    I've had similar issues running Schwalb Marathon Winter studded (700x35), sliding out completely once (on concrete). Fortunately all the winter garb cushioned the fall nicely. :-)

    What? You don't like wringing out your gloves and leaving a puddle when you get to work? :-) A couple more months will solve the problem, unfortunately....

    Whoa, I wasn't expecting to find a Sadistic thread in C&V. :-) But yeah, a South Dakota cousin and I planned on the 100 mile route but ended up with the metric century. I came down with a cold last...

    Waterproof in such conditions isn't needed, but a breathable windproof shell is. Even the "breathable" aspect is iffy as I've arrived at my location and frost has built up on the inside of the wind...

    My daughter and I got out for 33.4 miles on the tandem. She had to work in the afternoon or we'd have probably done a half century ride with a lunch stop along the way. :-)

    If I've got time, which I usually do, and can find the leak, I prefer patching in this manner. That saves the spare tube for a true emergency, like a tick-or-mosquito infested area, rough...

    I got asked about my golf score once when someone saw my pale hands. I flinched and had to set them straight.

    My daughter was pretty concerned heading off to college for the first time because...

    I go for the naturally decorated look and don't clean off the earth worms. It's a bonus if they wrap around the spokes and dry up. I don't see too many bikes on the rack that can compare.

    As many have mentioned, the humidity is the killer. 2-3 summers ago we had some mid-90 days with dew points in the lower 80s (yes, in MN), and the heat index peaked at 119F. I biked 30+ miles home...

    Growing up in a small western ND town, the only hockey I saw was during the Olympics. I didn't understand it then and still don't. :-) But, any day the Bison beat the Gophers in football, or UND...

    1985, to an egg farm. Then a couple of years at NDSU (go Bison. UND sucks. ;-) for grad school, and since '91, to the "real" job.

    I'm into the twelfth year of a minimum 47 mile round trip commute. The "better traffic" and "stave off boredom" routes push it in the 52-55 mile range, with the occasional 60+ "just 'cuz." Once in...

    Run them 'til the cords are showing or you start getting more flats than usual, which should be many, many miles from now for either!

    April Fool's Day of all days, 2013. A chilly morning of 19F and halfway into my 23 mile commute the rear tire started feeling "squishy" in downtown St. Paul. I confirmed this at a red light by...

    Hey, congrats, and glad it worked out! It should be a good bike for you, and maybe it'll be the catalyst for your wife to upgrade her beach cruiser mentality. :-)

    If Terry built it, I'd just write out a check and enjoy it. :-) He had a bike shop in St. Anthony (if I'm remembering my 'burb boundaries) until he retired shortly after we got our '01 RT1000 from...
