I have a Nomad too.  I bought it in 2005 for a long distance tour and thought I would never use it again considered selling it.  Several years later, I started using it for grocery shopping, and was impressed how it carries a heavy load of grocery bags.  I'm so glad I kept it.  I also now use it for short tours behind my CF bike.  You need to buy the alternate hitch to do this, but it's simple to use.  Just be sure you really won't want it ever before selling it.  I'm 68 and still finding it to be very handy.

Hey just in case someone is listed,

Me and a friend are going to the Share the Road Ride 2016 near to Los Angeles.

Just found out a lax car service to take us to Alamo St. Simi Valley with our bicycles.
I have so many good expectations of this road ride, please get in touch if you are going too!

Cheers and a weekend full of great experiences!!! 8)

Arlen here, Tours Director at Adventure Cycling. BobG is spot on with what it means to be an Adventure Cycling leader. The pay is $80/day and we use web technology to manage the tour and finances, but otherwise BobG captures the essence of the job. Passionate about cycling is great, but being passionate about facilitating others cycling experience is what is required.
Gear Talk / Re: Flying with synthetic luricant
« Last post by Walter on October 07, 2016, 03:27:35 pm »
typically (consumer) libricants are not considered flammable or corrosive; unless they are an aerosol which makes them a flammable compressed liquid.

I pulled the MSDS and with a flashpoint of 120F it is considered flammable hazmat in air transport. the only exemption would be the quantity packaged in consumer products such as a small bottle of T-9. quite a few hazmat consumer products are exempt for practical reasons.
personally I do not see a real problem here; package it in a ziplock or whatever.

Hi everyone, well I have a little experience in this sport, but I absolutely love it. When I was a kid, i remember I could spend all afternoon crossing the closest streets around the house. Then I went to collage and a few years ago started to riding almost all weekends.

I was thinking on make this more big, I would like to travel other countries with my bike. Has anyone of you started like me? with no clue! :-\

I would like to know Europe, some experience you want to share?

General Discussion / Re: Bikes into Newport News Airport
« Last post by briwasson on October 06, 2016, 06:26:27 pm »
Here's another option I forgot to mention: fly into Philadelphia (PHL) and take the AMTRAK train from there to Williamsburg or Newport News. It's about a 5-6 hour trip, and at least one train a day has roll-on bike service (you have to reserve it, though). That way you wouldn't need a connecting flight. Depending when you come in, I might be able to host you overnight, or at least help you out with logistics.
