    I come up with $187/year (assuming a burdened labor rate of $150/hr, 30 seconds to wipe off and dispose of towel, 3 days per week of cleaning, and 50 weeks per year of riding; of course, YMMV).

    As others have said, Welcome! Sounds like you have a great attitude, and will enjoy biking in the years to come. My wife and I took our tandem up to the Willamette Valley about 15 or 20 years ago. ...

    Yup. I only use my 50x12 combination on downhills, and then only for a short time before it makes more sense to "tuck in" and coast. Of course, I'm an old, not-so-strong, rider, so YMMV.

    If it was an option, I'd give up my 12T as well to either get another mid range, or low range cog (13-25 or 13-30).

    Endevr MyID has a line of all interactive bracelets- uses QR codes. Or you could just go to your nearest pet store and have a "real" dog tag made.

    I like my Cranes, but the Spurcycle is smaller and just as loud, if not louder. If it wasn't for the fact it's "stupid expensive", I'd put them on my two other bikes (well, except for the fact I...

    I find it easier to reach my water bottle on the down tube rather than the seat tube while riding, but other than that . . .

    If by 80's Pug you mean a Peugot, then I believe a nice pair of centerpull Mafac Racers or Mafac 2000s would be period correct, if you can find them on the bay or in the parts bin of an old LBS. I...

    You may or may not have a 1/8" chain. Some people set up FG/SS with 3/32" drivetrains.

    I use a KMC master link on all my chains so I can easily remove them for maintenance.
