    I looked at various shipping options to get a bike from Canada to Portland earlier this year, and as soon as you shipped across the boarder, the cost rose to the stratosphere -- I ended up taking the...

    Small cut, superglue it.

    Large cut, get new tire.

    Quarter inch probably fits into the large cut category.

    Very awesome. I'm saving this for my friend who had one lung removed last year. She's recovering, but it's slow.

    From what I've read, Divide route seems pretty hard core riding, with single track as well as unpaved roads. Personally I would worry more about whether the pannier will bounce off the bike on the...

    Things get expensive for the friend that way, because she has to pay the single room supplement at each hotel.

    Yes. It does sound sexist. Especially the oink oink bit.

    (But having said that, yes, a good relationship is 50-50.)

    Merrell has some really lightweight trail shoes. They are comfortable for hikes and for mooching around off the bike.

    I went on a month long tour this summer, and the spouse stayed home. He doesn't have the vacation, and he wouldn't have wanted to spend that long on a bike anyway. And I admit it's nice to have...

    I strap my helmet to my carry-on, a small backpack, and nobody bats an eyelid. Only issue is having to be extra careful not to thunk people in the head when I swing the backpack round to put it on.

    Otago Rail Trail, New Zealand. Pitch black in the middle of the tunnel, and a bumpy surface. I started out riding it, but quickly lost all sense of direction, so pushed the rest of the way.

    I had an issue mid afternoon, but it had gone away by the time I tried again this evening. I blame Garmin. Always blame someone who won't speak up for themselves.
