    The rear tire (which was both cheap and previously used on another bike) started falling apart, too, so I pulled a previously-used Panaracer off of the ceiling and mounted it up. I should pony up for some 700x37 WTB All-Terrains. They would help when I decide to hit the trail on the way home.
    Sorry man

    But, at least you have a ton of spare parts.

    That would be the end of the pier at Jordan Lake, the closest boat ramp to my office is about an even 15km, so it's a 30km out and back of nice North Carolina rolling terrain on some narrow-ish road.

    Sweet!

    I'm just curious if I had ever been there before, but I don't think so

    That was probably the scariest moment of my life! The bikes and some stuff are on a long voyage through Panama right now, though.

    Cool! Not here, but we do get a discount on £1000/year of gear (up to 40%).

    However, I'm cheap, so that doesn't really affect me!

    I get some 40 euros per month for travelling expenses. Fixed. I live just over 10 km from work. I can use it for petrol, or bicycle parts, or a bus ticket.

    Sweet! We did have a "jobticket" in Frankfurt meaning that all buses/Straßebahn/S-Bahn/U-Bahn in the Rhein-Main valley were only €21/month!
