pad rubbing = oscillation, but otherwise my rim was totally fine (and true).

    What is this whole icy-hot on the knees thing? Does it actually help on cold mornings?

    Not icy-hot (brand) since it feels like someone put ice on your knees. No other "normal" brands for that matter (BenGay, Tiger balm, etc etc).

    Atomic Balm. And only in the dry for me.

    My take
    Joe's take

    I can handle Medium hotness all the time. Hot is way too hot.

    And put your shorts on before you put on the AB.

    What is it was US racers and black and other colored socks? Now that my eyes have been opened up a bit, I'm really used to tall, new and perfectly white socks and white shoes.

    Time for a new helmet thanks to my crash yesterday.

    I can get a big discount at Rudy Project. I can get the $150 Zuma for $90. Or I can get the Kontact+ that I've been using for my last couple helmets for $105.

    Considering my discounts, is there any reason to try a Giro or Bell? Or should I just keep going with the Rudy Project.

    One of the 2 screws on the hanger was lose, but, alas, the creak remains.

My Felt had squeaking, creaking, and groaning for the first 1K miles. I did all of the above, and now it's quiet.
    QR skewers are both retightened, stem bolts were checked, pedals were unscrewed, greased, and replaced, and I still have noise.

    Why would I keep my shoes clean? That's almost as silly as shaving legs or removing my frame pump.

    I may not have been totally clear. Slather everything, including the machined sides of dropout and frame, with antiseize and/or lube. Not just screw.

    It's the movement of dropout against frame that can make noise.

    You were clear, and that's what I did. But I still have a noise problem. Guess it's time to invest in more tools.

    wouldn't have been a problem on the road. The skewer keeps it in place.

    Have you messed around with your cables? sometimes housing creaks

    Test drove the Honda Insight the the Toyota Prius today. The Insight felt like a Honda Civic with no power. The Prius felt like Lexus hybrid. We're getting a Prius. With Nav. Gold, so it matches our dog Sam.

    They have zero percent financing. That helps.

    first crash today; low speed maneuvering in some deeper-than-it-looked gravel. Baselayer saved my elbow (which took the hardest impact) from any gravel/road rash. Someone should tell everyone about these things.

    Pulling gravel bits out of the leg wounds in the shower is an experience I can live without repeating. This will probably convert me into a leg-shaving type as soon as I'm able. The blood-matted hair is a pain.
