    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    I would pick up a tubolito as a backup tube and run tubeless. So much lighter to carry around.

    Has anyone recently built a bike ordering frame etc from china? I just need a regular ol commuter getting to and from work and between the exorbinant price people are asking for used bikes and the limited stock shops seem to have... its a fruitless search.

    I dont need carbon fiber lightweight shit, id just prefer something with skinny tires that doesnt weigh 30 lb like my old mountain bike

    Go to the Bike Root at the UofC as they have a selection of used bikes that's built by either @D'z Nutz or @taemo !

    Not sure what you're trying to accomplish with ordering a bike from China, but saving money wouldn't be one of them. If you want an affordable commuter, also see what twowheelview has to offer.

    I like it. The price is a bit steep.

    I think I can deal with the bulk and the weight of a regular tube that is 10x less the cost. In fact, I'd rather walk out. lol.

    I think you know exactly what I'm trying to accomplish. It just appears you have a better solution! Thanks for the link

    Have a nashbar cyclocross frame (L - 56), Aluminum with carbon fork. Can be set up for rim, or disc. Was my commuter for a few seasons...
    Fire me a PM if interested.
