    Measure three times, cut once.

    It took me at least two builds to stop letting the fork drop out when I was installing headset spacers and stem.

    I'm sorry, I hate to be "that guy," but what's wrong with the current wheelset? Great spoke count for touring, great hubs, great rims... Seems fine.

    I carry a Macbook Air. I use the copious battery life on that (9 hours plus) to charge my lights and phone. I work from the laptop when I have an outlet, and use it as a battery when I'm more remote....

    Unscientific, no. Basic physics, yes. Larger cylinder = larger contact patch. 2.4" tires should have almost exactly half of the contact patch of 5" tires.

    Amazing pictures, by the way.

    I need to test a fatbike, because I suspect the difference between 2.5 inch tires and 4 inch tires is not going to be astoundingly great.

    I've heard a whisper of wolf howls up in Maine. Very interesting that the two breeds have intermixed as much as they have. I suppose I don't particularly want to meet a coyote, a wolf, or a feral...

    Turns out, these may be coyote tracks (thanks Doug64 and Google). I heard a wolf when I was pretty far up in Maine, but there have only been one or two sightings in the past few decades in...

  13. Winter Bikepacking. On my Shake-Out ride, a wolf went through my campsite!

    Particularly proud of this post. I had an awesome overnighter at the local reservoir and a wolf stepped past me in the night!

    When I tour, I completely ignore elevation and distance. I just stay on the bike for daylight hours. I usually get between 70 and 110 miles done per day, but it varies on the time of year due to...
