    How much are you getting it for? This could make a big difference as to whether it's a good buy or not. $20, no question. $200, maybe not. I have a Wenzel Lone Tree that was ~$35 and a great tent in...

    I've read nothing but good things about the Cannondale touring bikes. Personally, I would inspect it very well for a crease or signs of cracking and if it seemed good, I'd ride it as long as the dent...

    I'm pretty sure that's ~3/4lb savings compared to the standard Surly LHT fork. Then another couple pounds for the frame going AL versus steel(depending on the frames, of course) and you could be...

    Did you get your 5 for the order yet? Do they indicate any sort of safe weight rating for a front rack on this fork? For me, It would Need to be able to carry 10lbs on each side for a very long life...

    I too am a fan of multiple smaller bags for organization. It's nice to have everything in it's own place, and easily accessible when you want it. And I also don't wear bike jerseys. I like a marino...

    I don't know if it's caliper alignment, but I must say it does show that something isn't right. BB7s stop hard without even having to squeeze the lever too hard. There are Many Many people to back...

    Why does it work via wi-fi rather than phone signal? What if you're not near wi-fi? It seems like the theft notice aspect of it would be extremely limited by that aspect. And why does it only work...

    The Blackburn looks like a much more touring-friendly rack, to me. And weight capacity probably won't matter much. You probably won't put 40lbs on there anyway. Even if you do, it might be fine, or...
