Almost all of the bike riding I did as a kid was completely "unscripted" by my parents. It is what we did to entertain ourselves. Whether it was...

CF made sense to me when I was running rock hard 23-25mm tires. I liked how it damped the vibrations. But once I started running 32-38mm tires at low pressure, the vibrations are not really an issue,...

Yeah, unfortunately Salsa kind of screwed up the placement of those braze-ons, and the brake caliper blocks one of the rack stays.
