    I've ridden a pair of Schwalbe Ultremos down to where it wasn't just cords; it was inch-long flaps of rubber coming off and showing everything underneath. Not the world's best idea, though.

    Any time I start wondering if it's been long enough, it's been long enough.

    I flatted at mile zero of my first 200K of 2012, and kept flatting through the event until I ran out of tubes and patch...

    Same here. That's just how these bikes are.

    I have a vague memory of hearing, a few years ago, that a redesign was in consideration, but I don't know any more than that.

    I've noticed that Primo Comets are no faster than Marathon Pluses, given certain standard-issue engines.

    I'm a longtime user and big fan of the 20" Marathon Plus. I have a pair on my NYC commuting folder.

    Learning bikes better by assembling a few

    Hi, all,

    I decided 2013 is going to be the year where I learn a lot more about bikes, besides just riding them. So I bought a stand and some tools, took a basic maintenance class, and I'm just...

    Sunlite fork crown setting tool. Because I'm less smart than somebody who'd just have their local bike shop tap it in.

    The OP mentioned steep climbs. There are a few in NYC, particularly in Northern Manhattan, and some even steeper ones right over the GW Bridge, where lots of NYC cyclists go.

    Hmm. Long Island really starts getting pretty out by the Hamptons, and we'd be done before that.
