    Contes live chat: thumb's up

    Biking in the wet the past couple of days reminded me of my plan to replace my Space Horse's tepid cantilever brakes with v-brakes. On a whim, I used the online chat function on the Contes website --...

    I've seen cars drive up to the gate and turn around, but never this. Incredible. I bet the driver has found a way to rationalize this as somehow not their fault.

    Most or all of these roads are open to bicycles and pedestrians. There are quite a few people out but I wouldn't say it's crowded. Definitely consider checking it out.
