North America / Yellowstone to Badlands - Highway 90?
« on: April 19, 2011, 10:47:43 PM »
Hey guys, I'd like to know what is the best route btw Yellowstoe NP and Badlands NP. Should I avoid highway 90? I don't mind extra miles, I do mind heavy traffic on mountain roads and no shoulders. Any tips?

I was wondering how you guys take care of your chain while you are traveling. I like to have a clean chain and when I clean it, it usually takes quite a bit of time. So I wa hoping getting some good tips from you guys, like what do you use, how - teflon spray? silicon? oil? soap? gasoline? brush? I heard a lot of things so I would like to know what you guys have to say...

Clothing for Bicycle Touring / Pit-Zip or not Pit-Zip?
« on: June 12, 2010, 07:30:01 PM »
I was thinking of buying a Marmot Gore-Tex jacket and I was debating between the Nano and the Minimalist. The main difference for me is the pit-zip (the zipper under the arm), a friend of mine swear by that feature and I was wondering if you guys think it is worth the $40 difference between the two jackets. Any experience?

I use drop down handle bars but I am thinking of getting a new touring bike with a butterfly handlebar (it's more a european thing I guess). I like the way it offers so many different positions, including a more "sitting up" position. But I had some difficulties to find any (it's a shame cyclocamping.com don't carr any  ;D). Anyway, does anyone have any models they can recommend?

Clothing for Bicycle Touring / Sandals for bicycle touring?

I would never thought about it, but I heard that quiet a lot of bicycle tourists travel with sandals and even bike with them. Apparently Shimano even do SPD sandals, I was hoping someone can give me some can give me some feedbacks and maybe suggests a few brands and/or models (SPD or not). Thx
