    I used a Da Brim Rezzo (front only, no rear overhang) on RAGBRAI this year and was very glad to have it. It proved useful on the two rainy days as well. Had some issues with wind buffeting on fast...

    Rode my first Ragbrai last week and although I saw LOTS of bikes I remember seeing what I considered to be an unusual number of Kleins (at one point there was a group of 5-6 of them riding together.)...

    If you just need occasional protection the O2 Tyvex gear is cheap and effective. Not super durable but you can probably get 2-3 years out of it.

    Curb find: trashed Mercian

    Here in New Orleans bike theft is rampant so we have a local Facebook group whose members are attempting to stem the tide (with some success.) Abandoned frames are often reported to the group and...

    Regular shorts and sneakers would be ok I guess, depends on how comfortable your bike is, how much you're hauling and how far you're riding each day. I'd do a trip like that on my touring bike with a...

    Got enough things attached to my latest build ('85 Peugeot P18C) to ride it a few blocks - yeah the front der isn't hooked up and the rear brake needs dialing in but I COULD. NOT. RESIST.

    "Stoker (Reluctant, Masher, Individualistic.)"
