    Want: A pair of Nokian Hakkeplitta A10 700x32. 35c won't fit my new commuter frame.

    I don't need it for weekend rides but I find the little helmet mounted mirror essential for my daily commute. I use it to scan what's coming up behind me just like we all do (I hope) when driving a...

    I was thinking about this. My only reservation is that this bike doubles as my fast long-ride bike so I wanted to keep it as light as possible. Perhaps it's time for getting a real road bike.

    Ha ha, that's going to take a quite bit of time. I'm kind of weird. I'm overweight with lots of fat but still feel more athletic than not.

    I'll probably take up your #1 and AndyK's suggestion. Where did #2 come from?!?! I'm not there yet and I will never be (I hope) there.

    No, I'm not moving because I love my neighborhood too much. I wish my commute is like yours, going up the hill to work and cruising down on the way back.
