I'm a software engineer employed by a service company for the oil and natural gas industry. I develop mostly in Java and C++/CLI at work. Android development is an outside of work hobby. My non-tech related hobbies are road and mountain biking, triathlons, and wine making.

comment What are advantages and disadvantages of CO2 inflators over frame pumps?
Sorry, I don't have raw numbers. Several variables. For CO2 it would depend on how easy the CO2 adapter is to attach to the valve stem. It's just a matter of seconds to inflate the tire once the CO2 is released into the tire. The amount of time it takes to inflate a tire with a pump depends on the pump. Some pumps provide more air volume per stroke than others. Usually takes me a few minutes using a small portable pump to fill up my mountain bike tire.

comment What's your most useful cycle accessory?
There are several other brands of lights suitable for night riding. This particular brand is what I use and what several of my friends use. One thing that differentiates Light & Motion from other brands like Night Rider is that Light & Motion batteries are interchangeable. The battery from the Light & Motion I bought in 2005 work with the model I bought last year and vica versa. They purposefully maintain backwards compatibility with their adapters which is nice.

@neilfein: I updated the question with more info. Thanks for the suggestion. Also, in the future please provide a link to an FAQ on what questions are appropriate and what makes a good question. I couldn't find one after a quick search on the meta site. That will help other newbies understand your critique.

comment Does Enduro make a ceramic hybrid wheel bearing kit for WTB Laser Disc Lite hubs?
@neilfein: I need to replace the bearings in my front hub. I've heard that Enduro manufactures quality replacement bearings for hubs and bottom brackets which I why I'm interested it them specifically. Enduro doesn't mention anything specific to WTB Laser Disc Lite hubs on their site. Yes, I could contact the manufacture but then this information wouldn't be available to other people who have the same question. Isn't that the purpose of a stack exchange site: to be a Q&A database?

"Action wipes" are a good alternative to baby wipes.
