    I suppose the band could be stuck on pretty good, but if you took the screws all the way out you ought to be able to just whack the hoods with your hand and they'll come loose.

    I always do that on the road since I use CO2 inflators, but at home I do it with the pump.

    It strikes me that acting suits Lance rather well - maybe not serious drama right away, but he could make...

    A couple people in my company just transferred from our Hawaii office. I made a joke that Hawaiians move to San Francisco and say "Wow, I can't believe how cheap housing is up here."

    I don't understand wanting to be more than 10 miles from Diablo... but you could maybe consider south Oakland / San Leandro - near BART stations and Redwood Road which is some OK riding.

    Had one, hated it, got rid of it in a month or so. It really messed with handling, especially when out of the saddle, and it always felt weird. I like Ibera though and kept the bag to put on an...

    Yeah, I'm bringing in Forester's book for anybody to look at. And I figure I'll be educating the drivers about how to drive safely around cyclists as well.

    That hub in your first post is a flip flop - I assumed it was fixed-fixed, but googling shows fixed-free - so it's just like the Surly in the photo. Enjoy your new wheel and single speed freewheel.

    You could also go from WC north to Martinez - the trail is at places interesting, fun, industrial, and seldom crowded. The views of Diablo are good too.

    This is true for Schraeder valves in Schraeder holes, presta valves in Schraeder holes, and presta valve in presta holes. Is a presta valve in a Schraeder hole with a grommet truly any better?
