    I hit 47 once on a steep hill with 49/16. It sucked and was seriously not fun after a few seconds. I did not wuss out and hit the brake. Fortunately the hill was not very tall.

    I've been fixed gear MTBing for many years on an old 26er Redline Monocog. I don't know anyone else willing to try it. And people I ride with are blown away how I can maneuver fast through winding...

    I mostly agree. A good wheel is more than spoke count. It's about achieving a balance of minimalism, durability, and stiffness-ride feel that is appropriate for the intended purpose. At 195...

    Thats because its not a bolt pattern. Except for the center hole and the small hole closest to it, the rest are just holes with nothing in them.

    I often mail order stuff from LBSs that are less than 5 miles from my house. Internet prices are often lower than in-store prices and with occasional free shipping, why would I waste my time going to...

    Small businesses and the internet are not mutually exclusive. Good small businesses adapt. I shop at good LBSs all over the country in person and via the internet.

    NO...why would you think your car speedometer is calibrated?

    You need a real cyclocomputer that is calibrated to your wheel circumference to get an accurate measure of your speed.
