    Cleaned up my commuter and put my new Brooks saddle on this afternoon. I got some SKS fenders, but they didn't fit.

    I don't have a clock to punch so I just get to work when I get here and go home 9 hours later. If I had to, I'd add in 30 minutes (10 to change the tire, and 20 cursing the commuting gods for the...

    As I've been browsing through here and beginning my own car-lite life, I keep asking myself, "how long can one really be car-free realistically?"

    I agree. We have a two car garage and park our one car outside; more because it's a rental and the opener doesn't work, but hey, it's a big place to store stuff and work on projects.

    Rear fender

    What do you think of this fender. I thought it was pretty slick for a minimalist fender.

    I'm in for 150 this month by commuting alone. Hopefully I can get in some longer rides on my days off and hit 200. It's hard making time with a 14 month old at home.
