Schwalbe Durano Plus!

I can't say enough good things about these tires. Durable, nimble, easy rolling. However, I am the only person I know riding them. I'd be curious to others reactions.

If you don't want to be chastised for not stopping then stop. Sounds to me like you're upset because someone called you on it. If you're that comfortable running the stop then you should be equally...

What do you call it when a car has to screech to a stop because a cyclist did not yield the right of way? I see this more often than the other way around. Is this also a Portland Stop?

Your legs will get stronger.

If you keep doing your RSTs you will notice your legs get stronger (both upper and lower leg).

You should not suffer from constant knee pain. If you do, then your bike is not sized/positioned...
