    Tubus racks are awesome, and you'll be very happy with them. In terms of carrying water, you have a few options.

    Mount bottle cages everywhere you can. Depending on the frame size, most touring...

    Well, yes. I think some people like urban touring and some don't. It's a matter of preference, and it's a different set of skills.

    I've toured in New York, Boston, Baltimore, DC, Philadelphia,...

    I rode from Boston to New York in 2010. I took a week to ride 300+ miles, and to this day that tour is one of my favorite tours - certainly my favorite I've done solo. Here's my journal on Crazyguy,...

    +1 to the recommendation of the Ortlieb rollers. I use them with a heady-duty dry bag across the back rack for more gear. (It's more or less the same idea as the Ortlieb rack pack, just cheaper.)

  7. Ramp-up bike for cyclocross for $500 - is it possible?

    A co-worker is interested in getting into triathalons and cyclocross. While he could go out and buy a brand-name cross bike, he very wisely has decided to first find something inexpensive to see if...

    How about a Fort Dix ride? That's not too far a drive for any of us. Lots of long, flat riding.

    If people want hills, Princeton is a good area for them.

    Preferences?

    Speak for yourself. I have them on two of my bikes, and flats on the others. While clipless is doubtless more efficient, I find loose toe clips and straps great for distance riding. All due respect,...

    That's an amazing book! The best thing I've read by Silverberg so far, hands down. Here's my review of it.

    Alastair Reynolds, Pushing Ice. It's a good, near-future SF novel, that may turn into a first-contact story. More politics in it than I expected, though.

    I read that years ago and loved it. You'd probably also like A Prayer for Owen Meany. I've been unable to get into anything else by John Irving, but this book is wonderful; I've read through a copy...

    ^ Great to hear! Has NJ transit documented this anywhere, or is it another "invisible" policy change?
  18. NJ Transit - can bikes board trains at low-level platforms?

    Is there still a restriction in place disallowing bikes from boarding at low-level platforms? Or has this "rule" been removed, as I've heard?

    A good point!

    Keep in mind that the train is a real option for touring; you can take a loaded touring bike on it with relative ease. The biggest restriction is that you need to avoid peak hours...

    The hills outside Lambertville are definitely not "nice friendly" hills. They're long and steep. And then you round a corner and there are more of them. It's a great area to ride, just be prepared...

    Sand also likes to hide in a bike's drivetrain. I lost a rear derailer near Pemberton, in part because of this. Be careful and bring something along to clean your chain and cogs, or at least wipe...

    I rode with chefisaac the other day, and I can assure you he's no wannabe-tourer who will purchase gear and let it gather dust in the garage.
