This would probably be easier if you posted pics of said wife.

Rain jackets

Yes. I don't find the Precip membrane to be durable in high wear areas (I've had two of them replaced under warranty due to delamination) but, for the price, it is a pretty good rain jacket.

Yeah I've read some mediocre reviews but $105 CDN taxes in shipped to my door from a Canadian retailer for a jacket with sleeves that might be long enough is too cheap for the Scotsman in me to pass up. Thanks for the reviews.

Anybody have a Marmot Precip jacket?

Looking for something cheap that comes in tall sizes.

Sound Bars

I dont like them because of the inherent limitations. Would look into decent active stereo monitor/bookshelf speakers for better sound quality and flexibility/simplicity. Or if you can afford and have the space for it, a real 5.0 or 5.1 or even a 3.0 or 3.1 system would be better imho.

edit: Some of the above posts beat me to it.

Unsure how [HTML_REMOVED]1 speaker offers more simplicity. But I will give you better sound quality.

Thinking of purchasing one. Tired of listening through the TV speakers.

Would be ideal to connect the phone/MBP wirelessly to listen to music. External subwoofer would be ideal as well.

Anyone using one? Recommendations? Ones to stay away from? Places to purchase from?

I've got a vizio one. Nothing fancy but paired with my 10" sub it sounds pretty good.

Not sure about vizio as a brand. Mine recently started having problems with auto shutdown due to overheating. Not sure if it's actually overheating or just a sensor problem. Maybe some dried out thermal paste or some caps starting to let go.

Check out woot.com they usually have them cheap as they are amazons clearing house.

Anyone know what the differences between the Raceface chute and agent jackets are? I see that the chute is 3 layer vs 2.5 for the agent?

lots of people like to ride their saddle low and lots of people don't have their seat up high enough when pedaling. I'm 5'9 and use 170mm of post.

Wouldn't the "amount of post" your using not be directly related to size of bike (stand over)?

I find that the seat angle on my bike precludes me from getting optimum height as the seat angle is a bit to slack…. Why don't bike companies alter seat angle with size of bike? It's obvious that an XL frame needs a steeper seat tube angle as chances are somebody tall is going to be running a long post.

Linoleum

If it's real old, think about if it has asbestos in it.

This!

How f'ing tall are you?

Just under 6'7" here and a 150mm Lev seems to do me fine. Am I missing out?

Shimano M615 Brakes - stroke adjust?

dremel a flat bladed screwdriver so it looks like a two pronged fork and screw out the bolt.
then put your own bolt in.

Or just use some circlip pliers and skip the dremel.

Did this to my zees a few years ago. Not really worth the effort.

Cool job.

Enjoyed the work as an avionics mechanic more in my previous life. Enjoy the pay and job security now more.
