    Switched from Avid BB5s (Total [expletive deleted] garbage) on our Xtracycle to Shimano hydraulics. A friend helped me bleed them once - it's the kind of thing that someone can show you once, help...

    Mine's 2006. It's been a trusty and dependable steed, though I'm pretty sure it's jealous of all the time I spend on bikes. If DC didn't offer such good subsidies on public storage of my big metal...

    I appreciate the credit for an idea I didn't even have - I wasn't thinking of it that way. It's probably hard to get historical forecast data, but it would be interesting to compare whether forecast...
