    Zefal makes a nice bike mirror that attatches to the bottom of the drops with a stretchy rubber thingy. I can still ride in the drops, and I can move the mirror from bike to bike. I've tried both...

    There's also a canal route out of Paris that takes you all the way to Meaux, so you may not need to train it to Saarbruecken/Saarlouis/Metz at all, and that's my plan for a July trip. I have 10 days...

    Check the weather. November/December would definitely not be my preferred time to travel around the Med -- it could be both cold and rainy. Can you wait until March, when it will be getting much...

    I've been to much of the area a few thousand years ago, but never on a bicycle. I want to enjoy the riding, stay in clean hotels (or AirBnB, perhaps), eat plenty of croissants and not kill myself on...

    Shame we are so far apart. I would volunteer to check it out for you.

    Did you ever post a picture of the folded bike inside the case?

    Anyone got route suggestions from Paris to Frankfurt? It doesn't seem to be directly on any of the Eurovelo routes, although there may be ways to combine two of the routes. I've got about 10 days to...

    Have you tried a Bike Friday in the case? The Pocket Rocket has 451 wheels rather than 405 (I think), so it folds a little bigger. Having said that, I love the idea of hand luggage that fits inside...

    Many thanks. I'll take the bike to a store that has the Arkel, which is probably easier to find than the Rixen in this part of the world, and see if we can make it work.

    Next problem. If I have a...
  10. Handlebar bag on Bike Friday with split handlebars

    I've got a Bike Friday Pocket Rocket, with (easier to pack?) split handlebars, but am wondering how that's going to work if I want to add a handlebar bag. Anyone out there with a drop-bar, split-bar...

    +1

    You got bike routes inside Toronto that are nicer than Niagara, Daniel4? We have nice trails, but they spit you out into endless subdivisions.

    I would start in Niagara on the Lake and ride it counterclockwise. That way you have the spectacular Niagara Falls to look forward to near to the end, and you can always spend the night in NOTL to...

    How far do you want to ride? The Niagara region will be wonderful in August -- fruit stands, wineries. There's a loop of roads/trails that takes in Niagara Falls, Niagara on the Lake and then up...

    Things firming up here too. Dragged the spouse along the GAP last year (he likes his biking in short, sharp spurts, while I prefer a longer, slower route), and he loved it, and then I went to Oregon...

    I'm a great fan of a real bed, a hot shower and sound-dampening, bug-proof windows after a long day on the bike. And not taking camping gear means I only need one set of panniers, so that makes the...

    SS coupler bikes won't fold quickly enough to fit a bike onto a bus or other transit -- they are packable bikes, not foldable ones. That may be the case for most 26-inch wheel bikes too. It's bikes...
