    I can't really remember where I found it. It was on one of those avatar collection sites. From what I can tell I think it's a real sign somewhere.

    Congrats on doing RAGBRAI! With a hybrid that's quite an accomplishment.

    Agree with the others on looking at a cross bike, it would probably be able to handle unpaved trails pretty well.

    I'm not sure about asthma, but humidity can be deceiving when it's cold. When temperatures are colder the air is able to "hold" less water vapor. Even when it's damp out, the dewpoint (one way to...

    Thanks Deb!

    The only thing I've ever removed from the rear wheel is the tire, so this will be a new experience for me. Hopefully I won't mess things up too badly.

    Thanks again.
