    My self inflating pad inflates itself in a timely manner. I don't know exactly how long, but not more than 10 minutes. I'm never sleeping 10 minutes after setting up my tent anyway, which is when I...

    I haven't tried a ton of mats, but from the couple of each variety that I have tried, I think self inflating feel a little different than the plain air mats(which makes sense due to their...

    I wouldn't worry about hardcore thieves in a camp site, so even a small, lighter weight lock should do fine. When I did the coast, I brought my Kryptonite chain lock. It weighs a few pounds, but a...

    I think that front rack might be the Salsa Down Under rack.

    I don't like the head-tube in relation to the fork on that bike. They're such different widths that it loses the lines and ends up being...

    I vote no therapy needed. My line of thinking is that my road bike weighs under 20lbs already, and I only ride it <50mi on a good day. It doesn't need to be a new super-ultra light carbon something...

    I'm a fan of front panniers only in a 2 pannier situation. As mentioned, the bike handles better in general. I think it feels more confident when turning. The load doesn't push the bike around when...

    It just depends on your preferences and what you want out of it. There are slightly different geometries, different materials, different level components, etc. Research every bike that you're...

    ^ Weird. I've spend tons of time in C&V and haven't experienced that. There is the oddball post of that sort here and there, I guess, but it's pretty rare that I see one.

    That is a beautiful bike...

    I didn't quite make it through all of the comments, so maybe someone said this, but my recommendation would be to camp rather than hotel. That should save you several hundred dollars, affording you a...

    ^ Holy crap! Thanks for the info! I just picked up a spare pair to use on my next tour. And yeah, that's definitely below normal cost. They "retail" for $60+, but can usually be found for around $40....

    I recommend trying out a Vittoria Hyper if you run 700x32+ and haven't tried them yet. It might change your mind about that Gatorskin. They're comparable tires, but I think the Vittoria rides a...

    Has anyone run a brake at the top of a trekking bar in order to have a brake within reach while in the aero position? If so, how did you feel about it? Good control? Not having a brake right near my...

    The amount of stuff does seem to be a factor for sure. It was worst on the side that my sleeping bag was in. The bag completely filled that pannier. The other side, which tended to have an extra roll...

    +1 Front end washouts are No fun. I've also heard that broken collar bones are a common result of washouts. I say at least make sure you have some side knobbies in the front to help avoid that. Equal...

    I don't know if I get more or less room, as I always use a blinky, but I do get plenty of room using it. I can say that while on tour, if riding at night, I notice that during the day some cars will...

    They look pretty nice, and I bet they are, but 5lbs? Yeesh. Even the smaller 35l are over 4lbs. My 35l are a little under 3lbs and I'm thinking of finding something lighter. I'm not looking to carry...
