Man, that's a crap commute no matter how you slice it. I'd take the bus as far west as I could, then ride. Orangewood doesn't appear to have any bike lanes until almost Euclid. Also, don't know what...

Don't the spokes naturally taper nearer the fork as they approach the hub? I have a wired Cateye and just kept going down the fork until it was close enough. Bar that, you must be able to zip tie...

It's interesting how there's homeless problems around OC and especially along the SART, but I don't see homeless along the Irvine bike trails. Maybe the homeless don't like Irvine! :foo:
