    Question for the Mr. Pink owners, or the fender saavy

    You'll need a very long rear fender to not spray the bike trailer. I have used some rubber stair tread material to make a mud flap for more coverage. I dont like plastic fenders. Steel or aluminum fenders have a rolled edge that directs spray downwards. They mounts up way more solidly too.

    Roadbike groupset newbie question

    That should work just fine. Actually any 8, 9 or 10 shimano derailleur should work.

    Jim's training thread

    Cool build. Front load bias works great only when paired with a low trail steering geometry. Feels very stable but responsive. Nitto M-12 with boxy handlebar bag makes a lot of sense, easy snacking & changing clothes without stopping. Quick release decaleur for bringing the bag into the...

    2018 NJ Rando series

    I've wanted to try an Arrow ride for years. I have a riding buddy who would be a great teammate and is into trying one this year. We both have lots of long distance experience. If we could find another teammate I'd love to commit to some long team training rides, design a great route and...

    help me design a mtb skills course

    I've been working on a pump track in a scrubby section of my yard for a couple years now. So far, its a loop about 200' long w/ some crossovers, a double & tabletop jump, all rollable. Super fun/challenging for me and my 4 year old can rail everything on his balance bike. My take aways are...

    CX/gravel grinder for adventures.

    Compared to race tires, high volume, low pressure tires get way less flats. My last pair of 650bx42 Hetre’s got exactly 1 flat after 6k miles when the rear was getting very thin. A lot of commuting miles over littered streets, though I ride pretty far left. I run them around 40psi. Sharp crap...

    I've ridden them in 25c, nice quick tire for smooth roads but I'd be dodging acorns and rough stuff. What size did you get? Let us know how they work out.

    Zackees Turn Signal Gloves

    I like these blinker gloves, pretty slick design. I wouldn't use em, I'm happy enough with a glo-glove on my left glove during the dark months. I think a blinker is a little overkill for right turns. Over the past year I have had 2 frightening unexpected passes on my left when I was...

    Yet another tire thread...

    I love doing the kind of rides you have planned. You could not pay me to ride a tire w/ a puncture belt, it is just not needed, especially far off the beaten path where you will be. You also dont really need much or any tread/knobs. I climb super steep gravel roads all the time on fat road...

    Yet another tire thread...

    I think you can get the best of both worlds. Overbuilt commuter tires with puncture resistance layers are no fun on the road or rail trail. IME you're less likely to flat on a rail trail or some back road than out on a well traveled road anyway. A nice fat supple tire at the right pressure...

    Yet another tire thread...

    Something with a lot of air volume and nice supple sidewalls would be great for the type of riding you envision. A slick would be fine, I don't think you need much tread. Any compass tires: would ride great. Or on the...
