    As Jabberwocky mentioned, the disc is the brake that provides more stopping power. BUT the other significant reason people put the disc up front is because the only reason they are doing the "mullet...

    Ah ha! That dual valve thing looks new, actually. The ones I have had were simple plastic ones that were supposed to just push on and stay there by magic (they didnt'). I also tried a metal...

    Do you have issues with the pump falling over on account of top-mounted gauge? Given my experience with the Topeak constantly falling over, I would choose the Air Tower 1 model that Phatboing...

    I like Lezyne pumps a lot -- with the thread-on valves (the other valves are junk IMO). I own two; a standard high-pressure road one and the "dirt drive" pump that puts out a lot of volume but only...

    Yeah, if there's lightning out, I drive home. There have been very few times over the past years where this has happened, but it does happen. If it was just me, I'd ride, but my wife would rather I...

    This is true.

    Yeah, I can't bring myself to wear white shoes, because I assume they'll just get dirty. Of course, I have no problem wearing hi-viz yellow/green boots in the winter! :)

    It just seems odd that I can buy a carbon bike frame for less than the price of a Weehoo. (Not to mention aluminum.) It's got one wheel and a single-speed drivetrain. I'm not arguing that the...

    I like the Weehoo and would buy it again, but that is one heavy contraption. The new "5 lbs lighter" version must still weigh 30lbs. Why they didn't use aluminum (or carbon!) is a mystery to me. ...

    Maybe Italian Store coffee club (if they open early; word is they're getting a coffee bar).

    I think it depends on who you ask for sizing conversions. e.g. http://www.i18nguy.com/l10n/shoes.html shows a US M size 13 being somewhere around 47 (and a 14 being 48). That is consistent with my...
