General Discussion / Malaria in Central America
« on: November 17, 2018, 01:05:19 pm »
Hey all!

We are getting ready to fly out to Mexico to begin our bike trip south with no projected end point.  We have doctor prescribed malaria meds, but I am concerned about the side effects.  I was thinking a few things that I am having a hard time verifying.  Has anyone been to Malaria zones in the dry season who can enlighten me as to what locals do?  It seems to me that nobody would have kidneys or livers if they constantly took these nasty meds.  Also, according to a second opinion here in the states I do have the latest med style.


International / How do you keep your passports/ID?

Just wondering how you all deal with documents.  I have heard some people carry copies for use in hotels.  Specifically would like info pertaining to central and south america.

Gear Talk / Tubeless?
« on: March 17, 2015, 07:15:08 am »
Just a few days ago I converted my CX bike to tubeless. I am in love with it.  Anybody tried touring with tubeless?   My initial thoughts are that it may not be good due to the sealant hardening over time, but I was able to get a good seal without any.   Still not sure about the long haul.  I guess if needed one could just put in a tube.

Looks like work is bringing me to Williamsburg area.  Any clubs/groups/shops out there?


Classifieds / PF30 Eccentric bottom bracket for sale.

I know, not normally an adventure item.  If anyone is interested in converting to a slick internally geared hub, this is your BB!  Converts any PF30 to accept a 24mm crankset.  New in package because I bought 2 and decided to only use 1.  Paid $108 after tax, asking for $75 shipped.

Gear Talk / BioLite Stove
« on: September 06, 2012, 08:38:40 pm »
I am thinking of replacing my MSR with a BioLite stove.  I have seen many opinions and a few factual reviews, but not from the bicycle touring community (usually back packers).  So, has anyone used it, and what do you think?

My initial thoughts...
1. kinda big/heavy
2. Smaller/lighter than MSR with fuel
3. Safer than liquid fuel
4. Can recharge bicycle light batteries (gooooood)
5. what if it breaks?
6. Same cost as new MSR.

Hello all!
This is my very first post and would like to do an intro and ask for advice.

I am new to the idea of bicycle adventure, but not two wheel adventure.  My girlfriend and I are attempting to make the transition from motorcycle to bicycle.  Currently we clock 15-20k miles a year (one year did 28k) and feel like the scenery and people go by too fast.  We purchased 2 Cannondale SL2 Trail bikes last winter and have been working on our saddle time, nothing overnight.  There are no major travel accessories, we have water bottles, patch kits, basic repair stuff.  Our current plan is to do the blue ridge parkway next spring.

With that said...
Could somebody tell me what common follies that new adventurers commonly make, or any advice in general?
