Is My Bike Worth Upgrading?

You’ve had a bike for awhile and you’ve decided the bike has some limitations. You want to upgrade it because you like it otherwise. “Is it worth upgrading?” you ask.

May Is National Bike to Work Month!

Sorry for the long interval between posts, readers. Grad school is hitting me hot & heavy. My thesis proposal got accepted (after half my data was collected already) and now it’s time to move on. Lots of computer work has been done this semester, and this summer will bring lots of processing and number crunching in order to meet a hopeful Fall 2011 graduation deadline.
