    The unpaved section to Bodie is about three miles of washboard. Wouldn't be the greatest place to have fun....

    I've also ridden that section, doing so around 7:30 on a Saturday morning. It didn't seem any worse to me than other routes I've taken. Truck traffic from the farms was moderate at that hour.

    I picked up a 2014 CR-V this summer. Dang...didn't even think about trying to stand up the bike like that when my wife and I took a road trip. I simply pulled the wheels off and laid them down in the...

    I picked up the Performance rack a few months ago on sale, just before I got my CR-V. It looks pretty good to me.

    I haven't put the hitch on the car yet. I want to stay with the 1-1/4" Class 1...

    I've got a Honda CR-V. We took a road trip north to Lake Tahoe this summer, just the wife and I. With the back seats down, we put in two bikes (wheels off), plus luggage and toys and still had some...

    Forty two miles on our local shop ride, 3500' of climbing on Saturday. Then five miles of hiking with my wife on local trails. Awesome weekend.

    At one time, I tried the Glider and never got it to work. Sold it off after just a few weeks of riding it. I was surprised when I was able to set up the 209 okay.

    None of our local shops have...

    That 209 does have a lot of padding but you don't really notice it. It's not like I sink into the thing. The difference to the Drakon is that its effective width ends up being a touch wider and the...

    Moving from SMP Lite 209 to Drakon

    I've had the 209 for a few years. It's an okay saddle but I still get a few tinges on it. It's very livable but not quite right. I'm considering the Drakon. Has anyone done the same move? I'm 5'9...

    I read a review that sounded like the differences between the 4000 and the 4000 II are insignificant and mostly a marketing thing.

    Desert Bicycle Club

    They have rides that leave from College of the Desert. Note: you need to go early and carry plenty of water. When I have ridden there in the summer, I'm usually back by 9 a.m.
