"Nope. I don't. Funny,  I was just thinking about that yesterday. I really don't worry about it and my longer puffer doesn't have a drop of street gunk on it."

Epic!

I'd love to hear about the no-doubt epic rides people took this week.  It was really rough out there, at least on my level.  I went out on a short jaunt on Wednesday and learned a few harsh lessons:  1)  Fasten your tricky hat chin strap while you're still inside and warm; 2)  AA batteries can actually be rendered powerless by extreme cold, to the point where a blinkie can't even blink; 3)  Make sure you know which way the wind will be blowing when you're coming back, especially when it's over…See More

"I've had good success on Craigslist as well.  It's remarkable how many nice bikes end up hanging in someone's garage for years until they go on there."
