I usually don't do much road improvements since I'm a bit of a fan of many obstacles. I'll go out of my way by a couple of blocks to hit a cobblestone or dirt road, for instance.

I saw this on...

That's possible. Of course another thing that might happen to an out-of-towner is simply being in the wrong place.

For instance if you hang out on MLK Blvd., not near a well-biked cross street...

Sounds like you had coaster brakes to me.

I vaguely remember a couple of brands coming out with coaster braked MTBs back then. More like Cruisers without the curves, in a way.

I was down in Porltand for evening rush hour Monday.

Just as many bikes as cars on SE 7th. More bikes than cars on SE Ladd. Esplanade was stuffed to the gills with bikes of course.

I've followed it to the end and beyond before. The old railbed goes all the way to Deep Creek where it abruptly ends where a trestle used to be. I hiked my bike across the creek and tried to keep...

I rather like my Vancouver neighborhood, but yeah, not too fond of how it is out there on the east side. I'm the same way about certain PDX neighborhoods also. I used to work at Toys R Us on 82nd...

Found a bike in the dumpster. Let me know if you're missing a Trek 4000. Give description and/or serial number to claim.

The Obamas are on different bikes everytime I see them. Some of them must be rentals.

The worst part at the moment is Kenton to downtown Vancouver, IMO. Northbound on Columbia St. in Vancouver is a pretty mellow ride.

I'd probably cheat and bus it to North Van if I were you...

I've had good results with goo-gone and acetone.

I don't bother anymore, however. New tape seems to stick to crusty old glue just fine and covers it up so no one sees it.

I'd imagine they would sooner add that model to the long list of complete bikes that they do not ship than start processing returns for such circumstances as this.

I can't think of any situations around here where "long diversions around one-way systems" are much of an impediment, personally.

I've never tried Flat Away, but run Mr. Tuffies in all my clincher tires. It's a nicer ride without tire liners, to be sure, but I like the ride of my 25mm Michelins with Mr. Tuffy better than the...
