    I measured the distance and it is 285mm between the attachment points. I should send Soma message and tell them to make it like 250mm which would be plenty adequate. Oh well. I don't use the pump...

    Velocity Dyads are good heavy duty touring rims. For a sturdy low cost rim I like Sun CR 18s which run about $25 +/-. Dyads are priced about twice that amount. Can't go wrong with either rim if...

    My wheels are 700c. My rims are Velocity dyad which are fairly deep so my spokes are shorter. In any event, I don't know why the two attachment points are positioned so far apart.

    If I were you I would get a detailed road atlas for Ohio (Gazeteer). I would use the google route as the base route and plot it out on the atlas sheets. You can then vary it you see fit along the...

    I hope Jim H. can get the Wolverines back to where they should be. I have always loved the rivalry between OSU and Michigan. Growing up it was Woody vs. Bo- the ten year war, etc. Michigan is too...

    Ohio State is the undisputed national champion! There is nothing mythical about it. OSU was sloppy with the ball but out-muscled the Ducks. Couldn’t be more proud of the Buckeyes- they are “team”...

    Ohio State's loss to Urban Meyer's Florida team in 2007 BCS championship was indeed an embarrassment. Ohio State read their headlines and got fat in the 50 days between the BCS game and its last...

    I rode my six mile one way commute every day this week. In central Ohio, Thursday morning was the coldest at -8 degrees F with -20 wind chill. I was absolutely fine both ways. I do worry about...

    Even with long days on multi day touring journeys where comfort is important, I still enjoy the athletic component of the ride. I have used toe cages and straps but I prefer clipless because of...

    I have a shimano 3n-72 dynamo hub on my touring bike. To be honest, it is pretty non essential for my needs while touring. I have it so I look for ways to use it such as occasional usb battery pack...

    Toward the end of the day, I find a convenience store and purchase a 16oz can of beer to take to camp. Usually stays cold until I set up and then I drink it and mull over the days adventure. ...

    I am not ready to say that choumichou is a troll, but if he is, he is really good! He pushes all the buttons but still ambiguous as to motivation.

    If you end up cutting the fender, Dremel tools work great. Makes nice, clean cut and little chance the fender will crack because of the high speed.

    You're right. I originally ordered the 54cm frame but determined it was a little too small. So I had to pay to ship it back. I wanted the fit to be as good as you could get on a production frame...

    That's funny. The explanation is that it is my winter hose to spray road gunk off my drive train to inhibit corrosion, etc. It is a short section so if it freezes I don't ruin a whole garden hose.
