I'm new to touring - and especially to planning - and just discovered the Grand Illinois Trail (GIT). I'm familiar with the Madison County Trails in southern IL, etc., and I was wondering if anyone...

I was thinking maybe that was happening too for a while because it's parked in a back room of our building and the landlord was having all these guys working on the first floor. I thought maybe one...

I second (or third) the wool socks. From what I know, wool socks are the only material that can keep you warm even if they are wet.

I'm married, no kids, but my husband and I live the "starving artist" lifestyle. We've gotten pretty good at scouting Craigslist and ebay, and making use of a local bike coop to get the outdoor stuff...

I live in St. Louis, MO, a reasonably sized city sitting next to lots of urban cities in St. Louis County, where you can get to just about anywhere on a bike. We even have lots of "Bike St. Louis"...

I hear you. I've been waiting for one of these dogs that are on *surprise* long leashes to take me out. I always go out of my way around them because I couldn't image how horrible it would be to...

I think I misrepresented my soreness (or rather didn't explain it!). I get sore on the level of can't walk for a day or three. Which probably sets me back more since it puts me out of commission. I...

Yes, the craigslist listing is the bike I bought (so he needs to take his ad down). And the other link was one of the only things I found searching for it. It's a mystery, I was hoping you know I'd...

Who knows anything about this bike?

Earlier this month I picked up a bike off of craigslist. It was a Takara Medalist and the guy claimed he bought it brand new in the later 90s. I didn't believe him, of course, but it was a nice bike...
