    I'm a bit of a bag enthusiast, so I clicked through when I saw the query. Unless your commute ride is short, I'd recommend against a leather messenger bag. It's not going to breathe well. It's...

    No trying to hijack, but I bought a Casseroll today. So smooth and nice. Now I have to decide which of my old two bikes to get rid of, because I'm not going with n + 1. :eek:

    I dunno if it will fit. It might. My 56 hybrid and my 54 road bike both fit in '10 GTI, but I got the roof rack anyway. It's easier to deal with and doesn't scratch the interior of the car. ...

    I have the surly steel fork on my bean green cross check. I agree with Knotted that it's a really nice fork, both to look at and ride.

    I just did this exchange recently for the first time and found it pretty easy. You need a chain whip, a cassette tool, and a wrench. Be sure to keep the cassette pieces in the right order.

    I saw your query about this on the Surly LHT/CC mailing list. I think steel is going to be more comfortable for you than aluminum. If a LHT doesn't suit, why not something like a Gunnar Sport? ...

    Thanks Southern Belle. I replaced the old worn pedals (M535) with a new set (M540). So, both pedals are new and on the same looseness setting and I stay in when I want and can get out when I want. ...

    Ok, just to be clear. R.C. is my partner of 13 years. She IS NOT a furry.

    Neither am I.

    She did tell me about the cycling lady with the ears. That is all.
