    April used to be a very crappy/silly weathered month to ride into, but then I am in Quebec City, a few degrees up north more than Montreal. It still is but it gets better as spring turn on more and...

    Not going across Canada, but I'm planning something like a St-Lawrence Gulf tour, with a ride on the Nordik Express boat in the lower North Coast (Basse-Côte-Nord) cities, and lots of ferries...

    Thanks, Tuck'! Yep, I'm very glad about it, but it won't finish its life already as the city-winter-bike (maybe a winter-trail bike though)

    Right, then, 1991 it is! I thought 1990 from the serial...

    Well I forgot to say that the FD acted a little stubborn and I couldn't pass the chain on the 28T at first. But then, at the end of the commute back from practice, there is ONE short but brutal hill...

    New addition to my stable: Rocky Mountain Fusion 1990

    Hey guys!

    I was searching the classified ads for some spare parts to upgrade my old not-so-beater, a 1997 Rocky Mountain Whistler which has seen great use in the last decade as my...

    Hello Sachelis,

    I would say as Erick L.: I wouldn't ride the higway 155 all the way. It's a beautiful road, but north of La Tuque - La Bostonnais it gets narrower (no shoulder) and there is lots...

    Hello airelise!

  10. Half and half commuting (half car/half bike)

    Hi folks!

    I am about to get transferred (hope so, at least!) for work, closer to my home, but in fact work will be further away. Lemme explain: in summertime, I work as a wildland firefighter. I...

    Indeed, a 4 km (close to 2.5 mi) is a nice running commute: you don't get too exhausted, you can simply wipe out and change when you come to work, your running clothes are not totally wet (so you are...

    2.5 to 3 km also for me is the tipping point; being able to juste walk home from work, if it' under 30min is so much less fuzz. If you ever have to be in trouble with your bike, whatever that will...

    Yeah, I'll agree with most here: if I go to school or I plan of having a long day at one (or maybe two) place, then I'll choose a backpack. I don't have a locker so fiddling around with panniers is...

    Spud, what you are describing might be that you lack the habit of pedalling at a high cadence. I started taking care of my pedalling strokes at spinning classes a few years ago, and it really helped...

    Same for me here. I have semi-minimalist shoes for road (Saucony Kinvaras, might switch to Inov-8 Road X-Lite 155) and off-road ( Inov-8 X-Talon 212). I do add some pure barefoot training in summer...
