    Those last few posts are edging towards the fine line that gets these threads closed, which would really be a shame.

    I don't know that I'd use the ezHitch on a horizontal dropout. The trailer is simply trying to pull the wheel out of the dropout whereas pedaling force is trying to force the wheel into the frame.

    As a motorcycle journalist, and former Africa Twin owner, I'm still waiting by the mailbox for useful details to be delivered. So far, all of these mini media releases have been unsubstantiated...

    From what I've been told, the XT1's EVF is considerably better than that of the XE-1. I do find that I feel that same slight disconnect with the actual image that you speak of. I feel the "blackout"...

    I can't do the desert heat. I've tried. I've made a good effort. It occurred to me recently that one of the best long-haul trips I've done in years was in torrential rain for three days with temps in...

    Not the bears I've sprayed, which have been many as a guide in AK. And statistics and research have much to say about the success of spray over guns as it relates to human injury and death. This is...

    The other key element to this is relative to fit. Not all boots fit all feet, so recommendations have to be taken with a lot of latitude. There is also a tremendous variance in boot quality which...

    Excellent point and another viable option to increase safety with or without a weapon in the mix.

    Hahaha...hard to argue that one. For the record, I agree with everything you have expressed in this important exchange. I do believe this is a poignant topic for all travelers.

    That exact scenario...

    There are almost too many good recommendations to be made to have them be productive. Your first step is to decide what type of boots you're after. That will be determined by the terrain you will be...

    I don't really think that's true. If you look at most bikes on shop floors today, then look back at the bikes from years past, you have to reach back a solid 7-10 years before you begin to see bikes...

    There's no way around not addressing the suspension settings anymore. Someone, either the shop or the consumer, has to set it up. Which is really not any different than the same procedure used to air...

    Heh, like I said, something about this warranty claim smelled of foul fish. I am "Quito" on mtbr. The bellow is the latest post from the OP with the warranty grievance:

    I managed a bike shop not all that long ago. A dude came in for a warranty, we made the call, everything was put in motion to remedy the situation within minutes. But, the dude ran to mtbr as fast as...

    Here are some other shots taken this weekend at our local mtb race where my friend and Salsa sponsored rider Kaitlyn not only beat the entire field of women in the 50 mile event, she did it on a...

    Not saying he doesn't have a legit complaint, but it seems like a wee bit of drama has been infused into the discussion for good measure. I've seen that over the course of 30 years in the bike...

    Warranty issues happen. I've seen my share in 30 years of riding. That thread seems like a typical mtbr rant, though. I have a hard time giving it much credibility. Salsa will warranty the problem,...

    Fortel, just make sure the fatbike you get includes a Bluto. For me, a rigid fatbike is about as bumpy as it gets unless you ride with extremely low psi, which most don't in dry (non-snowy)...

    This is all much ado about nothing, and I suspect it's little more than bike journalists reaching for editorial fodder. I do it too.

    The reality is, every time a gear is added to a drivetrain, a...

    That's not true at all.

    I was recently lambasted by one of my friends who is an advocate of carrying when ever allowed. He went so far as to say I'm foolish, reckless, and destined to be the...

    I understand what you're suggesting, Beemerpilot. Another example might be the horrible murder of the Japanese woman at the waterfalls at Havasupai in the Grand Canyon in 2006. Putting that in...

    The real talking point here, as it has been for decades, is the dollar value relative to the point of diminishing returns.

    This is most easily digested with road bikes. Road bikes are all about...

    I would caution you against assuming I have a liberal mindset just because of my one position on carrying a firearm. That's the sticky wicket that makes these discussions head banging exercises that...
