    Can't stand Clarkson - arrogant and annoying bigot - he's the guy you love to hate. Hammond and (especially) May are quite entertaining though.

    Nothing will shut them up. I've been in this situation at least a half dozen times. Tried every route - nice, call the law, aggressively pissed off - all a waste of time. So I've accepted that...

    Try here:

    Trek, Fisher, Klein, Lemond bike catalogs, bicycle brochures

    Never thought the manuals for my Treks provided that much actually helpful information.

    I do quite a bit of night riding, both on mtb trails and on paved trails. I do usually have one bar mounted light (Cree) and one helmet mounted light (old MagicShine).

    Went mtb'ing with my brother. Came up to a log with a ramp over (that I've ridden over a hundred times) and slowed just a tad too much at the top. Ended up...

    I live in northeast Ohio.

    There's a small trail system in town (that I helped build!) so I can ride through the neighborhoods about 3 miles to get in a short ride on beginner trails.

    I would like it to either A) stop raining long enough for the mountain bike trails to be rideable, OR B) rain enough that the whitewater creeks come up and I can go kayaking.

    This third category ...

    I'd say to not concern yourself with considering 29" bikes to start out. There are more 26" wheel bikes out there so it should be easier to find a used one at a good price.

    I don't do group rides, but that's only a couple of miles away from where I live.

    Unless their route sticks to state highways it should be mostly on paved back roads with little traffic. And...

    I just saw something that showed a test that showed how red chili powder could be used as a bear repellent, because their sense of smell is so sensitive. Wonder if it would work for rats?

    Speaking of unusual names...

    When I used to live in Red Wing, Minnesota there was a bar there named after the owner - "Orel's". That's right, his name was Orel.

    I'd agree that you need a roll if you're paddling above class III. It's helpful below of course, but the swims aren't as rough. :)

    99% of the people who see you won't notice whether it's a 26 or 29 - or even know the difference.

    Besides, it's supposed to be about how the bike rides, rather than how it looks.
