    Five broken spokes!? Felt a little wobbly, eh? At least the brake wasn't rubbing! The stock rear wheel on my disc brake bike was sort of defective. I broke about six spokes, but I never rode with more than three broken at the same time. I should have tried to warranty that wheel. A good reason to buy from a shop that cares about it's customers.

    It's much more common to break drive side spokes on rear wheels (vs. non-drive side) and they are usually harder to replace. Disc brakes complicate changing non-drive side spokes and perhaps because of that, most of the broken spokes on this wheel were non-drive side. In fact I did not have a Torx wrench that provided sufficient leverage to break the rotor bolts free (brake rotor bolts are installed with Loctite). I recommend the Park Tool T-handle Torx wrench.

    I think I've still got my old wheels from your very same bike if you want to use while you're waiting for warranty replace. -Jeff

    Not a morning commute but an evening one - I had a work happy hour at Churchkey last night. My two coworkers left 5-10 minutes before I did. They walked out of the building, across the street to the bus stop, and took the bus directly to Churchkey. I went downstairs, changed, grabbed my bike, rode to Churchkey, locked up my bike, and beat them there by five minutes.

    Oh, and I was briefly held up on the way by a gentleman driving a shuttle bus who wanted to u-turn on PA Ave. I told him, loudly but politely, that no turns were allowed. Then I told him again, and again, then stopped in the intersection where he was trying to turn and told him agian, then he decided to turn right.

    Rod nailed it, a bike shop that really DOES care! I'm good though, Jeff, thanks. Not commuting too much lately, and can use the Trek for the few days I do. Thanks though! It's truly appreciated. See you Saturday and Sunday for sure!

    What's the similarity between subway commuters and bike commuters?

    Neither can fit their asses on/in their seats

    [Ug. My repair parts cant come fast enough. Day one of riding the subway commuting. I am getting a 2nd bike for xmas!]

    Smacked the alarm off at 00:dark:30 this morning. Went back to sleep. Now I'm not sure if I'm depressed because I didn't ride, or wanting to ride because I'm depressed. Either way, there's only one solution. Ride.
