Going Tubeless - air compressor?

I bought one of these on sale with a brad nailer for the same price. doesn't have a lot of air so it usually runs almost constantly when doing up a set of wheels but nothing works faster for seating and popping beads into place.

those older stumpy's cruiser-up real nice

Yeah - part of my plan for sure - was trying to find some old gum wall tires. Need to do some teardown and repacking of the bearings. Original Suntour XC Pro bear traps are still in pretty sweet shape.

Added this one to my collection - Pretty much stock 1983 Stumpjumper Sport. Picked it up from the original owner who purchased it in Edmonton in 1984.

If you can find a physio or chiropractor who works with RockTape (or other kinesio tapes) it can help in the pain by keeping everything tight especially when breathing / coughing…

Have used it many times at BC Bike Race.

Traveling With Your Cellular, Using Foreign Sim Cards and Un-Rooting Your Android

When I previously had my Rogers iPhone replaced at the apple store it was unlocked afterwards.

FYI,

Iceland air lets people on the way to Europe stopover for a week or so each way.

Btw on a samsung s3 on Telus it was $35 to have the phone unlocked then we just installed a roam mobility card to prompt the unlock code…

Traveling With Your Cellular, Using Foreign Sim Cards and Un-Rooting Your Android

When we moved to the US we had the phones unlocked by the carrier ($35 per phone from Telus), and then just put a sim card from a local carrier in. But like Switch said, check the frequencies. Verizon (better service down here) is only CDMA, which isn't compatible with our GSM Telus phones. Had to go with AT[HTML_REMOVED]T, which is slightly cheaper but it drops data all the time for no reason.

That's just the way the us cellular seems to work. Every trip we have done south of the border has lead to happiness of what coverage we get at home…

The bike touring / bikepacking thread

I've been really happy with my MSR micro rocket stove. Super light and boils fast. Simmers better than my whisper lite and a fraction of the weight. Combine with a Titan kettle for ultimate light option.
