    I don't want to dissuade you from the Castelli cap; but my experience is that they're not that small ... I have a fluo yellow Castelli Performance cycling cap and it fits my 59cm head fine.

    I think they're just euro-fit, right? Or do they run small even for euro sizing? According to their website, I need a large. That sounds consistent with other euro-sized jerseys/bibs I have (and...

    No, no; I am just gonna get one of their non-race (yellow) kits. Free advertising -- plus it's a nice, relatively hi-viz kit for the early morning rides.

    I don't have time to race (or to train)...

    I would say "just ride more", but obviously that does not apply in this case. :-)

    I am hoping to pick up one of the District Taco kits at some point, which will be my first Castelli kit. I hear...

    Yeah, @mstone, I completely agree. You can sell the car and save money riding an inexpensive bike with inexpensive components. Millions, maybe billions of people do that on a regular basis, I...

    Good points from vvill, vern, others. I seem to forget that I have a much cheaper/easier (non-bike) commute than those that live in the city: free parking, no serious traffic, less than 1 gallon of...

    Agreed! I ran Open Corsas for a couple rides when I found some for $35, but I was terrified of flatting them :-) probably unfounded. They were super smooth, though. I sold them installed on my...

    Yeah, good points. There are lots of benefits to cycling; just may not result in a net $$ savings in the end. Maybe if cycling means you can drop a gym membership? Or if you have to pay for your own...

    Yeah, we have been down this discussion before, but I take issue with the idea that the average cyclist will save much money commuting by bike. If you really focus on getting the most inexpensive...

    Yeah, I'm running the 120tpi version. They definitely don't feel as fast/supple as the 700x23 GP4000S II w/ latex tubes on my road bike, but I think that's a pretty high bar. They are nice, though;...

    And it probably is a little redundant with the Colossal. ... But nice price! Still, I would choose the Colossal Ti in that ("endurance road") category.

    I love the new ti Foundry bike/frame,...

    I think this (Strava LGG) is the competition to the Pave? At least it was mentioned side-by-side with the Vittoria tire in Velo article on wide tires (for cobbles). Their review suggested that the...

    +1 on using your road bike. I started off commuting on a lemond road bike; it was awesome. In fact, if I didn't need to tow my son home in a trailer [that can't hook up to my carbon road bike's...

    That sounds pretty solid! :-) For me, 3500-4000 miles is "great". I replace them when they start flatting or showing casing threads, though.

    Regular Gatorskins. I have fallen using Gatorskins a couple of times in wet conditions, but this is quite anecdotal! I have also read that the GP4000S are grippier and this combined with no falls...

    Yeah, agreed; these 28s do seem narrower than the 700x28 Duranos. Surprising, since Velo had these measured as one of the wider 28c tires. I haven't actually pulled out the caliper to measure, but...

    The Celment Strada LGG are nice tires -- rode in on them this AM. Definitely feel faster than the Duranos, which is nice. I'm running at 90psi which is plenty comfy.

    Yeah, I meant pinch flat. Hilarious autocorrect :-)

    Ok, I will keep them around 90psi. I just default to around 100psi on the 28mm tires I have been running (Duranos), though certainly comfort...

    Oh? I think mine are at 105. So you are saying to run them lower? (Not that you are lunch flatting at 105, right?)

    Glad to hear the good review! Seemed like a nice option to try, cheaper than the...
