1.1 rims weren't really aero, just kind of a tall box; and at some point in their production they added the double eyelets presumably because of the cracking issue.

I love bananas, still carry one sometimes.

But I remember also having a bag of dried banana chips - those things really upped the energy level.

I would love to do RtR with my brother - we don't get to see each other much. I took him up Diablo, he lives in Denver and he should be able to share his mountains too.

John Howard claims it happened on his land speed record bike at <250kph - but I think he had 24" wheels.

ROKU worked fine.
So did my Android phone.

The phone must buffer a bigger chunk though because it's always behind the TV stream.

I submit that it's a 1 right now, and will eventually become a 10 if you keep riding it. The question is how many rides that'll be.

Are you waiting for financial reasons? In two months it'll be September - can you ride through the winter?

Maybe we should GoFundYou so you can get the bike sooner.

My only roundabout is really tight - one lane. People seem to know how to navigate it and they understand why I take the whole lane and the speed is pretty low because of the tight radius anyway.
