Yeah, I have actually been surprised that morning lows have been in the high 70's. It's humid enough that you still sweat like crazy, but cool enough you don't mind as much.

Yeah, I think you're over thinking the "single use" statement. Consider it as good for the life of the chain itself. Don't recycle them on 20 different chains over the years. Chains that use a quick...

The belt drive is an attractive idea, and I had a friend do the Tour Divide on a Rohloff hub, but it's 1) expensive and 2) the hub alone weighs as much as an ENTIRE 1X groupset including brakes,...

It's really a preference thing. Half of the people on the rides I've done are on MTB's. Most of the fast guys on the Tour Divide are all on flat bars. You generally see more drop bars for the...

I had a Cannondale hardtail for a short while with Ergon grips with integrated bar ends (Still have those in a box). I did probably 50/50 trail/pavement with it and it was fine. I could convert it to...

I've generally been a "one tube+CO2 in the jersey pocket" guy for a long while, but now I'm doing rides at 5 a.m. while my wife is at home with a 4 year old and a 5 month old. I can not afford to...

I have the Dual on my two main bikes. Each one is pretty stuffed with two tubes, two CO2 cartridges, 1 inflator, two tire levers, and a patch kit thrown in a ziploc. Mini pump goes in the jersey...

I've generally liked the feel of the Shimano MTB brakes vs. SRAM Avid MTB brakes, but that tells you how long it's been since I've worked day to day in a shop. I would prefer a Shimano 1X build...
