    Do you prefer strawberry jam or grape jelly with that?

    Hey Jinkster,
    I used to have a bike just like that, including the original giant saddle which was a real ass-hatchet.

    Not commenting on the thickness of the op's skin, but it is important to realize that some people have some very weird quirks.

    I don't find much difference between 23 and 25 wrt flat frequency, but the bigger tires tend to have a bit more tread so they will last longer. If you are going to be doing a lot of commuting, that...
