Kayak Camping on the Peace River

Five guys, twenty-three miles, a little Captain and many stores! Not a bad way to spend a December weekend out and away from the city!

Converting to Tubeless

I ran into an issue recently with the new +Borealis Bikes Carbondale Rims and converting them to tubeless. I have seen this before – so I thought this would be a good post for those that run across the same issue. The rims have a fairly deep concave inner surface and that made it very difficult to get the 25mm Stan’s NoTubes tape to seat correctly without any wrinkles.

Training Partner

Knowing that in 6 weeks I will be pulling a loaded trailer up in the Colorado Mountains for my overnight trip, I thought that it would probably be a good time to start getting used to having a trailer io the back of my bike.
