    Make sure you ask for it to be bullet proof but easy to mount.

    I generally don't use tires when I run.

    I must say that's quite the inaccurate image. We get stormy winter days, sure, but I wouldn't call them bleak. The sun always comes out soon thereafter.

    A London winter, now I've always pictured that as bleak.

    Thanks, finally a concise difference between the two that my feeble brain can grasp, and possibly retain.

    seems weird to me. i dunno. i'm not sure i'm ok with it. when heath ledger died in the middle of filming stuff they worked around it. i hope it really is just "filler".

    When Marty Feldman died during the making of Yellowbeard​​, ​they introduced a stand in for one scene that was obviously not Feldman, and immediately killed him Tragically, it was one of the funniest moments in the film.

    Still deciding. Lemond is kinda harsh compared to the Raleigh, which borders on whippy. I kinda like bordering on whippy, though.

    Still gotta put some decent tires on the Lemon to see if that helps. Maxxis Refuse 25s are pretty bad after running around on Clement Strada LGG 28s for a while.

    I guess I'll @SpeshulEd for my tire review. Clement Strada LGG 28s (dual compound) and Michelin Pro 3 in 25 are pretty much tied for my favorite tires, still haven't tried the Pro4s yet, though.

    That is a beautiful bike just the way it is. Leave it the hell alone. Good thing girlfriends don't come with swappable components. (I realize what I just said is open to interpretation but I can't think of a better way to say it right now.)

    @Heathpack, et al, here is a link to the beginning of the 180 days of poems. Which is not to say there are not also short stories and other nonsense plunked in. But, wait a minute. On the days I posted a short story I didn't also post a poem so... Now I've confused myself. In any case, that's a good place to start since that's where the blog begins. As with all poetry, mine comes with the caveat that it's not all rainbows and sunshine.

    I don't think so. At least I've yet to notice.

    To be honest, I have a limited amount of knowledge about tires. My Fuji came stock with some cheap kendas. They were quickly replaced with GP4000s. My Cannondale came with Scwhalbe Ultremos. I'm currently running those on my fixed gear, GP4000s on the cannondale, and gatorskins on the Fuji for commuting. I have to say the GP4000s are my favorite out of the group but I haven't tried the Pro3/4's yet or any of the other nicer ones.

    Also, sorry, I didn't really mean to turn this into tire talk. I have 5 sets of GP4000s in various sizes yet to work through before I buy any new tires.
    Hey guys, lets go play bikes!

    The Pro4s are the best tire out there. They're the Pro3s with puncture resistance. Down side is they're expensive and don't last long enough.

    Try them. I used to use GP3000s and 4000s.

    The first 500 miles or so on a fresh set of Pro4s is butter. I was thinking about that this morning, on an early ride that was ten degrees colder than predicted again. Idiots.

    Anyway, that psimet order will go in this week, so the 50/58s will get new Pro4s and the Record cassette from the UK. Excellento.
