    I agree that it should apply to everything,not just bikes. But there's been zero push to do that from anyone. So far WABA and the council member are the only ones doing anything at all. Maybe if this...

    I like my dental hygienist,I think she's pretty. That's why when I'm in the waiting room I eat an entire bag of Oreo cookies. Sometimes she has to cancel the rest of the day's appointments.

    First,make sure you order the correct diameter tires. There are two 16" wheel sizes,349 and 305,and they cannot be interchanged. Given that your bike came with 1.75" tires,I'm about 99% certain...

    No,the fender mounting hole on the seatstay bridge doesn't go all the way through. And the rims are disc only,so you'd have to get new wheels as well.
