    I have a 2009 Pacer that is currently running on 28s and have room for fenders. I've had 32s on it, but doubt fenders would fit with them.

    I'm not as "in tune" to dogs (or their owners) as you are. I would have pedaled my a$$ off to get away from it. You're a better citizen than I am, but I now have something to strive for now.

    I have 10,000+ miles on my M324s. They work great rain or shine! I've been looking at the 530s for another bike but haven't pulled the trigger.
