Silent One back to his roots.      I took the orientation classes at Hellyer quite a long time ago, and if I'd lived in the bay area, I'd probably would have been a track rider-racer.

One of my favorite little climbs--3.63k climbing dist, 1085 climbing ft, 18% max grade.    Here's a vid I made yesterday, looking at that ridge from a (hiked) summit peak at about north northwest.  
I'll probably go with the Vee Rubber Vee12, for dual purpose use. Here's the 2013 El Mariachi SS 29er, with the 38mm Vittoria Randonneur Hyper tire mounted for test rides. The Vittoria's are on the cyclocross commuter bike now.    Check out the slideshow--its pretty cool.

      Singlespeed for the quiet simplicity, and mostly flatland commuting. Will start out with 44x18 gearing, which will allow some *gnarly* climbing ability. With the 38mm tires I think that puts me around 20mph @ 100rpm.   My knees have all of a sudden been bothering so maybe it'll get gears later, along the lines of a cyclocross-style 1x9.   Probably will sell the Schwinn cheap, give it away, or donate it to the University bicycle lend/lease program.
