    Medic Zero is pretty spot on.

    Find a job first, and explore the area. What looks on the map like an easy 25 minute walk can be a nasty slog up and down steep hills in the rain. Buses are great...

    what's the 10sp chain of choice?

    I have always treated chains like a commodity. I bought about 6 of the Performance-branded KMC's when they were available. My riding has trailed off in the last 2 years (work....), so I've just now...

    Caloso, you make me want to cry.
