North America / Highway 1 between San Francisco and LA

I am considering biking from SF to LA this coming fall. Apparently it is a popular route and I am sure it must be very scenic. But how is it by bicycle? It seems like it may not be as much fun when done on a bicycle considering that it is only a two-lane road with probably a lot of tourist traffic more interested in looking at the vistas than paying attention to bicycles on a windy road. Did any of you bike that road? Am I right? If so, I may consider smaller inland roads. No beaches there but it looks like there are plenty of nice national parks. Any thoughts?

I know, it drives me crazy to see bikers with barely any light at night!!! Don't they ever drive cars to see how dangerous it is??? Now that I've tried the Planet Blinky, I'll never use anything else!

Hi Big Lew, nice to have you here. I have a question, I am impressed with the "no breakdowns such as spokes, axles etc" so I was wondering what axle and what kind of spokes do you use? Good luck with your upcoming trip and If you end up using a trailer, I'd be interested to see what you think...and I'm probably not the only one  :D

I think outer pitch tents are better if it is raining.

I think he meant that the inner part pitches first as it is the way most (if not all) Ferrino tents are set-up.

Kilgore, I'm curious, why would you recommend the Steripen over the Miox?

The Bicycle / Has anyone heard of a broken frame?
« on: June 23, 2010, 11:41:08 AM »
I often hear the debate about aluminum vs steel frames and one of the arguments in favor of the steel frame is that it is easier to solder steel, so if you're in the middle of nowhere you can fix your bike. On the other hand, I never heard of anyone breaking their frame. Has anyone had or heard of experiences with broken frames?
