    Today I finished season 1 of Hannibal. I'm pleasantly surprised because I was expecting it to be horrible.

    Do you guys think a Kona Rove would be a good ride for a college kid living in Portland?

    Anyone heard of any problems with them? Or any personal experience?

    Highlight of the day was when I found that a Waterloo Trek 930, just like Dan's but geared, 58cm, w/ OG decals, was locked up beside mine. Noticed the familiar shade of blue and then the vintage trek logo on the ST before in a pleasant surprise.

    I own a Rove and I like it, as it's kind of a beast -- steel, weighs about 26 pounds. It's been perfectly reliable for ~2000 miles. Happy to answer any specific questions if you have them, though you might get more input at the Cyclocross forum.

    Can't really go wrong with a Kona.... no I'm not being biased because my commuter is that make....

    Also you should push the envelope for a rove Ti. WANT.

    If the geometry works, I think the Rove Ti would be raddddd. Ask Charlie for his opinion due to him owning one and his proximity to where you're located.

    Also, I see you decided to get the hell outta Davis and decided to attend school in Portland, huh? Have fun!

    It'll probably get stolen. Personally I'd opt for a series of $50 rigid mtbs from the 90s offa craigslist.

    I figured after 18 years it'd be fun to try something new!

    I do love my 80's/90's mtbs. But I can keep it in my room so I think it'd be reasonably safe.

    Drive off the island and come race track bikes on Wednesdays in Wall, NJ. It will get you out of the funk.

    Mornings are tough for me. I try to not leave any decisions for early morning, and i try (emphasis on try) to stick by the decisions I made before bed. One trick is to leave everything ready, so you can't find any excuses.

    Shake it off and try again tomorrow.

    Cheers

    Went to our big bike festival kick off ride yesterday, was hoping the red bull people were there again this year but no luck, last year I stocked up and lived like an over caffeinated king. While I was waiting some guy came up and was adding about my bike, I guess he recognized it from instagram or here. #imfamous

    Experienced the rite of passage of falling over while riding clipped in for the first time. Luckily it was in my garage and not at a stoplight pulling the kiddy trailer.

    It has to be futile. Try moving your car keys after a couple drinks and you'll have no problem having to bike to work the next morning.

    That one doesn't count. The one that does is at a busy intersection during rush hour with somebody rushing out of their car to help.

    LOL. I suppose you're right. There's nothing like falling over all by yourself to make yourself remember to un-clip well ahead of where you intend to stop. Actually, I can't imagine how much more difficult this would be riding fixed vs. freewheel. I probably would've ate it 10 ten times by now.
