    Those islands are outside city limits. And the only way you can get there is by boat.
    Well, I-205 does go over Government Island, but I'd have to cross four lanes of a freeway and jump a fence to...

    For those of you that don't like the short reach of the Sports, I have seen the solution, spotted on the streets of Portland yesterday:

    I'm pretty sure that the Sports model frames of the Raleigh, Rudge, and Humber are all the same. But I don't know if there are different dimensions/angles between the 21" and 23" frames. Obviously...

    I can understand why some people would like them, especially back in the 70's when tires were not as good as they are today, especially among riders who can't or don't want to fix flats. But I still...

    Hmm...my 23" Raleigh Wayfarer feels fine with reach, and my bars are fairly swept back (Nitto Albatross). But then again, most people ride 21" frames, since they are the most commonly found on this...

    I'd go for the Delta Cruisers. They are fine for crushed gravel, and I ride them regularly on other non-paved surfaces. While I thought the ride quality of the Col de la Vie were better than Delta...

    I think this is one of those "to each their own" situations. I agree that being stuck/delayed on Amtrak isn't fun. But I don't mind the whole day long or two day long train rides, in fact, I rather...

    I didn't find the Icefields Pkwy particularly tough, though there are a few sections around Sunwapta Pass that are pretty steep.

    +1!!!

    There is a certain irony in being overly concerned with the speed one can get to the start of a bike tour, then move at the pace of 50-60 miles (100 km) a day for the next weeks/months.

    No man, I got that, and the other points you made. I just found humor in the irony of using the term "metal coffin" to disparage rail travel, when the very same thing can be said about air travel.

    The short answer: Yes, you can take a bike on the bus to the coast.

    A few years back I went to the library and took a look at the big ol' Schwinn dealer repair manual from the 70's. They had sections on repairing AW hubs and yes, the 333 hub, with exploded diagrams.

    Understood. With my blog all my comments are moderated, so I'll go through them a few times a week on tour when the wifi is good. The Wordpress app makes it pretty easy to take care of that stuff.
