You would think that might be an option, but like I mentioned, it's difficult to find pedal bikes that are small enough for 2-4 year olds in most department stores. Not only that, because department store bikes are often low quality, the seemingly simple task of removing or reinstalling a crank can be difficult or…

started a topic: Anyone going to Interbike?
 
Anyone heading to Interbike this week? It seems the show may not be as well attended this year compared to past years, but it looks like it will still be a big...
A few photos from Texas and Florida, along with some info from GHORBA. Perhaps the coolest thing is how GHORBA members have been helping members' families clean up their homes after the...

Pretty cool.
Is this something you could use for your bike? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUPeIxenZi0&feature=youtu.be I saw a demo unit at Interbike last year, and based on the video above it seems the company is continuing to make progress... https://www.singletracks.com/blog/mtb-gear/6-weird-and-cool-interbike-finds/

Anyone venture out to the trails following Harvey or Irma? I know GHORBA is currently soliciting donations for Harvey trail relief. Anyone have any photos to share of the trail damage? Hopefully everyone...

replied to Sarma Bikes - to be avoided
 
Ok, so since we're talking about warranties, and specifically about carbon rim warranties... I've done some research on these and like sissypants said, they really don't mean much. For example, here's an excerpt...
Same here, I like riding in the winter better than the summer. It's cliché to say it, but dress in layers so you can adjust during the ride. If you're feeling a little...

Dude, that sucks.
I just read your two reviews of lumbar hydration packs, the Camelbak Palos and the FlashFlo, looking to purchase and wanted to know which you prefer for riding? Paul reached out to me...

Alec's review of the Tepui rooftop tent was just published today and it seems he's in the "meh" camp. :) https://www.singletracks.com/blog/mtb-gear/tepui-kukenam-sky-rooftop-tent-review/
 
Thanks for the honest review Alec. I've wondered about these rooftop tents myself: https://www.singletracks.com/blog/forums/topic/vehicle-rooftop-tents-yeah-or-meh/

Thanks Tim, this is a great perspective. I definitely think it's in readers' best interest for the media to remain skeptical because, like you said, bike companies are businesses and businesses need to make money. Personally I think the term "overrated" just refers to the idea that whenever there is a product to sell, the…
Dude, you slayed it! Nice job and excellent video!
Boost really just refers to the dimensions of the hub and doesn't say anything about fabrication, design, etc. Seems like a coincidence but now I'm curious to know if others have had problems...
