    I don't see a specific request, but whatever. It was a joke, not a snarky remark.

    Looks like a nice weekend out and back ride. Any recommendations on parking in Richmond and camping in the Jamestown/Williamsburg area?

    What fun would it be if someone didn't get all up in arms about this? Poking fun at bike marketers is great sport. Personally, I would find it entertaining if someone took this seriously. Adding a...

    You would need to get an urban trail and pavement bike. Just so you know, there's a specific bike for each use. Such a bike is not designed for suburban or rural areas, so make sure it is rated for...

    Commuting by bike to vote

    Does anyone commute or ride their bike to vote? I never have, because the beginning and end of my commute is by car, not by bike, so I would have to go home and hop on my bike, rather than stopping...

    Anyone who's posted in the 5 or less category, what did you wear? Pics or it didn't happen.

    How could you wear 5 items or less of clothing to work? Shirt, shoes, shorts is already 4. Socks, helmet, gloves, sunglasses: pick 1?

    I drove my car to work. Too much snow on the MUPs still.

    No it hasn't. Maybe it "felt" like a long year, but it was the same length as others, and actually will be a day shorter than 2016. :)

    Anyway, glad to hear you are doing well. Keep it up! You...

    I saved a lot of time by not reading this thread. As they say, time is money, so just think about the savings. Really, 8 pages about spending or saving money by bike commuting?

    I camped out in the low 30s last fall, and I must say its not for me. If it had been raining, I would have bailed. Only thing nice is no bugs and no one else around. Not my idea of fun to lie...

    Yup, 3 feet here. Drove to work even though the office is officially closed. MUPs have footprints, but no sign of clearing, which is a good thing, because all resources should be devoted to...

    Two straps linked together and buckled behind the dry bag hold it in the Terrapin harness. The side straps on the harness also tighten around the front, making for a secure load. Nice design.

    Here is a close up of the Revelate Harness with the small bag that clips on the front. If you like riding in the drops, a narrower dry bag would be nice, which just requires a few more folds and...

    I wish I was in your situation, that I could ride whenever and wherever. Of course, I love riding, and have so many places to ride around here. No idea where you live, but if there is somewhere you...

    Also, I'd recommend the Revelate Terrapin and Terrapin dry bag over the other saddle bags. So easy to undo a couple buckles and remove the dry bag to bring in the tent. Also, you can add another...

    I used a bikepacking setup for a trip this winter, and it worked great. Kind of limits the amount if gear you can carry, so you have to be careful packing and bring only what you really need. I...

    If by "stealth camping" you are referring to illegally trespassing, I don't do it. If you want to blend into the terrain, you'd have to go with something that blends in, so it depends on the...

    You can only mount 1/2 a fender on the front, unfortunately. But on the bright side, there is a substantial weight savings.
