    Thanks. I looked at the list of Texas rides at wheelbrothers and it appears ft. Davis cyclefest is the same weekend. I know that is a scenic and popular event, and I haven't done it before.

    Actually, the top tube on mine worked out just about right, and I don't have long arms. My converted Trek 900 has the bar reach good, but just a touch further than ideal. The crosscut is perfect.

    We have one of these racks from Allen Sports on my wife's car. Pretty decent and easy to use. A big plus is that it folds up and stows away if desired.

    I like the Salsa tape, it is grippy on the bars, and stretches around bends nicely. I'd prefer it without the logo, but it's not too obnoxious. Bontrager has a very similar tape that behaves almost...

    Yes, the Danger Zone. I probably don't need to top them off as often as I do, but the brightness fades gradually, so if I wait for that I don't always notice.
