    An update: I found a good deal on a Cross Check on Ebay. It met all my criteria but 5). I'll get used to the shifters pretty quick and disc brakes were more of a "like to have it" thing than a...

    We decided not to file for insurance. We have a pretty high deductible so we decided we didn't want to risk our premiums going up just for a few hundred dollars. And since it was our fault, they...

    Specialized Tricross discontinued?

    In the last day or two, the Tricross has disappeared from the Specialized website. I can find it in the 2014 Archive, but there apparently is no 2015 version. I guess the AWOL and Diverge are...

    What's really "fun" is to ride on the Ueda bike tail on those days. You're the highest thing around so there's nothing to stop the wind. The headwinds are bad enough, but when the crosswinds come...

    We got our stuff stolen. We still need new bikes.

    Thanks for all your replies.

    I almost wrote that we had been "burgled" but I figured that wouldn't make the language police any happier so I didn't. :)

    We got robbed, so we need new bikes.

    We forgot to close the garage door last week so somebody helped themselves to all our bikes.

    While this really sucks, it does make n+1 an easier sell :). (Even n+2!)

    At Costco today, I saw a 3-pack of CREE LED flashlights (nominally 200 lumin each). I thought about buying them but they ran on AAAs. Still, very impressive at the price point. Throw in some Two...

    Interesting this should come up. My Aurora 2-mode P7 finally died after 2.5 years.

    They're planning an all-weather bike/pedestrian river crossing when they build the bridge for the new light rail to the airport. If this happens before 2020 I'll be amazed.

    Rant: They closed the floodgates.

    It's bad enough that it rains 9 out of every 10 days around here (Sacramento). But last week they flooded Discovery Park (my main route to work). This forced me to use a 3 mile detour to Northgate....
