    You can find a good 26" hardtail mountain bike pretty cheap. I use one to commute on more than half the time. Also saw a newer Trek 7.2 @ the library yesterday with a rack. Thought it would make for...

    Tried Scabs. Worked well on 60 psi MTB tube, lost air overnight on a high pressure road tube.

    How do you get across (two busy streets on my route)? You wait for traffic to clear, then amble on across. Simple enough. These two roads ironically are real stress zones while driving!

    This pushes ignorant into the realm of rude- the select few that ask what I paid for my bike- then are open mouth shocked when I tell them. One guy actually shook his head.

    Same here. The guy who made the Armstrong crack only rides a couch. He thought he had come up with something witty and original.

    And enough of Armstrong already! At least pick a new racer!

    I'd ride the MTB, and not think twice about blowing up the front suspension. Forks aren't that expensive, or fragile. 26" tires are really good in bad conditions, and are easily swapped out. Studded...

    Thank goodness for back up bikes. Flat tires are the norm here in goat head country, it's easy to fix a flat at home.

    IMO, Joe Blow works great for presta. Schrader is another story. Endless fiddling to get the thing to seat well. Usually end up "racing" to inflate the tire ahead of the seeping air escaping. Good...

    Tires are the thing we all have in common. They make an incredible difference in the way your bike handles/ performs. As for lights... I like the cheapies from Wal Mart. They actually perform well....

    It sounds as if the driver of the truck was at fault. Don't blame yourself, or get discouraged. We all have our moments, being set upon by idiots.

    FWIW, your ears are your best friends. Use them.

    Yep, that's them all right. There is a sharp side always sticking up as they lie on the ground. Not only are they bad for your tires, they will actually penetrate some shoes and give you a nasty jolt.
