    probably have enough unmaintained cars and distracted accidents to need a break down lane when people expect to drive straight through in light traffic. I haven't been on that section in years

    was shopping for new end of season pants as I haven't worn mine all summer with a tight waist. Was looking at reviews for size comparison and read about waist cinch straps. Checked mine and sho nuff they were cinched and forgotten. they fit now. I probably would have already bought more except they are mesh with kevlar and discontinued .

    So when traffic is heavy they open an extra lane but lower the speed limit super low...

    i just called and they said they will have the salt truck out. As long as grip is comparable with the street, I'm fine with that.

  14. Serviced the fork for the first time in 2 years I've owned the 09 model bike. Had considered seeing if I could jam a 27.5 wheel in front but found a deal on $10 2.25 folding schwalbe nobby nics with better nobs and 1/2 in bigger diameter than my old tires and similar weight!
  15. Contact patches technically never change size, just shape
  16. Wider tires get pinched if not on a wider rim. Multi compound should do better if you aren't on them.

    What did you do to your bicycle today?

    Finally figured out the drivetrain drag in the recumbent frameset i'm setting up wasn't the 2 chains, power idler, or multi axis return idler. Turns out 9sp FWD forks handmade by a 1 man company may not be 11sp compatible without modifications. The cassette lockring was rubbing a fork weld but the drag varied as it turned like a stuck chain link.
