    Yeah, I think it is perfectly appropriate to say, cheerily, "c'mon keep the pace up if you're going to pass me".

    This is awesome; you've convinced me that I should try this. What's the worst that could happen !? (Probably dented rim, honestly; that'd kinda suck.) I'll probably skip the newer more technical...

    Ha, no. I run the big 42mm (Specialized Trigger) tires in the woods. Rode w/ @GuyContinental and @GB this AM; it was awesome -- no dropped chains, no chain slap (at least nothing significant).

    Aren't people just going to ride there? :-) That was the plan, but I expect I will just watch it from the couch.

    If you just want a slow ride, you could get a cruiser or a dutch city bike -- or rent a CaBi. Or just ride the Bianchi slower. :-) I suspect you want more upright geometry, though. The flatbar Trek...

    Getting another bike because you got a couple flats is pretty silly. Get yourself some Gatorskins or Schwalbe Durano tires and ride away. I typically get one flat every 3,000 miles or so, and that is...

    Yeah, just get a water proof backpack for the laptop and don't worry about yourself getting wet until it is winter time. Tilden is a nice hill, but you can just take it easy and spin up; it isn't too...

    Sadly I think I'm out; my son wants to ride home from school tomorrow since it hasn't worked out to do that another day this week, so I need to add extra time for the with-child leg of my commute. I...

    That is a great outcome. I'm having some issues with my Yokozuna cables/housing too on my road bike RD -- just very difficult shifting. I've been assuming that there's corrosion in there, though...

    With sufficient tension, you don't need loctite; I suspect the real fix was that you retensioned it.

    @Terpfan, at minimum you need those wheels completely rebuilt. Worst-case (if the rims are too...

    Also, if you're willing to go further afield, you could probably get a Titan or XACD ti frame for similar price as a Surly.

    Sadly no, I have to pickup my son at preschool instead. I could bring him, but then he'd want a beer too. And he's only allowed to drink beer when he pedals himself home.
