The Prius is a very impressive car. Beyond the MPG, its utility is amazing. If it can swallow a bicycle with both wheels attached, I'm sold. Otherwise, I'd look at a diesel Golf or Jetta wagon.

If you have Shimano or SRAM, maybe you should try a 12-27 or 12-28. Just check to see if your rear derailleur can support larger gears. If you have Campagnolo, they do have a 12-29 cassette.

IMO, cranks should be selected according to the length of your legs, and really nothing else. If you have short legs, 180mm cranks won't work well.

2nd the bike fit. Have a pro shop do a custom fitting for you before you do anything more. Nothing will work properly unless the bike is adjusted for your body. After that, just keep climbing. Don't...

I'd take everyone's suggested prices and lop off a third, maybe half. The secondary bike market is very soft these days.

Anyone wonder how far down in power Japan will be if these reactors continue to be off-line?

And meanwhile, their stock market lost 12% today (tomorrow).

I ride Continental 4000s. Michelin Pros have never had a good wear rate for me, as I find I'm changing them every 2K or so. I don't think they have as much stick as the Continentals, either.

Don't know what the death count will be, but I fear it would be much higher if a quake like that hit L.A. or San Francisco.

It was announced during the Vegas race, so I'm sure fans already know about it.

I think Spanish is a required language learned in some LA Unified schools. Chinese might not be a bad idea, either.

No, you didn't kill it. Karting has always interested me. How much does something like what you posted cost? And what's the maintenance costs for engines, tires, gas, etc? Does it use race fuel?

Diesel. Look for a used newer Mercedes. They're out there and fairly inexpensive. Though you'll have better luck with a crossover than a car, FWIK.

Funny...these days, I consider Toyota, Subaru, Honda, Mercedes Benz and BMW to be American cars. Just as much as Ford, GM and Chrysler.

I would fine them if I were he. It's Bahrain's govt's fault all this happened, and in turn, killed the race.
