  • Posted in thread: Thanks driver! You didn't have to do that, but it made my ride better. on 07-19-2016 at 08:37 PM
    At about 110mi of a 132mi ride after a lot of climbing over the last 50mi I was wiped and out
    of water. I stopped at a turnout and set my bike against a big boulder and lied down on the
    tarmac complet...

  • Posted in thread: QBP Choosing Big Box over LBS on 07-03-2016 at 01:54 AM
    why can't an LBS sell as cheaply as REI? Most REI products sell at full retail. While there are
    sales here and there and there's a yearly rebate, my LBS also has a rebate program for regular
    buyers. F...

    It's understandable to react with anger if you loathe guns or with a smile if you're a gun guy
    but in truth the most important observation here is somewhere along the lines of "I don't know
    why he mig...

  • Posted in thread: Bike rack (Hitch Mounted) on 07-01-2016 at 06:02 PM
    Personally I'm not a fan of racks that put tires into trays. I'm sure there are good reasons
    for them but I find Yakima racks that hang the bikes easier and more versatile. You can hang
    the bikes this...

    It's obviously a quality bike and which of the Trek to get is simply a matter of what you can
    afford and how often your wife will ride it. Always spend as much as you can afford if it's
    going to be ri...

    I can't speak to the specific bikes but I would caution about disc brakes. There value comes
    into play in wet or rainy conditions on long downhill rides or super muddy conditions where rim
    brakes migh...

    In Tucson there is a weekly night ride starting near the Univ. that gathers dozens of people to
    ride through the area. We went one time and at least three people had speakers on their bikes
    blaring a ...

    My wife and I beat our way into a 15mph hr wind yesterday with speeds down to 9mph for some
    stretches but were rewarded with 28mph after we turned around. Today I went out solo along
    Chena Hot Springs...
