I'm sorry, but what do you mean by not touching down?
Ah, toughing down. My intention was that the tires would do their part to keep the bike upright. However, if you stop and rely on your shoes to keep you upright on ice that's not necessarily happening .

ahhh, gotcha, of course.
I remember as a young teenager with my friends taking our bikes onto the frozen skating canal. We'd get going reasonably fast pedalling, tben put both boots down on the ice as you turn, and using both feet with ramrod legs as outriggers, we could spin around doing rotations (boots sliding on ice)

was a gas

hey, today I used a rear roller and biked 50kms to go buy a used Jones bar, so there's hope for me yet (from being uncool)

good morning narb, was that curious comment aimed at me? Not a particularly neighbourly thing to write.

Coming back again

Hi there everyone, hope you are doing great (even with this weird times we have).

Has been a while since I posted here

Now getting ready to go back to the road, for a short trip with a good friend (200 km or 125 miles), feeling excited and happy about going back on the road, and experience what I think is the best way to travel.

Here is my bicycle update. Upgraded from a full iron 26" rim heavy and loaded to death (weighted once to load on a plane, bike was 25kg, cargo 40, yest it's a lot, I didn't believed it, but have checked and it was accurate). Now I have an aluminum 29" with just back pannier and a dry bag on top.

Sending you all happiness and good wishes.

These were taken in China a few years ago. It was an amazing tour through Thailand, Laos, across N Vietnam and across southern China. This is my Surly LHT.
