    I commute into the city via Caltrain, it takes a very long time to get where I need to go, two hours one way, and I imagine it will take you close to the same amount of time via BART or Caltrain.

    the Mid-Pen rangers are on St. Josephs Hill in Los Gatos fairly often during the summer with their radar guns. Not sure how many tickets they hand out, and not interested in finding out.

    I didn't really think the climbs were too miserable, I was having a great time on the two Kings Ridge rides.

    can you use a hacksaw to just cut the bolt? Is there space between the area that supposed to slip over the bars? You could tap it, but there's gotta be an easier way.

    chamois cream should be added to the list.
