At least they were wise enough to change nothing substantial about the Expat other than the paint job. It was a great buy last year and it will be a great buy this year also.

I guess it is hard to see but my bike lock is mounted on the seat tube. It is a TIGR titanium band lock so is very thin when viewed from the side. In theory I could reverse the lock mount and the...

I finally got around to remembering to take a picture of my bike someplace more interesting than in front of my garage door. This is my current setup. If you think it is overkill, ok. As I said,...

I am quite willing to toss a couple of Clif Bars and a ham sandwich into the back of my jersey, perhaps even my wallet, but not a spare tube, bike levers, a patch kit, a bike tool and my car keys. ...

Been riding my new Exploit for the past week or so, including a hilly 40+ miler on Sunday morning. I am definitely planning on building a more road-ish wheel set for it and saving the factory...

Mine is not the most educated opinion, but when I get my Exploit (by this weekend hopefully), I plan on building a road/light gravel set for it and saving the factory wheels/tires for more gnarly...

I did consider it, since it is only another $500, but to be honest the main reason I won't do it is because I find the appearance of the Escapade remarkably drab. Shallow, yes, but I do plan on using...

OK, thanks much! Now I just have to decide how long I am willing to wait before I just say "eff this!" and order the Tamland. This will partially be determined on how much I hate continuing to ride...
