Hey Kelvin,

I'm a journalism grad student at Northwestern, and I'm writing an article on the Divvy bikes. I noticed you'd commented on one of the Divvy threads. Do you mind if I ask you some questions for my article? I've included a couple Qs below. My deadline is at 4:00, sorry for the late notice! Please let me know if you'd be able to help, I would so appreciate it!

- How much do you use Divvy? How much do you use your other bikes?
- What have your Divvy experiences been like?
- Do you bike during the winter? Will you Divvy during the winter?

My email is Once again-- thanks so much!

Hi Kelvin, last year you posted a review for your Dry Duks rainsuit. How's it holding up since then?  Have you found that it's too bulky?  Thinking of getting one.  Thanks!

I have one set of Superbe Hubs. They are currently laced into some Mavic GEL280 sew-up wheels. No superbe shifters. I do have one set of Superbe-Pro track pedals NIB (never been on a bike... or even out of the box except to take some photos). I'm the original owner. Now those are definitely a diamond in the rough. $100 if you want 'em.
