    It sounds like a fun event. I am thinking I might reserve vendor space next year and show up with my Campagnolo- and Stronglight-pattern triplizers. Or would that be sacrilege? Maybe truly heroic...

    I wish I could go--maybe next year. I have always wanted to go on a bike tour in New Jersey--no kidding, it's a state that I love for its lack of pretense. In leading commercial bike tours in...

    The benefit to Evaporust is that you don't have to dispose of it, and you can use it over and over and over. Probably cheaper in the long run if you treat a frame or two a year. And because it...

    Well, sand makes sense, because isn't sand the most abundant element in the earth's crust? When I was in grade school, we had to memorize the top ten elements in the earth's crust. Iron is up there,...

    Too true. It's an amazing product--works fast, won't damage aluminum. Worth more than what it costs, which isn't really much to begin with.
