  1. I have the Crank Bros Acid 2 pedals on my Baron. They have been a great first clipless pedal for me. They have a large platform and I can ride my bike with flip flops if I want. I can also clip in a lot faster than my boyfriend can in his Shimanos and he's been riding bikes in a professional capacity for more than 10 years. And if I miss the first attempt on clipping in from a stoplight to get through an intersection, I can easily pedal through and just re-try on the other side. Haven't seen the Candys in person to compare the platform size. I'm actually almost ready to buy some lighter-weight Eggbeaters to replace the Acids (and will then likely move the Acids to my mountain bike).
  2. I have the Baron Nightingale (cross bike). I have yet to try commuting or touring with it but I did have Geoff build the frame so it can take a rack. But like he mentioned, I also haven't been able to bring myself to actually put one on it. I've been riding the bike a lot more lately because I'm training to do the STP, and I find that I don't generally use the drops when I'm going slow or around much traffic. (But otherwise, I'm really happy they are there.) I also had Geoff build mine with canti brakes in case I want to race. Coming from a full-suspension MTB with dual hydraulic Hayes, I have to say that the Pauls actually work pretty awesome. Hope to try it for a commute or two in the not-too-distant future but the thought of riding through Bellevue isn't very appealing. Loving my bike, though.
  3. Here's something to warp this thread:
  4. Sausagefest was excellent! Great to see so many familiar faces ... and meet some new ones. :-)
  5. Thanks, but I don't think it could go down any further! Looking forward to the show, though!
  6. Excellent cause! Timmy is always entertaining, and this is so close to my home I probably won't be able to stay away.
  7. I'd buy them if they came in a 22.0 shell. When the is someone going to manufacture a 22.0 AT boot???
  8. I don't think I've ever had a jacket where the hood actually fit over the helmet. That would definitely add to the warmth factor.
  9. I think it's 72 hours in Seattle and I would guess many cities have similar ordinances. But yeah; it's more likely when/if someone complains.
  10. Ha! It's time for hitting the cold wet snow!!!
  11. This sounds like a "disaster" waiting to happen. I might have to rent another garage if I keep amassing more gear!
