    These are popping up all over town.Small, in a yard, book swap libraries.There are 3 within a
    few blocks of my house... tried that in the area several years ago. Doesn't work too well in a
    big city. ...

    I agree! I can't really see taking money out of a retirement account for anything but an
    emergency, unless you are already retired and have enough money to live on.Sent from my iPad

    Not 100% sure but I think that the older Shimano Sora (with thumbshifters) will work for what
    you want to do. If not, look at the Shimano 2400 series.

    I would like to know just who it is that's buying these $10K+ bikes and especially where that
    shop is that is selling 5-10 a week. We have around 40 or so bike shops, here in the Tampa
    area, and I've ...

    Very heavy overcast and extreme fog this morning. First time in a long time that I needed a
    front and rear light to ride in a MUP. Went with the wife this morning as she needed to get in
    at least 21 m...

    Well, she did it! As of yesterday, she was 21 miles shy of getting the 41 points needed to get
    Platinum. This morning she rode 26 miles. Really proud of her. Now on to the Fall Challenge.

    Lou,The RFLKT+ is one I would get since I will be connecting Gale's Garmin speed/cadence sensor
    to the RFLKT. She also has a Garmin HR monitor that I will use if ever her Forerunner dies or
    she gets s...

    Thanks Tru! That is close to what my friend at the LBS said. Since probably 1% of my rides are
    close to or over 7 hours, I don't think battery drainage is going to be a big problem for the
    other 99%. ...

    Great job Wild! We all knew you could do it.On the same note, I checked my wife's points and
    after tomorrow's ride, she will finish with a platinum badge. She's all excited as she never
    thought she wo...

    Thanks Tru! Not in a big rush as I am using an old Sigma BC 509 basic computer, for the time
    being, so I can see my speed without having to turn on the phone. I did talk to my LBS guy that
    said he and...
