    Yeah, they aren't very thick, though that hasn't been a problem for me in practice riding. (Similarly, I had a thorn that punctured the sidewall but then sealed up and was no further problem.).

    The real benefit to the G-One is the pavement performance. If I was riding 100% gravel, I would go for a knobbier tire (probably the Rambler, actually). But I always end up with a fair bit of...

    Yeah, sorry; it sounds like my sarcasm actually sounded like reasonable advice to my fellow Arlingtonians. You should not call the police. As my well-trained kids would say: woman up. Talk to the...

    I was being sarcastic. If there is a legitimate accessability issue caused by the sidewalk being restricted, I would think this would be pretty "not awkward". If someone just wants to be a dick, then...

    Talking to the neighbor sounds awkward. I vote you call the police.

    Easiest, though, is probably to just F'ing take a step the side when you walk past their house. I'm sure they'll trim their...

    Yeah, the singlespeed field was insanely fast. I was riding with them for the first third (or maybe almost half) of the race and it was tough keeping up.

    It's so odd to me that you guys have had problems with the G-Ones. Still by far my favorite serious gravel tire, though I am gonna try some Donnelly Strada USHs or similar for additional perspective...

    That paved downhill was the probably my favorite downhil on the course. (Had I dropped my tire pressure, I might have liked some of the earlier gravel downhills too.)

    That part on Rt. 33 sucked...

    Yeah, I did *not* ride my road bike. And I did *not* ride Compass tires (primarily because I couldn't get those damned tires to re-seat tubeless). I am very happy with both of those choices. The...

    I've been happy with the S-Works Turbo. They run a little small. I think on my fairly wide (21mm-internal) rims they measure right around 28mm. But easy to set up tubeless and, as one would hope,...

    Yeah, they pay out the nose. Not in the form of income taxes, though, or at least not in many/most of the cantons. Just *everything* else.

    I am headed over for work in a couple weeks -- bringing...

    Ha - I knew that Learn Klingon book would someday pay off! :-)

    Yeah, I am leaning toward the road bike for simplifying my weekend, but the grass doubletrack on slicks does sound sketchy. I will...

    If I had the day off, I'd ride up and do Murderer's Row, then ride home. That should fill those hours.

    Yeah, I'd imagine C&O conditions would be a little boggy with these thunderstorms dumping...

    I'm doing it this year (finally!).

    For logistical reasons I'm contemplating of doing it on my road bike (28mm tires) -- terrible idea?

    Maybe switch to cartridge bearings?

    Obviously repacking those doesn't make much sense, but seals will likely make that irrelevant. I haven't yet owned a bike/headset long enough to have to...

    Yeah, that sounds perfectly reasonable to me. And they (GCN) certainly have no excuse for not knowing the rules.

    Well, it's not that the shim comes off. It's that the hitch sleeve (i.e. that attaches to the Wehoo and slides down over the shim) could slide up and off the plastic shim. That is what's happened...

    Yeah, as DrP points out, there are pull-up bars on 4MRT in Shirlington. There's also one at Mace Park at 4MRT and Patrick Henry Dr.
