    I carry a six outlet strip when I tour now. It seems that most of my packing space it taken up with tech gadget cords.

    If your touring in the states on mostly paved roads the Fuji will suit you just fine. It's a pretty decent bike.

    Most of us do much too much worrying and planning our bike tours. Especially when we are riding in the States.

    Chipcom

    Chipcom was a regular poster here in the commuter forums but has not been heard from for over a year. Anyone have any news on him?

    The Dog's Life.

    Since retirement a few years ago I have been living the life of a spoiled dog. I'm sure that if my car had feelings and could talk it would accuse me of cheating. I drive so infrequently that I...

    Soccer is my main and favorite sport and even I get upset at some of the diving. But as a long time coach and player, I have no qualm about telling my players that if an opponent is dumb enough to...

    BTW. One bike was not enough for my retirement. I bought a nice road bike when I retired and a couple of years later I got a deal that was too good to pass up on a single speed. The gearing was...

    There is not a whole lot to see on the GAP in general. It's mostly riding through the woods and along a river. The quaint little towns can be a nice place to take a break or have lunch, but many of...

    There is not a lot of profit on bikes. Bike shops make most of their money on accessories and repairs. If you find a bike you like, buy it. Don't haggle to much over fifty bucks.

  25. Weirton, WV to Cumberland Md by way of Pittsburgh

    This was a supported tour but I spent most of the time riding alone. That often happens and I'm fine with it. I added a new twist mixing text photos and videos on my crazyguyonabike page
