    Mounted the tire last week, went for an 85 miler last Saturday in preparation for the big 108 miler middle of this month. Had about 4800 feet of climbing as well. This tire feels really good. It's...

    Looks like a nice saddle, have to remember to come back here when I'm looking for one. As far as care, wipe it clean with I assume just plain water so as not to dry it out, as long as it's kept...

    I'm in HB as well and ride quite often. There should be some loops in here you'll find interesting, I use the FREE version of RWGPS. The problem with HB is it's flat and if you want hills like...

    Ocean Blvd. in Long Beach between 710 on the west side and Livingston on the east side. To me the absolute worst in SoCal beach areas and I do Corona Del Mar all the time (been clipped in CDM once...

    It's great this information is kept here as I was able to go back and review everyone's input after purchasing a different tire (price point again). Really don't like it, getting too many flats...

    Depending on where you are and what variety is on Craigslist, 24" cruisers don't hold their value too much so you should be able to find something really nice for pretty cheap.

    Keep in mind...

    Thanks Ursa. I'll pencil the 2 days in, at first glance May 2nd is probably the best shot for me. I'll be in touch as it gets closer.

    Basic maintenance: keep the tires pumped up and the chain lubed (especially with your proximity to the ocean) and you should easily get 2+ years. Seems to me the 2 major things that wreck bikes are...

    Tough question in your situation. I wouldn't buy new but in your situation it might be your best bet, but at $250 that's pretty high for just a temporary bike. IF theft is a big concern buying a...

    +1 on the Butts on Bikes Group on Meetup though I disagree you looking for C rides, you sound like solid B or borderline A rider and they are good about sticking together. Although the C riders...

    /\ /\ Agree. Once or twice you might get lucky, but if you're going to commute regularly I think the odds will be against you in the long run. There have been bike jackings on the SART at 2pm in...

    Yea I saw you post this a few months ago somewhere, promptly started looking it up and it seemed weird most of the sites were Asian so I thought I was doing something wrong. Man I'd love to get a...

    I have to agree with suncruiser, the Walmart bikes often look like toys but your's is really nice. Way to go. I think the front bag and rear rack make it look longer and more appealing to the eye....

    What suggestions on lighter rims and tires? Agreed on the bearings being properly lubed and adjusted, makes a huge difference.

    "P.S. What seat did you buy?"

    Don't remember, some huge gel padded thing, my tush was tender back then! It's on the wife's bike now, it's too big for long distances and high speeds (spinning) as...

    Congrats on your bike purchase and hats off to your commute on that bike! You are a rare one who rides a bike like that that far. IF you keep your caloric intake in check, you'll burn through that...

    Hey Ursa, I'm thinking March is going to be better for me. Get your miles back up and be ready! Just a reminder, I don't have a fat tire bike so is this doable on a standard cruiser with 2.2-2.3"...

    Great idea. I sort of get it now. Seems like the same or near same gear inches would behave differently depending on the size of the front ring. Maybe not, maybe just me.

    Curious- that bada$$...

    Thanks surreal, that does help knowing the base for the idea, so my 44/17 * 26 = 67 gear inches. What does that tell me vs. other "numbers"?
    My other number 44/13 * 26 = 88 which is really high...
