    No more ride until Saturday. I it will be a short one but then it's back to no riding until the
    end of the month. Currently sitting on the pool deck of our ship, in Seattle, waiting for them
    to get th...

    There's washable white tape, like Zipp and Lizard Skin. They wash up really nice with the right

    I gotta warn you John. Everyone that I know who had an iPhone 4 that upgraded to 5 were very
    disappointed by the battery life of the newer phone (thank Apple and their obsession with thin
    phone). It's...

    My iPhone 4 didn't have Siri but the new 5c does so I'm going to really start using it. I had
    an app on my 4 that worked on voice commands but it only did certain tasks (email, messages,

    Nothing wrong with Sora in my book. Agree! I had Sora brifters with the rest of the drivetrain
    being Tiagra, on my Defy 2 and they worked great. Just not as quick and crisp as my Ultegra.

    Looks like you're in business now John. Hope you get some good battery life on the newer iPhone
