    Most of all, remember the reward: What goes up must come down.

    For the "mind of matter" part of climbing, on a long, tough ascent try setting interim goals,
    like making it to the next telephone pole or fencepost or whatever.

    I've found using my iPad to watch movies helps a little to counter the boredom.Where do you put
    the iPad? Do you have some kind of mount for it?

    Does anyone here use--and like--a helmet-mounted rearview mirror?

    Update: WypAll cloth plus Simple Green is helping a lot. It takes more scrubbing than it would
    with a heavy-duty solvent, but I would like to avoid using those on my tires.

    I would replace a tire with a one-inch cut. You can make an emergency repair by reinforcing the
    cut area so the tube doesn't bulge out--a dollar bill wrapped around the tube is the classic
    road repair...

    Our friends at Kimberly Clark make a product called "WypAll". They are hand cleaner towelettes
    that work great on white bar tape and white wall tires. Removes chain tattoo like it was never
    there also...

    Any recommendations for cleaning light-colored sidewalls? (Please, no lectures about how
    righteous dudes let their bikes stay dirty.)
