    I guess if she's not also your current wife then this did not work as planned :-)

    Yeah, my Saab couldn't start in 3rd. I may have tried once or twice.

    I actually broke off the shift lever while...

    Oh, yeah, I don't think anyone would bother carrying sealant and re-seating a tubeless tire on the side of the road (or the mtb trail, for that matter). If putting a plug in it doesn't fix the...

    I generally agree with points 1-3 here. I don't think tubeless < 28mm provides a lot of value. (And contrary to my former opinion on this, I also don't see any reason to run tires smaller than...

    Ha, that's funny . Yeah, my synchros were shot in my Saab 900, so I also had to use 2nd for everything. It made for some scary moments on hills. OTOH, yeah, my Acura TL could go from a stop in...

    Yeah, exactly. I don't think it is any harder to roll a stop sign in a manual. Just leave it in second gear.

    You sure you pumped it up hard enough? Some tires, especially with tubes on tubeless rims, will not snap their beads out of the center channel until pressure gets quite high. (You can then lower it...

    Yeah, if the tires just go easily into the rims, that probably is a dangerous combo. They should be hard -- almost hard enough to need tools, probably? My G-One Speeds are a tight fit on DT Swiss...

    I've had Hitchinson tires blow off the rim -- e.g. Hutchinson Pirhana at 70psi. I have no idea why I was running 70psi; I think that was within a range recommended for use with tubes.

    I rode a set of the 43mm version of these tires for a bit. I think the 35mm might have felt nicer -- probably lighter.

    They felt much better at the recommended-for-me 45/50psi this AM -- and felt quicker too, whatever they may claim about lower pressure being just as fast on supple tires.

    So what's the advantage to a Shimano chain. I have always wanted a quick link, so I have never actually used one. But there must be some reason why people buy them. Price?

    Oh, that's easy; I just stand up and rock the bars a bit and then listen for the rotor rubbing :-)

    But, yes, I decided on the way home that these supple tires need a bit more air to not just feel...

    I wonder what percentage of cyclists pay the admission vs just entering the park via C&O (MD) or CCT/Difficult Run trail (VA).

    Quick review of the 700x38c Compass Barlow Pass:
    - measure 37.5mm on 19mm internal-width rims (Kinlin XR31)
    - very easy to mount and seat tubeless. One tire did lose its air overnight, but I also...

    Ok, well, I'll grant that (very) few of those were full stops, but I'd also maintain that those are not "yields". And not equivalent to my experience for how cyclists...

    I take issue with the suggestion that bikes and cars treat stop signs the same now. If there are some studies that show that most cars do not stop at stop signs, I would be curious to see them.
