    Bike tire

    These tires are virtually puncture proof and are cheap but they ride like ****. If you don' t care about ride quality, they're worth considering: http://www.biketiresdirect.com/product/vittoria-randonneur-tire

    Bike tire

    I recently patched two tires with Gorilla superglue and nothing more. Works like a charm! Their brand of superglue has rubber particles in it and is flexible and not brittle.

    Suspenders and Bow Ties

    Yeah, I'd say that suspenders & bowties are more acceptable for lawyers than businessmen. BTW, what does "MHS" stand for? P.S. - cool avatar! That's the Ride - Nowhere album cover, right?

    No Shave November. Who is ready?

    I have a custom of shaving my head down to a 1 & shaving my face along with it about every 2 weeks. I like the regular process of going from clean shaven to bearded.

    Do you think the Beatles are overrated?

    Personally, I'll take The Who over The Beatles or The Stones any day. The Beatles have some good tunes, no doubt & they were an important part of rock history, but I don't find most of their stuff to move me that much. Actually I like The Kinks more than The Beatles as well when it comes to...

    How'd you meet your significant other?

    Glad to hear that OKC has worked out for you! I've been on there for a quite a while & I've been on quite a few dates, but so far nothing has gone beyond a second date. I have 2 friends that both met girls that they've been seeing for over a year in both cases, so I know that it works out well...

    Guitar Players

    If you want to do it on the cheap, I use a cable that plugs into your USB port like this: http://accessories.musiciansfriend.com/product/SoundTech-LightSnake-GuitarKeyboard-USB-10ft-Cable?sku=332600&src=3WFRWXX&ZYXSEM=0&CAWELAID=26022915 It works just fine for my needs.

    Coffee recommendations anyone... ?

    Yeah, I'm not sure about whether or not the burning thing is true of blade grinders, but the inconsistent grind is certainly true. I also like that my burr grinder can be set to dispense the same amount every time. My preferred set up with a conical burr grinder, an adjustable temperature...

    Coffee recommendations anyone... ?

    siata94 - I finally got to Sightglass the other day. Great cup & venue. I want to try to sell them some of my furniture. ;) Another good cheap method is the Swiss Gold single cup filter. Although it costs a little more than a generic cone, there is no need to buy filters. I was using that...

    Coffee recommendations anyone... ?

    OP: where do you live? There are several awesome roasters here in SF, & there should be something that's at least decent in most cities. As for brewing, I use the Aeropress & I like the cup that it produces more than any other brewing equipment/method that I've used. If you get a burr...

    Staggeringly dumb comments your GF/WIFE/other females have said to you...

    1. "So where do I put that?" 2. "Logic? I don't get it?" 3. "Does this gut make me look fat?"
