    One thing I picked up after a while is to soft-pedal when coasting. Instead of stopping your feet, you keep them moving just under the speed that would engage the hub. That way, when you're back on the gas, it's nearly instant instead of that missed beat while your feet catch up.

    Nice to see someone actually listening to advice and trying to put it into practice.
    There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.

    I'm sorry. Let me put that into Br. English: Quite right, old boy.

    LOL. Where I come from, "quite right, old boy" would get you a smack in the mouth. But thanks for the thought.
