I have a Hemlock getting delivered today. I'll post on the straps. From my understanding, they claim that they don't "need" a sternum strap, but I was concerned about the lack thereof also.

Could it be a creak? I swore something was wrong with my rear hub, then my stem on my Cypress, only to realize my seatpost bolt needed tightening. Man I cussed at that bike a lot before I figured...

That's odd -- I heard mine more at home than riding. Is the noise definitely coming from the hub body/axle area?

I've used the cheap ($40-$50) "Spin Doctor" stand from Performance's house brand with good luck. It folds up, too. The Park looks more solid, but out of my budget (plus the SD was a gift).

Yup, my rubber ones don't move, and they make noise. Annoying noise: http://nbbb.wordpress.com/2009/08/12/it-might-just-be-your-weather-seal/

I hate to ask a dumb question, but when the wheel "hops," is it with the reflector? Mine do that, so i take the reflectors off when I true the wheels.

FWIW, a bolt-on collar seems to have fixed it (knock on wood). I think the weird clamp just didn't put enough pressure in the right place. Thanks for all the help though folks. :)

I talked about Shoe Goo and fixing a tire once, and a family member picked me up some at like Walmart or Target or something in the shoe dept. It wasn't black, but it works (and STINKS!).

Also, you can rig something up to get the fender stays attached. I've had luck with very very thick zip ties and coated P-clamps.

I switched from 35s to 32s, and these particular tires were actually faster. I guess it depends on what you get. FWIW, the faster 32s are Continental City Rides. Faster tires weren't what I was...

I think Dahoyle nailed it. If my rims can take my fat a$$ riding all over town on them, I don't think the weight of a bike would kill them. :)

I've gone 1000 miles without a flat, gotten three in a week and then gone another 1000 without a flat on the same set of tires before. Could be the moon or, as someone suggested, sunspots:)
