Photochromatic glasses is a way to go. Unless you riding in the desert a lot. I use mine in any conditions day and night. Sure, glasses do fog up and get dirty. To...

I’d say for the cost of durable electrical tape you can buy a dedicated neoprene sleeve for your chainstay. It should cost around $5. Maybe $10 maximum. In general tape is too thin...
One more reason some folks don’t ride at night - some parks/trails are officially closed after dark or like 10 pm. And motivation, of course. When 0F outside it’s hard to push yourself outside. Yet those are usually are most memorable rides.

replied to What is going on with the GT brand?
 
Didn't you notice all those "defects" mentioned before swiping your card in the store? If so, you most likely had a remote idea how much would upgrade cost. I'm not defending GT...
Wow! I've heard someone was working on the bikepacking route that include all 14ers in Colorado. This guy definitely went further. Applauding to his effort.
I'd give these a try, provided it will be priced reasonably. Too bad that regular patches won't work.

This trail is very similar to Rock Lake or Nicolet National Forest. It's a constant workout over rocks and roots....

I'm impressed with quality and flow of these trails. Climbing up isn't difficult and going down is pure fun. There's...

replied to Vehicle rooftop tents: Yeah! or Meh?
 
I'm with @mongwolf that every bit of your gear should be used in different applications. There were few occasions when I found difficult to find a spot for my tent and rooftop...
I met few guys who smoked before riding downhill, "just to take the edge off". I followed them for a mile and wasn't impressed with what I saw. It didn't help them to go faster for sure. Obviously it's a personal choice to use or not to use. I prefer to stay sober while riding…
Not many biking videos over 10 minutes long I've seen lately. This one is truly interesting to watch. Congratulations, Colton, on successful race.

replied to Is cyclo cross taboo?
 
Hi, @xcxc. I don't think it's taboo on here. Singletracks is one of the best online cycling community I ever seen and many guys riding gravel/cx bikes when trails are wet. I'm not...

I'd say go for the best bike your money could buy. Also reserve some cash for gear - helmet, pump, patch kit, shorts, gloves etc could cost quite a sum alone. Used market...
 
Cool tips. Using construction heat gun to make toasts is genius :)
Well done video. Especially considering what bike he used and what video equipment it was filmed with. But I'm sure there's gotta be even older videos.

Cool video. I had the same question about the sun, while watching your video :) i like this vivid colorful landscape.
You should also check true fat bike (better with suspension) for comparison. Those plowing thru anything, but to be fair at a slower speed :)
Greg, looks like you've touched the wasp nest with this article. :) I rode plus bike only for half a day and found all points you brought to be true. Second half of the day rode my 29er with more aggressive tires on the same trail and it felt much faster and better cornering. About…
Interesting results. Never seen anyone with phone, gps and cyclocomputer mounted on the bike.
