That said, I don't know the specifics of what they're using in the Olympics. Hope it's better than the sharpened boulders California put down last year!

Seems like everyone is pointing to Surly LHT as THE bike to have (ok a few have mentioned Trek 520). Is anyone here willing to admit to using something else? Before starting my research, I assumed I could take my Cannondale fat tube unsuspended bike, add some racks and go, but I'm guessing there are good reasons why not.
I am three thousand miles into an experiment with my transmission. Because this is the second chain on my current cogs and rings, I knew I would be replacing the entire package eventually so here's what I have done:
1. Thoroughly cleaned the chain. Thoroughly. I mean totally.
2. Thoroughly cleaned the rest of the transmssion elements.
3. Allowed everything to dry in the Idaho sun.
4. Reassembled and rode 200 miles, wiping the chain every 50 or so to remove whatever seeped and weeped out of the rollers.
5. Kept everything clean and dry by spritzing some WD40 into a rag and backpedaling the chain especailly after riding in rain or dusty conditions.
This question is really for the women out there, but I would appreciate the man's perspective too.
Going to the Sun Road is one of the finest rides in the world.+1
I doubt that the experience would be even one tenth as good by bus.
