    I found my Edge 800 gets really confused if there is a discrepancy between the map used to create the route, the map on the device, and where a road is in reality. Wherever the route crosses a road...

    I'm guessing not many people use that feature since Surly ships Pugsley frames with symmetrical forks now. The offset fork is still available and sold separately.

    I made it to the end of my 300 this weekend, but my Garmin didn't. I prepared for this possibility by bringing a USB battery, but brought the wrong cable. We had about 150 km of head winds, but...

    If progress means getting rid of a perfectly usable bike to buy something new, then I guess I'm against progress. Sounds more like consumerism than progress to me.

    Unless you can try to correct them in a friendly manner your actions will almost certainly not be well received. Most people immediately become defensive if they feel they are in a confrontational...

    Lithium in general doesn't do very well in the cold, which is why I picked a light with huge rated runtime. This week I got less than 2 hours from my XML-3 on low which is rated at 10 hours.
