    Flatbed tow truck came up on me at high speed and honked me out of the lane rather than changing lanes. We were the only two vehicles on a typical VDOT overbuilt stroad. Really wish it had been...

    If it's any consolation, it doesn't look like they spec BB5s on anything anymore. :D I'd just go for the BB7, it's ~$60 and should be a drop-in replacement. I've never seen them sold without rotors,...

    3) the bigger tires help your butt, also--2 for 1!
