7/29    I have a 70's road bike I ride to work.  A few months back I replaced
        the rear wheel and tire, then I put a set of old 70's rear baskets
        on it.  The baskets are great in general, with them I don't have to
        wear a backpack and I can carry a lot more.  However, they are heavy.
        Since I put them on 2 months ago I've had 3 flat tires in back,
        compared to 1 in the year previous.  I think the extra weight is wearing

4/6     Alameda sales tax is now 9.75%. that's pretty rough. sales
        tax is regressive.  Some boneheaded Oakland city council member
        wants to raise Oakland sales tax even more, in this
        recession. - motd liberal
        \_ Yes, the sales tax, car tax, and income tax increases enacted by the
           state legislature are the largest in history, and massively

        http://finance.yahoo.com/expert/article/economist/86938
        "High Fuel Costs Could Spur a New Rationalism"
        \_ I sure hope this is going mainstream.  But most drives I see on the
           roads are still solo drivers, the freeways are not getting less
           congested, and my wife doesn't see BART trains getting more crowded.

12/17   I ride a Kawasaki EX500 for recreation and now I'm looking for
        a real commute bike. I'm getting married and will be moving 30
        miles away from work, and I'm looking for something that is
        1) COMFORTABLE 2) light weight (I'm only 140 pounds, so that
        rules out Goldwings and heavy Harleys) 3) very quiet and
        smooth even at 80MPH. What are some bikes that fit in this criteria?
