    You get about twenty different sized mounting brackets with the light, and four or five of the part that the light attaches to, so you should be fine ordering one light, as far as mounting hardware...

    I just received this light in the mail a couple of days ago and mounted it on the bike today. AS far as my very scientific test of looking at it flashing against the wall of my living room, it's...

    I think bikemig got autocorrected out of what he wanted to type, which was 'bikepacking.' This entails lightening your load and using smaller frame bags rather than racks and panniers. Not many here...

    That's interesting. I have a Disc Trucker too, and I find it to be incredibly easy to ride with no hands loaded or unloaded. Tubus something in the back and Duo on the front. It's definitely easier...

    You might be surprised to find out how quickly this becomes second nature. Maybe it depends on how stable you feel on a bike though, i.e. riding with one hand or no hands. After seeing a relatively...

    I've done it on my fixed gear commuter when I didn't have a wrench for the wheel nuts. It's not the most convenient, but it's possible, and not really that difficult. I'd definitely rather take the...

    Thanks so much for the help. Great information. The lack of campsites is a concern. I do a lot of free camping here, but I think I'll be hesitant to try it out straight away on this trip, not having...

    What about heading south on the old 195? Looks like it runs alongside the new highway and I can meander down to Lewiston before heading west. Is there any redeeming value to this or should I just try...

    Thanks for all the suggestions. Vantage Bridge sounds decidedly unpleasant. It seems like the best riding from Spokane is north, rather than south or west. That North Cascades Highway looks like it...

    Thanks Huey. This is the direction I'm leaning, as I have never ridden out that way at all, and as suggested above, I can detour inland for any special stops.

    adventurepdx, thanks for all of the information! The lack of services is an issue. I have no issue stealth camping if there are no campsites around, but not if I'm crossing fences to do so. I could...

    Thanks for the response. I'm fine getting to Spokane. I'll actually be flying back to the US from Tokyo, and my friend who lives in Spokane will be picking me up from wherever I fly into.

    Thanks...

    Hi everyone,

    I think that if you are a) reasonably fit, b) have no chronic medical issues, and c) have a bike that fits you, you can ride a ton of miles with very little training beforehand. Take it slow, stop...

    Yeah, so I'm not totally sure what to think about this. Track bike turned family hauler.

    Good deal. One of the drawbacks of living in Japan is the total and utter lack of old used mountain bikes. I really want to build a single speed fat tire beater but can't find a good deal on a frame...

    You can get clipless shoes that are more walkable, like the Chromes and DZRs, but the more flexible sole (better for walking) might lead to hotspots when using a smaller pedal like eggbeaters. I use...
