General Discussion / What's on your iPod?
« on: May 17, 2009, 11:09:38 pm »
I'm compiling some music for a few playlists to listen to while on the quiet stretches of my upcoming TransAm ride. Anyone want to share what they like to hear while spinning the pedals during those long, hard days of climbing, etc?

Cycling in the more urban areas will not be conducive to listening and I know keeping a focus is essential, though I'm sure there will be times on the road some tunes can be justified. Let's hear what you enjoy...


General Discussion / Do we have a winner for the 2008 Bike Giveaway?
« on: February 22, 2009, 01:35:43 pm »
I've noticed over the last several months a full page ad in Adventure Cyclist magazine for the bike giveaway.
Just curious who may have won the Surly Long Haul Trucker and the ACA summer tour grand prize.

Or do we have any of the monthly winners who've had a chance to use their cool new gear?

General Discussion / Is it worth installing a kick stand?

I recently purchased a Surly Long Haul Trucker and I'm outfitting it for a Trans America ride this summer. Is it worth getting a kick stand, just wondering if this simple option is justifiable to consider for a long tour?

Gear Talk / Recommendation for bike shops in San Diego
« on: September 19, 2008, 03:10:54 pm »
I'm visiting San Diego, California for the next 4 months and looking to
purchase a touring bike and gear while here. Does anyone know of any
shops that cater towards touring bikes/cyclists?

I'm planning on doing some longer distance touring as well, if anyone
had thoughts on a quality touring bike, please let me know your
thoughts. Thanks in advance.
