Looks good.
The fact that you can take it apart is a plus, but at the same time it also means it could go off in the backcountry. More screws and adjustments ~= more space for malfunction. But I'm aware that they built it with that in mind and made it bombproof.
Anyway I'm excited about the reviews.

Joplin seatpost

Take a look on this one: Kind Shock i900. It's quite popular among Euros and doesn't have the annyoing play
I don't know if they are available in North America, in Europe they are much cheaper than the joplin. In fact die KS costs about 128 Euros =~ 220 CAD

Their webiste is down at the moment, but here's a pic:

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

While doing the forecast for the Alps, I took a look at North American and what I found out made me jealous even right now.
Next weekend Whistler area expects sub -20 [HTML_REMOVED]#176;C. So bring your fancy down jackets.

Look at this:

Every line represents an output of the Global Forecast System for temp/precip in about 1500m.
Upper lines are the temp in about 1500m, scale's on the left in degree celsius. Lines beneath are precipitation on the ground, scale's on the right in mm/6h. In this case it's snow of course.

From my point of view this forecast is credible up to the 18th. Then the lines diverge too much (= it may stay shivering cold or either it warms up again to like current temps). So this plot is not plausible for ~19th and afterwards.

Hey Lee,

How good are they for touring?

One small water bottle for the approach and ascent, done before it's too cold, one thermos with tea for afterwards/summit/backup.

Ken Block can Drive!

Obviously it took him several times to clean some of the moves as the skid marks prove.

Is he racing the WRC too?

More than bikes. For car people.

Cool project. Thanks for keeping us informed. No better feeling than doing it yourself.

Gearboxes are for beginners. Everybody, let's build our own waggons: http://jalopnik.com/5069251/exclusive-i-am-the-guy-with-a-lamborghini-in-the-basement
