    I agree. I've been there, done that, got the T-shirt. I have a roof rack I almost never use, because I so much prefer just putting the bike in the back of the car, out of the weather and out of...

    If you look, you'll find a thread about what we all take with us on a typical ride. I recommend (as a minimum):

    Spare tube
    Tire irons
    Pump/CO2
    Tube Repair Kit (for that second flat)
    Multitool...

    Yea, Pixie is really coming around. She's tough, and turning into a strong climber. She managed 13,000+ feet on the Mulholland Challenge, and that takes some doing. She's also great company, and...

    I know many will disagree with me, but if your car is your baby and you don't want scuff marks on it, avoid trunk racks altogether. All of the different types have advantages and disadvantages.

    Hell, I've had my flip flops stolen on the beach (WTF ... who would want someone else's flip flops?), but I've never even heard of someone stealing a bike rack off of a car.

    Random thoughts:

    1. You can regularly find Conti GP4000s tires on PBK or similar for about $35 each or so.

    2. I've stopped buying them, though. Too many sidewall failures. The only bright...

    Yea, it is a looong climb. When we got to the top of Dawson's, most of us donned windbreakers for the ride down.

    I dunno where I read it, but supposedly, the climb from Encanto to Dawson Summit...

    If the difference between the tops and the drops of your handlebars is too much, there are other designs that minimize that.

    Yea, that's him!
