    I just use a wet rag, a little shot of degreaser in spots if needed. Salt is corrosive to any metal and probably not good for CF either. Thankfully, salt is easily dissolved in water.

    Curious too. Been tempted by the Microsoft Band - HRM and GPS builtin. But the GPS software seems totally running-oriented, not sure how it works for cycling.

    I have a much better time in the city/dense urban areas. Its the suburbanites and rural rednecks you have to watch out for.

    Sales may tell you how popular an opinion is, but is a very poor indicator or which product is "best". Its more about marketing, product accessibility, pricing, etc.

    You might try 25s if they fit and increase pressure. Pinch flats should be mostly avoidable - new tires probably wont help.

    I took it more as your opinion on the technology, not if you are going to actually buy it. I'm pro both, but will definitely not own either until its something I could actually afford.

    Electric shifting isn't really new - its like 5yrs old now. Its just really expensive for a marginal gain. I would love to try it, but not for what it sells for right now.

    I read something similar too - actually at a slow to moderate rate, you burn the most calories per mile if I remember right. IMO, its better to think of calories per minute than per mile though.
