Finally there's more than 1cm of snow in Montreal! Of course, I'm riding my winter bike to work.

Cool night shot in the snow! One thing I don't miss about Montreal, the winters there! But I miss almost everything else about it.

Camping in some other part of Idaho.

The Tetons.

Buffalo in Yellowstone.

Top of the Bighorn Mountains in Wyoming.

Giant wind turbine in Iowa. I'm the spec at the bottom of it.

Here's an old Viscount I picked up on the side of the road for five bucks. Guy sold me an old comfort bike for two bucks that hopefully I can get my Mom to ride this summer before she Marlboro's herself to death..

Second pic is a nice wettish day shortly after I had went over the bars from a very fine ice topping on a gravel road.

Third pic is after my first cyclocross race about a month-and-a-half ago. Kiddos loved it

I am absolutely green with envy - I've wanted to take a long, cross-country trip like this for years but can never get enough time away from the Navy to do it! Two more years and retirement - if my body holds up! - will finally allow me to have a "life altering experience" like yours.

Bravo Zulu for an epic achievement

Thank you. I love the way its appearance turned out.

I haven't ridden it more than 15 miles but I have started calling it the black snake. It's a real eye-opener, meaning that if I don't keep my eyes open it will feed me some pavement which I'd rather not taste. Quick to accelerate , quick to turn , quick to stop . Tektro put some magic in those brakes.

If your trip is anything at all like mine was, two more years of waiting will be worth it. We met a couple in Yellowstone who have been touring almost non-stop since they retired in the late 80's.

Had a day off yesterday, and we got snowed in. I spent the day chatting with my new girl and checking out BF:



There are three bikes in that room, by the way

Well, it's good to relax, but tipping a few before your maiden voyage on rollers probably isn't the best call.

Make sure your tires are fully inflated. Not sure, but in the pic they look a little UI. Also, is the front roller as far back as it can go? It should be directly under the natural contact point of the front tire.

The key is to keep up your cadence. The gyro action is what keeps you upright, so if you start to feel wobbly and stop pedaling as you might do on the road, it's over. For the same reason, you probably will find it easier when you're clipped in.

Keep at it. I like rollers quite a bit and can easily ride them for 45 mins or so with no issues, even mastered no-hands recently, which is pretty nice for giving the sit-bones a rest.

At a minimum, it appears you're keeping your cat amused, which is important of course.

^ +1 on positioning the front roller under the center of the front tire. I have to say that photo scares me a bit. I'd hate to think what might happen if your cat gets a bit too curious about those shiny, spinning wheels...
