    If your was two 50 mile rides, I'd say no problem. 90 miles in one day is a lot for anyone. It perfectly doable but if condition are not right, you won't enjoy it. Wind can slow you down tremendously...

    Do you have one?

    Yes, Shimano.

    Are the hubs essy to steal?

    Like any other wheel.

    Do lights stay bright for the life of the hub?

    About 70km on a 32 spoke wheel. That wheel was crap and spokes broke regularly. The funny thing is after I re-trued my wheel with more theory than experience, I came across a couple with wheel...

    I use Marathon Supremes. I've had a couple of flat while touring but never while commuting, yet. Don't ride so close to the curb so that you're in the dirt. I don't like heavy tires with flat...

    If there's room, I just pass as far as possible and be ready to brake, bail out in the grass or crash into them. If some people get startled, so be it. Like I heard when a mom told her son about to...

    I'Ve seen those videos. They remind me of the movie "The Hunt for the Red October" when Sam Neil's caracter (a soviet defector) asks if he could travel state to state without papers.

    I'd avoid Montreal. It's dirty and they're full of themselves. Bicycles aren't allowed on highway 20. Highway 132 from Rivière-du-Loup is as flat as can be. Very windy though.

    Aren't CD players "digital music players"?

    My first mp3 player was a Sandisk 2Gb. Don't remember the model or year. I bought it because it used an AAA battery.

    It's not uncommon for backpacks to be off the mark by a few liters. 4L can be attributed to how much you roll the bag for closure. It's like weight. Few products weigh what's claimed by the...

    I have an Ursack for travel in treeless areas and haven't lost food from bears yet. Not sure they were ever tested though. I believe they have 2 or more models, one being rodent-proof. They come with...

    I don't think it's much different. There are plenty of people who just pack and go (bike or car) but many search for the best RV for their trip. People travelling by car don't need to worry about...

    The funny thing is I didn't start holding the tent by the back end to clean it until I began using non-freestanding tents.

    There's always something to tie it down, or you can run a guyline to the grass If you're on concrete, chances are you'll be under a shelter anyway. You still want to bring pegs for most situations....

    Even freestanding tents need pegs for the vestibule, and many won't be as effective in the rain without a tensionned (pegged) rain fly. What do you have against pegs?

    Banff to Jasper is a little easier and it makes even more sense if you're going all the way to the coast.

    The NeoAirs aren't insulated yet very warm, thanks to a pretty clever design. The air chambers next to the body never touch the ground. They barely touch the chambers next to the ground.

    I prefer air mats. I sleep on my side too and air mats are thicker, lighter and more compact than self-inflating.
