    Glad to hear you and the Ridley are intact other than a scratch and ego bruise. :D! I trust you protected the bike with your body ;). It does seem one can only do that in front of an audience. I've...

    Maguiar's Quick Detailer for touch up. Mother's Car Wash, and Turtle Wax T-9 Wax and Dry to finish. I figure if it's made for high-end automotive finishes, it should work fine on the bike.

    Lol, the American Idol syndrome. Adding vocal acrobatics seems an ego thing. It just gets in the way of the song.

    A large, but privately owned LBS carries them along with Specialized, Moots, Surly, and others, so they get a lot of traffic. Being in an area with 12 month cycling helps, too ;)
