    I do NOT grease the steerer or handlebar clamps on the stem. Pretty sure that's common practice. I do grease the seat tube though...well, anti-seize, but same diff.

    My first preference was the Kilo WT, which can take 45mm tires and fenders, even with its caliper brakes...I was about to pull the trigger, but went over to Nashbar just to double check things, and...

    Yeah, the hoods came pre-positioned and the bars already taped... not the positioning I'd prefer, but frankly I don't think it'll bother me enough to re-tape. It's really meant to be a (super cheap)...

    Not a big lifestyle cramp...I just didn't like that it seemed to be constantly begrimed with the derailleurs/cassette/crank/cables all gunked up, and I'd feel guilty if I didn't clean it really well,...

    Unconnected lever. I have a set of Cane Creek levers that are spring-loaded, so the the disconnected lever stays put. The SRAM levers that I got for my Cinelli, however, are not (to my dismay)...

    Depending on your mileage, once a year doesn't seem bad. Kool-stop pads are what, $10-$15 a pair? And learn how to replace them yourself and the labor is free. On my (now sold) all-weather commuter,...

    The one year I went I rode up Wiehle rather than Hunter Mill. Seemed like the safer option, since it has four lanes and better sightlines. I had no issues riding it in either direction.

    You may not be looking at a Top 10 finish, but it sounds like you'll be a solid team member. I'd say if you put up 75 points a week or so (including the daily riding credit), you're doing pretty well.
