Doesn't surprise me at all. I end up commuting through them all the time. I really wish they'd put some lane markers on that last little stretch of the hiawatha trail, and finish it past 11th into...

Ready for more?



Most likely, Uncle Sam is going to say that. I'm betting that if we try to use it on something else, they will quietly pull the funding.

The light rail will not be incorporated into the new design, from what I've heard. There isn't enough time to plan how it would have to be fit in, where it would go on either side, etc. They want...

I tried it, and it faded almost to white nearly immediately. Then it went towards black where my hands hit it. All in all, I was not impressed. It was about 24 hours before I proofhided it, but...

I'm 6' and just test rode the 56 and the 58 trying to figure out what size to get. The 58 seemed a lot better. I would have gone with a 57, but they don't make one.
