How the PC hardware market has changed in the past 5 years...

Agreed. I'd add that disk brake pads wear out in 700 - 900 miles. That's a month for a commuter like me. I rode my Schwinn Mesa's caliper brakes for 20 years without a thought.

Interesting. I've got a Dawes hybrid and I don't like the flat bar. I used to have a bike with drops and would like to go back to them, but it's hard trying to figure out brake and gear levers without re-engineering or spending a lot. You've obviously put a bit of thought into it all. Food for thought.

I've got a calendar reminder every where to remind me of when I bought a Fuji bike and started riding my bike everywhere. Why? Because things have been this great crazy adventure, ever since.
