  1. @pistard I just had a dream that my Dura-Ace 7700 was ripped from my old Bianchi, and then vandal in his haste was bitten by a giant Cobra. (Cobras are indigenous to San Diego County and frequently eat humans). Afterwards the vandal and I prayed to the S… »

  2. @scaler911 Just get ‘em used on eBay. Usually like 1/2-price or something. – C »

  4. @The Pressure Would recommend Kreitler Rollers. Smooth and durable. Various drum sizes available. »

  3. @frank Thank you Frank. Acknowledged and understood. CNG »

  4. @pistard  Blast! Caught red-handed! Those crappy Giro-brand gloves have since worn out.. low-quality stuff. I got a couple sets of black leather gloves to replace them. As for the cables, would somebody please give me some instructions on how to clean up… »

  5. @DCR Thanks Man. May head out there next year sometime. You guys still have any of that blue crystal? It’s great for bike riding. »

  6. I’m 29, 30 in January. I ride alone b/c finding ppl to ride with is a pain in the ass. Nonetheless, I promised myself I’m going to try harder to make more cycling friends. Also because I don’t really like talking.. listening is much easier.. and more prod… »
