I like the Soho a lot. I don't think that I would buy one because I'm a fan of cross/touring bikes now, and I don't want the flat bars, but I still think it's a sweet bike :thumb:

Going commando - does this count?

FWIW, I didn't do well in highschool. I'm 29. I've had much, much older people in my classes (I swear one guy in my physics II class was in his 80's)...

Winterize a bike?

How do you protect the bike from getting too f'd up by snow/sand/salt? I've seen the words "frame saver," but I don't know what that is or how to use it or where to find it. What else is important to...
