    I've got a cheapy Target pump that gets me to around 90psi before my arm gives out. It looks very similar to the Topeak Mini Morph. With tires rated at max 110, you should be fine riding at a lower...

    Had to get my cold weather gear back out. Some of the higher elevations around me are forecasting snow! I hope my fledgling veggie plants survive tonight in the garden.

    The ride was nice. Had two...

    I tried ebooks and went back to paper. It's a lot more comfortable to hold a paperback than an e-reader, and the battery never dies! :)

    tsl: awesome news! Post photos here of the finished product.

    Glad you weren't more seriously injured. Too bad about your wheel, but good that she agreed to replace it. You never know what a person will do, especially if her mind is somewhere else (probably...

    Amazing weather today, but I drove in as my cold has moved into my chest. Hopefully I get back on the bike tomorrow.

    Since you won't be taking it with you, I'd check the used market for a steel road bike in good repair. It shouldn't be too hard to find one in good shape for under $400. Make a bike shop checkup part...

    Managed to find a break in the rain to ride in. Mid 50s...I was hot in my rain gear. Very little traffic on the roads. I didn't realize so many places were closed today.

    I'm intrigued, but wonder how long it lasts and how much it costs. Reflective fabric and tape is pretty cheap.

    Definitely a planned theft. I don't think more locks would have helped. Just add some bolt cutters to the rebar and you've gotten through the u-lock and a cable lock.

    The hole doesn't look too big. I'd keep riding on it, but might put a patch on that spot of the tube as a bit of extra protection.

    Bike lanes make no sense in cities, where traffic speed is often the same or slightly higher as a bicyclist.
