    I've not ridden a Fuji, but they've been around a *long* time, and have a history of making some pretty sweet bikes. I've been mulling over buying a Fuji frame and building a bike up myself.

    No doubt! Sounds like a good science fair project to me. I'll go for it if I get to sit in an umbrella chair with a six pack while I'm doing the counting. Too bad we don't live in the same area. ...

    That's just it. I don't mind ... in fact, LIKE the fact that that people do things differently. I'm a bit of a contrarian my myself, as I'm sure a lot of us cycling kooks are. And the fact that...

    No help here ... it's been downhill as long as I remember.

    And I'm with you on the descent. It's a hand cramper. I actually switched to Kool Stops because of it.

    Gotta say ... that is a great video. For and aft views, great music, elevation, speed, cadence ... wow! How the heck do you do that?

    No worries here ... Honestly, I think a lot of this stuff is highly fact-dependent and a lot of that doesn't really come across in print. Like carbonfiberboy said ... it's complicated.

    My Morning Rant

    Grrrr.

    So my son and I are riding to work. We are on a residential street that has stop signs about every 1/10 of a mile.
