    Whenever I used bar ends - before crossing over to recumbent bikes - mine were generally pointed more forward than upward.

    He says he used to be 54" inches tall (4' 6") and is now 5' 11 1/4". 5' 4" would be a stretch (ha! ha!) to believe but 54" is just amazing!! Really amazing!

    I was 3 feet tall at one time and am...

    I would ask whether you preferred the Beatles or the Stones but you're too young for that question.

    My thousand+ commuting miles this year have been much more recreational than driving a car to work on those bike-commuting days.

    A 5 minute increase weekly sounds very conservative - imagine you would have no problem ramping activity up a bit faster. But, as BobbyG says "any activity is a good plan compared to none."

    Still in the 50's today but rainy - thought I could get in a ride between rain clouds but weather.com mislead me - only rode 4 miles before it became Too Wet to Continue.

    Don't remember ever hearing of cyclists, either on- or off-road, being shot by hunters in Indiana state parks. Or hikers, for that matter.

    Making me feel 50+ and then some. But making you look really Retro. I started wearing digital watches in 1981. The Young People don't wear watches anymore, for the most part.

    Absolutely correct that a funky cut would not affect a seat post but it would bother many people no end. More of a real (mostly aesthetic) issue with a handlebar end than the bottom of a seat post.

    You sure you want a fixie and not a singlespeed with a freehub/freewheel? Equally low maintenance, if that is your primary goal.
