    In the OP, you don't specify the temperature, so I'll cover all my bases.

    In summer, I wear sandals and don't care too much if I get soaked (I don't even need a change of clothes, since I don't do...

    Well it took a couple weeks but I solved the mystery. I'm sharing it here just in case someone else runs into this problem.

    It occurred to me that the rim strip might be the problem. It isn't adhesive, and doesn't even feel like rubber; more of a nylon compound. The one area of one strip looks heavily depressed, and...

    This really blows

    In the last two weeks, I've blows exactly four tubes -- three in the rear wheel and one in the front. Each time, the tube looked like it was ripped open, not like a clean cut or puncture. All four...

    When I first got my Edelux II, I regretted not getting a Luxos U for the usb port. But now that I've switched to a Galaxy S6, my original choice is just as well.

    Hot Deals

    This is my favourite time to shop for next year's winter outerwear. I know three local stores that sell off old winter stock for half price during the warmer months. Anybody have a favourite...

    This is a common complaint --that the road is a shared resource that should not be given over to cars. But giving most of the road to cars is commensurate with the way most people get around. It is...

    So I installed iTunes on my laptop, and thought I would plug in my iphone 5 and, you know, do stuff with it. Problem is, the computer doesn't react to the phone. It doesn't exist as far as my...

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. You didn't say you were on a divided highway, but the words "high speed" threw me off. So what you meant was a main arterial road through the city.

    How often do you see municipal buses on a multi-lane highway? Are you riding down the expressway through town? Something about this doesn't add up.
