    Plastic reflectors works better when riding in mist too.

    It looks like the state laws allow you to just have a decent light with no mention of rear reflectors except for new bike sales. NYC...

    Laws vary but amber should be fine for front or rear. At night, you would need a red light either instead of, or in addition to an amber rear, but I've seen very little reason why an amber can't be...

    I think I see what you mean. It seems I've only heard them riding better. I do remember someone saying that they learned to stop unweighting the seat on bumps with their BD. It was described more as...

    For starters, a very close shade to the one found on the jersey is "desert pink" and is used as camo. I have never seen day glo camo in use.

    I'm fine with pink and the kit. It's "ironic" but...

    I have no idea how many miles are on mine and they aren't quite done for, it just seemed like I noticed wear much quicker than other tires. Relating to your post, the rear position is wearing much...

    Thanks for the comparison. If I didn't have so many hills I would have bought big apples by now.

    The Continental Sport Contact comes in a 1.6" 80 PSI. Not the longest lasting tire but I like them....

    I think the lopsided B17 CS pictured above is officially retired. I think maybe I hadn't realized how it had gradually become more and more uncomfy. I may try the soaking and tennis ball trick since...

    So, some of you are suggesting that the tube pops and the release of energy unseats the tire from the rim?

    I'm going with the majority here, most likely an improper tube installation.

    Just to throw it out there, and for documenting, what kind of rims do you have? Is the rim true (no major hop)?

    I used to think I was OK with 20+mph but getting it straight off the sea is a different deal, it seems.

    Release tension on the shifter cables by shifting, it can't hurt. A well greases seat post should have no problem over winter stored in climate control.
