Should I have erased the word "quote" from the start of it, too?  thanks for your patience.
If you use the "reply with quote" link you should not have to do anything at all except type in your response.

When you use the quote button it adds information to the opening quote tag that allows it to display the person and post that is being quoted. In your last post with the quote attempt it looks like it had two closing quote tags. the "/" in front of the word quote signifies that it is a closing tag. The opening tag will start with the word quote and not have the /.

Click on the "reply with quote" link to the right of this post and you should see a proper example of how the quote tags should work.

The first paragraph of my message above was a quote from  another member.  I can't figure out how you guys do this quote thing so it says "quote from...."  Can anyone tell me how this works?  I'm kind of a computer "newbie".  thanks for any directions you can give!
Hi John,
On each individual post there should be a link in the upper right hand corner that says, "Reply with quote". If you choose that it should add the message you want to quote with the quote tags around it. That is what instructs the forums to add the quote from heading and show that portion of the post as a quote. When you give it a try you will see how it adds the quotes and you can remove a portion of the post at that point if you want or need to. Hope this helps!

I'm not of much help on this topic but I have heard good things about this beer. Sounds like it might be one to keep and eye out for.

Gear Talk / Re: cranks
« on: August 26, 2009, 02:36:31 pm »
Well, the crank arms themselves are most likely in good shape but the actual chain rings might be worn or the bottom bracket might need replacing. If the chain rings are so worn that the chain is starting to skip it would be wise to replace the rear cassette, chain rings and chain all at the same time as replacing individual pieces will accelerate wear on the whole set. If your bottom bracket does not spin smoothly or makes noise it may be time for that to be replaced. Your local bike shop should be able to help determine these issues.

We do have a something similar to what you are asking for already.  Hope this is what you are looking for.
Thanks for pointing it out, I didn't know this section existed. But it only answers half of what I was looking for. The way it is set up, only the folks doing the ride can add their "ride". I was hoping a section could be added to the forum for websites/blogs that members of this board have discovered could share with other readers.
We are looking into ways to highlight different blogs in the future either on our main site or our blog. In the meantime anyone could start a forum thread that lists cycling blogs and asks others to contribute. Thanks for passing along the ideas.

We do have a something similar to what you are asking for already. Over in our Ride Registry there is a link for online journals. Choosing this link will allow you to see all of the rides that people have entered that included a link to an outside journal. Hope this is what you are looking for.

This topic has been moved to South Atlantic.

http://www.adventurecycling.org/forums/index.php?topic=6099.0
This is a perfect topic for the regional discussions and I'm hoping that moving it there will help to get people to use the regional discussion areas more.

GPS Discussion / Re: Has anyone tried Sportypal?
« on: June 10, 2009, 10:49:05 am »
Thanks for all the great info about your Vista Hcx. It sounds like a product I should look into further.

I'm running firefox 3.0.10 and IE 7.0.573.11.

I have not tried any of the phone tracking apps.  I do have a Garmin eTrex Vista Hcx that I quite like and use as my cycling computer (among many other things).

I load up the GPX files into a web hosting account (I use the free Google Pages), run a Javascript function on them, and then generate maps to display.  If you or anyone else is interested in displaying their GPS tracks on Google Maps for free, I will be happy to provide detailed instructions.

For example: http://waynemyer.googlepages.com/20090428.htm
How do you like the eTrex Vista Hcx when using it as a cycling computer. Do you mount it to your handlebars? If so does it seem rather larger when placed there? In general how does it compare to a regular cycle computer when out riding. I would love to be able to bring the data home but was hoping for something very small in size or at least close to cycle computer size that would allow me to record way points and other data perhaps to a MicroSD card. 

I tried to check out your map link but I'm just getting a blank map in both firefox and ie.
