    Re: Getting started in 11x14"

    Big Easy by Surley. Made in Minnasota, I believe.

    Took a 45 mile ride today...no camera, just a round-about way to get to a meeting in another town -- normally 8 miles of flat riding, today started with a 1600 foot climb) and a couple more not so high ones later on. Very pretty. Got home with ten miles or so of power. A distance test with major climbing...my legs are toast!

    Bike did great -- up to 36mph coming downhill, but on a lane and a half of poorly paved winding road, sunlight dappled, 20 or 25mph felt saver! handles great.

    From a previous single-track test of the bike (w/ 5x7) -- did great...an SOB to get up 4 feet over a fallen tree, though (and a photo from that trip...pt/pd print):

    yeah - two batteries. I can make three trips into town without worrying about recharging (15 to 25 miles trip). Winter is coming, I have fenders to put on and got some winter gloves -- wore them this morning to start off...mid 30's when I woke up, mid 40's by the time I hit the road.

    Some places south of the 49th don't get much ice in the winter (and the mileage is for round trips) . There is a small grocery store just two miles away...but banks and all that are further. I'll ride into Arcata today 8 miles) to work at the gallery. Down to 34F this morning, 40F now and might warm up 3 to 5 degrees before I need to leave,
