    I loved the brown lenses offered by Smith and, after replacing the pair, I went with the comparable gold iridium Oakley. Both "brighten" the road while reducing the intensity w/o making the world...

    I replaced a Open Corsa EVO CX with a 4000 during a ride when I shredded a sidewall. The new tire seems fine and I'll replace my remaining CX with another 4000 that I just ordered online (sorry...

    I read somewhere that it should be just enough pressure to leave an imprint on your palm as you close the lever.

    Agreed re: ride quality of EVO CX, but I have plenty of deep knicks and one puncture thus far. I have a Conti 4000 on the rear and will purchase another for the front when the remining CX gives out....

    Do you normally wear a base layer on hot days with your bibs? I noticed my bib straps cause some discomfort on my sensitive chest areas and thought a decent wicking layer would help, but am...
  13. Festival Parking at Hains Point

    Good advice. Enjoy it now while you can. The Park Service is rerouting parking and plans to send traffic into Hains point for parking where The Awakening used to be. What a mess.

    Good to know I'm not alone. Looks like we both chose form over function w/ the indoor rack. I'll take it over the shop and have the sarcastic (but friendly) shop owner check it out. Thankfully, I...
