    That looks like it was taken from the Pattullo Bridge, amirite?

    Ugh! You're making me homesick! :( :cry: I know that view well. I used to live just a little ways up and to the west of there. I DESPERATELY want to go back.

    Seattle clyde boy here, I commute from Seward Park to downtown Seattle via Beacon Avenue.

    Uhh... why would I be joking? You can't try stuff on you buy at Costco, that's why they have the nice return policy, especially for clothes.

    They're 700x32, but I'm happy with my Vittoria Randonneur Pros, even though I did get my first flat with them last night. They ride nice and have been amazingly resilient even as my daily commute...

    That's clearly a used bike. Look at how worn the tires are. And the rims have the wear strip showing. This bike has seen several hundred miles of road. And while I don't want to turn this into...

    They're still around, but just as big a ripoff as ever. You can get a full-custom Davidson (yes, complete with Bill's signature!) for what they charge for their Taiwanese, mass-produced,...

    My scale only reads in pounds. It doesn't read in kilos at all. And I was too lazy to do the conversion when I did the post. So there.

    More like a month and a half. The point is that I didn't have my lights until about mid-month so was restricted to daylight hours only.

    Again, more like a month and a half. And this daily...

    First month commuting numbers are in

    I commuted 320km, and I was limited to daytime hours for the first half because my lights hadn't come in yet. And I've lost nearly 20lbs.

    At this rate, I will reach my goal of riding 1,600km...

  14. It's not just transportation equality

    Sad indeed. Then again, every other kind of equality has been left behind entirely in America. America makes no bones whatsoever about the fact that it only cares about the 1%.

    More like half the cost considering the crazy expensive Seattle LBS prices. And you get SRAM Apex (if it's good enough for Alberto Contador, it's good enough for you) brifters instead of the cheesey...

    Nashbar sale item

    Clyde-sized bike gear can be hard to find, particularly winter stuff. When you can find it, it's spendy. But Nashbar has a hot deal on these bad boys. Available in Clyde-friendly sizes too. Bonne...

    Re-read my post. They said they could not even special order them because they were "exotic" and "European." And this was supposedly an "authorized retailer"!

    Crap. I wish I would have too. Something is wrong when it's cheaper to ship from Germany than from New Hampshire, and their price is about half of what ol' Petey wants.

    I just installed one. I've only ridden it a couple of times on well-lit city streets around twilight, but I can tell you that people thought I was a car coming, or at least a motorcycle. And it...
  22. Best alternative to cantilever brakes
