    Bob's practically standing in my front yard to take this pic...had I not been sleeping soundly in my warm bed, I'd have run 'em out of the neighborhood.

    If you're going to go all-in and do the bottom bracket yourself, make sure you have a good torque wrench, since you'll need to properly torque your BB cups and crank bolts when you install the BB....

    Not to mention that these I66 alternate routes are largely out of Arlington's jurisdiction (for lack of a better word) as well, and it seems unlikely VDOT will do much to discourage this (speed...

    46x17 is a good all-around gear, but definitely not an "easy" gear for the hills around here. I'd say if you're making it up the tough hills with some effort, but basically comfortable everywhere...

    Seems like you might be much more of a masher than I am. 48x17 (74.5 gear inches, almost the same as 46x16) on my Cinelli puts me at a really comfortable cadence from about 17-22mph (80-100rpm). I'm...

    I don't know how much value my insight is, but I think that the aluminum vs. steel question to a degree depends on what your needs/preferences are. I have two aluminum bikes, but they're both "race"...

    I was surprised at how dry everything was, even in spots like Banneker Park that have been troublesome the last couple of days. I think I can finally go fenderless tomorrow!

    "Baggies" don't necessarily have to be baggy. Giro, Swrve, and others all make "regular" shorts that have a relatively close fit and that are designed for the rigors of riding...so that's a good...
