    The Vaya and the AWOL feel pretty similar in my opinion. Sloping tubes, steel frame, low BB drop. The AWOL is a bit less expensive and probably more readily available to test ride. I can’t say enough...

    30 yesterday and 18 today. 20-25mph head winds heading out. Hit 34mph on the flats with my steel Vaya on the way back. Wish I always had a 25mph tail wind.

    Honestly, one of the best things you can do for your riding it to ride in groups stronger than you. Keep up the best you can, draft when necessary. I think people would be surprised how much faster...

    I got a shuttle from St Charles out to Rocheport then rode back. Being right there in StL, you should give it a go. I think I got the shuttle from Katy Bike Rental. Stayed in the Hostel in Tebbets...

    Personally, I would make it 2.5-3 days. Ohiopyle is an awesome place to explore. Also the trail from Ohiopyle to Cumberland is impressive. 70 a day wouldnt give you much time to enjoy. I did just...

    John, it is a 2011 Vaya. They were either orange or metallic charcoal that year. It looks great in the sun.

    2013 wasn't the best year on the bike. Lots of big events in my life. Some good and some bad, but all seemed to get in the way of my riding. I had planned a couple weekend tours that didn't happen. I...

    I'd look for a used LHT. I had a CC and even used it on a weekend tour. The geometry just wasn't suited for touring...even with a ton of spacer that most people are running.

    Sorry but I just saw this. The fenders are Planet Bike. They couldn't take much bigger tires than the 700x37 WTB pictured. I just picked up SKS 50 Longboards that should work with the Conti 42s I...

    Yeah, they are a little pricey. I built mine up from the frame and a donor bike from Craiglist, so it wasn't too bad.

    Why not the Salsa Vaya? Sloping top tube, disc brakes and will supposedly fit up to 45s. I've had 42s on mine. I've done single track, used it to commute and done fully loaded touring on it. Handled...

    Thanks for all the comments on my Salsa. It is by far, my favorite bike. I wasn't sure about the top tube when I got it. I had a CrossCheck before. Not sure why, but the Surly never felt quite right,...

    Congrats on the 10 miles. What is that saying...."a journey of 1000 miles starts with a single step". I was around 290lbs when I hit 40. I remember that first real bike ride. I did 10 miles. I went 5...

    Did you say you had a stem extender installed? I am assuming that is to raise the bars to put you in a more vertical position? What a lot of people don't realize is the more upright you sit, the more...
