Electric Bus

I just had the amazing pleasure of drafting an electric bus here in Spokane. The city's running a trial on zero-emissions transportation (and since almost all our electric comes from The Dam, it's...

+1. It's even worse with snow, which I genuinely favor riding in (it's quieter and comfier to me), but cars go painfully slow :rolleyes:

and I'm not sure if my trailer can hold it. Has anyone had luck transporting a weighty object like this in a converted kiddie-cart? I have one that's likely sturdy enough but a fridge won't fit on it...

Well, I got my first peek at it yesterday. The weather was real shoddy so no test spins yet, but she is beautiful! I'll post some pics when I bring it home next week :D

OK guys, I'm not buying a bike with disc brakes. I mentioned the Disc Trucker to be polite. Indexed downtubes are high tech to me, let alone bar-ends. I'm happy with good o'l canti's; my lame...

Oy. The newest trek I've ridden is 4 years older than I am; is trek no good these days? I don't really step out of the vintage realm ever.

Ok guys, thanks a lot-I was pretty set on the new one, but it wasn't made in America and there's no Reynold's sticker so I just wanted to make sure I wasn't going all in on a "cheap" frame.

Trek 520, Old vs New

Hey folks,
I'm planning on setting up a touring rig in the next few months. I'm a vintage Trek guy, and I've only ever owned Treks; naturally the 2014 520 got my attention (it is beautiful!).

I don't think 3 times a year would be frequent or annoying. Of course there's a balance, but if someone's not taking their driving privileges seriously I don't see why we shouldn't call them in.

Are Dynamo Hubs Worth It?

I'm putting together a touring build for my first long tour (~2000mi). It will be primarily "stealth camping" and I'm concerned about plug availability for charging for my phone and gps. On the other...
