|you are going to need a chain guard. You are going to ruin a lot of jeans by getting the leg caught between the chain and that small chainring.

|How 'bout riding with me on the Katy Flatlands century? Any ride that has a buzzard for the logo has to be done!

2. Good luck finding a Kryptonite lock....
