    I dislike buying clothes, but thankfully weight loss is making it necessary. I'm trying to "stage" replacements carefully; getting my dress pants tailored is cheaper than buying new for now. Casual...

    I just finished 273 miles in 5 days on a Motobecane CXX. It is my first "real" bike, so I can't compare it to a rb, but it served me well on my supported tour. My favorite CX moment was when I was...

  10. My Story - I hope it encourages someone

    In March of this year I was pretty much a slug. 335 lbs., no exercise, eating horribly, etc., etc. I got an email about a 250, 5 day bike tour some acquaintances were doing in northern lower...

    I need a new FD cable this week; leaving for a 5 day ride from Ludington to Mackinaw City on Friday. I'd like Slickwires for my Force road shifters. Does anyone know of a shop that stocks...
