    Ask your girlfriend to buy you a tool bag/case from Home Depot and buy the tools yourself later at your own leisure. Get the largest one they sell. You'll need the space.

    Update: I found a 30 year old Campagnolo derailleur in the parts bin and installed it on the bike. The original bike was a 12 speed. The uncontoured plates mean I have to reverse the throw slightly...

    I carry a medium weight chain lock. If my bike is stole during a tour, I'm screwed. I'm happy to carry the extra 2kg.

    In what way is that thing better than a tent? No, I'd never use it. It's heavy as hell and impossible to haul in the wind.

    For your situation, I'd buy a trailer and ride the CAAD10. If you have or anticipate children in your future, get a child trailer. Otherwise get a Bob trailer. Either way you'll end up with a useful...

    In all the years I've been bicycle touring, I've only done two centuries while on tour. This is not because I don't want to do long days. If I arrive at the end of the day having done more mileage...

    Your game is awesome. Since you deleted the link in your post I had to go to your site to find it. I've definitely gone more than three days without a shower on tour. I do a towel wipe every night....

    Definitely. I take one on solo tours. BBC cancelled broadcasting to Asia years ago though so these days I'm limited to mostly Chinese language programming. Oddly back when I lived in Toronto I could...

    I can't use 36 or 22t chainrings. I use a road triple crank and the chainrings I have are the smallest I can fit.

    Front derailleur failures are indeed rare. I'm not sure why I've had two fail in...

    A porn VCD on some random road in rural China. These weren't widespread in North America but had replaced VHS in the rest of the world from the mid 90s until the introduction of DVDs. Since each CD...
  13. Triple Front Derailleur Top-Middle Minimum Capacity

    I ride a touring bike with 48-38-24 chainrings. I've been using the Shimano Sora FD-3304 for years. To the best of my knowledge this is one of the few triple front derailleurs designed with a 10...

    You might also consider stepping around the issue entirely by switching to direct pull v-brakes. They also stop much better than cantilevers (i.e. less effort from hand, harder braking). This means...

    What you heard is correct. I got rid of this problem on my old cross bike by moving to a fork crown mounted cable hanger.

    I agree with Higgins that it sounds like a broken derailleur spring.

    I'm sorry: no, no, and no. Three strikes.

    1. a) You obviously have a different understanding of the meaning of "to quote" as compared to the rest of us; and b) the ultimate issue isn't the...

    Watch the video again. You really think so? At the time of impact the car is barely a third of the way across. The bike impacts the front of the car. The car would not have had time to clear the...

    There is a video in the article linked. Here is a screenshot from the video. It is not very high resolution but I'm sorry, the road is straight as an airport runway and there are no obstructions. If...

    A) You are quoting me out of context. The phrase which you quoted isn't even a full sentence in my original post. It is an independent clause, the second half of a longer sentence which was...
  22. 10 speed mountain cassette with non-11t high gear possible?

    I use a 11-34 cassette on my touring bike. I find that I use the 11t and 13t cogs in my cassette a handful of time per year, at best. I've looked at the 10 speed mountain cassettes on the market and...

    You're using a strawman attack to accuse me of using a strawman attack? Never seen that before. Well done.

    My opinion is supported by three paragraphs of carefully worded explainations. Your post...

    Shimano freehubs are known for being quiet. You'll need to take the wheel apart and lace the rim to the new hub with new spokes. Might as well buy a new wheel and keep the old one as a backup.

    Based on how often I have to change my pads: the front by a long shot. I hardly ever use my rear brakes.
