Default My "Slick" City Touring/Commuter

Well, I have only put 50 miles on it before I had a piston meltdown, but I’ve ordered a new cylinder, piston, and rings. I guess I need to break it in at 15mph instead of 20. Anyway, I used to ride brevets (best time was 600k / 372 miles in 32 hours and 23 minutes – no motor), so I moved my GPS mount as well as my lighting kit to my old beater. I put slicks on it since I love to ride slicks (used to 700c). Once I get my proper break-in completed with my new cylinder and piston, I am anxious to see how fast she’ll go.

My plan is to ride to work, saving me about $3.50 every day (w/ gas at $2.15 per gallon). That's almost $75 per month or close to $900 per year!!!
