    I don't know the region you'll be camping, but a camp stove will be much easier and faster to cook over. A good camp stove (can't address the alcohol stove, since I've never used one) is much easier...

    Google Nexus durability?

    Has anyone taken a Google Nexus 7 on tour? I'm planning an off-road tour in Colorado this summer, and it seems that the Nexus 7 has a GPS antenna, is less expensive than a Garmin hiking GPS, has a...

    I'd like to do the Colorado Section of the GDMBR this year, but I'm not sure how late I'll need to start for the snow to be melted off. If I start near the beginning of July, would the trail be...

    Not to mention lowering your bottom bracket by more than an inch. Pedal strike will become a problem.

    In most places, the low temperature usually occurs near dawn. If in doubt, take the gloves. The worst case scenario is that they end up staying in your bag the whole time, which beats the hell out...

    I don't know what would be causing the vibration, but I very much doubt that it is caused by the new cassette. The rear derailleur will need to be re-adjusted for the new rear wheel; my first guess...

    Are you doing the Iron Horse trail? If so, you'll probably want the fattest tires you can fit on the bike. Some of the gravel on that trail is really loose and deep. I rode some of the western...
