    I just have two quick FG questions:

    I'd also add that depending on the reason you want the lock, you might want to get two of them. Because my primary need for a lock is commuting, I leave my u-lock on the rack at work. That way, I...

    He's talking the same as you. Leaving CC going toward MVT, the first tunnel is plenty wide, but somewhat poor sight lines, especially with the steep hill on one end of it. I think people pass in that...
