Nice post! My only observation is dried beans weigh a lot less than canned and thermal cooking (insulation around the pot) makes them easy to deal with. Please excuse my tangent.

I did that on some steel handlebars to fit bar end shifters. I used a round file but it took > an hour.

Nah, they're overbuilt for containing greens. The lid problem is solved by stacking.

If you always use new tubes you probably are not getting location data you need. First you need to know if the leak is on the inner or outer part of the tube to know what to look for. Then you see...

Very well done! Both the dog accommodation and the video. A friend of mine is touring with his dog on a Yuba Mundo. His FB page is "Wheres Bixby" which he posts as the dog. Currently in SoCal.

The crank puller is fun to use but beware. I am probably not the only amateur mechanic that forgot to get the crank bolt washer out of there causing the puller to strip out the threads.

I agree with what has been said above. It will be a piece of metal or glass or sharp gravel in the pad. It happens more to me when riding in wet conditions. But assuming you find it and dig it out of...

I don't think you'll find an adjustable stem for 1 1/4 steerer. That's what I have on my Santana Tandem and the best I could do was buy a high rise stem from Yellow Jersey in Madison WI.

This will sound like a joke but how about "Drogue Chute". In the tandem world they have an expensive gadget called a "drag brake". I don't live in steep country but I have thought about having my...

I run my shift cables all the way under the tape. I do use a bar bag and don't like the way "flying whiskers" style interferes. It adds a small amount of friction to the shifting, but you can...

Thank you for the follow up. It is encouraging that they (you?) are still riding after this horrific experience. I am also curious about civil liability in this case. I assume there was a policy...

I have the 3 degree rise that came stock on my '98 Arriva but it's not quite what you're asking for. I think it's 10 cm. I replaced that with an 8 cm high rise which I got from Yellow Jersey so I...

Better, you don't have to keep up with and fuss with another piece of gear. If have on long pants, it's there on my ankle waiting. And I don't need bash guards on all my bikes.
