Since Chris Pringle obviously isn`t very good at boasting, I want to point out that the SR series he set up was in a country that previously had no ACP affiliations, had never had a single official...

Officially, registration depends on where you live (generally by state in the US). Unofficially, I get the impression that most people ignore the law. If you go the official route, I suspect you...

Cool paint job- I don`t think I`ve seen that on a factory Trek. Is it a redo, or was it born that way?
Your butt and your back will love the racks and bags.

I`ve been using Shimano dynohubs for five or six years now on my commute. Love`em. Since I already have them, I use them to tour also, but would probably just stick with battery lights if I didn`t...

They call that "radial" lacing, and since it`s the fasionable way to do things these days, radials are maybe more common than traditional style for the front. Whether that or crossed is "better"...

Sounds good, but most of the other Cyclists I see are screaming along at like 15MPH or better :lol:

Anyway, congrats on the just ridden century and have a good time on the permanent.

Beating the owner in front of his dog often sounds appealing too.

If the wheel actuially did slide out of the slots, as I read in the first post, it sounds that way to me too. I agree with VT Speed- probably not a set up all around. Although it would require some...

Maybe SO works a control. If he or she is a people watcher or sociable type, it`s a nice way to spend at least a good chunk of the day.
