    Well, if you "ALWAYS" ride in the middle ring, just change the setup into a 1x8 and be done with it.:rolleyes:

    My guess is that he completely misjudged your speed. He's thinking, "Hmm... bicycle--15mph." You are thinking, "Lee Highway, just east of Veitch--35 mph."

    Interstate riding out west is fine. You have 12' paved shoulders. Who cares how fast the cars are going? The only issue are ramps and they generally have no traffic in rural areas.

    Ummm... It wasn't a single lane road. Have you ever driven out west on perfectly straight roads with excellent sight lines? Speeding isn't like drunk driving.
