    Blues Dawg, totally agree about suiting the tire to the terrain. Not a lot of sand or deep gravel in my neck of the woods, and, when I do hit the short patches of it, I power through it. Flotation is...

    Terex, do you live in the Taos area? I did for a while, and have been jonesing for it ever since. Have often thought what delight cycling would be around there.

    Both my bikes serve just these purposes, with different emphases. My Jamis Quest (reviewed on my blog here) is what would have been called a "sport touring" bike in the old days, and I've recently...
  4. Sorry, Pete, yesterday was the day of the ride,...

    Sorry, Pete, yesterday was the day of the ride, so, without feedback on 32, we took the more reliable 32A (what a GORGEOUS cycling road) and then, to include enough mileage as to amount to a true...
  5. Quabbin Area: Best Route from Barre to Ware?

    I'm going to be doing a favorite Massachusetts route this weekend with a friend -- a metric century around the Quabbin Reservoir in Massachusetts. However, this time, instead of taking Rte. 32A from...

    Fredericksburg rentals and routes?

    Greetings, All: Will be visiting Fredericksburg, VA for a family member's wedding weekend in October. I imagine the riding will be beautiful that time of year. Two questions:

    1) A good place to...

    Bought my Vaya lightly used, with 35 mm Small Block Eights on Salsa 'cross rims. They're a popular 26" MTB tire that Kenda wisely adapted for 'cross bikes. Excellent tires - at 60 psi or so, they...

    Sorry to revive such an old thread, but I'm a passionate Vaya rider for about a year now, and was excited to read so much Vaya love here.

    If you're interested, I have *tons* of Vaya ride reports...

    Thanks, guys.

    Keep 'em comin'! Remember -- looking for high-end selection of clothing and gear -- not bikes.
  10. Best Bike Shop in Hartford, Ct *AND* Springfield, MA

    I live in Western Mass and will have a little time on my hands next week. I have some items such as jerseys and a helmet, sunglasses, etc., for which I want to browse in person, with as big a...

    W. Mass is indeed the best. How 'bout posting some of the routes through Chester, if you have them mapped...? ;-)

    Buzzman, I know you! We used to chat a bit here on BF when I was still living in Watertown. Glad to hear you're still enjoying W. Mass -- how 'bout posting links to some of your favorite dirt roads?...

    Bumping this, hoping that it's just low population density causing ppl to be so scarce...

    Hey, Folks, thanks for chiming in! Let's hear from some more regionals!
  15. Could it possibly be that no one has mentioned...

    Could it possibly be that no one has mentioned the topic of "paceline/group-ride etiquette" here? Does no one remember the "You WILL be yelled at" debacle of a few years ago?

    Now THAT was...
  16. Western Mass/Western New England Roll Call

    (Ignore the old screen name, folks, I've lived in beautiful Western Mass for three-plus years now!)

    Cyclists in the area, shout out! There doesn't seem to be much of an online community presence...

    Have to agree with everyone above; very sound advice. The two bikes can be a bit confusing, because they're both multipurpose. But really, they're pretty different.

    The Vaya is technically a...

    I test-rode a Vaya this weekend for 2.5 hours -- on paved road, dirt road, gravel, and single-track -- and fell deeply, madly in love. Being a long-time roadie, I was bummed at first (on the road)....

    I test-road a used one this weekend for 2.5 hours on paved roads, dirt roads, gravel and single-track, and fell deeply, madly in love. I've never ridden a bike quite like it. Needless to say, I'm...

    Thanks for the idea, mbusha, it sounds delightful! Unfortunately, I think it'll be too ambitious. My wife hasn't ridden more than six or seven miles, so I'm thinking a small loop of about that...

    Very kind, Mbusha, I'll check them out.

    Just so everyone knows, we're not going to be touring by bike; my wife's not avid enough for that. But I think I can lure her into a couple short, pretty...

    Thanks, Lucille. I'll check that out, and also post what I find.

  25. Need Tips: Cycling in Florence, Siena and Cinque Terre

    Wife and I'll be visiting those spots in mid-April. I posted this in the European forum, but would love American perspectives also, on:
