    2000 miles is my annual goal... so I know how far that is... at least for me. A cold wet spring limited my early spring cycling here. I am still 141 miles short of my 2000 mile goal. You did a great...

    I do a somewhat cursory inspection before each ride. I check the tires air pressure, look for crap on the chain and/or tires, and I squeeze/test the brakes before leaving the driveway.

    New lines are out. You should be able to find plenty on line... if your LBS is light on stock. But why not just ask the places you visit?

    I'll tell you what really chaps my behind. Cold damp weather. And.... it's that time of year here.

    Gender, bike, then age.

    Although I will admit that if the cyclist is attractive.... I might not look so closely at the bike. And also even though I am old and slow I rarely get passed that often...

    Not all dogs bark. I think it might be an error to assume that a silent dog is somehow more aggressive. Some dogs have been trained to behave.... which in their minds means not making the sounds.......

    Real hate... has a component of fear at it's root. A motorist... being scared that their own lapse of skill or judgment when driving may cause the death of a cyclist could evolve to a higher (lower?)...

    Interesting comments/questions.

    Bicyclists often put ourselves at odds with the general population... which is non productive and silly. By separating ourselves by virtue of our cycling activity...

    I live near the bottom of one of the biggest hills in my area. Cycling almost anywhere means climbing up nearly two miles of narrow winding roads (starting at my driveway). Whereas that made my...

    I had a flat a couple weeks ago. For whatever reason.... it took my entire CO2 cartridge to inflate the tire. I was telling that to another cyclist that confessed he carries FOUR cartridges...

    I love my bikes! But whether it's a fleet, a stable, a couple, or just one latest-greatest.... if the finances can't swing it our thoughts are better directed towards training. Than new bike buying.

    If you've got the money for something you want there is nothing wrong with buying it. Enjoy life.

    The mistake you're making is even considering selling you old aluminum bike! Two very similar...

    I got a chuckle out of that. I am one of the few that think that the fail safe equipment should be left on the bicycle.
