    Went to the dollar store, picked up a couple gallons of milk. Was only a few miles each way, but it's the first non-leisure ride since I got hurt last summer.

    It was awesome.

    I've noticed a lot of VO's parts were made, and sold out quickly. Are they not making any more of these? Was it a one-shot manufacturing run? I'd love to get a set of 50.4 cranks, or even the fluted...

    I've got an LED dyno headlight, a 4W LED is about equivalent to a 20W halogen in light output. There are ways to do it cheaply, but the off-the-shelf stuff nowadays is really good.
