    My impression is that "curated" is a better term than "custom" here :-)

    As for fitting, there should be a "right" frame size that you can arrive at by calculating your current stack/reach numbers...

    The banjo bros waterproof bags (and presumably panniers) are very light. The waterproof liner probably adds a couple ounces, but that is more than worth it for me to not have to ever worry about...

    Yeah, I am very happy with my habanero cx frame. I plan to eventually get a custom road (disc-brake, of course) frame from Habanero. They are a great outfit -- fantastic customer service.

    Yeah, I think an HRM would help you, though you will have to devote some effort toward identifying your max HR for the numbers to be meaningful. And then you probably want to do some reading on how...

    There must be a typo on their specs page when they say that 700x42 fit with fenders on that frame. They must mean 650x42. As mstone says, that sounds like it would be the same frame (as the regular...

    Beautiful work. You were right; the gumwalls look fantastic. And the accents really give it personality -- well done!

    Can't remember if you mentioned earlier, but what rims are those?

    I think the significant thing is how/whether people identify as a group with shared values, traditions, etc. More than just the common employ of a two-wheeled transport mechanism. There are...

    Yeah, I will eventually break down and get a PM to cross reference. People suggest that the newer Garmin calculations are pretty accurate (when using HR strap), but definitely the numbers that Strava...

    I bought this secondhand myself. It is in generally very good condition. Two small issues: the flag holder "pocket" needs some reinforcement stitches (I haven't been using the flag but I do have it)...

    Yeah, I heard the accident (and looked up to see it) pulling my son home. Glad no one was seriously hurt. Yeah, the cyclist was telling the driver to calm down; she was hysterical.

    Good point about the announcer! That didn't make sense to me either.

    Yes, and beer. I think beer would have been fantastic -- even at 8:30am.

    Well, the Giro was only available for me (fios) on BEIN this year, which is where it seems most of the spring classics are broadcast too. It works, though; with fios I just add the $10 sports package...
