    Thanks -- this is very helpful.

    Thanks for sharing this -- really a nice write-up. I didn't realize that historic roads continue to be paved over, but of course they do! Nice to know there's at least a discussion about preservation.

    Strava flybys are now off by default. Just noticed this tonight. I liked this feature and was never hugely worried about the privacy implications but I suppose it's open to various forms of abuse.

    I can't speak to whether the Pauls are worth the substantial premium over Shimano or Tektro options but I can do with a little more bling in my life

    Biking in the wet the past couple of days reminded me of my plan to replace my Space Horse's tepid cantilever brakes with v-brakes. On a whim, I used the online chat function on the Contes website --...
