    I like seeing the wider tires, since for me "gravel" riding usually means "sand" riding.

    Love the lifeproof. Can run the thing through the wash cycle (multiple times) and it's still going strong.

    Man, looks really nice. I love the look of the curved top bar. How does it ride? I would be a bit afraid of the upright stance, but would love to try. Let us know it works out.

    No way. Denim I the absolute worst material for riding there is, IMO. I can't imagine it working. Other materials, maybe, but not denim.

    That new path is neat, for the few miles it is. It looks much better as you drive through, however, than it really is. As to the weather, I don't know how it is right now but I was up there 2 weeks...

    I've been guilty of chastising a fellow cyclist for riding the wrong way in the bike lane. Other than that, however, I try to keep my opinions to myself.

    Other than a new saddle, I have everything I need from upgrading my current commuter. Where my real quandary comes from is deciding between keeping the Novara as a rack-free MTV or taking the rack...

    New rescue, commute or mtb

    Walking the dog last night near our local university campus I came across an abandoned Novara Alpine. It is pretty rough, lots of rust, rotted tires, torn up saddle, but the shifters are good. It was...

    I'm not sure which is worse: not getting noticed or getting noticed and them not caring. I have dealt with quite a few such senior (or junior, as the case may be) moments. I get a secret pleasure...
