    I've also put a few thousand miles on my Brooks Cambium and love it. Hurt at first, as all saddles will, but eventually felt great. As a vegan, I was very, very happy to see Brooks release this...

    I don't currently have time to go through the replies to see what's already been said, so I apoligize if any of this information is redundant.

    Last summer, as part of my cross-country trek, I...

    I've done several tours with toe clips and standard sneakers. I think there are a lot of people who would recommend going clipless over this approach, but each has its advantages and disadvantages....
  4. Thanks so much for all of the very practical...

    Thanks so much for all of the very practical advice, everyone. I guess the timing of post was pretty good, huh? With relations thawing between the US and Cuba, it sounds like I might even be able to...
  5. CUBA. Who has done it? What's the deal with camping?

    Hi all. Last year I did a cross-island tour of Puerto Rico. See the video here. It was very fun, and very beautiful. A lot of people said that it couldn't or shouldn't be done for various reasons,...
  6. Hey everyone. I meant to update this after I got...

    Hey everyone. I meant to update this after I got back from our cross country tour, but forgot.

    We ended up doing the bridge shuttle. Basically, you just ride up to the bridge plaza (it will be on...

    Tent space heaters for winter touring?

    Hi all! Ok, I'll preface this by admitting that I am all about those creature comforts. I'm pretty good about not overpacking on tour, but if something can make my life significantly more comfortable...
  8. Cyclist in a pinch - need a ride from Pueblo, CO to Dolores, CO

    Hey all. Long story short, I am in a situation wherein I might be riding the Western Express on my own. Since this is super dangerous this time of year, I am hoping to meet up with another group who...
  9. Riding the Western Express in July - looking for companions and advice (night riding)

    Hey everyone, so I mentioned on here a while back that I was debating on whether or not I should try to cross the desert via the Western Express route this summer.

    Well, it's becoming less of a...
  10. Crossing the Chesapeake Bay by/with a bicycle - is there any practical way to do it?

    Hi everyone. I'm kind of at my wit's end trying to figure out ways to get across the Chesapeake Bay in a way that is at all practical/cheap. It seems that literally all of the bridges that cross the...
  11. Carrying all panniers at once while off-bike?

    Hi all, I just wanted to see what solutions you've found for carrying all of your panniers at once while off your bike.

    I'll be riding across the US soon and am considering making a light, large...
  12. Thanks much. That seems to be the consensus here,...

    Thanks much. That seems to be the consensus here, so perhaps I'll hold off and just pick up chainrings when I see them over the next few months and set them aside for when I really need them. Perhaps...
  13. Thanks so much for the advice so far, everyone....

    Thanks so much for the advice so far, everyone. So yes, I measured the distance between the bolts and the two larger chainrings are indeed 110mm. At first look, these seem to be a lot less common...
  14. My Shimano SG triple crankset is SMOKED. Best way to move forward?

    Hi all. Ok, so I'm preparing my Novara Randonee tourer for a cross country tour that's set to take place this summer. While taking everything off to clean, I noticed that my crankset is in WAY worse...

    Thank you both, very much. Huey - to answer your question, I haven't gotten the ACA maps yet, because I wanted to ask if this was even possible first. It sounds like it is, so my next step is going...
  17. Thanks for the advice, everyone. I ended up doing...

    Thanks for the advice, everyone. I ended up doing what everyone said, although instead of using dawn, I just used Simple Green and let it sit for a few seconds. Sprayed it off in my sink, and it's...
  18. Safe to clean a Park TS-2 truing stand with degreaser/hose?

    Hi everyone. I recently purchased a TS-2 truing stand second-hand. It's fairly old, and looks to be from the 90s. It has quite a bit of grease on the exterior and inside on the springs. It seems to...
  19. Western Express - are there ANY services between towns in Nevada and Western Utah?

    Hi everyone. First of all, I'm sorry for posting a few questions about the same trip, but these concerns are kind of distinct from one another.

    Anyway, my question this time is fairly specific. In...
  20. Hi, I'm just quickly responding to your comment...

    Hi, I'm just quickly responding to your comment about my front rack. I understand that it is supposed to include the "V-stay" loop thing that goes over the front wheel. But why? I only ask because I...
  21. Bottles in third undercarriage water bottle cage are hitting my front wheel - help!

    Hi everyone. So, I just got a third bottle cage to go underneath my downtube, as I'll be doing a cross-country bike trip this summer and will need all of the water storage I can get. Thing is, when I...
  22. Blackburn FL-1 front rack / other affordable front racks?

    Hey everyone. I'm in the market for a front, low-rider rack for my 2002 Novara Randonee touring bike. I'm looking for something fairly inexpensive ($30-$40), and the Blackburn FL-1 definitely meets...
  23. Hi everyone. First of all, I just want to extend...

    Hi everyone. First of all, I just want to extend a big thanks for all of the helpful feedback so far. The general idea that I'm taking away from everything that's been said up to this point is that...
  24. Is it possible to pass through the American SW in July without becoming buzzard food?

    Hi all. So, along with two friends, I am preparing to embark on a tour from the Philadelphia area to the west coast this summer. I generically say "west coast" because we are at some disagreement as...
  25. Hey, so there honestly isn't a whole ton of logic...

    Hey, so there honestly isn't a whole ton of logic behind me owning a bamboo bike aside from me really liking the aesthetics. I have a few bikes mades from traditional materials and figured I'd try...
