Re: Oct 27 - Canada Cup Trail

I might join you but have to be home by 10. I took a look and 48km- Ron did it 2:25, so doable as long as we don't dawdle.

Re: Air compressor for bike tires?

There is always a sale on at Canadian Tire. The larger the capacity, the more tires you can do without the pump turning back on in the midst of trying to seat your tubeless tires. I have a one gallon compressor, which sometimes I find limiting. There is also often on sale a schrader + presta inflato...

Re: Eco Underground parking for bikes

How does it handle unicycles?

Looks cool, but suspect there might be some local engineering hurdles. Doesn't look like they have built many (1/2 dozen?), but bleeding edge hasn't stopped the City of Victoria before. Is the lack of secure covered parking keeping people off their bikes?

Re: Goose/Lochside/E&N Safety PSA

Slow down out there on the Goose. This past Sunday, my wife and 4 friends were riding on the Goose and were passed by the TS Sunday ride. She was squeezed right when a TS rider shot through the gap while another rider was passing her (ie, there was someone passing her on the left, then another rider...

Re: What the future gravel bike looks like?

Add the lefty from the Slate- unfortunately they don't sell that alone.
Wonder what it would be like on a cross course?

Re: Recommendations for a new bike

My wife has the Trek Checkpoint and it's a great bike, though you will have to buy the frame and do a custom build for Di2. Lot's of room for big tires, or skinny ones. For the Cross Fondo she rode 38mm knobbies and didn't flat. Not quite as light as your Domane, but loads more clearance and many bo...

World's fastest cyclist

The WSJ did a documentary about Denise Mueller-Korenek's record setting 184 mph ride in September last year. When you have 20 minutes- absolutely crazy.

Re: Gravel bike shopping-bot

Somehow my detailed reply disappeared into the ether.....this will be less detailed 'cus I don't have the time to do it twice. Look for big tire clearance, at least 1:1 gear ratio, lots of attachment points for bottles and racks (especially on the carbon forks for racks) and fender attachments. Get ...

Re: BC Bike Race

Great report Geoff- I'm glad you guys had a blast. You had me laughing several times reading your story. Very cool you had a Japanese XTR engineer adjust your derailleur.

Now if you can get to more of that drinking beer and eating all the food, cross season will be much better for me.
