    Ha, I go plenty slow enough, and not particularly interested in being unhorsed any more than I already am! As the owner of a rigid 26" bike as well I can't imagine wanting to ever go back to that on...

    Found it - looks like I stopped once but that may not been because of stairs. It is pretty narrow, and there's no curb cut.

    I think I had perhaps one or two wheels with Presta tubes in Schrader rims with grommets, but total mileage like that was probably under 2000, maybe a lot less. I don't remember exactly, sorry! I...

    peterw_diy replied before I saw this.

    The other advantage is - it's universal - as in you can use a Presta tube in a Schrader-drilled rim but not vice versa. Most cyclists who carry a spare tube...

    My first ride on Jones H-Bars thanks to @Dirt - surprised at how much difference they make for my wrists! Almost makes me think I can go MTBing again... almost.

    Yessss... moto-style rules! I have all my bikes like that. The main issue really is when someone borrows your bike and then they're like... huh. I do have a lingering right wrist injury right now...

    Np! I don't ride the MVT often but with any route even if 99% of it is clear, that 1% of unseen ice can really get you. I've crashed enough times on ice not to want to do it again!

    I had a 1x7 (13-34 cassette) but it dropped when it was bumpy. Also had a 1x9 (9-26 Capreo), same thing.

    I wouldn't say you need a clutch rear derailleur. I guess it depends a little on how much chain slack you're running (and also if you're on a small cog when you hit a bump). But I can only comment...
