    Multi-user paths are for everyone. If you want to go fast, ride on the road. There are no laws
    against walking four abreast on a MUP, walking a dog on a MUP, children riding bikes on a MUP.

    Temps in the low 70's this morning made for an excellent 45 mile ride today. Humidity never

    Well, I'm not really trying to do anything right now. I was just curious and I like to read
    such. I would go more in the lightweight/efficiency direction if I change anything on my bikes.
    I have heard...

    White or blue bar tape would contrast the existing colors on your bike. I like white bar tape
    but cork tape gets too dirty too fast. More expensive, washable tapes like Zipp and Lizard
    Skins are great...

    Andy,I use Polar bottles and don't have an issue with plastic aftertaste. I also have several

    at home. Ev...
