That's rough, especially when you get good early season miles in the legs. On another note, should I use SPF 30 or 45 today? Thoughts?

Always go with the highest number Even if it wears off before it technically would loose effectiveness, it is still more effective.

Oh, and I would need some of that here today as well, if I wasn't at work all day

“You can’t just say that there’s no pollution as a result of riding a bicycle.”
Wow...Just wow. It must be fun to just make outlandishly off-the-cuff, psuedo-scientific statements, without doing any research. Fail.

I can't imagine how pissed I would be if CA tried something like this. I noticed in a few other states, too, but mainly here in CA, that paving of existing roads often excludes the bike lane, if there is one, leading to a jagged, uneven ridge/seam where the new pavement ends near the edge of the bike lane. You want to tax me for riding my bike, but then not use that to pave the surface I'm traveling on? Good luck with that...Not to mention that cyclists aren't even allowed on all the roads that the tax revenue would likely be used on. Let me ride on every mile of public pavement! [/rant]

Also, on the Cross-Check, I wasn't crazy about the semi-horizontal dropouts. They're a PITA, with fenders.

What you're looking to do is exactly why I left skinny-tired bikes. There, simply, are too many dirt and gravel roads to explore.
Sweet, thanks for that link (there goes my afternoon). I'm not too worried about fenders, honestly. Other people might need them but I've never seen them as necessary.

I got tired of road oil, mud, and berries getting thrown up on me and the bike. Also, they make riding in the rain much more pleasant.

You may consider this frameset, too.

Yeah, not far off. Just a bit steeper in the HT. I'd love to build up one, in a full-on classic style.

From Interbike '12.

I was thinking about one for a while but found a gen 1 Fargo in my size that was a good price, so now I have a project....

Chis, what size bike do you ride? I have some 54.5 TT frames available--one Cross Check (used) and one fancy full carbon TriCross (brand new). Both have fork and stay spacing for big-ass tires. If this size is in your ballpark, let me know.

Sadly, I ride a 59/60 cm

I Like it. I think it is almost a necessity with how thick A pillars are getting on cars these days. My parents have a Buick SUV that can hide a bus!
