Messy, messy ride. No treacherous ice to speak of, but lots of puddles and potholes, particularly on the way back (eastward), which I kind of expected; westward conditions were...

Why? Impact results aren't the sole consideration. While the $150 is marginally better in that regard, the $300 is their aero model. I think that it's already been proven that some people out there...
