    City Place Cafe, at 17th and L St NW. Great coffee and bagels in the morning and sandwiches, soups and salads at lunch. Give them a try if you’re down there.

    Now we're cooking. Here's my two-fer. "Bon Air" (today) and "Memorial" (yesterday). I realize no point will be awarded for the latter.

    I'm the same way. I'm more interested in new scenery than in points, so I'd rather spend a few minutes coming up with answers on my own, and then think about where I might find them IRL, especially...

    Italian restaurant

    In front of Osteria da Nino in Shiraz-lington. I've never been, but they serve spaghetti, and don't have "zz" or "garden" in the name or signage. Possibly the only...

    There's the rub. Marketers still need to emphasize the non-bike like aspects of these vehicles (battery, top speed, etc, ) to sell them, it's just product differentiation. Advocates have to downplay...

    My only encounter with Pete was at the finish of last year's Disaster Relief Trials. He was helping me, of course, holding my bike steady so I could lift a big water jug out of the front basket...

    Yup, it's the same. I just flipped the order of the spacer and "cone". All good. Now both the cone and locknut are outboard of the freewheel body, and accessible to a wrench.

    1. Probably not.

    2. No, but maybe you could have the bike powder-coated gloss white or gloss black and use celeste replacement decals, cable housing, bar tape, etc., as accents. Those are pretty...

    This product looks really interesting and I'd give it a try if it were my frame. Apparently, this stuff doesn't run or spatter, which are the main issues with rattle-can paint jobs.
