    You can't blame Google Maps for that. Many paper maps don't show bike paths at all, you can't zoom in or use street view to see what the road looks like. No elevation chart or business search. Once I...

    I've had a few paper maps leading to dirt tracks and quad trails. I don't find them any better.

    I know. I had a Surly which has a similar design but I found I had no use for the lower position so I got the OMM, which is lighter and less bulky.

    I still wouldn't change because I don't like low-riders. The argument for low-riders is better handling but I don't see it. They're more table at speed but high-riders are hardly unstable. I find...

    I use a Old Man Mountain Sherpa and wouldn't change it for anything else. I've used low-riders before and prefer the high-rider with platform.

    Have you tried "just" Google Maps instead of 3rd party websites? I think it work well enough, but you're limited to a certain number of points. You can make multiple maps and look at them together. I...

    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...

    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'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.

    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...

    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?
