    Tight clearance between the rear wheel and the seat tube is normal. On my size 50 I can barely squeeze my pinky between the tire and the tube, and that's with 23 mm tires. But I don't see why that...

    Well, the problem is that I don't really need a size 58 frame, since I already have more frames than I need, and size 58 is way too big for me anyway (even the 54 listed in my ad was on the large...

    Coincidence or not?

    I'm trying to sell a used carbon road frame on craigslist.

    Within 24 hours of each other, I get these emails.

    Hi,

    I have a 58 frame, brand is Scott team CR1, like...

    You can buy a 2/2 condo under 400k or rent one under 2k/month right in La Jolla Village.

    Under 400k, nowhere. Just took a look at the real estate listings, apparently housing went up substantially in the last 5 years or so. In 400k-450k range, you can do Santee or San Carlos (schools are...

    Absolutely not. If he has kids, all these are a big no-no unless he wants to explore intradistrict transfer & busing options, or he's willing to pay for a private school. (And, from the requirement...

    By "La Jolla", do you mean UTC/Sorrento Valley (the area along the 5 north of the 52)?

    Generally speaking, your demands are not reasonable. Precisely because six figure jobs are concentrated in...

    You rode from Arizona border to Carlsbad in 5th grade???

    Between SLO and Lompoc/Goleta, 1 is a typical highway, fast traffic, mostly farming and semi's, but not all that much of it. I think...

    Look at the first half of Solvang Spring Double Century, backwards Solvang Spring Double Century - A bike ride in Buellton, CA I think that's the only major alternative to the 1. And the 1 isn't...

    Interestingly, if you ask Google for a route via CA-138 (Palmdale-Riverside-Temecula), it turns out not to be that much climbier. 11850' along the coast vs. 14500' via CA-138. Though weather is still...

    I am not familiar with Central Valley routes, but the 138 E part is not a very good idea, there is quite a bit of traffic (you'll even end up riding on the freeway shoulder) and the overall route is...

    I'm not familiar with the area and I couldn't figure this out just from your description, can you point at the spot on Google Maps where you crossed the double yellow? Is it West River Dr. / MLK Jr....

    Seconded Ortega Highway. Closer to home, 78 between Wild Animal Park / Safari Park and Ramona, and S-2 between Solana Beach and Rancho Santa Fe.

    I'm not sure what's a J-wall (Google search gives me lots of links about a basketball player John Wall but not much else), but I mean a class I bikeway: at least something like the path along 52...

    Took a closer look at their proposals.

    They are not aiming for 25% mass transit / 18% bike everywhere. They are talking about "transit priority areas". The definition is complex but it essentially...

    OK, I'll play.

    * Grade-separated crossing over I-15 at route 56 / Ted Williams Parkway. At the present time, route 56 bike path terminates on the west side of I-15, and going further requires...

    Will. Not. Happen.

    25% mass transit will not happen, except possibly in high-density areas like the downtown. An average commute distance in SD is ~10 miles. In its present shape, mass transit is,...

    Last two years the aid station was just before the Cotharin turnoff.

    By the way, it's not quite "up Yerba Buena, then down Deer Creek." After you turn from Yerba Buena onto Cotharin, there's...

    Count me as skeptical. Expensive bikes are rarely worth as much as their MSRPs, even brand new. Resale value plummets from there, carbon warranty is usually non-transferrable, buyers ask too many...

    I'm not personally familiar with the area, but Olsen-Erbes looks well within my tolerance limits in terms of road condition and visible traffic in Google Street View (as long as it's not rush hour)....

    I saw some great results / improvements training 2 days/week. However, this means 2 days with lots of rest in between, not Sat/Sun (e.g. Tue/Sat), and it requires going all-out every time (which may...
