    I'm rockin' the Dinotte Quad 4 Red - stead on after dark, flashing during the day. I'm very pleased with it; if I lost it today, I'd have another on order tomorrow. Not cheap, but IMO worth it for...

    A couple of months ago I hit 55; wasn't really planning on it, but the downhill was wide open, with no traffic, fairly decent surface, and plenty steep enough (parts of this road exceed 13%). I was...

    Haven't noticed a problem with the frames bothering my ears (yet - I've probably jinxed myself and it'll be all I can think of on the ride home tonight :lol:). Oh, and I do have the yellow lenses...

    Many years ago (back in the 90s) I was a summer-only commuter. I bought a pair of REI house brand (Novara) shorts sometime in the spring. The shorts failed before the end of the summer (I can't...

    +1 on the Rudy Project (Rydons) with insert. The only complaint I have against them is fogging in winter. The insert makes it impossible to clear the condensation by wiping (without removing the...

    I'm in California, 33 degrees is winter; a particularly cold winter.

    Well, actually it occasionally drops below freezing, but not often.

    Probably the worst thing to do to any vehicle with an internal combustion engine, well, maybe driving around with the oil drain plug missing might be worse, but this one is really bad.

    One of my coworkers recently bought a house about a mile and a half from me; it's on my way to the MUP I use for 10 miles of my 15 mile one-way commute. I've gotten her to join me once or twice a...

    The last time I did Mt D, I (literally) ran into huge swarms of bugs right before the wall. This was in mid-April, and I don't recall it being right after a rain. Your bugs, I presume?

    Of course it's raining . . . I just cleaned my bike and replaced my chain on Sunday :notamused:. I think I'll go to work as a drought-buster.

    Three words: You da man!

    Even though I really don't need anything, I may order something anyway.

    Thanks again, to you and Curtis.

    Last summer I planned to take off work a few hours early on a Friday afternoon and extend my normal 15-mile one-way commute home. Unfortunately that Friday coincided with one of the hottest days of...

    I've used off-branded 16-gram CO2 cartridges with my GI Ultraflate and Proflate for several years now. Never a problem with either inflator. Never noticed a difference between CO2 cartridge brands...

    Another vote for the Take-a-Look. I've used their glasses-mounted version since the '90s. Good quality, very sturdy, and easy to adjust precisely. I've tried a helmet-mounted mirror (Hub Stub or...

    I buy tubes when they're on sale. I probably have one to two dozen. When I have a flat, I just put in a new tube, and put the old tube in the pile of "tubes to be patched". Then once a year or so...

    I said it before in another of your threads on this topic: "Too cool; just way too cool."
    Kudos to everyone involved in this project. You should all be very proud of the job you are doing.

    No doubt I overdid it That's kind of my point; sometimes the first ride feels pretty good :thumb:, but then, the second ride . . . not so much :eek:.

    Good thinking right there. I'm always amazed that more people don't do this. I don't buy new bikes (or wheels) very often, but one of the first things I do is verify I can dismount and mount the...
