    And when it's not election season, I've found correx/coroplast at sign making shops. They usually have correx scraps for cheap-to-free.

    Lookin' good! Didn't realize that the Retro Rides came in brown, all I've ever seen are the cream colored ones. I've gotten good life out of Rubena Cityhoppers, and they also come in brown and cream....

    I think the consensus, as far as I know, is the Panaracer Col De La Vies are the best gum/skin/tan wall tire available in the 590 size. I currently have them on my Raleigh Wayfarer, so I speak from...

    I'm not going to disparage BA too much, as it looks like their tents and sleeping bags are good, esp. if you are on the tall side. But I'm wondering how "rare" the faulty inside coating actually is....

    Yeah, my Big Agnes was comfortable, but after a tour where I had to replace the pad at least three times (thank you, liberal REI return policy) because not only was the pad leaking, but I could never...

    Looking at Google Maps, it would be about 1,100 miles if you took the most direct way, through the Great Basin desert of Oregon and Nevada. Most people would use the coastal route, which puts it near...

    I've used a Static V this last year and like it. It's one of the few pads that (as a side sleeper) I find comfortable. Haven't had any issues with leaks or durability (unlike a Big Agnes pad I had a...

    I've brought along a pocket SW radio a couple times on bike camping trips. The usefulness of shortwave in the US is pretty limited, as you can't pick up BBC or even CBC anymore. I got Radio Havana...

    Nice one! I know what you mean about the 23" frame. I had a '53 Rudge that I just sold. Loved the bike, but it was just too small for me at 21".

    You don't have to worry about that in Portland. The chairs are standard theatre chairs, they only do beer/wine/cider, and they definitely don't deliver to your seat!

    I've been to both Ninkasi and Oakshire, and they are nice places with good beer. I've had Hop Valley and like that as well, but if it ain't obvious by their name, they really like IPAs. ;)
