    I haven't seen anyone mention this yet, but grease isn't the only reason to put the bike in chain side up. If you put that side down, you risk damaging the drivetrain (if you bend the derailleur...

    Wow! What kind of a shelter claims that a dog like that is good with cats & children? Sounds like a great way to make sure he never gets a real chance. A recipe for disaster.

    Is it possible that your "advisors" we're comparing to a standard double, and not a triple? The standard wouldn't have the weight penalty of the triple.

    Hi Yellow!

    Wow - that doesn't sound like much on-snow time, but a lot of people do it. I haven't, personally, because I live where I can ski every day. However, we have a 50k 5 miles from my...
