Packing question for the bike-packers.

I have a Ridley Kanzo Adventure which I mainly ride for fire roads and gravel, but it has multiple mounts designed for overnight trips as well. I'm also a backpacker for context.

I went directly to drill-and-glue. I was suspicious about whether a deeper punch would really hold the loose piece in place, and I was concerned about a new punch becoming a hole. The epoxy solution...

Solution

For those who may have this same issue with Mavic rims, I have solved the rattle -- drilled a small hole in the rim, prepared some epoxy (super glue is too brittle when dry), and used a 1ml syringe...

Not likely. Just because someone is willing to pay more for an item in a private party transaction doesn't mean the item is necessarily more valuable.

Weird wheel rattle - but only when under pressure.

I have a front Mavic Open Pro rim on my Bottecchia that has a very specific rattle that sounds like I lost a nipple in it when I built it (which I don't remember). It's in a very specific spot in the...

Nova and Classic on the same day in 2023?

One concern is that I noticed the Nova Eroica website shows the ride on the same day as the classic ride, September 17th. I wonder if that's a typo or if they are combining the rides on the same day...

I ride 35s on my aero bike and I think they're a good compromise between speed on the flats and lightness on the climbs. I also got tired of fighting cross winds when I used to run 45s.
