    If it fits and you like it I would go for the Fuji. That is a great deal. Rebuilding the wheels is relatively inexpensive if they are an issue. Disc brakes are nice, but not necessary. I don't own a...

    I agree that being car-free you need more than one bike. When I was living that way I had a Raleigh 3 speed that was my daily rider and a Motobecane 10 speed that was used for longer rides, touring...

    I have only had one tire damaged to the point where a boot would not repair it. But that was many years ago and is a notable exception. A spare tire on a fully loaded touring bike is not enough extra...

    Fracking is unsustainable, they have to have high per barrel prices to justify the cost of drilling the wells, once the price drops they lose money on the wells and the financing dries up.

    We have reached peak oil, there is no doubt. Read the articles. As part of the peak oil phenomenon prices will spike and fall, then they will spike again, each time a bit higher.

    It will boil down to what works for you. I have one bike with baskets on it that I can just plop my grocery bags in. Another has a large set of panniers that stay fastened to the bike, they are...

    Depends on where and what I am riding. I always wear gloves, I have seen the results of a road crash where the guy wasn't wearing gloves. Not pretty and even today some 30 years later he doesn't have...

    I clean mine and use flux, never have a problem getting the solder to stick. For cleaning I use something along the lines of Acetone, MEK or Tolulene to strip the grease and oil out.

    Tubes, definitely. Tire maybe. I am a thrifty soul and hate to swap out a tire that still has life left in it. If I think it will wear out before the tour is over I may take a spare, or put the new...

    IGH is going to be the easiest way to add gearing. How much are you willing to spend? Can you build your own wheels? That will save you some money. I just built up a set of wheels for a city bike....

    You know they come in two sizes? I have the large and still have two fists worth of seat post showing. Curse of being 6'-2" with long legs.
