I've had a LOT of tires on my commuters in the past six years, right now I've finally found bliss. That is the 700x42 Marathon Dureme aired up to about 65PSI. They roll fast, forever, and...

No idea the exact mileage, but every week in Feb I've been over 100 (more like 150-200), all outside. All in the cold.

Is it spring yet? Please???

I really can't be anything but jealous about almost 32mpg on winter gas with 4wd. All I can is suspect that you drive with a lighter foot than I.

Although for a real challenge, come see if you...

I definitely resemble this. But, as I grow older that has changed into "oh eff it, take my money" :)

I concur completely. My body reacts oddly to both carbs and sodium, so I have to have very little of both. I can do everything identical two weeks in a row, but if I have too many carbs and sodium...

Actually - no, no it's not. It's science, calories in vs. calories out. Once you find your RMR through either a test or just experimentation it's simply calorie consumption vs. calorie burn. When...

The most fun I've ever had trying a bike was a Redline Monocog, and I still harbor some heavy "want"s for a single speed. Not sure about fixed, but a single speed is definitely on my radar.

Finally, goodbye to the Uber

For those who haven't followed much, in 2005 I was around 572 pounds. Got down in the 350's in 2009, ballooned back up to 471 in Feb of 2012. During all of those times it seemed like being back in...
