Has anybody ever used Delta Cargo shipping to ship a bike? If so, how did the cost compare to shipping by Fedex?I personally wouldn't consider Delta because of their generally bike unfriendly baggage policies. Southwest is way more bike friendly so I'd be inclined to look into Southwest Cargo if going the airline cargo route. Delta does not deserve to be rewarded with cyclist's business.
In terms of the waypoints, is the Route and Services GPS Waypoints the appropriate download on the AC site?Yes:
I got separated from the trail several times, onto weedy, narrow single track; maybe my error.
QuoteAside from that, I noticed a few spikes on the route. These indicate to me that some route points are not connected correctly. For example, route J07740_48 near Pueblo, CO:
It approaches Pueblo to the west. It makes a U-turn back east briefly before heading south.
It continues west, turns north toward the airport, only to make another U-turn back south.
In Pueblo, it turns east before looping back west.
Something is not right about these spikes. You may need to experiment with more ways to move or add route points to keep the route continuous.
On tour last summer my SRAM 9 spd chain had about 1000 miles on it. I was climbing a steep hill using the 24T front ring when just before the summit I shifted up to the 38T middle ring. There was a rattle like a can of marbles and the bike stopped, the chain had broken. At least it looked that way. What had happened was that the Quicklink had separated. I had a spare so I was off again in short order. I asked around about this and the only explanation anybody came up with was that I was just unlucky in where the Quicklink was when I shifted. The quite a large jump from 24T to 38T may have contributed. I rarely use the 24T ring, it's my 'get out of jail free' card.I've also had my chain separate a few timesWow, how is that happening? You're not putting pins back in, are you?
