Thanks for the info and tips guys. I've been eyeing the Nashbar parabolic rollers because they fold and also have the built in protection, even more so than the TACX Conicals it seems.
Going to snap one up when they go on sale again.
Call me a blasphemer, but I've been really enjoying the sweet chili flavored Duane Reade brand kettle chips. I can't recall if they're the Delish or NICE! brand, but they're very thick cut and incredibly crunchy.
My thoughts exactly. Some newer places I could easily hear people upstairs or through walls. When I was in FiDi in a converted commercial building, everything was dead silent and perfect, of course other than actually living in FiDi.
