I already have 4 batteries on my bike to keep charged. What's a couple more?

Oh, I've got 4 already as well, I don't need more.

I hope I'm rolling at least 2.8" post apocalypse.

That doesn't stop most drivers I encounter.

Rode a little over 30 miles this morning in 80°+ temps. I drank about 550 ml of water. Which is low for me at that distance and temp. Garmin, in all of its wisdom, reported “record consumption.”

What? :foo:

More aero if you reach down and grab a fork leg in each hand to steer.

Wait - do you mean it's not about drinking water, or it's about not drinking water?

Yes.

How can this saddle be comfortable? It's numbing.

New commuter build underway. Unfortunately I don't have a rigid fork that fits so I've gotta stick with the yucky sproing.

You still could. The only difference is the anchor holding stupid down. :rolleyes:

Dunno, haven't tried it yet. Someone was blowing them out for $20 so I couldn't say no. Definitely needs to be tilted down a bit, even after putting on a rear tyre. It's geared towards upright riding position.

They say those cutouts are a cure-all :)

Didn't expect the cutout.
