No doubt. I am spending the rest of the week in the Bend area so I might try to rent something nice locally and do another ride.

Make it to Post Canyon in Hood River if you can. Couple hour drive, but you will be blown away with the trails there. Some world class ****.

Being 20 minutes from the base of Bachelor makes a 2hr drive hard to stomach, but thanks for the tip.

This is true. Depends on what you are into.

Here are a couple friends of mine riding a new trail that opened last season

FAIL.... I don't know either. I thought you would only put in the #, but that didn't work.

EDIT: use "vv" and only put the number in. :[vv]128620233[/vv]

I have the bikes properly packed in bike boxes. What I need to know about in terms of airlines is "declared value", "excess value", additional insurance ... what do you do? Each bike box (total 2) is worth roughly $4k.

Six weeks ago, on the Bali trip, Virgin Australia decided to lose one of our bags. After filing a claim with receipts, we have been offered "based on condition, age, etc blah blah blah of the luggage and its contents" the international standard $9.02/lb for the bag. On the one hand, I'm fine with that, it's declared up front, it's $9.02 per pound. On the other hand, why in the mother **** do they make me fill out a detailed claim form, listing contents, providing receipts, doing all that bullshit, if they're just going to offer the $9.02 per pound anyway? We provided them with receipts (BTW: can you find a significant number of receipts for your random daily worn clothing?) totaling more than the amount they offered. Just tell me you're giving me the international standard. Don't try to cloak it in "evaluation of age and condition" bullshit.

So what should I do to cover my *** on these bike boxes? We're flying United back to the states. I am planning to declare appropriate "excess value" for each and all of our checked bags with them. If there's some form of external insurance I should look into as well, I'd love to know about it.

And any time you fly with checked baggage, check with the ticket agent at the airport about declaring a value for it. We're probably going to get $380 for our bag, which had roughly $1500 worth of stuff in it. And we own designer nothing.
As I got no replies to this, I assume I am the only one living that 1.8L lyfe.

The bikes made it to Portland. I haven't unpacked them yet, but boxes looked good so they should be fine.

For United, flying internationally with bikes boils down to this: There's nothing you can do with the airline. They had only a standard $640/bag for us. There is no excess valuation for international flights. If you want to insure the bikes during travel against loss and damage, you'll need to do it externally with some form of third party insurance.

I know renters insurance covers all my possessions when traveling. Does homeowners do something similar?

Thoughts on me basically, only riding the trainer the entire month of August, getting my 5-minute power above 400w, 300w 20-minute power, then get into CX? I dropped tonight and now I'm whining like a ------.

Do yourself a favor and go to Valmont bike park- they have a bunch of CX trails mixed through the park.




You'll be more blown away on something a little more modern. The superlight is pretty **** compared to the new stuff (flexy, poor pedaling, bad geometry)- I had a 26" wheeled superlight for a few years.
I'm still trying to figure out which bike to take if not both. It's starting to look more like I might be the only one, so I may change plans and do some camping.

I'd bring a CX bike. Roads here have lots of pot-holes and get steep. Big tires, good brakes & easy gearing would not be a bad thing.

I was able to spend last week hiking in yosemite with my wife and biking at mammoth with my college buddy. I threw some flats and DH casing 2.5" tires on my trail bike and raged the lifts all weekend long. Had an absolute black and conquered a bunch of gnarly technical terrain at the resort I hadn't been able to run last time I was there 2 years ago. Overall great week on the bike.

The heat index is 108*f right now, lol. I'll ride inside today. I ride for fun, but right now I am too embarrassed to ride or race around others.

I am either going to take the Evo with 50/34:11/28 or take the CX bike with 50/34:11/32. Both have redeeming qualities, not sure I want to pedal around the CX bike on 32mm road rubber though. The road bike turns much better than the Stigmata, the only part holding me back.

Am I on drugs, or does it look like an FSA Energy Stages arm will fit on a long-spindle SRAM BB30 crank with the Stages spindle?

You once owned more than one miata. Embarrassment, at this point, is beneath you.

It's not just SRAM, it's the whole industry. BB "standards" are infuriating. I think Cannondale started it with BB30.
