    I switched to SPDs because I wasn't getting my foot set properly in the toe clips and it was really hurting my knees. Knowing my legs are aligned properly all the time makes for much happier legs....

    I'm going to go ahead and let you explain that one to my wife.

    @1/8th - I'm not wild about Surly and I don't like Specialized's corporate attitude. Do you generally ride with track-style drops?

    Suggest a fixed gear for me

    I've never ridden a fixed gear bike, but descriptions from many of you (as well as the number of you who have tried it and really liked it) make me think I would like it.

    You know, we could make lots of these changes without nearly the opposition if we just moved the Inaugural Parade to 395. They'd hardly have to disrupt traffic at all.
