"I'm fine down to about freezing without anything. If I try to ride in the high 20s without booties, I get cold toes (my commute during the winter is about 75 minutes), however I also notice that my ankles get pretty chilly. I suspect while the…"

"I've been stranded by Kenda tubes one time too many, and will never purchase any of their products again. they were the only manufacturer selling tires in the old Schwinn 26-inch size for a long time so I was forced to use them when I still had…"

"Of course, San Hamel had no way of knowing the consequences of his actions nearly four years ago. The only thing which he did know, and which probably didn't cross his mind as he turned the key, was that daddy had gotten him off scott-free a…"

Skip Montanaro 14.5mi replied to ChiBikeGeek's discussion Bobby Cann Updates: Ryne San Hamel Pleads Guilty, Receives 10 Days in Jail

"maxy, super maxy, mighty competition, super mighty competition, grand mighty (75?)..any others?" that's from a bikeforums thread. it seems like there are tons of variants on 'mighty' 'grand' etc. their model names are so grandiose.
