    I actually disagree. The welds aren't the prettiest, sure. But I think it is still classier to leave the welds than to file them off (unless they are really, really bad). Maybe because I used to be a...

    No they didn't. She should have been convicted of manslaughter.

    EDIT - This IS a lot better than some other cases. But still, it isn't right. It isn't justice.

    I have used rim tape to protect the tube in the past.

    I just had to note that myself, and a few other, like 1x9. I have a 39t front chainring and 11-34t 9 speed cassette. I shift it with one downtube shifter and I really couldn't be happier.

    I agree 100%. Especially if I am taking the train I prefer a messenger bag... except when I am on my bike. I still usually stick to panniers since they are so much nicer when you are actually riding.

    +1 for the Joe Blow Sport. It's nice enough that I never wish it was better. It's rebuildable too!

    With the exception of direct bright sunlight I always have my lights on. Actually, that goes for when I am in my car too.

    No. Start with one day a week, then two, ..., until you are doing it every day. 35 miles round trip five days in a row from the start is not realistic. 35 miles round trip once a week is.

    How was your bike secured? I just want to know so I can judge my own setup.

    Exactly, you can't get the lien released without paying off the loan and you can't sell the car without getting the lien released.

    I disagree. The loan will have language requiring that he keep the car insured. Also, he will get more money for a car with valid tags and insurance. Insurance allows you to test drive the car.

    You can't sell the car for less than it is worth (unless you have cash to cover the difference) because the car is collateral on the loan. You can't sell the collateral out from under the loan. You...

    I personally will always opt for a 36 hole rear wheel and a 32 hole front wheel. I don't care how much you weigh, the strength is worth it for a commuter.

    It takes practice, and a couple of falls. I can now guarantee you that I will unclip before I fall. FWIW I used SPD's.

    I don't think we will see any large calamity (only large changes). I think we witnessed this in the summer of 2008. The more gas cost, the less people drove. I think the market works.

    You are going to have to do SOMETHING to break through that plateau. You can lower your caloric intake or you can burn more calories. I am a big fan of running so I vote for the latter.
