    He threw the valve stem cap away, declaring it 'Not cool'. Perhaps he has been reading the Velominati web site. I cap my stems to avoid damage to that little nut on the end of the stem.

    I just go over them with some metal polish on a cloth and stop there. I don't try to buff them, if those teeth caught...there is a surprising amount of blood in the human body.

    Look, this thread will never get to 5 or 6 pages if we don't have a few side discussions. At least this one involved Treks in Europe. Also, the overwhelming consensus is to take the Trek. Game over.

    I'll stick with the helmet mirror. No one is going to yank it off my face and run away with it.

    You mean to tell me that Trek has conquered Europe? Like McDonald's Big Macs? That's sort of sad.

    +1 on the PDW Shiny Object. The little, beautifully made inflator handles Presta or Schrader valves and has a needle valve that allows you to precisely control the inflation.

    I was in a frat, long ago and far away. We would have done that and we would have been flirting. On the other hand, the hi-vis helmet is apparently easily seen, so I would say that it is working.

    Nashbar has black quill stems to fit 1 1/8" threaded forks. Fairly light, too. I have one on a Trek 930 from about 1991.

    I cut mine off with an antique Henry Disston and Sons nail saw. It has the most beautiful applewood handle. My wife likes to put the chrome Campagnolo hangers on her charm bracelets. Life is good.

    My 1.75 Panaracer Tservs weigh in at 450 g each. I'm not interested in anything narrower and for that weight, I'll take them.

    Doesn't look like either bike has rack/fender eyelets on the front fork and only the Nashbar bike has a single set of eyelets on the dropout. Does either bike have rack eyelets on the seatstays?
