In the past, there were front derailleurs that had shallow inner plates and would work with "half-step" crank gearing but they are no longer common.

That's right for current temperature at your exact location and for that info a little zipper-pull or similar thermometer is truly local. However, the OP also wanted the daily temperature history and the cell phone app is about the best way to get that.If you carry a cell phone and remain in an area with coverage, your phone should have a weather app that will give you the current temperature and projection for that day. You would also have internet access (assuming you have a data plan) to the various commercial or government weather sites for both forecasts and history.The problem with that is that a lot of the time on tour when I have cared the most about what the temperature was I was on top of a pass or somewhere that would be a lot different than the nearest weather station which even if you count all the little personal ones on WeatherUnderground, might be far away and thousands of feet different in elevation. The differences can be pretty substantial.
......we were both disappointed in the dinner at the Syracuse Zoo.This opens so many opportunities for wisecracks I don't know where to begin.....
Dave - I live in the South Hills also....Bridgeville area. Where are you? The getting-back-to-your-car part of RAGBRAI seems like it will take some effort to make it work. But I do plan on attending one day and giving it a shot.John,
May in Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana you can easily get 40s at night. Likely upper 40s. June in Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, east Colorado expect lows of 50s likely.I can tell you from personal experience that overnight temperatures in the high 30's have occurred in mid-Ohio in mid-June.
We had a friend who cycle-camped using 2 or 3 layers of bubble wrap for a pad. How we laughed. It was uncomfortable and cheap. He reckoned he could have made a 5ft thick mattress of bubble wrap for the cost of our Neo-Air.Didn't the "popping" every time he turned over keep all the others awake?
The initial finding that helmets protect your heat have never been replicated in any good scientific studyOK, I realize this is a contentious issue and the data in favor of helmet use is mostly anecdotal since it's impossible to replicate an accident with and without a helmet and compare the outcomes. No one has done controlled, instrumented crash studies I'm aware of. That said I can add two anecdotes to the evidence as I have destroyed two helmets in bike accidents.
