    Car guy and a "worker". I had at least one part time job during high school which allowed me to own one or more cars that I'd hop up.

    That's a good idea. Actually the Katy Trail dips southwest before KC to Clinton, Missouri towards Texas. In fact the T in KATY is for Texas as the old rail line headed there.

    This. I lived in Clovis NM which is near the Texas boarder back in the '70s. Tires weren't as good at flat protection back then. I used a product called "sticker flickers" or "tire savers". There's...

    A mountain bike might be overkill. Hybrids work very well for most people. Cross bikes also with somewhat fat tires. Like I mentioned above, my touring bike with 700x32 tires is great.

    I agree with njkayaker that BD's list prices are wishful thinking at best. It's the selling price that matters. The Mirage does have a carbon fiber fork which could be more expensive than the cheap...

    I have the older MiNewt Cordless 600 and 150 lights. Both have worked really well. I seldom use the 600 setting so I'd think that the 500 should be adequate. I really like putting the MiNewt 150 on...

    I just hold my thumb over where the bubbles are coming out. Then I'll use the sandpaper on that area to rough up the tube some. Pretty easy to find even after drying the area.
