There once was a man from the stix,
Who liked to write limericks.
But he failed at the sport,
Because he wrote them too short.

comment Why ride a single-speed bike?
Edited to remove the suspension costs. They are significant, but it's true they have nothing to do with the choice of single speed in general.

Ha, more like 36/19, there's no chance of climbing the trails around here with 44/16. (yes, mountain bikes are bikes too...)

comment Fix / clean or throw away tire with 30+ thorn punctures?
Perhaps this is motivation to move to a tubeless setup... (all you'd do is add more sealant).

comment Why are single-speed bikes with disc brakes hard to find?
In addition to using an eccentric bottom bracket, you can build up a rear wheel with White Industries Eccentric ENO hub. And to go with that, they have a Disc Eccentric Mount - which can be used to adapt the rear brake to match the rear hub. I'm a happy user of the Eccentric ENO hub - it's easy to set up and use. I've not used the Disc Eccentric Mount - I use V-brakes in the rear.

I like it, though our new dryer didn't come with an insert (the old one had one).

comment What are good ways to dry shoes?
@Kibbee Shoe covers tend not to fit (size 48EU), and given the amount of water I encounter in the forest, I don't expect anything to keep me dry. But those covers look reasonable and affordable.

comment Toddler bike seat vs. bike trailer?
FWIW, I did flip the trailer with my daughter in it - trailer landed on its side. She just woke up and was suspended in the 5 point harness, kind of curious as to why the world was sideways.
