    The only time I'm not comfortable is when it is both cold and raining at the same time. Everything else is cool. I even prefer cold in some sick way - I can take layers off to stay comfortably cool -...

    As a local, I can say that what Serbs have been doing to Albanians since 1990 has been really bad - apartheid.

    But that doesn't justify doing the same thing to Serbian civilians. NATO bombing was...

    Civil war, as dirty as they come. Practically supported by the "west", while rhetorically opposed.

    The bombing was still a diry terror of civilians, mostly.

    USA bombed my city. We didn't attack USA. They said it was to protect some people 600 kms to the south. But they didn't protect them. Just destroyed bridges and terrorized people. Not very nice IMO,...

    All my commuting bikes have a rack (for carrying backpack and panniers) and mudguards (for rainy days and puddles). I like to ride in work clothes whenever it is convenient.

    Thread is not crafted to suit pavement irregularities. It's not like studs diging into soft ground.

    In my area there is little snow and ice. I got a pair of Schwalbe Marathon Winter studded tyres and they are seldom used. I could do almost just as well with regular knobby tyres....
