Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Thanks again, sbxx. I've gotten a few gift cards from the Post. It's fun, and cool to be on the "tour". This neighborhood isn't really set up for charter buses, but they make it in somehow.

I've pretty much decided to go with a Sram PG850 12-26 cassette on the mountain bike.
