    +1 The stretch of sidewalk I ride is the road that leads to the I-285 overpass. There is no "just go another street over" because there just aren't many roads that go over the interstate. The...

    Well said. I ride street 98% of the time, too (73% of all statistics are made up by the way), but there are two sections on my commute where I use the sidewalk. One is on the uphill of a 45mph...

    It's funny, lately I've been researching the heck out of bikes to reduce my stable. At first I thought I could get it down to two, a rigid MTB + a do-everything-else commuter/tourer/road bike, but I...

    Slicks make a huge difference, even fat ones like Big Apples.

    Another nice benefit to always taking the heavy commuter is on the occasional day where I take the road bike, it's like being shot...

    Do you have the red ones, or the salmon (orange) ones currently? I've been very happy with the salmon ones for many years on different bikes. Never used the red ones though, but the salmon compound...

    I thought it was an inside joke on some "should I rotate my tires" discussion that ended up with ten pages and over the top arguments like most threads here.

    But NOW I got it :D

    I meant to do it when I cleaned and repacked the hub bearings at 6K miles, but forgot to. I figure if I rotate them now, the pair should last to 11K miles easily. :)

    My Schwalbe Big Apples 26x2.15" after 6,700 miles of commuting. I should probably rotate the front and the rear. :lol:

    Edit: Only one flat in that time, picked up a metal splinter in my garage...

    Do you know where his front light is/was mounted? Just asking because towards the end of the video I see the flashing, but it's also lighting up his forearms and the rear of his cable coming off the...

    Blankets is a bit of a drive from Buckhead, but worth it. An alternative is going to Gainesville and riding Chicopee, nice trail system there, too. There's also the Big Creek Park trail system off of...

    Man, quality controls must be awful, just look, the entire drivetrain is on the wrong side! :D

    Or is that a UK thing to match the opposite side of the road driving? :p

    Custom fit and customer-picked options drive the price for the Geekhouse, that's it. I don't think it's an unreasonable cost for a custom frame, either, but a lot (most?) people can get a regular...

    Very little rise though, so they wouldn't help Medic. Unless you rotate them so they're upright, but that's just weird.

    I have to ask - how tall are you? 6'7"? The Corrado makes the 26" wheels look tiny.

    You could also consider replacing the fork. I know it would kinda stink since it wouldn't in color anymore, but...
