    Oh, yeah - that was my intention. These are really nice folks that do good work. They organize a weekly "slow roll" ride through downtown Detroit all summer that's fun to do. I was planning on trying...

    Just a chuckle-y side note - I noticed the forum software thought I was using a naughty word when I used the Latin word for "with" to describe the organization running this class - if you know your...

    I find that for me frequent (every 15-20 miles) short stops make the whole ride much better. just long enough to get off the saddle, move around and stretch, drink something nibble something, pump...

    I've thought of doing that myself, as it's only about the same from my house to the office.

    The thing that makes me hesitate is that with the extra commuting time, plus the time to shower and...

    I do the same, and am always amazed at the junk I pull out of the tire. However, I've never deflated the tire for the inspection - is this a better way to do it? The bits of glass and metal and such...
