    It can be done and perhaps folks here have had some success with stitching, patching, and gluing; my comment probably reflects more on me and my caution/inclination to replace something rather than...

    With a sidewall gash, would you want to? I know they're new, but at some point, peace of mind is easy to purchase. I've patched this kind of thing temporarily with a dollar bill or a tube patch, but...

    That's a separate issue or two--one of which is a partially torn ACL that we decided not to repair at the time, so the knee slops around some and causes some other issues. The only pain from the...
  4. Truly has to be taken with a grain of salt, but...

    Truly has to be taken with a grain of salt, but it's roughly a watt per pound, so there's some real difference there. Other confounding factors would be the two different bikes (the accuracy of their...

    That's interesting. I compared the Hogback climb to ... someone who rode near me but who weighs maybe 35 pounds more. This person had to do 196 watts to get up in about the same time (within 20...

    It may be obvious to those who know him, but Judd is being a bit modest here. I was unaware of him ever tucking in behind me or drafting on me. Other than the first climb when I didn't realize he and...

    Yes, this bike was purchased assembled. The only thing I've done to it is change the brakes on it to Spyres. I did not notice any grease prior to last night--in other words, I don't think it was...
  8. I appreciate this discussion because I find the...

    I appreciate this discussion because I find the different standards/sizes really confusing and I always have trouble remembering which tool is needed or if I have the right tool. I think I've just...

    Bummer about the meniscus. For what it's worth, I had a piece of my meniscus removed that looked like a fricken' garlic clove and was riding to work in less than a week (okay, that was under the time...

    Like Scoot, I have a pic at mile post 21:

    Unlike Scoot and some others, I turned around at Mile 30, thinking that was practically 211 when it's really about a mile short (I hold my...

    I'm at N+1 = 7 right now and absolutely must sell one before I can do anything. Then I'd also have to sell my current gravel bike, and my SO isn't going to understand that since it's pretty new. "But...

    14630

    The numbers needed are all right there, yet somehow it seems pointless. Important folks have important work to do and can't be bothered with using open parking spaces right next to where...

    I am tempted as well. That is beautiful and would fit. But I dunno if I can justify riding a bike that won a category at MonsterCross. That horse would just be impatient/disappointed with my riding.
  14. I'm amazed at that as well, but I'm more amazed...

    I'm amazed at that as well, but I'm more amazed at how often drivers seem to be angry at the person they hit or almost hit.
  15. I had been discussing with Mr. Lumberjack which...

    I had been discussing with Mr. Lumberjack which bikes we'd be using, and we said that rain or shine, it was the nice bike. Now that I have Spyre disc brakes on my rain bike, I've changed my mind and...

    I'll be there. I don't mind getting wet, but my descending skills in the rain are questionable, so I'll be going more slowly than I'd hoped.
  17. Yes, northbound is toward my house, and with the...

    Yes, northbound is toward my house, and with the uphill section, it feels worse. But generally, it's a well-used, four-lane, curvy-ish road where drivers will go 45 mph, and I'm not that comfortable...
  18. 20% off Soma!

    Soma has a 20% off sale through the 23rd. Now wouldn't be a bad time to be needing a Wolverine frame.

    So I rode this each direction last night. For me, sticking to Washington without the bike lane is better than the proposed bike route, but I could see how it would make some nervous. The hills are...

    I wrote, not that it will do any good. Arlington only tackles the low-hanging fruit. They do not deserve Gold-level cycling status.

    A couple hundred cyclists a day going through there taking the...

    Reviving because the solution turns out to be to replace the Promax brakes with TRP Sypres.

    The Masi still has the Promax, but I had the same problem on a Cannondale Synapse with Promax brakes....

    Teensy bit jealous, but I will drown my sorrows at Right Proper after work. It's entirely possible I'll need to leave before the official start of the happy hour, but I'll still be right and proper.

    My name isn't Mark, but if someone yelled "Mark" at me while we passed, I'd likely respond.

    Yesterday was the day for missed connections. Don't much feel like angry-ing up the blood by recounting...

    Mr. Kelley said the cyclist was a "gentleman," which leaves quite a few of us out.

    The barrels and tape were back yesterday afternoon; this morning around 6:30, the tape was broken again but the barrels remained. The whole process is slightly amusing.
