  1. Riding the Western Express in July - looking for companions and advice (night riding)

    Hey everyone, so I mentioned on here a while back that I was debating on whether or not I should try to cross the desert via the Western Express route this summer.

    Well, it's becoming less of a...
  2. Crossing the Chesapeake Bay by/with a bicycle - is there any practical way to do it?

    Hi everyone. I'm kind of at my wit's end trying to figure out ways to get across the Chesapeake Bay in a way that is at all practical/cheap. It seems that literally all of the bridges that cross the...
  3. Carrying all panniers at once while off-bike?

    Hi all, I just wanted to see what solutions you've found for carrying all of your panniers at once while off your bike.

    I'll be riding across the US soon and am considering making a light, large...
  4. Thanks much. That seems to be the consensus here,...

    Thanks much. That seems to be the consensus here, so perhaps I'll hold off and just pick up chainrings when I see them over the next few months and set them aside for when I really need them. Perhaps...
  5. Thanks so much for the advice so far, everyone....

    Thanks so much for the advice so far, everyone. So yes, I measured the distance between the bolts and the two larger chainrings are indeed 110mm. At first look, these seem to be a lot less common...
  6. My Shimano SG triple crankset is SMOKED. Best way to move forward?

    Hi all. Ok, so I'm preparing my Novara Randonee tourer for a cross country tour that's set to take place this summer. While taking everything off to clean, I noticed that my crankset is in WAY worse...

  8. Thank you both, very much. Huey - to answer your...

    Thank you both, very much. Huey - to answer your question, I haven't gotten the ACA maps yet, because I wanted to ask if this was even possible first. It sounds like it is, so my next step is going...
  9. Thanks for the advice, everyone. I ended up doing...

    Thanks for the advice, everyone. I ended up doing what everyone said, although instead of using dawn, I just used Simple Green and let it sit for a few seconds. Sprayed it off in my sink, and it's...
  10. Safe to clean a Park TS-2 truing stand with degreaser/hose?

    Hi everyone. I recently purchased a TS-2 truing stand second-hand. It's fairly old, and looks to be from the 90s. It has quite a bit of grease on the exterior and inside on the springs. It seems to...
  11. Western Express - are there ANY services between towns in Nevada and Western Utah?

    Hi everyone. First of all, I'm sorry for posting a few questions about the same trip, but these concerns are kind of distinct from one another.

    Anyway, my question this time is fairly specific. In...
  12. Hi, I'm just quickly responding to your comment...

    Hi, I'm just quickly responding to your comment about my front rack. I understand that it is supposed to include the "V-stay" loop thing that goes over the front wheel. But why? I only ask because I...
  13. Bottles in third undercarriage water bottle cage are hitting my front wheel - help!

    Hi everyone. So, I just got a third bottle cage to go underneath my downtube, as I'll be doing a cross-country bike trip this summer and will need all of the water storage I can get. Thing is, when I...
  14. Blackburn FL-1 front rack / other affordable front racks?

    Hey everyone. I'm in the market for a front, low-rider rack for my 2002 Novara Randonee touring bike. I'm looking for something fairly inexpensive ($30-$40), and the Blackburn FL-1 definitely meets...
  15. Hi everyone. First of all, I just want to extend...

    Hi everyone. First of all, I just want to extend a big thanks for all of the helpful feedback so far. The general idea that I'm taking away from everything that's been said up to this point is that...
  16. Is it possible to pass through the American SW in July without becoming buzzard food?

    Hi all. So, along with two friends, I am preparing to embark on a tour from the Philadelphia area to the west coast this summer. I generically say "west coast" because we are at some disagreement as...
  17. Hey, so there honestly isn't a whole ton of logic...

    Hey, so there honestly isn't a whole ton of logic behind me owning a bamboo bike aside from me really liking the aesthetics. I have a few bikes mades from traditional materials and figured I'd try...
  18. Awesome, thanks. Plan on keeping this single...

    Awesome, thanks. Plan on keeping this single speed, so I guess there's no point in leaving it on there?
  19. What is this mystery thing mounted on my frame?

    Hi all, I have an Organic Bikes Caleb bamboo road bike. I love it, but I'm a little confused as to the nature of this thing that's mounted onto my frame. It looks like a frame pump mount, but I don't...
  20. Any convenient way of converting GPX or KML files to cue sheets or get from website?

    Hey everyone. I don't know if I'm going crazy or just not looking in the right direction, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to get printable, easy-to-read turn by turn cue sheets from...
  21. Touring bike feels VERY different from road bike (in a bad way)?

    Hi all. So or a while, my touring bike (a 56cm 2004 Novara Randonee) was my only ride, and at the time I had no real problem with it because I had no good point of reference. Well more recently I...
  22. Does anyone have that Sea Shepherd jersey? Australia people maybe?

    Hi all. So, hopefully this doesn't devolve into a debate over SSCS, but I just wanted to see if anyone out there had this jersey that the Australian office was selling a few months ago. I really,...

    WOW. Thanks for all of the tips, everyone. I appreciate all of the advice so far being really practical and clear (as opposed to someone saying "use your gut" although I totally understand the...
  25. Tips for traveling one-lane/winding roads?

    Like I mentioned in an earlier post, I'm getting ready for my first tour anywhere outside of the continental United States. A friend and I are leaving for Puerto Rico on Wednesday. Our route looks...
