I don't know about yearly average, but per-ride average is around 18-21mph. Disclaimer: Illinois is flat and the longest climb is no longer than 5 minutes.

Tight bottom bracket, slipped tool damaged teeth :(

For whatever reason, I felt the need to take the bottom bracket out of my 1998 GT LTS last night. I applied plenty of penetrating oil, but I don't know how much of a difference it made. The drive...

My dad gets this often, even though he makes $93,000/year.
As for me, I'm an entry level salesman in a chain store. Not much out there for a 19-year-old, but the job is pretty fun.
