Hello,

I'm primarily a web app developer (LAMP) living in the UK, but I'm interested in lots of other technologies, most of which are open source.

Currently I'm tinkering with my Arduino when I'm not doing PHP for $. I'm actively learning C and am interested in new languages and stuff.

comment Best 9 speed cassette for fast & flat
Also it could well have been 12/27 and just me counting them incorrectly! I seem to remember double counting the smallest cog a few times but I wasn't so careful with the big one.

comment Best 9 speed cassette for fast & flat
There are definitely 9 cogs on my cassette - and SRAM is stamped on the lock ring. I didn't get a chance to count the teeth on my chain ring unfortunately. I am right in assuming 9 cogs on cassette = 9 speed right? I'm still new to a lot of this stuff.

It's a compact double. Not sure on the count..I'll have a look after work and report back :)

Note: Fast-ish that is. I probably average 18mph on my commute. I suppose the slowest top end of the cassette I'd like would be about 25mph.

comment Are there road bike tires invulnerable to popping?
Could be cheap tubes, badly installed tubes, deformed tyres, busted rims etc.. time spent inspecting should help.

This exact thing happened to me.. thought I had rubbish tyres or something! I very, very rarely get flats now I inflate to 120psi.
