    congrats, It is far more rewarding when somthing you built with your own two hands works well, and you are the only one to blame when the cranks fall of
    "The only reasons anyone should ever ride in the rain is because a) youíve had your license to operate a motor vehicle suspended by the state. b) youíre in a bike race in which case youíre not allowed to use fenders anyway. c) youíre from Portland- in which case my main problem is with your neck beard- not your bicycle...If you need to train when itís pissing rain- buy a trainer or one of those cheap charter flights to Mallorca."

    How about just letting him ride his bike the way he wants and stop with the brake preaching. My wife doesn't even ride a fixie and she is tired of hearing it.
