    I had a number of small cuts on my tire (2-3mm). They were surface cuts only. A reminder that you should check your tires for more serious damage frequently.

    I have Boyd Vitesse wheels and like them very much with 7k miles on them. The freewheel is noisy if that matters.

    I was impressed with the 80 year old "wuss" I chatted with. He had a nice Trek road bike and still does 100 miles per week. I wouldn't mind being that wuss.
