Proposed Changes to ChiLFT at Fullerton
2 Replies

This should be of interest to other Chainlinkers. My quick take - this will be a nice update to the trail at Fullerton. The stretch to be filled in just south of Fullerton gets deluged with water in…Continue

"Skip, early is no problem for me. I'm out the door shortly after 5am. But distance may be an issue as I'm further north in HP. I'm usually pedaling into Linden around 45 minutes later."

"I will say my 5/10's are more comfortable than vans. The sole is a bit stiffer, but not rigid.   They are also quite comfortable off the bike. "

Anne Alt replied to JMinHP's discussion Flat Pedal Shoes - Worth it?
"I just use mountain bike shoes or bike sandals without any cleats installed. They're easy to walk in but provide enough extra stiffness to make my feet happier. For the bike sandals, I've been happy with both Keen and Lake."

Let me know if you still have trouble finding the cap. As I mentioned on the page, it's under "accessories". Make sure you pick USPS as your courier if that's all you are ordering. Hope that helps!
