    Just a little. I had my Brooks saddle stolen from under my nose. I guess the thief had an allen key.

    "Cyclist" is a strange word with specific uses. I saw a Pan Am games headline that referred to a "mountain cyclist" which seemed weird like "track biker" would be. And when I'm commuting, I'm a...

    I have folding Kojaks and really like the smooth quiet ride. Unfortunately for you they are in 700-35. The Schwalbe One looks similarly light and smooth and is available in 700-28. Looks interesting....

    The only amazing part is that some things never change, even if they get old.

    While I think 'sarcastic' is a better description than 'smarmy,' I defer in all matters to your superior judgment.

    I would call those MUPs. In this neck of the woods, sidewalks have no provision for cyclists so I think we are talking in circles. BTW, and back to the initial post, I tried out an AirZound (Airzound...

    Quite true though around here it is illegal for adult-sized bikes to ride on the sidewalk. Regardless of the law (here sidewalk riding is covered under municipal bylaws) it seems that most...

    That has been my experience with Shimano XTs -- they are excellent and take no effort.

    I had BB5s and Avid Elixirs and they were both a PITA -- rub issues, hard to adjust, hard to bleed the Avids.
