    Bikes cost more outside the US. Unfortunately, I need a bike ASAP and I have almost no choices. It is either this bike or a 2013 GT series 2 at a second hand dealer, already setup, for $725. There...

    The price is roughly $525. I say roughly because the bike is in South Africa and the price is in Rands. I am going to pass on the bike since I do not have time to get it serviced.

    I think dtrain is onto something. All the parts look replaced, even the brakes are 105.

    The bike is at a pawn shop. I need to buy a bike of that size rather quickly and it seems like a good deal....

    Can anyone identify this Trek 1.2?

    Found this bike in a store. Frame says 1.2 (One?), but it has 105 derailleurs, which might not be stock. Any insights?436090

    Cycling in Cape Town/South Africa

    I am traveling in Africa and I should be arriving in Cape Town in mid February. My plan is to spend a month there in a cheap rental and purchase a used bike. Found out that the Argus tour will be...

  7. Can't catch a break in SF. First a crash, then my bike was stolen.

    Been spending a few weeks in San Francisco while I transition between lives. Putzed around, went up some steep streets, over the Golden Gate a couple of times, and even tried to do a solo century...
  8. Anyone looking to sell storage gear (travel cases, wheel bags, etc..)?

    I am leaving California in a few weeks, but I will be leaving my bike behind with a friend since I intend to return to CA sometime in 2015. I don't want my bike taking up too much space in his shed,...

    That's not what I meant. If I enter on one day via car and obtain a 7 day pass, can I enter another day via bicycle using the same pass? Right now the question is moot since I did my Yosemite trip...

    Biking in Yosemite

    I am leaving (temporarily?) northern California soon, so I am trying to visit most of the sites I missed. I have been visited Lake Tahoe before, but never biked it. Did the loop today. :thumb:

    When I mention the difficulty of transporting gear, I mean the bicycle and clothes. If I start off my trip in Africa, but not on the tour, what do I do with the bike in the meantime? At this point I...

    Thanks for the response. The idea for this trip only started 2 weeks ago, so I really have not fully formed the idea in my head. My initial thought was not to bike exclusively, but to backpack...

    No double centuries for us. :)

    Tour de Fuzz is the only close ride, but I am trying to find a couple of transfer. I would be the perfect ride.

    If nothing is happening, we might just bike around Lake Tahoe.

  20. Exciting bike rides around the world with easy rentals?

    When life throws you lemons, you make lemonade! Taking a sabbatical from work/life and going to travel. I would love to combine my love of biking with my travels, but it seems tough.

    I guess asking about supported tours is a no-no in this forum. :)

    Thanks for all that responded to my previous thread "Can a road biker transition into touring?"

    I decided that I do not have enough time to become a full-on "tourer". My plan is to travel...
