    hope this helps.

    I run my own bike shop and volunteer at our local bike co-op... teaching people how to repair flats and change tires is the first thing we teach people as it is the most common service issue there is.

    I consider this to be a pretty essential skill for any bike owner / rider.

    Those tires were a pain to get mounted but they really did improve the ride and the road speed of the bike...when tires get old and stiff they don't ride as nicely as they should even though they may look fine otherwise.

    The tires I used are just inexpensive City Cavaliers... they are a little heavy and a pain to mount but they do roll well and are resistant to flats... and they only cost $7.00 each.

    The reviews on them are also quite favourable... they aren't Schwalbe Marathons but few tires are.

    MEC also sells tires for less than almost anyone.

    One of my myriad 'Finishing Touches' is where my bike went today - it's been rainy and dismal. So up on the stand went Orkin for his new look - a lone Green spacer:

    Yes I have - that's where it came from. But be warned people - most of what they sell is trash that falls apart in your hands. I've heard nothing but complaints from people about their utter lack of quality-control. I figured they couldn't louse-up a spacer. Time will tell...

    That's a sweet looking bike Luddite. I especially like the Canadian flag. What kind of bike brand is that ?

    Yeah, I'm short. I'm like 5'3 with a 27.5 inch inseam. I'm on my tippy toes when I'm on the seat and have very little clearance when I'm over the top tube. This is a 15.5 inch frame also. Should I lower the handlebars more to be even withe the seat height?

    Nope, if it works for you, and is comfortable, it's just right.

    It sure looks "unique!"

    As a former hybrid rider (I now have a recumbent) I was curious to see what's out there in hybrids. Nice selection of bikes, with one thing in common; ALL of them appear to be immaculately maintained. As a firm believer in doing my own maintenance and that a clean and well maintained bike "just works better" I was pleasantly surprised. I'm not the only 'clean fanatic' out there.

    Kudos, folks, Y'all done good. bk
