    I hope you wear a flak jacket everywhere.

    I'm old and stupid and did the California coast on a Surly Steamroller. It was enormously fun. So I'd say if you want to have a track-esque bike when you're done with your tour, get a Steamroller. ...

    The pace of life that we experienced in NZ was right up my alley. And yes --- the ladies we met tended to be super friendly and also, looked right up my alley. (If my wife ever reads this: I didn't...

    The wife and I spent a week in Napier on our honeymoon. We loved the area a lot. Like a whole lot. We-would-move-there kind of a lot.

    I run a Surly cog and chainring with the SRAM PC-7X. Dead quiet with every lube I've tried.

    As far as centuries go, I think if you train up to it and learn to listen to your body, you'll be fine no matter what the road throws at you. A heartrate monitor helps a lot too. Example: when I...

    It's not a big deal. Weinmann DP18s are notorious for this as well, and I've never heard of one failing. This includes about 5k miles on one myself.
