I got a pack of 10 tubes a few years back, about $5.00 each, normally about $10.00, the extra long valve stem was the least of my worries.

If you want to flatten the curve, restrict the post ride bacon intake

All but early morning rides are spolied some d'heads from the MTB brigade, zooming and zipping along the shared paths, many at dangerous speeds and clearly reckless behaviour. I do pity many of the walkers, so I have taken to riding early mornings.

I've struggled on the Giant flatbar road bike, gearing is just too high, struggled on many of the hills. Son-in-law returned my Giant MTB, triple chainrings make it much friendlier on hills.

Despite many, many rides since shutdown, still struggling with fitness, best I can do is around 20km, and then I'm knackered. Might be a while until I'm back to my best Around-the-Bay-in-a-Day condition.

Let me just say, 15 years makes a big difference, 15kg makes a bigger difference though.

My son is riding a bicycle home from work in the city to a East Hawthorn about 3, 3-30 am many days, I asked him this afternoon if he has problems with Mountain bikers. Apparently not.
