Any insight is appreciated.
What you have is yer tube pushing thru the rim strip. Replace with a Velox and that should go away.

It currently has a Schwalbe rim liner, which seems kinda hard for that use. Thanks for the tip.

Don't underestimate your influence....

My KLR's engine started it's slow, ugly slide to destruction in February 2007. I'd just moved to Savannah with just whatever fit into the gym bag on my KLR and populated my apartment by dumpster diving.

When the KLR gave up the ghost, I bought a Schwinn from Target and rode it 1200 miles in 12 months. Got a 98 Trek 2300 off Craigslist for $300 when I decided to get "serious" about bicycles.

Started doing "fitness events" like the odd 5k or 10k last year and then completed a metric Century, Century and Duathlon this year. Still got the Savannah Double Pump Bridge Run left to go this year.

Since I've started riding bicycles (3000 miles so far this year), 2 other coworkers have done the same (although intermittently) and NINE folks from work have signed up for the Bridge Run.

I'm no track star but my increase in fitness has been noticeable to those around me. I credit my incremental goals (run/ride and event every two months or so) with my success.

Keep chatting with your coworkers! Working at being fit and talking about your success impresses other folks whether we realize it or not.

Keep on keeping on and challenge those around you to get fit!

At the end of the bike leg of the Duathlon...

It's gonna take the poor photographers a while to process pictures of 4000 idiots in spandex. Race didn't have too much drama play out in it, I just feel really bad for all the sport class clydes that got stuck in front of the single speed class. Granted, some of those guys can really hammer, but a lot of them- not so much. I sort of felt like pac-man out there picking off riders, one by one.

I'm slightly more stoked about today's race. It was a non-championship series cyclocross race, so a bunch of us from B ran A. I managed to stay on the lead lap, the current B class champion (who I've come very close to beating before) took third.

I'm movin' on up next year.

Nah, I'm that creepy weird guy who's always prancing about the office in spandex. My coworkers tend to avoid me and the sports that have turned me into the weirdo I am.

They are impressed by my change in health though, they just find the means a little too much.

Do tell...
I got one of those, too.

A Schmidt hub with an Edelux is better.

Way, way, WAAAAAY better.

Well, I'm not exactly freed - I have a helmet mounted MiniNewt for those pitch black twisty bits I need to navigate.

The fork mounted dyno lights with a broad pattern are great from anything less than say, a 60degree, turn.

I need a helmet light if I want to see what I'm turning into beyond 60 degrees.

Please, if you are a more avid Motorcyclist than bicyclist, remember that grabbing a handfull of front brake on your pedal-bike can get you low-sided under an SUV if it's the RIGHT hand you are useing!

I did on the cross bike, but all the others are N. American std (ft = left)

I personally don't have an issue switching back and forth.

Let all doubt be removed. Beer is good for cycling!
