That's not what I asked. I asked if you thought that ALL private property should be subject to confiscation at the drop of a hat or just cars. You now state that you don't agree that it should....

By the way, wars and accidents are both preventable.

That's a great looking bike at a really nice price. Seems strange though that a quality frame and fork cost less than a set of bar ends! I sure wish that somebody would introduce a reasonably...

A tire will often pick up a nail, causing a slow leak that's not apparent until much later. The nail will partially seal the hole and you won't notice the air leak until you come back to get your...

Shimano SLX cassettes have some wide ranges (to 34 or 36 teeth I think). You'll need a long cage derailleur but these should work with your 105 crankset.

You're my new hero. I've had a few that went to double digits but none with 19 patches. With all the goatsheads out here I'd be spending a couple hundred a year on tubes if I didn't patch them.
