Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Seriously....I have been thinking about a fall tour in the state using several trails. I might start and end in Fargo, doing a big loop as far north as Bemidji them heading down to Walker and Bowlus before turning northwest, roughly following the I094 corridor back to Fargo. It's all part of an Adventure Cycling route.


Do you think starting the third Saturday in September (9/16) would be o.k. weather-wise?

I hope so because I'll be camping on the north shore of Lake Superior Sept 21-25. I would expect cold nights with nice temps in the low 60s during the day.

So, dude is asking $645 for the 2011 QR Kilo. I see a NOS one online (in the xs size only) at $949. I'm thinking the used bike is probably worth about $450. Agree? Disagree?

I could deal with that. I think I have post traumatic sun disorder from my Montana trip last month. Whenever I am in the sun I want to find a dark, cold room.


I do need new arm warmers though. I somehow managed to lose mine climbing Going to the Sun.

No no no. You are doing it all wrong!

Buy the bike and then post in the 41 asking if you got a good buy.

Got it??

You are learning. Post once with a poll that you messed up. Then repost with the poll done correctly.

I wouldn't go higher than $500, unless it comes with race wheels.

I know. I'll have to sue them.

I already took the Trek apart too, and a series of races are coming. Will have to do them on the steel bike. At least I have an excuse because my fitness has gone down the drain after several weeks of only riding during the weekend.

In relation to this:


I had to go download the source to my fav compiling game today, SDL-ball.

Like, I had to go in and make some improvements for my awesomeness. The score was only stored in an 'int' type (so would get to just over 2 billion, and then turn to -2 billion over and over). I changed it to and 'unsigned long long' which will get me to 18,446,744,073,709,551,615. Now to see how long it takes me to get there. Gonna be doing a lot of compiling...

Sounds like you are among a good deal pending what you find when you see it. Good luck.
