My brakes seem to be rubbing. Any ideas? I may need to borrow a truing table.

Your brakes are just adhering to an old-fashioned concept of rigidity. They need to go with the flow. You need a topologically dynamic frame.

I didn't even read the books, but I'm just blown away at the people getting bent about getting spoiler'd. If you're watching a TV show about an old book series, you just don't get to be mad about being spoiler'd.

Okay everyone, this is it.  The big one.  The one we've all been waiting for....  The 2014 National Bike Challenge is almost upon us!

Last year was our first group competing as a team and we took 6th place nationally in the standings.  Even though this is a US challenge, last year I'm pretty sure there were a good number of people from around the world competing on all of the teams.  There are chances to win some great swag, including a year's supply of toilet paper and some cool bikes and jerseys and stuff...  but that's not why we're doing it is it?

They've changed things up a bit, there's a specific site for it separate from any logger, and you can use a couple of different apps to log your miles (details: https://nationalbikechallenge.org/app-gallery ) and have some more statistics and a worse font and some other things.  The points work the same: 1 point for every mile you ride.  20 points for every day you ride.  Ride 1 mile every day, get 21 points a day.  Over the course of the 5 month challenge that's 3192 points, or enough to qualify for the diamond level prizes.  Commute by bike 5 days a week for all 22 weeks of the challenge and you have a 2 mile each way trip, but you don't ride at all on the weekends?  Still enough for the diamond level :)  

This game is skewed heavily in our favor, so let's win it this year, ok?  Log your miles when you ride to work and play!
