You've clearly never seen a pair of Ergon pedals (https://www.rei.com/product/830494/ergon-pc2-pedals). They're wide, grippy and extremely supportive; they're great pedals-if you close your eyes. I...

I think the answer you're looking for is front racks are niche items, made by a small number of companies, most catering to the high end market.

I use longboards (and actually have a Mazda 3 hatch...) and use an older version of the Raptor, and they all play very well together. Just lift up the bike, strap down the wheels, and clamp the down...

Location and conditions really make a huge difference in the amount of gear I'd take with me for a 'just in case' scenario. In general, I try to keep enough gear to survive a night out, even if it...

You don't really give a temperature range, but in my experience a four season tent is rated for winter use because it's better equipped to deal with high winds and snow load, not because it's warmer....

I think this thread is very telling-they're great tires, for some purposes. They're light, cheap and roll really well, but the appearance is questionable, and they are not as durable as other tires....

The Ergon pedals feel really nice, but are powerfully ugly. Grippy like a skateboard deck, not like a meat tenderizer, so less danger of harm to ones shin. Plus, built in reflectors. I have a pair on...

I have a tendency to use a Condor MA64 as a handlebar bag. It's just big enough for my wallet, cell phone, keys, light jacket and a snack or two. Hooks easily to my bars, secure, and unhooks just as...

Arc'teryx gets way more credit than they deserve. They make nice products (I really like their A2B pants), but they tend to expensive, even when compared to competitors. And you have to support...

In all my years of using them, I've broken one. I was using it to hammer in a tent peg. Don't do that and you'll probably be fine.

A tarp and bug net can provide a lot of flexibility at a reasonable cost, and a very light weight. I've been using the Sea to Summit Escapist series (mainly backpacking, but a little 'bikepacking')....

I'm sure part of it is style, but I think there is a legitimate weight savings to be had, if that's the sort of thing you're in to. That seat bag weighs just about a pound, holds 16.5 liters. A Tubus...

From what I can gather, Ursacks are often allowed places where canisters are required, but there is no explicit rule against Ursacks. I've never had a problem when I've asked, but I've often had to...

I have one, and love it. Not only is it a fraction of the weight of a bear bag, but it's volume also reduces as you eat your food.

I'm also pretty well convinced no-one ever actually hangs a bear...

I wouldn't let the ability to open the vent from inside of the tent be a major selling point, In all but the worst conditions the vent should be open.

10,000 mm should be plenty for a rain jacket, it's enough for a motorcycle jacket meant to resist wind driven rain at 60 MPH. Although if you're getting soaked watching a football game, something is...
