    Donald Trump used to organize a 2-week pro bicycle race around the eastern USA. Why not ask him to bring it back? That will probably be much simpler than bringing the Tour de France to the USA.

    I never get frequent flats with Gatorskins. I usually run these down to the cords without getting any flats or at most 1 flat in 4000 miles. Yes, my roads do have a good amount of debris and potholes.

    A road bike will be faster on long hilly rides. Not so much on short flat rides. Beginners often find that hybrids are more comfortable (at least on short flat rides).

    No replaceable battery is an issue if you like long continuous videos.

    On the other hand, the big on/off switch on the top of the camera makes it easy to capture a series of short video clips.

    The main problem with cheaper helmets is that can be hard to fit due to fewer sizes and fewer adjustments. Try them on; maybe they will work for you. Some of the cheaper helmets at bike shops odo...

    How much are they charging? $1/month? $10/month? $100/month? If I was paying $100/month, I would be upset, not so much for $1.

    Many cheaper helmets are one-size-fits-most. Size charts for these helmets are usually bogus. If your head is significantly larger or smaller than average, then it is probably a good idea to avoid...

    I prefer handlebar tape without glue. If you mess up installing, you can easily unwrap a little and try again. The tape should be stretchy enough to hold in place if you wrap it tight enough.
