    Well, not sure about exactly that but yes, the general idea. People say to me all the time, "Be careful on that bike! You might get hurt!" Well, yes, I might. But I've seen a lot of people more...

    Muirenn, my experience with complex ideas like this is that you just get in and start swimming. And at first a lot of it just washes over me. But then it starts to make sense and increasingly...

    Well, clearly, everyone here views the bike as a canvas and you customize it to notch it up and turn it into a work of art. I'm really pretty cheap and my Madone is not, by any means, top of the...

    Muirenn, went to the Maxxis page for tires. Lots of information--overwhelming! But the graphic on surfaces versus tires was somewhat clarifying.

    Muirenn, I thought this was "art photography" until I opened it up. But what you're saying is the raised areas aren't as deep as some.

    Kansans=Nebraskans. I think it matters how much they would expect to see a cyclist on the road. I have one of those lovely blinking LED tail lights but I _often_ forget to turn it on.

    Clips make sense to me on pavement. Where you need more responsiveness to conditions like you might on gravel, it does not make as much sense. I don't even like the feeling of slipping on ice in a...

    Muirenn, i do have cantilever brakes. When there is the least little moisture, they make a fierce squeaking noise when I brake. (Not exactly a confidence builder.) So much to learn.
