    I have some 2.35" balloon tires (not schwalbe unfortunately) and usually inflate them to 40psi, and then don't reinflate them for awhile. They definitely get down to 30 or less. If I had wider rims...

    I don't think I've ever seen a pannier that won't fit a gallon of milk unless it's one of those specifically labeled as 'mini' pannier.

    does philly have a bikeshare program? those look like bikeshare type bikes. That's kinda my one main concern with bike sharing. People are clueless enough about most aspects of life. Now take someone...
