    I still have not figured out how a chihuahua gets to weigh 20 pounds. Internets say 6 pounds full-grown weight. Could Internets lie?

    Sounds fun.

    And thanks for the day pass trip. Clearly the way to go.

    I try to be organized, and fail miserably, so it ends up as "keep the rain gear at the top so it's easy to get at and the devil take the rest."

    Every couple of days I dump everything from the...

    Portland bike stores

    I'll be in Portland for a day next week, staying near the Expo Center. There's nothing I need, but I love drooling over the goods in bike stores, accessories rather than bikes, and I hear Portland...

    New Zealand has a huge network of hostels, and I stayed in a couple earlier this year -- even a single room was cheaper than hotel/motel. Price includes just half an hour of wi-fi, but I can live...

    I'll be heading that way next month, middle of the month, I believe, so I suppose anything could happen between now and then. Did you notice the fires from your route?

    I'd question the 40lbs of gear as much as the 25mm tires. You really want to lug 40lbs of gear up and down hills, not to mention forest roads? Can you cut that down?

    My folder creaked when the fold mechanism wasn't done up tightly enough (in the unfold position, of course). I tightened the stem, and the creaking stopped.

    It's a Bike Friday, so the fold is...

    For me it's bike shorts and jerseys on the bike (I like the pockets) and one set of clothes for off the bike, or perhaps two wool tshirts, one long sleeved, one short. I can wear them under a bike...

    Rode Dresden to Watkins Glen and back today, and hills are very manageable, especially with a tailwind (on the way back). Good wide shoulder all the way and respectful drivers.

    I basically take two sets of clothes for on the bike and one for off. Bike shoes and super light weight other shoes. Don't forget rain gear. Bare minimum toiletries. For the bike I have spare tube...

    You need to figure how how small the bikes need to fold, and start from there -- maybe go back and ask your question in the folder forum, accepting that everyone will favor his/her bike a little. I...

    Back to the folding bike idea, and I'd look at Bromptons for a quick, small fold and good comfort on the road. Bike Fridays have the comfort (and then some), but with the exception of the Tikit they...

    SPD MTB shoes or sandals for riding and light walking/hiking (they are comfortable enough for that). If it's wet and cold, I wear wool socks underneath them. Lightweight Merrell sneakers for off the...

    I've been wearing mine in the city all summer, and no sign of any problems. But I do notice I keep having to tighten the straps, even mid way through a ride. But I second the "heavy as bricks"...

    I've done 100 miles on a Pocket Rocket. I love the fact that I have a bike that fits, and I don't have to worry about shipping, disassembly, getting bike back home after a trip.

    I just got back from the GAP -- Continental Travel Contact tires were the perfect mix of smooth riding surface and knobbies at the edge, and they worked on the short section of the C&O we did as...

    I replaced my helmet this year -- it was sitting upside down on the table, and I noticed it was cracked all the way through the foam. No clue how long I had been riding it like that. No major...

    Just got back from the GAP, which was a lovely ride -- you could do it on a road bike. But we did a few miles along the C&O at the end, and the quality of the ride went down straight away. The gravel...

    We've almost booked four nights in Geneva, because it's relatively close to home. Will either ride from there, or drive somewhere and start riding, or a bit of both. Biking buddy has done less riding...

    Look on Craig's List or Kijiji and see if that gives you some clues. But $600 seems a bit steep to me. I see one at $299 and one a $500, both pretty new. And then someone is trying to get rid of one...

    I looked at Bon Ton, but the dates are wrong, and biking buddy wants to combine biking with other stuff. I'm guessing Ithaca May have theatre and such things, so we need one more place.
