Classifieds / BOB Ibex 28 FS
« on: April 27, 2011, 04:32:35 pm »
I have a BOB Ibex trailer that is in excellent condition, never ridden off road. It has signs of wear along the rails where it has been parked, but other than that it is in great shape. I have a set of Schwalbe Big Apples on the trailer with thorn resistant tubes (plus spare). I also have an extra set of skewers which I can mail to you, plus additional clips, a must for going anywhere with the trailer. The BOB bag is included but shows much more signs of wear. I am a long distance cyclist and will be in town within the next 2 weeks. I love the trailer but am making some gear changes and thus will let it go. $300 OBO, plus shipping.

General Discussion / DIY Tips
« on: December 20, 2010, 05:15:07 pm »
As the end of the year approaches and lots of folks are planning their first long distance trip for 2011, I thought it would be nice to share DIY tips with everyone.  I have been tweeting about this topic and thought I would bring it here as well.  An example:

I use lots of Olive Oil on my long distance treks, but hate carrying glass bottles.  So I discovered the the .5 and 1 liter Platypus hydration bladders work great.  They are BPA free, compress down to nothing as you use up the oil, and are virtually indestructible.  Plus, a little warm water and soap washes them out after you are worried that they might be getting  little grimy.  So, how about you, any tips?

I will compile a list and put it up on my site as an example of how you can save money by doing it yourself.

Happy Holidays,


Routes / West to East, Early Spring

I will be heading out for an around the country (Southern Route, Pacific Route, Northern Route) tour this December, starting in Fl.  I am concerned that the route from Washington State heading east will be an issue in early April, and in fact may not be passable at all.  Are there any options for avoiding the snow passes that people are aware of?  Alternatively, are there ways to go through some of those areas with the appropriate gear? My guess is that I will arrive in Seattle around mid march, depending on how much time I spend in the South West.

Thanks in advance,
