I would agree if it were not a homeless person. A lot of homeless people would love to spend a couple nights in jail. Free shelter and food. I guess it is probably the right thing to do though.

I don't know how you guys carry all that stuff on your back. I'm reluctant to carry a normal book bag with a book and some notepads. I feel like I'd need to keep a chiropractor on retainer if I...

More flexible, so they are less likely to sheer off like metal. And they are mad cheap so you won't get pissed when you snap these ones.

That being said, I would just get some more metal ones...

I don't know about that. I'm 6' and compared to the golden ratio I'm pretty proportionate (yes I've checked lol). I ride a 53 and I'm very comfortable on it. Even thinking about getting a slightly...

You like Tucson? The roads/drivers are awful there, I couldn't imagine riding a bike on them. Though, I do like it better than Phoenix.
