    Can you bring latex-free nitrile gloves to use when fixing flats? If the sealant is in your tire 99% of the time it shouldn't matter if you're allergic or not... right?

    Well, I'm thinking a tubeless rim is not so different from a regular rim. I can still run a clincher tire and a tube if something slashes my tubeless tire. There's added utility in tubeless rims, but...

    Thanks. Very much.

    1. I've given up on the rim brakes thing. My current touring bike has Mavic 719 rims with the braking surface, and disc hubs. The idea isn't that I'm going to build a brake from...

    C'mon guys, I've seen this question get answered ably fifteen times in the past year ;) I don't need/want the runaround of "Why don't you go ask a bike shop." If you have an endurance mountain bike,...

    No, no, that's not what I mean. I mean straight pull- the hubs have flanges that let you lace the spokes without a bend near the end.

    I'm not educated enough in wheels to know where to start. I'm hoping for real-world testing from the cauldron of Bike Forums.

    So far my best guess is lacing Shimano XT Hubs to Velocity Blunt 29er...

    New Bike Day! Help building a wheelset?

    Dearest Bike Nerds,

    Long story short, I came into a bike through honest means. It's a Surly Karate Monkey, full rigid. I have a good eye to swap many a component over in the coming months to get...

    Thanks again for your help and advice, seriously. Almost like fate, a 29" Surly Karate Monkey fell into my hands this evening, so I now get to re-read this thread over and over and figure out how I...

    This is why I'm thinking I want to go with an 80mm suspension fork. I want a lot of distance between my mtb and my current setup. Otherwise, it's just slight variations on the same theme.

    Converting to 1x10

    Hi Gravel-munchers,

    I wrote up a guide on 1x10 for cross, gravel-biking, endurance riding, touring... It's actually a way more fun drivetrain than I anticipated.

    Enjoy:

  12. I know tons about cycling. This has only made things worse.

    Hi Mountain Bikers,

    Creeping out of the touring forum to ask for some wisdom.

    I'm a cycling blogger and I do a lot of touring, so I'm used to being in the woods with a bike. It's time to buy a...

    Incredibly specific BB Spacing Issue

    I'm running a Praxis Works PF30 Converter BB with a Shimano Sora Hollowtech II crankset. I recently ditched my 34/46 rings for...

    I've crossed a few states connecting back roads with a compass. In the Northeast, it's easy. In the west like Colorado... you need to know where you're going so you don't end up on a highway. My...

    If I travel with others, I carry a light cable lock. When I travel alone, I carry the full-size Kryptonite. It's the one place where I forced myself to just stop thinking about weight.

    I can lock...

    No offense, but this game seems to try and boil bicycle touring down to calories and miles. In reality, it's "Am I hungry? Y/N." I hope everyone else isn't bike touring with a WeightWatchers app open...

    Nun, I completely agree. When I road tour I use a rack and two Ortlieb front rollers because the simplicity of taking bags with me is too much to pass up, and is worth the extra weight.

    I'm on a high-fat, high-protein diet to put weight back on my body... I've been riding so much, I lost a bit too much. Maybe when I get my fat layer back, I can carry less insulation... Ha!

    I think staehpj1 and bmike and I ought to tour together... we seem to have parallel thoughts on almost all aspects of adventuring.
